Frosty - Dec 15th, 9.58am -

More from Roger Helmer here. For once, a politician who seems to understand. Why do most of the others still have their heads in the sand?

Blow the bears, what about our electricity bills. The lunatics are going to jack them up another 25% so that 'investors' can make a profit on useless energy. -Though they are going to give government money to Nuclear (but it's absolutely not a subsidy, it's low carbon encouragement).

If a very large fraction of the population isn't following the students onto the streets by mid year I'll be very very surprised.

I bought a copy of HSI via Amazon here in the USA a few months ago.
Today I got an email from Amazon asking me to sell it back!
Don't know what it all means, but I'm keeping my copy.

"Conservative MEP spends £9,000 on climate sceptic poster campaign

Roger Helmer uses taxpayers' money to promote his climate sceptic beliefs on giant billboards"

I don't know how I missed this!

There is a remarkable section on a NASA website which talks a lot of sense about climate, relegating CO2 to a relatively minor role. A writer on American Thinker has drawn attention to it here: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/12/climate_change_its_the_sun_stu.html

"The Sun is the primary forcing of Earth's climate system. Sunlight warms our world. Sunlight drives atmospheric and oceanic circulation patterns. Sunlight powers the process of photosynthesis that plants need to grow. Sunlight causes convection which carries warmth and water vapor up into the sky where clouds form and bring rain. In short, the Sun drives almost every aspect of our world's climate system and makes possible life as we know it.

"... According to scientists' models of Earth's orbit and orientation toward the Sun indicate that our world should be just beginning to enter a new period of cooling -- perhaps the next ice age...

"Other important forcings of Earth's climate system include such "variables" as clouds, airborne particulate matter, and surface brightness. Each of these varying features of Earth's environment has the capacity to exceed the warming influence of greenhouse gases and cause our world to cool. "
