Newly licensed pilot aims to cross the Atlantic in an electric airplane | Grist
That flight — from New York to Paris — is more than three times as long as the longest flight any electric airplane has taken, according to Wired. The electric plane, which Yates is still building, would have to go 3,500 miles, even though it only has a 700-mile range.

How’s that going to work? The plan right now is to have flying battery packs meets the plane at intervals and refuel it in midair. Crazy? Totally. Brilliant? Yeah.

Obama tries to make global warming an issue for voters |
Ask Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi how that worked out.

I liked a ditty in a comment by Gunga Din at WUWT which sums up the hockey stick history:

Stopping by Yamal One Snowing Evening
(by Michael Mann)

What tree this is, I think I know.
It grew in Yamal some time ago.
Yamal 06 I’m placing here
In hopes a hockey stick will grow.
I changed a line into a hill!
I can’t say how I was thrilled!
Then Climategate. I’m feeling ill.
Then Climategate. I’m feeling ill.
