Excerpt: ...These unnecessary and destructive actions can be undone in years to come when reality intrudes and it becomes obvious that the AGW scam is the biggest hoax in scientific history, but untold damage will be done in the meantime. Ecotheists have been trying to bring down the American economy and return us to the Stone Age for decades. They may have succeeded. And that's the memo.

Excerpt: RED HOT LIES: HOW GLOBAL WARMING ALARMISTS USE THREATS, FRAUD AND DECEPTION TO KEEP YOU MISINFORMED By Christopher C. Horner Regnery, $27.95, 407 pages
REVIEWED BY LARRY THORNBERRY: Christopher C. Horner has deconstructed global-warming alarmism before, but in "Red Hot Lies," he focuses on how the global-warming industry, with huge money and power on the line, defends itself and perpetuates its beliefs.
China is also asking the richest countries to commit to donating 1% of their gross domestic product to help poor countries fight global warming.

Will the U.N. Chill Out on Climate Change? - December 2, 2008
By Indur M Goklany, Ph.D, who has represented the United States at the International Panel on Climate Change and in the negotiations leading to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Excerpt: I examine this issue in a refereed paper to be published in Energy & Environment. The abstract reads: Mortality estimates for the year 2000 from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate, however, that a dozen other risk factors contribute more to global mortality and global burden of disease. Moreover, the state-of-the-art British-sponsored fast track assessments (FTAs) of the global impacts of climate change show that through 2085-2100, climate change would contribute less to human health and environmental threats than other risk factors. Climate change is, therefore, unlikely to be the 21st century's most important environmental problem.

Global warming discussion likened to ‘religious service' - By UK's Nigel Lawson's speech before the House of Lords given on November 17, 2008.
Excerpt: It is possible that I have had slightly more influence in that way on affairs than by speaking in this House. That is not the only reason why I have not spoken previously in this House on the Bill. The other reason is that I felt that it was unbecoming for an unbeliever to take part in a religious service, which is what all this is really about.
Excerpt: Where are the Facts? The Republican Study Committee of Colorado (RSCC) challenges President-elect Obama to provide any evidence that the opinions he cited in his first major policy statement on global warming are based in reality. RSCC chairman, Rep. Kevin Lundberg, said "It sounded more like something a Hollywood speech writer would put together for a movie script, rather than a serious policy statement for a president-elect."
Environmentalism's Appropriation of Christianity - December 2, 2008
Excerpt: Eco-Christology is not the central belief system of the environmental movement. Central movement myths are: industrial pollution is destroying the Earth; the wilderness can withstand no more human incursion; there are too many people; technology is out of control; there is an ecological crisis, etc. The environmental movement is not merely trying to get preachers to embrace these myths. They want preachers, teachers, professors, journalists, editors, baristas, barbers, and bartenders to embrace these myths.
By Alexander Bedritsky, the head of the Russian hydrometeorological service.
Excerpt: He said that a number of theories existed including that there could be a period of global cooling linked to the sun's activity. "None of the hypotheses can either be checked or discarded," he said. "There is an opinion that Europe will freeze should the Gulf Stream disappear. I do not share such unequivocal opinions," Bedritsky said.

By Statistician Dr. Richard Mackey -
Excerpt: This is a most curious reference. It means that Gore is advocating the abandonment of the IPCC doctrine and barracking for the study and understanding of climate dynamics that ignores totally the IPCC/AWG doctrine and focuses on all the other variables, especially how climate dynamics are driven by atmospheric/oceanic oscillations, the natural internal dynamics of the climate system and the role of the Sun in climate dynamics.
Excerpt: The exceptional conditions, including 60cm (23in) of snow on Alpine slopes and even more in the Pyrenees, has given a much needed boost to the ski industry after claims that global warming could devastate its multibillion-pound business. "This is nature's way of cocking a snook at the experts," said Christian Rochette, the director of Ski France International, the tourist body for French resorts.
Despite extreme cold, 'stories about global warming have not stopped' - The Australian - November 29, 2008
Excerpt: ABC board member Keith Windschuttle said yesterday the national broadcaster was in breach of its charter to provide a diversity of views. "The ABC and the Fairfax press rarely provide an opportunity for global warming sceptics to put their view," Mr Windschuttle said. "The science is not settled. "We are seeing an increasing number of people with impeccable scientific backgrounds questioning part or whole of the story. I don't believe the ABC has been reflecting the genuine diversity of the debate.
