"Climate Parliament"?

Just how much woodwork do we have? How many other things are yet to crawl out?

How come they are all charities? Suppose the funding comes from the cross fertilisation system of charity feeding charity. I wonder if involvement by the elected and their official requires declaration?

Stop taking the pain killers. Your head will feel a lot better if you stop banging it against a brick wall.

I only had one experience and at the time I really was trying to help to correct an inadvertant misconception about a third parties posting.

That was enough for me, life is too short to help those that do not want to be helped.

Stand tall and walk away.

The IPCC just won't give up:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/nov/18/extreme-weather-climate-change-ipcc

and get this:

"Simon Brown, climate extremes research manager at the Hadley Centre ..."

Climate extremes research manager???

I suppose since the climate refuses to warm, you need a new unprovable scare stroy.

It is interesting that it would be an offence to trade under such a name as the Climate Parliament e.g.

The following restrictions apply under sections 53-55 and 1197-8 of the Companies Act 2006:

•names that suggest a connection with Her Majesty's Government, a devolved government or administration or a specified public authority;

After having spent a long time trying to engage him in debate,
BBD has three times accused me of dishonesty
for claiming
1) that the UN had recently changed its definition of climate change
2) that scientists had expressed substantial uncertainty in some of the claims for climate change
3) that a substantial body of mainstream climatologists express sceptical ideas about some of the science

Each claim has been evidenced and yet rather than seek reconciliation he chooses to re-iterate the charges of dishonesty.

Regrettably I cannot escape the conclusion that he is simply a troll. Please DNFTT.

Has anyone heard of the global Climate Parliament before? I just received this from LibDem MEP Sir Graham Watson (Bachelor of Arts in modern languages):

We also voted for the EU to seek at the forthcoming UN climate talks in Durban to continue the Kyoto Protocol after 2012 and to press for a wide ranging climate agreement by 2015, covering emissions from air and sea transport and including a commitment to cut total CO2 emissions by more than 20% by 2020. I will go to Durban as chairman of the global Climate Parliament and will report next month on how we get on.

Ye Gods, give me strength!
How did we ever get into this mess?

Sunday Mail - has the Duke of Edinburg as well PAGE 2

Mail Headline: Philip dismisses wind farms as 'a useless disgrace' and says people who back them believe in a 'fairy tale'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2063836/Philip-dismisses-wind-farms-useless-disgrace.html?ITO=1490

"He said they were absolutely useless, completely reliant on subsidies and an absolute disgrace. He said, “You don’t believe in fairy tales, do you?”

Flawed: There are 3,421 wind turbines in Britain but they have been criticised for driving up energy bills

‘He said that they would never work as they need back-up capacity. I was surprised by his very frank views.’

All very sensible stuff, ie windurbines useless, not least because they need to have back up powerstations..

All well known to everyone (includingthe Mail) , what is interesting is tha they are runing more and more stories prominently like this..

An excellent article on scepticism at the GWPF:

Pharos
The noise from wind turbines is also covered at the Telegraph.
