In the Montana Supreme Court attorneys for global warming activists wanted the atmosphere designated as a public trust deserving special protection. They tried to bypass the lower courts by taking this directly to the Supreme Court arguing that because of the existence of a scientific consensus the matter should be treated purely on the legal issues rather than as a matter of fact (which needs to be addressed first in the lower courts).

But in a precedent-making decision, the Montana Supreme Court dismissed the lawsuit brought by Our Children’s Trust when a Climate Depot report listing more than 1000 dissenting scientists was accepted by the Supreme Court as evidence that there IS no consensus.

Legal victory as Montana Supreme Court rejects warming lawsuit

I detect a pattern is emerging, UK Govt supported by all EU except Denmark what the IWC to be opened up to pressure from NGO's and Environmentalists. Seems everything is OK if it gets Greenpeace approval, who needs a world Govt when you can have it by proxy.

The British resolution also seeks to make the IWC's own scientific reports more rigorous, make its record-keeping more timely and accurate, and make its meetings more open to representatives from environmental pressure groups and other non-governmental organisations.

EU dictatorship will get you everytime, we still have a long way to go, more and more I hope the EU is seriously wounded by its slavish AGW belief.

Following a week of increasingly shrill calls from the European Parliament and NGOs for him to recant his views or face disciplinary sanctions, Mr Lewandowski made a humiliating climb down.

"In order to clarify misunderstandings," he said in a statement. "I acknowledge the fact that the overwhelming majority of scientific studies confirm the phenomenon of global warming."

Dr John Constable, Director of the Renewable Energy Foundation, a UK charity publishing data on the energy sector, said wind farms are failing to generate enough energy, despite £5bn of subsidies since 2002.
"REF's calculations suggest that the annual subsidies will rise to around £6bn a year in 2020, with the programme costing a total of £100bn by 2030. These are heavy burdens, and threaten to exhaust consumer patience,” he added.

Despite the fact that Germany gets 23 per cent of its power from its 17 nuclear reactors, nine of which are currently running at full capacity, she claimed that wind and solar energy could meet the shortfall.

The announcement is a shot in the arm for the renewables industry as it will provide certainty and funding.

"This is more than consensus for a nuclear exit, this is consensus for a switch to renewable energy," she said.

She is Merkel if you didn't guess

"SeaEnergy plans to develop a windfarm services business. This will focus initially on developing boats that could be used to access windfarms in all weathers."

My initial reaction was to wonder why on earth you might want a boat to access a windfarm.....the word "offshore" was not apparent.

SNP announces ludicrous Scotland Energy plan and Greens say its not ludicrous enough DOH !!!!!!!

However, the Green Party criticised the plan, with leader Patrick Harvie saying: "If you want to tackle climate change, building renewables achieves nothing unless ministers actually take the opportunity to shut down coal, oil and gas plants.

"Extraordinarily, the SNP's plans would instead see them back new carbon-intensive power stations while crossing their fingers that carbon capture will one day work.
