Amongst Messenger's 5 alarmist articles I noticed that the lead photograph of the Durban Climate Change Conference piece that there were (a paltry handful) of protesters, a couple of which were sporting banners that proclaimed: "Never trust a COP".
Indeed, 17 to be precise.
But the big placard in the foreground read: "Wind power for the people". At which point I concluded that these poor souls have been badly led astray at best, coerced at worst, and undeniably misinformed. It is bordering on shameful that some of the poorest in society are used mercilessly as political pawns in this way. Poster-poor for the ruthless machinations of Big Climate.

A good job it was billed as a comedy programme - Brian Cox was a joke.

from Greenie Watch:

German Environment Minister Röttgen asks for CO2 limit for every individual on earth according to an article in the online version of the German magazine "Der Spiegel". It quotes Röttgen's remarks he made in an interview with it. He says:

"It is sensible and necessary to introduce a global competitive order (meaning: to regulate competition) to protect the climate. The final goal is, a per head budget of green house gases for every person on earth (meaning: everybody gets the same budget).

Al Gore will be deep in the pooh based on this. Maybe he will be grounded!

Did you really expect anything different? Aged brain grind exceeding slow at the Beeb. This show was probably written months ago.

Oh FFS!

That Radio 4 monkey cage show to be broadcast on radio 4 today 4.30pm. this is beyond parody:


A Balanced programme on Balance

The Infinite Monkeys, Brian Cox and Robin Ince, are joined on stage by Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Royal Society, and comedian and theology graduate Katy Brand to look at how science is portrayed in the press and whether opinion is ever as valid as evidence. Occasionally accused of lack of balance by lovers of astrology and the supernatural, the unashamedly rational and evidence loving duo tackle the issue of balance head on. Does the media skew scientific debate by giving too much weight to public opinion over the scientific evidence? Do important science messages get lost because scientists don't engage enough with seemingly irrational concerns and beliefs? A witty irreverent look at some of the issues surrounding the public's perception of science and how it's reported in the media.

@Brownedoff

I pipped you to the post with that one at 8.06am on Climategate 2.0 in context- but the more the merrier!

Brian Cox tweeted he was off to record a thing on Radio 4 about balance in Science reporting he said "expecting complaints", he said it was to be on today at 4.30 @themonkeycage.

Wonder if he will cover the climategate 2 release or BBC bias?

Via EUReferendum

The director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, Professor Corinne Le Quere, stressed a deal must be reached by 2015.

To keep the rise in temperatures below the target of two degrees (C), carbon dioxide emissions need to peak between 2015 to 2020 and then decrease rapidly afterwards.

At the moment they are growing by around three per cent a year.

She said: “2015 is really the latest you can start the agreement, by 2020 it is finished.”

Professor Le Quere believes little is likely to happen in Durban, but that should not stop Britain from taking the lead.

Professor Le Quere is a Lead Author for AR5 WG1 Chapter 6.

Jolly good.
