Peter Glover: Dismantling The West’s Energy-Climate Paradigm | The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF)
All the signs are, when it comes to the fundamentally key national issue of energy security, that the world’s leading Western economies have forsaken the best interests of the people. They have done so by confusing (energy) reality and (climate) theory as being of the same magnitude. As Einstein put it, “In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.”
World has cooled on global warming - Belfast Newsletter
If the earth is entering a cooling phase policies designed to counter warming could prove wrongheaded.

We need an open and robust debate about our energy future and one in which the science is honest and fit to stand the sceptical challenge test, not spun with apocalyptic visions to fit pre-approved outcomes.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds warming improves plant health and fruit production
A new paper published in Global Change Biology simulates the effect of global warming on plants grown in the field and "finds that plants exposed to elevated temperatures flower earlier,... flower at a larger vegetative size, suggesting that warming probably causes acceleration in vegetative development." The authors also find "warming increases mean fitness (fruit production) by ~ 25%." The paper adds to many other peer-reviewed publications finding both warming and elevated CO2 levels can improve plant health.
