• Christopher Booker: The Warmists’ Last (Mexican) Wave

    • Date: 05/12/10

    The global warming scare was fun while it lasted, but the joke’s over. If, last week, frozen behind a snowdrift, you heard a faint hysterical squeaking, it might well have been the sound of those 20,000 delegates holed up behind a wall of armed security guards in the sun-drenched Mexican holiday resort of Cancun, telling […]

    • Date: 05/12/10

    A year ago tomorrow, just before the opening of the UN Copenhagen world climate summit, the British Meteorological Office issued a confident prediction. The mean world temperature for 2010, it announced, ‘is expected to be 14.58C, the warmest on record’ – a deeply worrying 0.58C above the 1961-1990 average. World temperatures, it went on, were […]

  • Matt Ridley: Why This Extreme Weather Tells Us Nothing

  • Andrew Kenny: A Year After Climategate, The Corruption Of Science Persists

    • Date: 28/11/10

    I’ve never arm-wrestled Bill Gates, but we have now had a good natured debate in the pages of the Wall Street Journal. Here’s his effort, and here’s mine.
