Shell, which in the course of contributing to global warming posted a $9 billion profit in the third quarter of this year, has just released a report showing that climate change could, in fact, create a market opportunity for British businesses amounting to more than $60 billion over the next 10 years.

And If You Believe This: Buy My Exercise Machine ...

What a great one-two punch you get from Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe and the right-wing blogsite Canada Free Press. CFP is always at the ready to run material from any climate change denier on the continent, but Jim Inhofe's outburst today is a classic.

The headline on her last column was Harper unafraid to say the right thing.
