This article reveals the ridiculous and hypocritical policies of the government towards its environmental policy. At home we demand our energy companies comply with the strictest emission policies in the world, and at the same time we give aid money to third world projects to build coal-fired power plants to produce cheaper energy to supply our competitors.

This storyserves as a warning that there are strong forces at work in government to try to drive up the price of fossil fuel energy by any means in their attempt to get rid of it in favour of unreliable and expensive wind turbines.

This article by Steve McIntyre on the Climate Audit Blog gives details of a ruling by the UK Information Commissioner forcing the University of East Anglia to hand over its Temperature Station Data, which it had tried every trick in the book to avoid doing. Now after almost 2 years of dogged determination and various appeals Professor Jonathan Jones (Not of course to be confused with Prof Phil Jones, head of the UEA Climate Research Unit) has finally got the decision. When you read this case you have to wonder why a publicly funded university doing research into a matter of such importance should wish to conceal such fundamental information from other academics - that is unless they have something to hide!
This article refers to the extra cost of building a host of new gas-fired power stations as back up for the thousands of wind turbines currently being built with massive subsidies pushing the cost of electricity ever higher. When will the public realise they are being fleeced and seriously complain, or even take to the streets?

This article looks at the words of Sir Paul Nurse, the President of the Royal Society who in a recent article claims to believe there should be more openness and transparency in science. The writer takes Sir Paul at his word and call on him to put pressure on the IPCC to deliver. It seems clear that they have no intention of doing so.

The murky waters of EU policy making and the role of NGO's was exposed in this article. It does the cause of renewable energy no favours to see it, even though we know it goes on.

UK fuel is among the dearest in the world, so if you feel fed up why not sign the Fair Fuels UK petition to get the system changed. I know - you're thinking the government won't listen. But the alternative is to do nothing. Here is the website.
Here is the story in the Guardian. If it's true it looks like good news. At last politicians prepared to stand up to the nonsense.

Prof. Phil Jones (he of the CRU email scandal) is often quoted as saying that there has been "no statistically significant warming since 1995". Now he has come forward to say that when 2010 is included in the data the warming has become "significant", and this new statement from him is being widely quoted on pro-warmist blogs. Here on the excellent GWPF website is an article that discusses this particular statistic in detail. Interestingly the article points out that there is no doubt that from 2001 to 2010 there has still been no statistically significant warming, so tell that to the warmists.

This article explains that the new English school curriculum is getting back to basic science, and there is no place for items like 'climate change'. At last some common sense from someone in charge of our school syllabus. Science, not speculation is what students need.

This article in the Express refers to the views of climate scientist David Evans who maintains that the effect of CO2 on climate is small. Now we have had no statistically significant global temperature change for the past 15 years (according to Prof Phil Jones of UK Climate Research Unit) people are starting to take more notice of him.

Following on from the earlier articles we have now had two more significant pieces in the press here Lord Lawson once more appeals to reason in a well-put article, and in the Telegraph Charles Moore continues the same theme. The redouptable Christopher Booker also waded in with his column in The Sunday Telegraph

This article was on the front page of the Daily Mail and continued in a large article inside. The Mail is the second largest circulation daily in the UK. Clearly opinion is shifting in a sceptic direction as it becomes clearer exactly what the Climate Change Act means for prices here.

Not only that but they should be tattooed as "deniers" and forced to endure a horrible death, according to this article in a mainstream Australian newspaper. In fact the writer shows himself up as bone-headed by his simplistic and one-sided arguments.

Here is an article to reassure the low lying Pacific islanders who are worried about being swamped by rising sea levels. Apparently the islands are rising at the same rate (ie very slowly!) as sea level. That will be a great relief to the Czeck Republic who are currently being sued by Micronesia for causing their demise by emitting CO2.

This article by The leader of the oppsition, Tony Abbott, explains why an emission trading scheme would be a disaster for Australia, or anywhere else for that matter.

This article explains how some UK research groups into alternative"greener energy" will be hit by the governments new green taxes. These groups are now looking for an opt out, claiming their work is of great benefit - as though all the rest is not!

Here is a good example of how one scientist has written a piece trying to denigrate climate sceptics only to find that what he has written applies just as much to the alarmists who he tries to defend.

This article highlights a new phenomenum of nations using the international court to sue for the alleged effects of global warming. I would not be surprised at some third world activist judges allowing such claims, though whether nations would accept these judgements we will have to wait and see.
