They're Launching America's First Carbon Cap-And-Trade Program Today?
by Marc Sheppard
Evidence continues to mount that natural variations in climate dynamics -- particularly solar activity and sea surface temperatures -- are primarily if not wholly responsible for global temperature anomalies. In fact, the absence of warming since 1998 and the current atypically sustained period of dormant solar activity have many researchers predicting another minor ice age may be looming - or already upon us.

At URI, Nobel Prize-winning scientist answers critics of climate change
by Peter B. Lord, Journal Environment Writer
SOUTH KINGSTOWN — Michael E. Mann, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, had just spent an hour explaining why he thinks there is virtual scientific consensus that people are causing the earth to warm and sea levels to rise, when a self-described “left-leaning, pro-environment person,” a meteorologist, rose to angrily dispute him.

Solar wind blows at 50-year low
"Reduced solar activity also leads to the cooling of Earth's upper atmosphere and if Earth's upper atmosphere is cooler then there is less drag up there on satellites and this means we are left with much more debris up there - which is also something astronauts have to look out for."
Some researchers have attempted to link the intensity of cosmic rays at Earth to cloudiness and climate change. Current conditions may be a good opportunity to test these ideas further.

Bailout plan a mystery

DOJ Should Investigate Failed Wall Street Firms
In particular, the Justice Department should investigate whether Lehman Brothers involvement in the carbon credit scheme of Al Gore et. al. played a role in its fall. Veteran Meteorologist John Coleman has called global warming the greatest fraud in history. Carbon credits are one of the ways the perpetrators of that fraud plan to make money of the fictional crisis.

Here is an answer I gave to an email from a thermista in the Canadian Civil Service.
by Lord Monckton
Dear Sir Humphrey - The "Abundance of scientific statements" that you mention is no sound or logical basis for deciding or believing anything. The question is whether the scientific statements have any rational justification, and whether those making them are in effect making statements that are political rather than scientific, rent-seeking rather than objective. After all, this is the age of reason (or it was).
