I just got the skis down from the attic. I think it's going to be a cold winter. I can feel it in my bones.
But what the heck do I know? I can't predict the weather. Neither can anyone else. Not Al Gore. Not even Phil Chapman...

Take time out to look at this link by Joanna Nova, it's a 15 page download full of facts, graphs & pictures and very well presented, you should email the link for others to read.
The Bottom Line is Simple
Don’t fall for the ‘complexity’ arguement, or accept vague answers. The climate is complex, but the only thing that matters here is whether adding more CO2 to the atmosphere will make the worldmuch warmer. Everything hinges on this one question. If carbon dioxide is not asignificant cause, then carbon sequestration, cap ‘n trade, emissionstrading, and the Kyoto agreement are a waste of time and money. All of them divert resources away from things that matter—like finding a cure for cancer, or feeding Somali babies. Having a real debate IS the best thing for the environment.

The Agmates community has been highly critical of the ABC and many mainstream media organizations for it’s shameless promotion of the Global Warming hysteria.
Now one of the ABC’s own board members Keith Windshuttle has publicly criticized the ABC for it’s blatant bias.
ABC board member Keith Windschuttle said yesterday the national broadcaster was in breach of its charter to provide a diversity of views.

This article by Louise Gray, The Telegraph Environment Correspondent is a bit of a headscratcher, there is a proposal for a legal authority to punish those who do not cut "greenhouse emissions". We are all for a reduction in pollution but not from the bad science of "the more CO2 you have the warmer the world becomes". These proposals are a sham and those in a position to make laws should do so with facts and not supposition. Piers Corbyn put it very well in a recent CO2Sceptics news blog UK: Climate Change Bill 28th October - Laws should not be passed without evidence
Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment. The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.

Overall trend since 1979 for Antarctica is slightly negative. Now, take a gander at this chart, use your common sense, and then you tell me whether or not the melting of the South Pole is about to doom us all."

If the holder of the most powerful office in the world proposed a policy guaranteed to inflict untold damage on his own country and many others, on the basis of claims so demonstrably fallacious that they amount to a string of self-deluding lies, we might well be concerned....

It was a deal to make Alistair Darling hug himself with glee. Just as the world’s existing financial markets were hitting a five-year low two weeks ago, the Treasury raked in a cool £54m from a brand new one...

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican in name only, convened an international dog and pony show in Los Angeles this week to hype the need to "do something worldwide" to combat climate change.

When in doubt go warm! This article from Stuff.Co.NZ sums up the way long range weather forecasts have started to go, and that is, if it's been warm in the past then it's going to be even warmer in the future thanks to "Man Made Climate Change". The fact is the winter temperature was under average in New Zealand thanks to a "Calm Sun", now the summer forecast says "forget what happened in the winter period" we will have a warm summer, the forecasters have completely disregarded the activity (or lack of it) on the Sun.
After a miserable winter, New Zealanders can look forward to a warmer than average summer, experts say. The Niwa National Climate Centre has predicted that much of summer will be warmer and drier than average throughout the country.
