Climategate: Greenpeace leader admits "exaggeration"

As broadcast on BBC:

Virtual buckeye to Benja Sariwatta.

But wait, there's more!

Dr. Richard Lindzen, professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, argues in the Wall Street Journal, that confident claims of catastrophe are exaggerated.


James Delingpole, columnist for The Telegraph in London, England, presents several articles further demolishing claims of global warming. Here's an item that is particularly interesting for the content, yes; but also for its veddy British style:

Carbon trading is the Emperor’s New Clothes of international finance. It was invented by none other than Ken Lay, whose Enron would currently be one of the prime beneficiaries in the global alternative energy market, if it hadn’t been shown to be (nearly) as fraudulent as the current AGW [Accelerated Global Warming] scam. It is a licence to fleece, cheat and rob. Still, jolly embarrassing for the Danes to get caught red handed, what with their hosting a conference shortly in which the world’s leaders will try, straight-faced, to persuade us that carbon emissions trading is the only viable way of defeating ManBearPig.

Virtual buckeye to Frank Koch for both items.
