Obama’s Tree Of Lights Signals To Copenhagen

by | 9th, December 2009

BRRR! As the great and good swim and walk to Copenhagen to talk about climate change and then race back to tell us what we should do to stop it, Barack Obama cuts down a tree, plants it in a pot and covers it in electric lights.

Over in Australia, the faster for Gaia is on a drip feed:

A man who has been on a hunger strike in protest against a lack of action on climate change will be admitted to hospital after losing 20 per cent of his body weight. Sixty-one-year-old Michael Morphett has been camped for more than a month on the lawn outside Parliament House in Canberra, and will be taken to hospital to treat dangerously low blood pressure and for observation.

From the clockwork hospital, we hear from Al Gore. Has he looked at the Climate Gate scandal in any detail?

Q: How damaging to your argument was the disclosure of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University?

A: To paraphrase Shakespeare, it’s sound and fury signifying nothing. I haven’t read all the e-mails, but the most recent one is more than 10 years old. These private exchanges between these scientists do not in any way cause any question about the scientific consensus.

What consensus?
