"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"

Pachauri quietly blows goalposts away, pretends to like skeptics. It’s all PR to keep the gravy train running
"Pachauri is chief PR officer for the Global-not-so-Warming-Gravy-Train. His job is to say things with a straight face that are the complete opposite to what he’s said before, and to pretend he has never said anything differently. .......In 1990 the IPCC told global policymakers that even if they stabilized emissions, the world would warm by 0.2C per decade for the next few decades. That was their “low estimate”. And it was wrong (despite the best efforts of post hoc cherry picking). Then the global-pause became noticeable. So in 2008 NOAA announced that pauses of less that 15 years or more would fit with climate simulations (which meant pauses of more than that were a problem for the models). James Hansen was caught in ClimateGate saying that ‘no upward trend’ has to continue for a total of 15 years “before we get worried.” When the pause got a bit longer still, Ben Santer said in a paper, that really it was 17 years we needed to see. That was 2011. Now in 2013, Pachauri says we’ll need 30 -40 years of the IPCC being wrong before we can say they’re wrong."
