UK 'DAILY MAIL' REPORTS STAGGERING INCREASE IN ARCTIC ICE CAP

Posted 23 July 2015

Opening item in UK Daily Mail's comment: "In a major report last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gave a grave assessment of how man-made global warming was rapidly destroying the Arctic ice cap....How interesting then, that the latest analysis of 88 million measuremenst from the European Space Agency's Cryosat satellite show the northern ice-cap INCREASED by a staggering 41 per cent in 2013, and, despite a modest shortage last year is bigger that at any time for decades."

CARDINAL PELL CHALLENGES POPE FRANCIS'S DOGMA ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Posted 21 July 2015

"'The Church has got no mandate from the Lord to pronounce on scientific matters.' In that one sentence Cardinal Pell puts his finger on what is wrong with Laudato Si', Pope Francis's encyclical on the environment.In that document, Francis waded into an argument about climate change and took sides. ...In an interview in Thursday's Financial Times, the Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy stepped out of line. It was a brave thing to do: Pell's wholesale reform of the Vatican's finances is making him plenty of enemies as it is, and now he's even more vulnerable to attack."  Damian Thompson, writing in The Spectator, UK.

EMISSIONS TRADING - WHY AUSTRALIA IS TRAPPED IN A LOT OF HOT AIR

Posted 18 July 2015

"Outside the EU, serious countries are not implementing emissions trading schemes. That...crucial fact shows no sign of changing any time soon....For almost a decade now, a nation [Australia] that will have little influence over international policy developments and no discernible effect on global climate patterns, has allowed the issue to dominate domestic political debate and consume political leaders. It is nonsensical - perhaps the most blatant demonstration anywhere in the Western World about how politics has drifted from the battlegrounds of ideology and pragmatic policy choices to a preoccupation with identity."  Chris Kenny, writing in The Australian.
