Canadian Bureaucrats Reported to be Resisting Climate Policy

The Vancouver Province reports here that Environment Canada bureaucrats are distancing themselves from a government policy that they feel is wrong and will earn no public support.

Minnesota GOP, a hot-bed for climate change skeptics

Last week we posted a video of Minnesota GOP candidate, Michele Bachmann making her comedic debut as a climate change “skeptic.” Now less than a week later we have found footage of another Republican candidate in Minnesota, Bill Cullen, going on about “sunspots” and “global cooling.”

I don't know if this is a case of two election candidates singing from the same song sheet, or an overzealous “youtuber” trying to make a point. Or maybe, just maybe, it is something in the GOP kool-aid.

UK heatwave hottest in 350

UK's Met Office is reporting that UK's sweltering summer was not only entirely unpleasant, but was also historically significant. To quote: “There has not been a hotter summer since records began in 1659 when Oliver Cromwell's son Richard resigned as Lor Protector of England and France and Spain ended their 24-year war.”
