It's half term here and I'm off for a week. Blogging will therefore be light, although Josh and Messenger might post topical items in my absence.

I trust you are off to somewhere warm and sunny. Have a good break.

We always took a canal holiday in the Autumn because the English half-term was the following week so I hope you got a good deal wherever you're off to!
I reckon we'll still be here when you get back.

The Bish off for a week, that must explain the long line of environmentalists trying to get onto the BBC to peddle their wares unopposed, starting today on R4 with Prof McGlade, chief scientist at UNEP, i.e. a once respected academic, now gone full planet saver (and collector of tax free salary?) and renewable energy finger pointer.

Apparently she is very worried about the loss of the renewable subsidies in the UK, and the effect this will have on the tiny UK percentage of global emissions, and don't forget all those "green" scaffolder and electrician jobs at risk.

Speaking of the BBC, anybody want to see the Germans taking a pop at Sacred Green? You can do so here:

This is on a state broadcaster too. The BBC wouldn't put up with such blasphemy.

The web link says it all.

A new, additional blog venue should be available very shortly, which may help to alleviate a week of Bishlessness.

I believe 'Bishlessness' (AKA gracelessness) was first suggested by Michael Mann shortly after he read The Hockey Stick Illusion.

TinyCO2, not to worry, the Guardian claimed Vaz and Mandelson were not implicated in the Hinduja passport row, and Tata steel has done very nicely over concentrating their CO2 production in India rather than the UK with its ludicrous and punitive costs.

Another Climate Change Act success story for Labour and the UK's workforce to blame on someone else.

Perhaps Amber Rudd would like to explain some of the historical background before the DECC causes more redundancies, from the UK's growth market in exporting CO2 production, so that greedy industrialists can reap financial benefits from Carbon Credits. This would allow the Tories to address their complicity, and takes steps to redress the inequalities caused to the UK's workforce and wider economy.

A healthy political row now, would be very constructive in the run up to Paris, allowing the UK's top negotiators to appreciate there is no consensus in the House of Commons, let alone that mysterious place outside Westminster called the United Kingdom.

Colin Summerhayes

Anyone willing to splash out near £60 for a new book by Geological Society former President, Colin Summerhayes - a confirmed AGW-scare believer and most likely the controlling author of GeolSoc's position statements on climate change

Title: Earth's Climate Evolution, just out.
Looking at the Amazon 'Look Inside' sample, it contains a lot of good detail on the history of the Earth's climate and drivers of chance. However, two figures are listed in the sample index (figures not visible) with the following captions that give cause for concern:

Figure 15.4 The figure the IPCC got wrong - Lamb's graph of English temperature taken as global.


Figure 15.10 Mann's Hockey Stick graph, 2001. Millenial northern hemisphere reconstruction for 1000 to 1999 AD.
[notably no 'got it wrong' comment with this one].
