As the United States’ Lame Stream Media continues to ignore the Climategate scandal, the Brits continue to be on top of things. I don’t usually post to simply link to someone’s article, but this expose from the UK’s Daily Express on Natural Climate Change Deniers lists 100 reasons why climate change IS natural. Take the time to read the list as many of their talking points are debunked.
Here are a few to entice you:
No. 8 The IPCC theory is driven by just 60 scientists and favourable reviewers not the 4,000 usually cited
Update – Lord Christopher Monckton has gotten some attention at least on Fox News and other balanced media outlets.

The first story features local politicians in the City of Pittsburgh. As a little background, the City of Pittsburgh has been in state receivership for a number of years because city officials cannot control their spending. One of the biggest factors is their underfunded pension funds. Pittsburgh’s Democrat boy mayor, Luke Ravenstahl, has quite a scheme to raise taxes (it always seems to be about raising taxes) without really ticking off his constituents. He has decided to impose a one percent tax “tuition” tax on all students attending institutions of higher educations within city limits. His position is that they receive “services,” but do not pay anything towards them.
Word is that Rush Limbaugh is sending a few packages of Zicam to Nobel Prize winner Al “CO2 is death” Gore. Gore maybe be developing some hacking symptoms as recent e-mails shed light on the “settled science” behind the man-made global warming push. If you have family or friends who still rely on the “dead tree media” (that’s a new name from our friends in the UK) they probably have not heard the story yet.
As I have found latey, journalists in the United Kingdom seem to have the scoop on the Yankee reporters. This passage from the UK Telegraph story brought a smile;
