Climate Clippings

i) Apparently walking produces more CO2 than driving. So if you are genuinely concerned with saving the planet, sit on your arse all day.

ii) A layman's guide to what is wrong with the IPCC.

iii) You have to admire China's President Hu Jintao's honesty, "The first and overriding priorities of developing countries are sustainable development and poverty eradication,"

iv) More ways to save a teaspoon of CO2 via Google.

v) Global Warming has stopped since 1998.

vi) Britain's Met Office predicts that 'global warming will set in with a vengeance after 2009, with at least half of the five following years expected to be hotter than 1998, which was the warmest year on record.'

In April, they published this prediction on the forthcoming English summer, 'the forecast for rainfall is less certain, and currently there are no indications of an increased risk of a particularly dry or particularly wet summer.' It has turned out to be the wettest sumer since 1776.
