Energy Secretary Chris Huhne says that our fuel bills wouldn't rise so much if we could wean ourselves off ever-rising fossil fuels.
The big power companies say they've had to hike our gas and electricity bills because of rising global energy prices. I've been looking at energy prices and I'm not sure the picture is quite as they say.
Broadly, wholesale gas and electricity prices have moved in tandem. The wholesale price (what the energy companies pay) of both shot up in 2008 to a new peak.
Retail prices (what we pay in our fuel bills) quickly followed, also to a new peak.
But wholesale prices fell back from the end of 2008 and continued to fall throughout 2009 roughly to previous levels before the 2008 spike.
Retail prices dipped a little too but still remained well above the level they were at before the spike. In other words retail prices followed wholesale prices on the way up -- but not on the way down.

The BBC’s Andrew Neil absolutely grills Chief Scientist at the UK’s Department for the Environment, Professor Robert Watson. And who is Watson? Well, Al Gore called him “Hero of the Planet.” Damn, why can’t we find such intelligent interviews like this in the U.S.?

I went into the Cliamate Realists Index recently and had a look at the Andrew Neil
"tag" to see if any of the videos had been updated or deleted from the BBC or YouTube.
The YouTube that I had posted for MUST SEE: Climategate : UK MET office head gets a grilling and fails miserably
had in fact been deleted some time back but I was glad to find the BBC link.....BBC News - Chief defends Met Office record
This is worth a look as it takes place at the very start of ClimateGate, the video has a fantastic debate between Andrew Neil, Fred Singer and Met Office chief John Hirst, without doubt this is one of the best videos at CR, enjoy!
If any of you come across a deleted video/YouTube let me know via the contact area. To locate the Climate Realists Index look at the left hand side of the screen marked "Articles by Climate Realists and Topics", just slide down the list of some 500 names and click on whatever grabs you.

The dam began to crack towards the end of last year when leaked e-mails from one of the temples of global warming, the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, suggested that a few sleights of hand were being deployed to hide facts inconvenient to the global warming case. An official investigation into these e-mails is on-going
But the flood gates really opened after the IPCC had to withdraw its claim that the Himalayan glaciers would likely all have melted by 2035, maybe even sooner.
This turned out to have no basis in scientific fact, even though everything the IPCC produces is meant to be rigorously peer-reviewed, but simply an error recycled by the WWF, which the IPCC swallowed whole.

The bloggers are all over the UN IPCC 2007 report, the bible of global warming, which predicted all manner of dire outcomes for our planet unless we got a grip on rising temperatures -- and it seems to be crumbling in some pretty significant areas.

BBC News - Chief defends Met Office record
Oh this is good, really good. We did a story two days ago, UK Met Office’s enormously wrong weather predictions earn department big pay increases
, and it turns out now even the BBC is questioning The Met Office’s weather forecasting record, and record salaries. And questioning surprisingly hard.
In this clip, Andrew Neal grills Met Office chief John Hirst.
The best line (4:08) of the video and perhaps of the year: “Since you can’t the summer or the winter right in your forecasts, why should we give any credence to your forecast to what the temperature will be in the 2050 or 2020, which is what you do.”
This is the BBC? Sound more like Fox News, and we love it!

Run from 22mins in - Usual stuff from Watson 'science settled' but he was unsettled by Neil who suggested the models were wrong as they did not include the recent Haigh paper reversing previous solar assumptions - bit of a squirm here, blithered about uncertainties need to be communicated better (owned up to).
