Transitions Online - Prague,Czech Republic
by Nikola Horejs
On a U.S. trip, the Czech president steps into the role of crusader and fund-raiser for the climate change deniers. Global warming skeptics have been longing for a figurehead to lead their charge since before Al Gore came out with his inconvenient documentary. Last month, several conservative groups in the United States hosted one of the few promising candidates – Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic.

Adapt to changing climate
by Paddy Rooney
WE HAVE become used to repeated exhortations to cut down on carbon emissions because increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will cause temperatures to rise dangerously, with dire consequences for most forms of vegetable and animal life. So it is a refreshing surprise to read scientific studies which suggest that things may not be so calamitous after all.

Poll: Global Warming On Back Burner
by DAVID FUNKHOUSER
The poll, taken Oct. 7-14, surveyed 2,189 adults and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Asked how important a candidate's views on global warming are in making up their minds, nearly two out of three undecided voters — 62 percent — said it is "one of several important issues." Just 1 percent said it was the "single most important issue," and 37 percent said it is "not an important issue."

Going green does more harm than good
by Michael Baldwin
With a growing sense of everyone jumping on the "go-green" bandwagon, there is a silent horror in how the rich nations are ignoring the plight of the worlds poorest. We as Americans seem to place a large emphasis on controlling our effect on the environment in any fashion and damn any and all consequences. With over half of humanity living on less than $2.50 a day, 26,500-30,000 children dying each day due to poverty, and about 1.1 billion people without access to clean water, exactly how does the current movement to go "green" in the United States address these more vital issues?

Solar Variations: Too Tiny to Matter
by Bill Chameides
The skeptics are squawking again, their blogs achatter with talk about solar variability and sunspots. According to them, anybody who is anybody in climate science now knows the sun is to blame for global warming. Even the New York Times recently wrote about the low level of solar activity this year and the possibility of a coming ice age. Can any of this be true?See below for the Lord Monckton Email to Bill Chameides

Obama Campaign: Carbon Kills
by Larrey Anderson
Just this weekend American Thinker published Lord Monckton's massive plea
to John McCain that urged the Republican candidate to rethink his position on global warming. Today, the Wall Street Journal reports
that Barack Obama intends to immediately impose draconian measures (using the EPA) on the American economy in a Don Quixotian effort to fix the fiction of man made global warming.

Introducing the Polish Version of Blue, not Green Planet
by Václav Klaus
After spending several years studying this issue I came to the conclusion that we were deceived. The Great Global Warming Debate is not about temperature or CO2 levels. It is not a scientific dispute inside climatology. It is a dispute about us, about people, about human society, about our values, our habits, our life. It is a clash between those who want to change us (not climate) and those who believe in freedom, markets, human ingenuity, and technical progress.

More Skeptics Speaking Out Almost Daily
Skeptics are speaking out more and more as the earth cools. They are questioning the role of carbon dioxide, pointing out the many failures of the climate models, discussing the underestimated role of the sun and oceans in climate change.

Thirty years of warmer temperatures go poof
by Lorne Gunter
In early September, I began noticing a string of news stories about scientists rejecting the orthodoxy on global warming. Actually, it was more like a string of guest columns and long letters to the editor since it is hard for skeptical scientists to get published in the cabal of climate journals now controlled by the Great Sanhedrin of the environmental movement.

Climate debate hots up
by DR JOHN ETHERINGTON
Ian Baxter cites the Nasa temperature record in accusing me of propagating a myth of no recent global temperature increase. (Letters October 15). The Meteorological Office's Hadley Centre data show that from 2002 to 2007, the annual anomaly versus the long-term average has been about plus 0.4C with no statistical trend.
