Rethinking climate change

Finally it appears the tide may be turning: the media are no longer falling off the global warming cliff like trained lemmings. Instead, journalists are beginning to exercise some personal integrity, check the numbers and ask awkward questions, no longer accepting the propaganda fed them by advocates of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).

In a wonderfully reasonable, accessible and accurate summary in the Sunday Telegraph Christopher Monkton describes the extent to which the science of climate change has been compromised in the efforts to project a "consensus" on AGW. In an affirmation of the truth will out, his summary reveals that those promoting AGW have stepped a long way out on a limb that can no longer support the hot air they are trying to foist on the public.

Yes, the metaphors are mixed and the language is full of jargon, but the topic is global warming and I am trying to fit in. Not.
