Why carbon prices can’t deliver the 2°C target | Warmist Kevin Anderson
A carbon price can always be paid by the wealthy
Professors, MPs, ministers, business leaders, GPs, barristers, etc. would all be able to absorb a significant proportion of any politically-acceptable carbon price. So we may buy a slightly more efficient 4WD/SUV, cut back a little on our frequent flying, consider having a smaller second home where we may even choose an A+ retro Smeg fridge-freezer (the A++ being a little too ‘modern’ looking) – but overall we’d carry on with our business as usual. Meanwhile the poorer sections of our society (remembering that the mode salary in the UK is around £17k p.a.) would have to cut back still further in heating their inadequately insulated and badly designed rented properties. Their children would perhaps begin to suffer more bronchial problems as their houses become colder and damper; so more trips to the doctor – but the increased price of road fuel makes this more expensive. Perhaps they could cut back on the quality of their food – after all it’s three for the price of two on processed ready meals at the cheapermarket.
The NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics Blog: Warming up to warming?
RT is the first Russian 24/7 English-language news channel. RT's Oksana Boyko asks: Global warming or global sham? Real emergency or conspiracy to hike taxes?

Lord Christopher Monckton joins Oksana to untangle the politics behind climate science.

Monckton: "It is very clear that, when the Berlin wall came down, the extreme communist or Marxist factions had to find somewhere alse to go to do the damage to the West that they wanted to do; and they found that in the environmental movement.
Wettest July Ever At The Exceptional Permanent Southwest Drought | Real Science
The Weather Channel says that this summer has been one of the wettest on record in the southwest.
Rower Progress | Real Science
The rowers are now six weeks and almost 25% of the way through their trip, with sub-freezing weather forecast at Pond Inlet in a few days. Hopefully they brought their steel oars for cutting thorough the metre thick ice when they arrive at Pond Inlet in December.
NOAA Propaganda Gets More Desperate | NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
The reality is that the rate of warming since 1980 (which is 0.15C/decade) is pretty much the same as from 1910–39. So why don’t they tell us this?

For that matter, why don’t the AMS point this out?

The answer to both these questions is, I suspect, not very edifying and would embarrass real scientists.
