Two decades, no global warming – It is gratifying that the media is slowly beginning to acknowledge the absence of global warming for nearly two decades.

China says (again): go jump – If we are going down (by suicide) please join us. Uh, no, say the Chinese. China just barred its airlines (they’re communist; they can do that) from joining an EU scheme that could charge for carbon emissions from flights in and out of Europe, escalating a global trade row […]
