"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 five 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"

Climate change scientist duped sceptic thinktank into handing over confidential files showing 'how it subverted issue'
"Richard Klein, climate researcher at the Stockholm Environment Institute, told the Guardian: 'It's an own goal. It's not just his own credibility, his own integrity on the line.
'It's a whole community of climate scientists who, with the odd exception, want to do good science and make sure science is recognised.
'It doesn't just blur the line between climate science and science policy.
'It blurs the line between what are acceptable and what are not acceptable methods.
'He is not perceived by the outside world as acting in his personal capacity.
'He acted also by responding as Peter Gleick the scientist and of course that hurts other scientists as well.'
His thoughts were echoed by John Nolt, professor of environmental ethics at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, who fears the anger over the way he obtained the information would take the focus away from climate change itself.
He added that many of the revelations in the documents were already known.
Gleick, who admitted his part in the scam after Heartland's financial plans and donor list was put online, has now decided not to take up a post on the National Centre for Science Education that would have seen him defending climate change in classrooms.
But he could now face legal action, with Heartland President Joseph Bast saying he was now consulting experts on the breach."
