My fault I tweeted him : but by choosing the tricky way to keep 141%, he reveals that he is in the "Rhetorical tricks & lies for the cause" camp with Harrabin and GranthamHedgefund lackeys and DirtyMPs/Lords.
I could try for a screengrab ..no old version wasn't in my cache
- he didn't tweet me back.

Matt McGrath has fixed the 141% error by rewording, so he gets to keep the scary number.

old version: Since the start of the industrial era in 1750, global average levels of CO2 in the atmosphere have increased by 141%.

new version: Since 1750, global average levels of CO2 in the atmosphere have increased to 141% of the pre-industrial concentration of 278 parts per million (ppm).

TV : "Colder less windy winters ..some scientists say rethink on wind needed"
Daily Politics yesterday direct link (34.35min to 45 min)
..based on Lockwood on Paul Hudson plus Lincolnshire anti-wind people
It's a contentious issue so over to an expert : John weatherman Kettley : "well everyone knows that all the other fuels are going to run out so we do need these wind turbines whatever"
...sorry John "everyone knows" doesn't cut it ..peak oil etc. does look like a fanatasy
- Then 5 min talk Conservative Chris Heaton Harris vs Green Party leader Natalie Bennet.
how come these days tables have turned & it's the Greens who use the evil & devious tactics ?
..she never answered the question rather she just read off the PR sheet
.. complete lies like Germany/Chine is powering ahead ..while UK is left behind
same old crap ..nothing new to debunk
crap like "We are not spending a single penny of government money on insulation"
do you get that ? ... cos insulation subsidy comes out of electrcity bills not gov money
..trouble was the 3rd panelist Marion King president of Mastercard in the UK, was just completely taken in."I don't know the facts but I didn't vote against the one in my village"
- preseneter was not Andrew Neil, but no walk over

- "Wind Energy is just environmental bling" Chris Heaton Harris

- well spotted mate
..that's a product of the rule that only that only the "useful idiots" with no technical ability to challenge are SELECTED as the interface to the public on Global Warming
.. Government Chief scientist's and , RS presidents from completely different fields.. English Lit graduates for BBC, or a geneticist

Matt McGrath article on emissions contains basic arithmetic error!


Since the start of the industrial era in 1750, global average levels of CO2 in the atmosphere have increased by 141%.

By my calculations, 400/280 is approx. 41% increase, not 141%.

It's much worse than we thought. Power shortages more likely this winter.
