    A pact by almost 200 nations to slash greenhouse gases used in refrigerators and air conditioners will likely fall short of governments’ hopes of averting a full half-degree Celsius (0.9 Fahrenheit) of warming this century, scientists say.

    Here we are with yet another year experiencing either record or near-record yields in corn, soybeans, and wheat.

    • Decca Aitkenhead, The Guardian

    Fracking is great, the green movement is a religion, his dire predictions about climate change were nonsense – and robots don’t mind the heat, so what does it matter? At 97, the creator of Gaia theory is as mischievous and subversive as ever. […] Sometimes described as a futurist, James Lovelock has been Britain’s leading […]

    European Parliament lawmakers presented differing visions for Europe’s carbon-market reform in a signal to investors that an overhaul of the ailing cap-and-trade program after 2020 will likely require months of further political bargaining.
