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. "

Have a look at Guardian website. Huhne scraps green bank (or words to that effect).

Telling a Nottingham jury that coal should be left in the ground. Not a good move.

This was the best bit from the Lords:

Lord Marland (who else); answering the Bishop of Chester....
"I thank the Church of England for the example that it has set through step change in driving the church towards nil carbon emissions in the near future. Again, that is leading by example."

NIL carbon (dioxide) emissions- stop breathing immediately, your grace (of Chester)

The court didn't believe him, perhaps?
