Science forgotten in climate change fuss | Myles Allen 11.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
No one points to any scientific problems with Phil Jones's data, yet the 'fallen idol' narrative is too alluring for the media to resist It is odd that we still don't take climate change seriously. Judging from the acres of newsprint being devoted to the subject right now, you might find that remark surprising. But look at the furore over the University of East Anglia emails : environmentalists hand-wringing as if the end of the world had suddenly been brought forward; their opponents crowing that the whole of climate science has to start again from scratch. Can you imagine this kind of response if the subject of the emails had been something we actually care about, such as health or the economy? The discovery of the HIV virus involved ...

Nepal's silent stance at Copenhagen 11.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
Nepal won't stick its neck out like Tuvalu because the government feels it has too much to lose from its neighbours When the tiny island nation of Tuvalu stuck its neck out and forced a delay in the UN climate change negotiations in Copenhagen this week it was a David and Goliath moment. This Pacific island chain may be the world's fourth-smallest country but it is one of the most affected by climate change. It proved it was willing to square up to the world most powerful leaders and demand they take a more aggressive goal than limiting global warming to 2C. However, it was a short-lived moment – the conference president ultimately rejected Tuvalu's suggestion. Despite noisy protests by environmental groups supporting the island nation, ...

I'm not conned by Copenhagen | Leah Borromeo 11.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
Enough hot air about climate change. A potentially powerful global movement is being hijacked by some very slick PR More than 50,000 members of the "I Only Fly to India" militia will descend on Copenhagen over the next week to demonstrate over a shopping list of demands longer than J-Lo's rider . Attendees are an international who's who of the best-branded campaign groups from Oxfam and ActionAid to those superglue and D-lock specialists Plane Stupid . Lesser-known groups like Brazil's Land Reform Movement will be there to boost everyone's ethnic credentials. Nothing like rolling out some non-white, non-middle-class people in front of the cameras to add strength to your cause. Developed countries like the US and the UK have pledged to cut ...
