A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

If words hadn't failed me already, I would also mention the Australian government's latest advice to save the planet:

"The Australian government actually suggested this on its Living Greener website, saying that snuggling up with your pet instead of turning up the thermostat is a good way to save energy. Other earth-friendly ideas included playing board games instead of watching TV, and being a regular at the library where you can “share the heating and computers with your community.”

[presuming the library hasn't been closed....]

Messenger: You mean your local sewage works water treatment plant doesn't recycle the paper?

According to the CW website the solution to climate change involves using "sustainable" toilet paper.
Words fail me.

Phillip - re Al and the MO.

Al is indeed there on the Climate Week list - an informative adornment if ever there was one.

I have wondered if whoever they are who steer the Met Office, and who appointed Robert Napier as Chairman of their board of governors, would dearly have liked Al Gore to have been his successor last year.

Al possibly knows more about climate science than Robert did, and he has an even more impressive track record in fund-raising and publicity-generation.

He would have been a good fit for the modern Met Office.

John: Not just the UK's leading chumps. We have Al Gore in bed with the Met Office tackling climate change.

'Climate Week' remains decidedly unimpressive, thank goodness.

The list of supporters of it could be the basis for a definitive list of the UK's leading Climate Chumps and their organisations.

No need to answer my previous post. It's all given at Check it out and who the supporters are. It's supported by the great and the good and the troughers and those who haven't a clue.

According to the BBC, next week is "Climate Week, the UK’s biggest climate change campaign". Anybody know anything about this?

Thanks Messenger. Leo Hickman’s po-faced cri de coeur about climate sceptics invading the Bloggies Awards is a joy to read.

Skeptical Science, who have never lobbied to be nominated and are the only non-climate sceptic blog on the Science shortlist, has now asked to be withdrawn from the shortlist due to its concerns about the legitimacy of the voting process.
That would be the Skeptical Science blog that pushed Lewandowsky’s fake on-line poll about climate sceptics believing the moonlandings were faked? (Actually, they didn’t. John Cook said he’d advertised the poll on his blog, but he hadn’t. He was lying). But he did muse about placing fake sceptical comments on blog threads as an experiment. So naturally the last thing he’d want to do is take part in a genuine popularity contest with genuine sceptics.

Leo Hickman in The Grauniad has a long article analysing how the success of the sceptic blogs in the Bloggies awards 2013 could possibly have come about.

It must be that they are gaming the system seems to be his conclusion. I wonder if he would have produced a similar article had it been warmist blogs that took the most awards?
