Say no to Brexit

This indecision’s bugging me (Esta indecision me molesta) If you don’t want me set me free (Si no quieres librame) Exactly who I’m supposed to be (Digame que tengo ser) Don’t you know witch clothes even fits me? (Sabes bruja ropa me queda) Come on and let me know (Me tienes que decir) Should I…

Now that Sou has written at length, I can throw in my few thoughts. The first of which is that it is all really very silly indeed, in so many ways, by so many people. Firstly, what were Shukla, Maibach and all the others thinking when they did all of this from their work email…

As I’ve argued before, carbon taxes are better than carbon trading because they are simpler, there is less bureaucracy, less room for political interference, and less room for a parasitic class to form. In witness of which, David Hone’s article about the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA)’s “vision”. Well, that was a bit short, wasn’t…

There’s much tweeting going on of Real Global Temperature Trend, p18 – Now how high is climate sensitivity? Here’s the answer of the world’s 13 leading climate experts! especially by those blessed to be in the magic 13. However, I like Jonathon Gregory’s answer: It’s a good question but I don’t place any confidence in…

It’s in the graun, so it must be true. However, just for once I’m going to agree with them. So, quick summary: Minnesota has a social cost of carbon, ish, and a Commission to quantify and establish a range of environmental costs associated with each method of electricity generation; and requires utilities to use the…

Moyhu wins the prize for actually bothering to track the GWPF and its waste-of-time “inquiry”. That’s about all there is to say, really. I could take the piss out of them a bit more I suppose but it hardly seems worth the effort. Terence Kealey (chairman) ends up looking like an idiot, which in GW…

Yet more carbon tax

TL;DR: nothing new to see here. Anyway, I was pushing my favourite theme, How to decarbonize? More free market! and to my absolute astonishment it didn’t go down terribly well. A number of questions in the comments were re-hashing stuff from Carbon tax now but no-one ever re-reads old blog posts just because I link…

mt has a nice post pointing at an article by Ray Pierrehumbert, How to decarbonize? Look to Sweden. mt and I both like the article, though we choose to emphasise slightly different aspects of it. I offer you: In my experience, inaction on restraining carbon dioxide emissions does not stem from insufficient understanding of the…

Phew, wot a scorcher!

Time for some re-posting of everyone else’s news, just to reassure regular readers after the Exxon stuff that I haven’t gone over to the dork side. First though a link to more of the bleedin’ obvious, Consensus on consensus: a synthesis of consensus estimates on human-caused global warming by Bart Verheggen, or Devastating Reply To…

Yet more Exxon drivel

The drive to distract us from reality continues. Quite why otherwise sensible people are so keen on stuff like Pressure on Exxon Over Climate Change Intensifies With New Documents – I saw it via Stefan Rahmstorf’s fb feed – I don’t know, because it is utter drivel. To let Exxon have their rebuttal first, because…
