Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies. The center consists of a group of scientists "dedicated to understanding the problem of seasonal to interannual and decadal climate fluctuations with special emphasis on the role of interactions between earth's oceans, atmosphere and land surface." The center is sponsored by the Institute of Global Environment and Society, Inc. (link verified 25 June 2008)

Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change.  The center "was created to disseminate factual reports and sound commentary on new developments in the worldwide scientific quest to determine the climatic and biological consequences of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content."   The center is headed by Craig D. Idso, author of  The Greening of Planet Earth: Its Progression from Hypothesis Theory (1997) and Future Climate and The Precautionary Principle: The Other Side of the Story (1997).  In the latter report, prepared for Western Fuels Association, Inc, Idso says "it would appear that the mean temperature of the globe is currently considerably below its optimum, and that a little warming would be of great benefit to the biosphere."  According to his "precautionary principle, "we should encourage activities that tend to warm the planet, or, at the very least, refrain from adopting policies designed to arbitrarily discourage the utilization of coal, natural gas and oil as modern industrial fuels."  (link verified 25 June 2008)

Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN). The Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) was established in 1989 as an independent non-governmental organization to provide information that would help scientists, decision-makers, and the public better understand the changing relationship between human beings and the environment.  In 1998, CIESIN became a center within Columbia University's Earth Institute.  From its offices at Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory campus in Palisades, New York, CIESIN continues to focus on applying state-of-the-art information technology to pressing interdisciplinary data, information, and research problems related to human interactions in the environment.  CIESIN is actively engaged in a number of research areas that address the impacts of human activities and institutional arrangements on the environment, and in turn, the ways in which environmental change affects human health and welfare. The following list represents broad areas in which CIESIN is conducting research. (link verified 25 June 2008)
