I'm back. Sun-bronzed. Reinvigorated. Somewhat weightier than previously.

Normal service should be resumed shortly.

Good news, Andrew, and welcome back!

"Sun-bronzed" eh?

All hail the Chef.

Welcome back your Holiness,

You won't believe this but in your absence common sense has broken out amongst the governments of the world. All renewable subsidies have been scrapped, the UK is switching much of its power generation to shale gas, NGOs pursuing an obvious political agenda have lost their charitable status ... oh wait.

'It's. The Bishop!'

You don't know what a hole in my day was created by your absence. Each day I logged on in expectation of some juicy new nugget, only to reread yesterdays heading. Had to be content that at least the Telegraph published my last comment on this blog re Cameron Putin and energy security.

Welcome back Bishop!

Meanwhile a bit of fun over at Climate Audit. Steve Mc informs in an inline comment that:

As to the University title to SKS documents, I recently wrote to the University solicitor and copyright administrator, asking them whether they also claimed copyright over Cook’s Nazi and Spartan images, and for copyright permission. Just so there would be no misunderstanding of which images I was requesting, I included copies of the images in my request letter. I haven’t received an answer yet.

Good to have you back in line, Andrew.

.I'm back. Sun-bronzed. Reinvigorated. Somewhat weightier.

Yeah and an even bigger Carbon Footprint to show for it.

and a couple of sour spots on the lips and and elsewhere ?

That was a worryingly prolonged period of silence. I was beginning to wonder if you'd been got at by the Green Blob.

You were away..? Were we told..??

Along with Anthony Hanwell (above), I was seriously worried that my pooter had developed some sort of gremlin - or that GCHQ had me in their sights - that would not show any postings after July 23rd....

With the greatest possible respect, kindly inform us next time you bugger orf for R&R - my nerves are in a right old state....!

I have this, possibly fanciful, image of you in full regalia, marching along the beach and smiting unbelievers with your crozier, while fending off impertinent enquiries about your robes.. (Is there anything worn under there? No, it's all in perfect working order!).

Welcome back, anyway.

to quote the immortal zappa: does it hurt when you pee??

Ah - so you were in Glasgow for the opening of the Commonwealth Games, then..?

Your Grace,

It's just not the same without you.

In your absence, Bloomberg reported that Germany's electricity system is being bailed out by coal-fired electric generation:

Welcome back, Your Grace. I comment the following piece of circular thinking to you...

As reported in The Cambridge News, a Cambridgeshire farmer, who had vehemently opposed a large proposed local solar and wind farm, has submitted a planning application for three wind turbines on his land.
His reason has been reported as being to 'safeguard the farm' from housing development - and he makes the point that he can farm right up to the turbine bases, unlike a solar farm which takes out the farmland it occupies.
Now - unless I'm missing something obvious here, there couldn't have been any housing development on his land unless HE submitted a planning application for it.
So - seems to me he could continue to 'safeguard the farm' by continuing to farm it - and he therefore didn't need to submit a planning application for the three wind turbines - unless of course he wanted to MAKE SOME MONEY.....
