This report in the Telegraph gives an overview of the negotiating positions of the major nations and the EU. It looks unlikely that any progress will be made.

This clip will be available for 7 days. In it you can hear Jonathan Porritt and Sir David King debate the merits of voluntary emission cuts versus binding commitments like the Kyoto Protocol. It was an interesting exchange, if only for the fact that there is such disagreement among the alarmists as to what is effective, but of course neither of them would actually admit the obvious point, which is that no individual nations can make a difference to world-wide emissions without a world-wide commitment from every major industrial nation, and that looks highly unlikely.

This piece by James Delingpole looks at the latest release of emails by climate scientists by a well-meaning whistleblower. They reveal the truth of what these scientists are thinking. I will be surprised if they get a mention on the main TV news.

This article in the Mail-on-Sunday looks at the details of how Roger Harrabin accepted payments from a climate alarmist pressure group which was used to fund seminars at the BBC. The article also mentions other clear conflicts of interest at the BBC in respect of programmes on climate change where substantial funding comes from similar groups. Clearly money buys influence and many, if not all big businesses are in on it.

The insurance industry has a vested interest in exaggerating the extent of climate change in order to justify hiking up premiums, so it is no surprise to read this article which confirms it. They are not alone,of course, as there are many others hoping to make a good profit out of the scsre.

This Guardian piece repeats the "we're all doomed" mantra, just in time for the latest world climate conference. We used to have a man with a sandwich board with the slogan "The end of the world is nigh", now its climate alarmists in newspapers. The effect is the same - the world goes on and the message is ignored. Religious nutters or climate change nutters, we regard them as all the same.

This article shows an alarmist prediction made in 2007 relating to armageddon in 2012. It illustrates just how foolish some alarmists can be.

"Give us the money, or we'll release our climate-warming gases", is what the Chinese seem to be saying, according to this report. What should our response be? I say we should tell them we won't pay them anything and if they go ahead we will stop all aid to China - but I am not too confident our leaders will take that line. We will wait and see.

This BBC report into the intractible problems to be overcome at the upcoming international climate conference in South Africa. With a bit of luck they will reach no agreement at all and we can get on with our lives, emitting whatever CO2 we like. However all the taxes will remain in place for ever.

This piece refers to a report from KPMG which says that we can still reach the 2020 emissions target without building very expensive wind turbines and save 30 or 40 billion pounds. It seems so obvious and so simple and yet the government don't seem to get it. Gas and nuclear will do the job.

This article looks at a number of long temperature records, including that of Central England, which is over 400 years, and compares them with the records of the IPCC and the Climate Research Unit. It is a lengthy but readable piece and it reveals a temperature that has remained stubbornly stable overall with a small steady rise, though with considerable variation within. This article should be compulsory reading for all those interested in the subject.

This article makes fascinating reading. A scientist has looked at temperature data taken at regular times throughout the day and his analysis shows that the warming is mainly at certain times of the day,leading to some very interesting conclusions for global warming. It is amazing that no one has looked at this before.

This article discusses the problem of the lack of warming over thE past decade and the attempts of scientists, trying to keep the CO2 hypothesis on track. There is no doubt that if the planet continues to fail to warm serious questions will need answers, or else the CO2 hypothesis will come to a dead end

This may seem a crazy headline, but it is not far from the truth according to this book review by Matt Ridley in the Australian. He is reviewing a book by Donna Laframboise who has throughly researched the working of the IPCC. I think she deserves all success for such mind-numbing work.

New data from a Japanese satellite seems to turn existing ideas upside down according to this article which appears to show that the third world emits more CO2 than the developed nations.
The link does not appear to work now, so just to show I did really see it here is another link with more information on it.
