Romm's hell and high water slams "denyers and delayers"

Haven't read former US department of energy, assistant secretary, Joseph Romm's book Hell or High Water yet, but I will after seeing some of the quotes from this recent book review:

Helping plant these doubts [about global warming] is a handful of scientist-commentators – “A group small enough to fit into a typical home bathroom,” writes Romm – who are often funded by the oil and gas industry and are adept at exploiting one of the media's biggest vulnerabilities: Its pursuit of balance.

Global warming, El Nino set to make 2007 warmest year on record, experts say

Global warming and El Nino are forecast to join forces for a more turbulent climate this year. Combined, they are set to bring extreme conditions across the globe and make 2007 warmer than 1998, the hottest year on record. It is likely temperatures will also exceed 2006, which was declared in December the hottest in Britain since 1659 and the sixth warmest in global records.

Monckton, global warming, UFO's and time travel

It seems that British Aristocrat and self-appointed global warming expert, Christopher Monckton, has found a publication worthy of his theories. Tim Lambert, who runs the ever-great Deltoid blog, is reporting that Monckton's global warming junk science has been published in Nexus magazine, alongside an article about the “Shadow government's UFO agenda” and one on the “Anglo-American-Zionist” 9/11 terrorist plot.

Punters guessing about climate change

A UK bookmaker is offering odds of 25-1 that a great white shark will be caught off the UK next year - part of a new series of climate change related bets. Nothing scientific about any of this, but it's interesting to see that SOME people are prepared to put their money were their mouths are.
