This report looks at the latest example of our crazy energy prices killing off jobs.

This article gives the details. Basically, the German leadership (currently considering bailing out Greece) has realised that their CO2 reduction commitments are simply going to cost german jobs, while other countries benefit at their expense. Surely it cannot be long before the UK government comes to the same obvious conclusion and quietly dumps the UK targets.

This article refers to a survey of over 400 farmers showing that 60% of them indicate that they are unaffected by climate change. This is despite the alarmists claiming that "climate change is accelerating" and that "the evidence is clear", etc, etc. How odd that the very people who depend on the weather are so unobservant!

This article is quite lengthy and somewhat mathematical in part, but it is still quite easy to follow and gives a logical argument why the world will face global cooling over the coming 20 years. It also predicts that the 21st century will result in virtually no warming at all.

Lord Lawson makes the connection here. The link, of course is that the forecast for both the ash cloud and the climate are being made using computer models. It is becoming clear that these models are flawed.

This report gives a detailed look at the US temperature measuring stations. It should be widely read, but alas it is one of the public's best kept secrets. The disturbing findings by themselves should be enough for any fair-minded person to have serious doubts about the temperature records. When we add in the errors to the IPCC report and the evidence from the climategate emails, you would have to be mad not to have real concerns. But our government and the opposition parties just aren't interested in looking at any of it.

This is the question at the heart of the debate on global warming. This article looks at the temperature rise in the different states in the USA which range from +1.4C to -0.4C. The effects of the differences seems, according to the article, to be hardly noticeable. Of course that is the opposite of the predictions by those who promote the 'solutions' to global warming.

This report explains How some UK wind turbines are already subsiding. So apart from the fact that these objects are not going to produce a sufficient consistent supply of electricity, they are also likely to need very high maintenance to add even further to the cost of electricity. In fact the cost of all this is estimated by the government to be around £150 billion, which is almost as much as the size of the UK deficit. But will any of our politicians cancel all this? I think we all know the answer.

The second report into the leaked CRU emails has just published its rather sketchy findings. Here is a brief overview by the Global Policy Foundation, which points out that the overall finding which exonerates them has within it some criticism which is all the more unexpected coming from such apparently biased people.

This article looks at this dilemma in the light of the World Bank decision to grant a loan for a South African Coal Power plant. The conclusion reached by the writer seems to be that poverty alleviation trumps stopping global warming - in other words there is no real imperative to 'save the planet'. So there we have it!

In yet another example of reality trumping global warming, the World Bank has approved a loan for a new coal-fired electricity power plant. Here is the story from EUReferendum.
