Energy experts and politicians are focusing on this month's climate change summit in Copenhagen. Much attention will be paid to the opinions of the US and Chinese governments, which between them account for 40% of global greenhouse gasses.
In the case of the US, any agreement to bring about major emission reductions would need Senate approval.
Meanwhile McIntyre and others continue to analyse the Climategate letters with precision. The scrutiny and debate will take some time, maybe years. As I always try to be balanced in my opinions and here are a few tips for the scientists at UEA.
The politicians can't afford to lose face in Copenhagen, but they all know that recent events have seriously dented the prospects of new nuclear-build projects, including the present weakness of world gas prices. In the nuclear sector there has been a raft of bad news, including cost and time overruns, along with technical concerns about the new designs.
Will Copenhagen produce anything more than superficial agreements? The key decisions have already been made says Global Researcher (a very interesting read). After the celebrity bash is over and they're taken home in their private jets, they'll rub their hands with glee at the prospect of managing to grab our hard earned cash so easily.
Along with other doubters, I'm pleased that Copenhagen may not produce everything many politicians desire. We need as much time as possible for the sceptical scientists to see the figures which have been hidden for so long and to make their comparisons.
