That is what The Grauniad said over the weekend. Cabinet ministers have agreed a far-reaching, legally binding “green deal” that will commit the UK to two decades of drastic cuts in carbon emissions. The package will require sweeping changes to domestic life, transport and business and will place Britain at the forefront of the global…

Politician(s)

Well, just one politician really. And an American one, and Republican at that, so I suppose we can hope his stupidity isn’t truely representative. David Appell provides a wonderful quote from Chris Christie and Global Warming, from which I excerpt: …that’s probably one of the reason’s why I became a lawyer, and not a doctor,…

“Part I” is very presumptuous. I might never write part II. Ah well, I press onwards in hope. I’m going to take my text from Climategate: the corruption of Wikipedia and see what we can learn about wiki’s workings from the way people misunderstand it. I should warn you that blog is mostly recycled Solomon.…
