"Carbon (Dioxide) trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on earth.....And here’s the great thing about it. Unlike traditional commodities markets, which will eventually involve delivery to someone in physical form, the carbon (dioxide) market is based on lack of delivery of an invisible substance to no-one. Since the market revolves around creating carbon (dioxide) credits, or finding carbon (dioxide) reduction projects whose benefits can then be sold to those with a surplus of emissions, it is entirely intangible."

This blog has been tracking the 'Global Warming Scam' for over ten years now. There are a very large number of articles being published in blogs and more in the MSM who are waking up to the fact the public refuse to be conned any more and are objecting to the 'green madness' of governments and the artificially high price of energy. This blog will now be concentrating on the major stories as we move to the pragmatic view of 'not if, but when' and how the situation is managed back to reality. To quote Professor Lindzen, "a lot of people are going to look pretty silly"

'Frozen Planet' gave us beautiful images, but an unbalanced picture
"In each case, however, he arranged his evidence in a notably loaded way, carefully omitting much of the information a less selective picture would have included. Like so many before him, his sequence on Antarctica – with 90 per cent of the ice on the planet – focused almost entirely on the Antarctic Peninsula, the one small part of that continent where ice is significantly melting – not because of atmospheric warming, but because a shift in ocean currents has brought in a flood of warmer water. Not mentioned, of course, was that most of Antarctica has if anything got colder in the past 50 years, its growth in sea ice counterbalancing the modest shrinkage of ice in the Arctic.
This too has probably been caused not by rising global temperatures, but by changing wind patterns, and warmer water coming in from the Pacific. Great play has been made of the new ability of ships to sail through ice-free Arctic waters. But ships were sailing freely along the northern coast of Russia 70 years ago. Meanwhile, winter ice further south, in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Baltic has increased markedly in recent years."
