A BLIZZARD OF LIES IN NY TIMES
This article comes from a great blog which is new to me. It looks at the Orwellian double-speak coming from many climate alarmists who are desparate to come up with a convincing answer as to why we are experiencing such cold weather, contrary to earlier predictions of the alarmists. Will the Orwellian efforts be successful?

WHY IS UK PETROL SO EXPENSIVE?
This article gives a breakdown of the cost. The answer of course is tax which is much more than half the cost of a gallon, but that won't stop the government from taking even more - unless we really start protesting.

MET OFFICE HIJACKED BY GREEN ACTIVISTS
Christopher Booker makes a good case to explain the poor performance of the UK Met Office in forecasting the recent cold weather. How much more will it take before they are replaced?

This Hansard extract shows Lord Lawson showing the government's energy policy for waht it is - a complete shambles. Well worth a read.

UK WILL NOT COPE AFTER 2030 - NEW REPORT
It's not as if we are coping today, but this report warns of new problems due, of course, to predictions of dramatic climate change. What the public may ask is - if they were unable to forecast the recent severe weather, then why should we believe they can forecasts anything else?

RED FACES AT THE MET OFFICE
This article in the Financial Post of Canada again highlights the folly of attempting long range weather forecasting. The problem fo alarmists is that the whole theory relies on computer forecasts. If they cannot do even relatively short "long term" forecasts, then why would anyone believe their longer term ones?

WHETHER ITS WEATHER OR CLIMATE
I find it rather hilarious to hear the alarmists telling us that we must not point to any individual weather to dismiss their warnings of damaging climate change. The hilarity comes because it is the alarmists themselves who have confidently predicted that we would see much less of certain types of weather and much more of others. This is brought out very well in this piece. It is very satisfying to see smug people squirming.

DIFFERENCES IN THE WORLD'S TEMPERATURE MEASURING SYSTEMS
Unless you bother to look closely you may not be aware that there are several different systems used to compile the average temperature change for the globe and they do not all agree. We are talking about very small changes here, but this article from WUWT takes a detailed look at why the one that gives the biggest changes (NASA GISS) seems to be wrong.

THE FOLLY OF CANCUN
Here's Chris Monckton giving his verdict of the recent Cancum climate talks in the Telegraph. Without him and Chris Booker just imagine how much worse our knowledge of the truth would be?

NEW PAPER PREDICTS NO TEMP RISE FOR 20 YEARS
This summary gives the details, and has a link to the whole paper which has been published in a scientific journal. It's an interesting analysis which gives room for much thought.

OUR DARKEST HOURS TO COME.
Christopher Booker warns us of what the government's energy policy will lead to - a cold dark Britain, unless they are forced into a u-turn; but by then it will be too late.

UK CLIMATE PROTESTORS FOUND GUILTY
A group of climate protestors who planned to occupy and shut down a coal fired power station in Nottingham have been found guilty. This article gives the details. Despite James Hansen being flown over from the USA, this time the jury did not accept a defence of "necessity". It restores your faith in the jury system.

UK ELECTRICITY PRICES TO RISE BY £500 A YEAR
Announcements today by Chris Huhne, the UK climate change minister, will add £500 a year to the average electricity bill according to this Telegraph article. This is definitely on the cards, but because it will take a few years to happen the government are hoping that people will not notice.

GW NOT GUILTY OF FROG DEATHS
This story is a good one for frogs, as they are adapting to survive. It is also good for global warming, as it has now been shown that it is not to blame, despite it being given the blame anyway.

UK ENERGY PRICES TO DOUBLE FROM 2012 TO 2016
UK energy users face a grim future according to this article. Apart from the doubling of electricity and gas bills, businesses also face an extra cost of complying with the government's Carbon Reduction Commitment. Faced with all these extra costs it seems likely that many will be unable to survive.

COAL HAS A BRIGHT FUTURE EXCEPT IN THE UK
Do you ever get the feeling that the UK is out of step with everyone else? This article highlights one glaring difference in the use of coal. While we continue (almost single-handed, it appears!) to try to "save the planet", the rest of it continues to burn coal quite oblivious to the impending meltdown.

STUDENTS TO PAY FOR CANCUN DEAL
That is according to Christopher Booker. What he means is that the sum saved by increasing tuition fees (£2.9 billion) is equal to the amount the UK has agreed to give to a fund to provide wind turbines etc for the third world. There is a certain irony in so far as it is students (or rather a small minority) who join the demonstrations demanding more for the third world. Be careful what you wish for!

SUMMARY OF CANCUM CLIMATE DEAL
Here is a summary of the main points. It all seems very vague, and like EU directives, the UK will not only obey but go beyond the letter, no doubt, like lemmings at the edge of a cliff.

IS A WORLD GOVERNMENT BEING CREATED?
This article gives a condensed version of what is being created at Cancun. If true, it is an alarming development akin to what has happened with the EU as it has taken over more and more powers from the member states under the excuse of creating a single market.

WHY WE MUST HAVE A FREE MEDIA
This piece on James Delingpole's excellent blog has a guest post by Martin Durkin, the producer of the film "The Great Global Warming Swindle" a brilliant critique of the state of climate science. Durkin explains how the warmists, who try to paint themselves as the only source of pure science, are actually preventing any science contrary to their own beliefs from seeing the light of day.

RENEWABLE SUBSIDIES UNDER THE COSH

UK SHALE GAS FIND NEAR BLACKPOOL
Shale gas, the new type of natural gas, is transforming the fortunes of the gas industry in the USA. Now it has come to the UK - see this article for details. With these new discoveries it looks as though there will be plenty of gas for the foreseeable future. Not the scenario that alarmists want us to believe.

UK CLIMATE COMMITTEE COMES UP WITH MORE AMBITIOUS TARGET
60% cuts in emissions by 2030 is the new target set by the UK Climate Change Committee, according to This article in the Guardian. It sounds completely bonkers, and EUReferendum blog agrees. Why would the UK want to double an already unachievable target when the rest of the world are not even attempting the lower target?

DAILY MAIL PUBLISHES SCEPTIC VIEW OF GW
Slowly we find that the mainstream press are coming round to the idea that the so-called consensus on global warming is falling apart. In today's Mail on Sunday we find this article with a very strong sceptic stance. Everywhere, except, it seems at the heart of government, I find doubt surfacing.

UN CALL FOR WORLD WIDE BAN ON TRADITIONAL LIGHT BULBS
Here is the article. I do wonder whether there is some hidden agenda here, since the amount of CO2 saved is, in reality a tiny proportion of total emissions. Readers of this blog may recall an ingenious way round the new regulations that was highlighted in an earlier post here.

TWO JAGS DISCUSSES CANCUN WITH ANDREW NEIL
Here is a link to the video clip of an interview of Two Jags Prescott (former UK Labour Deputy PM) who is setting off to Cancun to tell the world's politicians to cut their CO2 emissions. He just cannot see any hint of hypocrisy in his stance. It is both amusing and yet appalling at the same time, particularly as he models himself on Al Gore!

GOOD NEWS FOR SMALL ISLANDS
This piece explains how the climate scare is being ramped up ahead of the latest climate conference. Sea level rise is another scare to try and convince the masses of the need to cut our CO2 emissions.

ENERGY PRICE RISES - THE TRUTH WILL OUT
This article is very revealing. It appears that just as Ofgem is about to look into the reason for the hike in energy prices, the energy companies are coming out with green taxes as the main cause.
