The Met Office – defending the indefensible, as per usual – Telegraph Blogs
Let's just remind ourselves of the key charges against the Met Office:

1. Since 1990, when it was taken over by the arch-warmist Sir John Houghton (founder of the IPCC), it has become so wedded to the cause of promoting the AGW "consensus" with the help of its dodgy computer models that it has grown increasingly out of touch with climate reality.

2. The dramatic warming it has been so assiduously been predicting these last few year simply hasn't materialised. This suggests there is a major flaw with the AGW theory on which the Met Office has rather foolishly decided to stake its credibility.

3. Rather than admit its failure publicly, the Met Office tried to adjust its forecasts by stealth – on Christmas Eve: a good time to bury bad news – and got found out, embarrassed and humiliated...

Climate skeptics who say they are fighting the good fight for truth must be proud to have @JamesDelingpole as their comrade in arms.

I mean, it's not like @JamesDelingpole makes climate skeptics look foolish, or anything like that. Now Monckton, there's a gold bullion!  [I'd pay good money to see Kloor attempt to debate Monckton on global warming.]
Live Chat: Can We Conquer Climate Change? - ScienceNOW
It's been called the greatest challenge in human history: curbing emissions of global warming gases so they don't cause catastrophic climate change—without wrecking the global economy and dooming billions to poverty in the process. Some say it will take breakthrough technologies and profound changes in how we live. Others argue we can make a major dent with existing technologies—if we get serious about acting now.

Join us for a live chat at 3 p.m. EST on Thursday, 17 January, on this page, with two scientists who have taken a careful look at what it will take to conquer climate change.
