American courts back EPA emissions limitations.

Perhaps I am a bit cynical but how far can legislation go. If I were a CEO of a power company and was under pressure from EPA or DECC to stop using coal as a power source I would suggest shutting down the power stations for two days a week to reduce emissions. If that doesn't bring reality in the conversation then I don't know what will!

Judith Curry's response to written questions that followed her recent testimony to the U. S. Congress' House Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment are now up on her blog, Climate Etc.

She posted the questions and asked readers for their recommendations. Her response reflects many of the comments that were provided. It is an interesting read whether or not you agree with what she had to say.

Turning Tide:

I don't see the Hoons name there, either for or agin. It's not a definitive list until the Hansard is published at 0600 tomorrow, and it doesn't list the abstentions, but it would indicate that CH was not there.

Huhne: Did he or didn't he?

Mr Turning Tide was watching Sky News on the telly this evening, which reported that Huhne flew from Cancun to take part in the tuition fees vote, then took a flight back to Cancun, spending a total of 9 hours in the UK.

However, I can't find any mention of this on the Sky News website, and other sources (e.g. The Graun, the beeb) list Huhne among the abstainers, on the grounds that he was in Cancun.

Does anyone have an official source that lists which way MPs voted? - that ought to settle it.

According to

the Central England Temperature (CET) for the week December 1st-7th this year is the coldest opening week of December since 1879, and the second coldest opening week of December since CET records began in 1659.

MET office outlook for Christmas:

UK Outlook for Thursday 23 Dec 2010 to Thursday 6 Jan 2011:

For the remainder of December and into the start of the New Year, temperatures look set to remain very cold, well below average for much of the UK, with often widespread frost and the risk of ice. Precipitation amounts are expected to be generally around average for many, with further snowfall a distinct possibility in places. However, western parts of the UK may see more in the way of drier weather. Amounts of sunshine should be around or slightly above average for many.
