Then he links environmental efforts to sub-prime lending and suggests people/companies who invest in renewable energy will lose all when the market collapses as the global warming myth is exposed, and hopes the government's ETS review will reveal that no action is the wisest course of action.
- Warming of the climate system is unequivocal
- Spatial agreement between regions of significant warming across the globe and locations of significant observed changes in many systems consistent with warming is very unlikely to be due solely to natural variability.
- Eleven of the last twelve years (1995-2006) rank among the twelve warmest years in the instrumental record of global surface temperature. (since 1850)
- Continued GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions at or above current rates would cause further warming and induce many changes in the global climate system during the 21st century that would very likely be larger than those observed during the 20th century
I have nominated the article for the Christopher Booker prize 2009.
The winner gets a helping hand on their one way kayaking trip to the Arctic, however I can't help thinking the organization which publishes the winning article also deserves an award.
