"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"

Owen Paterson puts 'dry homes' before greens' 'wet lands'

Telegraph, Christopher Booker
"The shocking truth, as I have been reporting here since early January, is that those unprecedented floods were not just a freak of nature, brought on by what turned out to be only England’s 16th wettest winter in 250 years. They were deliberately brought about by a fundamental shift in management policy, shaped by EU directives and enforced by the Environment Agency, which in certain areas of the country, notably the Levels in my own county of Somerset, put the interests of wildlife and “biodiversity” above those of people and property.
Someone who grasped this when, at my instigation, he came down to Somerset in January to talk to practical local experts was the Environment Secretary Owen Paterson. After private meetings with those experts, whose pleas had long been ignored, he returned to London with a clear idea of what needed to be done.
The Environment Agency should be directed to dredge the rivers which had been horribly silting up ever since it took control of them in 1996. Management of the Levels should then be handed over to a “Somerset rivers authority”, including those local boards which previously kept the Levels effectively pumped and drained for generations. There should be a new sluice at the mouth of the River Parrett, to prevent silt being pushed back into it by the second highest tidal range in the world. And within six weeks the relevant local organisations should present him with an agreed plan to ensure that this winter’s disaster is not repeated.
On Thursday this was just what happened, when Mr Paterson was able to announce that these bodies had come up with just the proposals he had asked them for. But all through these recent weeks, a rival lobby has been desperately trying to divert attention from all this. “Environmentalists” have been battling to preserve their dream by hiding everything which made disaster inevitable. Their “useful idiots”, such as the BBC and the journalist George Monbiot, have repeatedly tried to blame the disaster on “climate change”, and on greedy farmers increasing the run-off of water from the hills by planting maize: two theories which no proper scientific evidence supports."
