Ah, I wondered when the Met Office would depart from the "message" far enough to get binned.

The BBC has sacked the Met Office. The subsidy for roof top solar is to be cut drastically.

Just back from a fortnight in the US, anything happened while I was away?

HaroldW: That is a an excellent article by Donna; well worth a careful read. It is good to have her back and in fine form.

Anyone seen this court judgment against the Dutch Government?

AMSTERDAM, Sept 1 (Reuters) - The Dutch government will appeal against a district court ruling ordering it to cut emissions of greenhouse gases faster than currently planned, in a politically sensitive case that is being closely watched by policy-makers abroad.

Urgenda, an environmental group that filed the lawsuit on behalf of 900 Dutch co-plaintiffs, said it looked forward to the appeal process and urged the government to do more to slow climate change.

The ruling, a rare intervention by the judiciary in the global warming debate, is being closely watched by policy makers and environmentalists as a legal precedent.

Mansveld's letter said it was the first time that a judge found that the government should achieve a minimum emissions reduction.

Shocking in my opinion.

My review of Nicholas Stern's new book, 'Why Are We Waiting?' is now published in the Journal of Economic Psychology. I have a blog-post about it here: https://mygardenpond.wordpress.com/2015/09/01/review-of-nicholas-stern-why-are-we-waiting/

Problems with CAPTCHA: Failed on Chrome but OK when I switched to IE.

Michael Hart: I guess ol' Robinson Iceflo could judiciously spend his time working out the difference between calfing and carving:

Go to his website and you can read: "In 2016, for the first time ever, Alex will live on the tip of an iceberg, carved [sic] from a glacier in the North West of Greenland"
Unless, of course, he's carved a Man Fridgeday to keep him company...

I am also still having problems with ReCaptcha on Discussions and Unthreaded when using Chrome. Firefox seems OK at the moment, but the problem did exist there too.
