Britons are finally waking up from that global warming spell cast upon them years earlier.
Hat Tip Dirk H
What happens when the predictions of mountebanks (my favorite word lately) don’t come true, and the opposite happens?
People stop believing. That’s what’s happening now in Great Britain.
The online Daily Mail reports today on how the number of sceptic Britons has doubled in the last 4 years.
Obviously they don’t believe the junk science that insists global warming leads to more extreme cold and snow. Sorry, but many people aren’t that stupid to buy it. So take that crap alarmist science and use it for the next time you have to go.
This new scepticism in Britain is based on real-life observation, with people comparing the horoscopes of snowless winters heard earlier to the reality that is observed in real life today.
And for those who still believe in AGW, many now don’t think that it’s a real problem. The Daily Mail writes:
Fewer than half those polled – 46 per cent – are ready to use their cars less, and only 47 per cent are prepared to take public transport more often. Fewer than a quarter – 23 per cent – are willing to fly less.”

Your link description is wrong, Pierre; it’s the Daily Mail, not the Telegraph.
Thanks Dirk – fixed (my apologies to the Daily Mail)
Now Ban Ki-Moon pulls a Merkel (or Obama); dropping warmism in exchange for “clean energy and sustainable development”.
From leftist central itself:
This signals the death of the AGW propaganda campaign and the shift to the new biodiversity gravy train, IMHO. All NGO’s will have to undergo re-education; and career opportunities for activist scientists will dry up in the warmist sector.

It is worse than we thought.
European commission extends carbon market freeze indefinitely
The European commission’s emergency suspension last week of trading in carbon allowances to put a halt to rampant theft of credits by hackers has been extended indefinitely until countries can prove their systems are protected from further fraud.
While the suspension had been expected to end last night, Brussels now says that the freeze in trades had been imposed to give the commission executive some breathing space to figure out what to do.
Hmm, i guess we must shut down all fossil fuel power plants now when they run out of permits. 😉
German news about this are scarce (notoriously incapable German media) but here’s one from a 4 hours ago that states trading will resume in “some countries” next week:
Search for “Emissionshandel” in German Google news if you need to find out more…
“Greenland ice sheet is safer than scientists previously thought” reports the guardian.co.uk.
But…”the next scientific question to answer was whether warmer oceans would erode the edges of ice caps, causing them to fall rapidly into the ocean. “The real threat now is from the oceans melting the west Antarctic ice sheet, which is 3km-4km thick, of which 1km-2km is below sea level.”
This is what happens when you make a prediction about warm winters resulting from the greehouse effect and people see the exact opposite. British people are HIGHLY sceptical over Met Office weather forecasts let alone climate scientists.

When will they give up this scam? Only another hard and widespread Little Ice Age will do the trick. Or maybe…..
I often think that ‘do you believe in global warming’ is a bit like ‘do you believe in Hell’. Many would say they do but don’t stop sinning. All surveys like this tell me is that lots of people lie… even to themselves.
