Lorne Gunter: World Cooling To Global Warming

As the climate-change theory crumbles, expect its supporters to be more vocal in its defence, more insistent that the science is ironclad. Like the cultish followers of any faddish religion when it nears the end of its fashionableness, they will proclaim their views even more vociferously and denounce more forcefully all those who disagree.

Christopher Monckton of Brenchley: Don’t worry about the ickle birdies

“BUT what about the ickle birdies?” wailed the ancient, off-blonde representative of the planet’s indigenous peoples in the shapeless, grimy, crumpled eco-sackcloth shift that is de rigueur this season among the female of the species here at the shapeless, grimy, crumpled Rio conference center.

Richard Black: Rio summit ends with warning on corporate power

The UN sustainable development summit in Brazil has ended with world leaders adopting a political declaration hammered out a few days previously.

Back in November 2005, your perspective on the Kyoto Protocol was the shorthand way to judge your climate change bona fides. Even express constructive criticism of the existing treaty arrangements under Kyoto and you ran the risk of being pilloried by environmental advocates as some sinister force of darkness. Continue reading

Rio+20: Take science seriously and change the process

Now with that we can agree. Take science seriously, expunge the NGOs and ‘civil society’ horseshit and get on with solid development for the benefit of humanity and the environment. Not what these clowns have in mind though. Continue reading
