He mentioned that NATO doesn't care about AGW; ordinary people in Europe think that the hysteria is over; the AGW advocates have changed their tactics and try to suppress the debate as much as they can because the more it is being debated, the more people see how suspicious the doctrine is. So the alarmism has subsided, Klaus thinks, but given the advantage of facts, this new silence isn't in the skeptics' interest.

[Inhofe] The bottom line is that the American public has caught on to the global warming alarmist agenda and rejected it. Look for the public now to reject the far left environmental policies of President Obama this fall—no matter how hard he tries to run from them.
BOULDER, Colo [Science News]. — Earth’s ecosystems keep soaking up more carbon as greenhouse gases accumulate in the atmosphere, new measurements find.
The research contradicts several recent studies suggesting that “carbon sinks” have reached or passed their capacity. By looking at global measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the new work calculates instead that total sinks have increased roughly in line with rising emissions.
“The sinks have been more than able to keep up with emissions,” said Pieter Tans, an atmospheric scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. Tans presented the findings May 15 at an annual conference on global monitoring hosted by the lab.
