Disaster deadline shortened for emission-cutbacks in new study

The world must slash greenhouse-gas emissions in ten years or face “significant risks of appalling global harm,” says the UK-based Institute of Public Policy Research. The report says the landmark Stern report, which warned of an economic collapse equal to the 1930s depression unless emissions were curbed, is “too conservative” and governments need to move further and faster, with carbon emissions reaching their peak by 2010 to 2013.

Open Market not open for discussion

As part of DeSmog's daily scan of who's saying what and where about climate
 
change, we of course troll the numerous blogs run by the climate change denial lobby. One thing that is striking is the number of these blogs that do not allow you to comment on the posts they write.

Here are a couple of examples, the Competitive Enterprise Institute's blog, the “Open” Market and the Cato Institute's Cato-at-Liberty.

This is “blog spin” pure and simple. By not allowing comments on your site, there is no sharing of ideas or disagreement, which is one of the best features, if not the most most important and beneficial aspects, of blog technology.

So Cato and CEI, get down from your preaching pulpit and open up your blogs to your fans and, of course, your detractors. What are you afraid of?

CEI Mourning the Loss of "Green" Republicans

That Myron Ebell: what a noble environmentalist. Here he is, weeping crocodile tears over the “green” Republicans who were among the losers in yesterday's mid-term elections.

It's funny because green is not usually Myron's colour. As the Competitive Enterprise Institute's Director of Energy and Global Warming Policy, Ebell is the brainy deceiver who brought us the CO2 is Life” ad campaign, promoting the indiscriminate burning of fossil fuel as a means to keep (some) Americans wealthy.

Thank the Macaca for Inhofe's undoing

The DeSmog team is anxiously waiting for the final, final confirmation of victory in the Virginia Senate race between Democrat Jim Webb and incumbent GOP candidate George Allen. If Webb is confirmed the winner, it means the end of Senator Jim “global warming is a hoax” Inhofe as the Chair of the influential Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.
