In the News: Cap & Trade Rebuttal: Global Warming is Junk Science at Best; Manufactured Global Hoax at Worst

Well, well, well. Looks like "Cap-N-Tax" may be dead after all. Although you never know, bills like this are Frankenstein's monster: they get reanimated, repackaged and patched up with other stuff. Keep writing your senators and House reps to veto any cap and trade bill, which is simply another passed-through tax on the middle and upper-middle class.

The Day Global Warming Stood Still

An Inconvenient Truth: scientists confirm the earth has not warmed at all in the past decade

Ibd Fri Nov 20, 6:40 pm ET

Climate Change: As scientists confirm the earth has not warmed at all in the past decade, others wonder how this could be and what it means for Copenhagen. Maybe Al Gore can Photoshop something before December.


It will be a very cold winter of discontent for the warm-mongers. The climate show-and-tell in Copenhagen next month will be nothing more than a meaningless carbon-emitting jaunt, unable to decide just whom to blame or how to divvy up the profitable spoils of climate change hysteria.


The collapse of the talks coupled with the decision by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to put off the Kerry-Boxer cap-and-trade bill, the Senate's version of Waxman-Markey, until the spring thaw has led Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the leading Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee, to declare victory over Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and the triumph of observable fact over junk science.

Hackers leak e-mails, stoke climate debate

By DAVID STRINGER, Associated Press Writer Sat Nov 21, 2:34 pm ET

LONDON – Computer hackers have broken into a server at a well-respected climate change research center in Britain and posted hundreds of private e-mails and documents online — stoking debate over whether some scientists have overstated the case for man-made climate change.


More than a decade of correspondence between leading British and U.S. scientists is included in about 1,000 e-mails and 3,000 documents posted on Web sites following the security breach last week.


Some climate change skeptics and bloggers claim the information shows scientists have overstated the case for global warming, and allege the documents contain proof that some researchers have attempted to manipulate data.
