We have also enjoyed the area. It is worth visiting, with the Creuse a good focus. The Barrage d'Eguzon, which is on the Creuse, fits into the landscape very well.

There's a lot of interesting stuff here today. But I thought the Private Eye story (3:25 PM) the most interesting. Anyone agree?

Until the arrival of wind turbines The Limousin (La Corrèze, La Creuse and La Haute-Vienne) was an unspoilt agricultural backwater with porcelain the only major industry and one of the poorer regions of France. Since their arrival the only part of that statement you need to change is unspoilt to despoiled

steveta, fascinating to see how differently that Mori survey is spun by the media.
Your quotes are from the The Register, while the Chris Looney at the Guardian says "The strange relationship between global warming denial and... speaking English"

Climate: 'An excuse for new taxes', scientists 'don't know what they're talking about'

Well, China has said that it "might" announce a cap next year: LINK. However ...

Davey. Has as much chance as getting rich western countries to cut agressively. As he does if getting a cap on china.
so 'fun' to be had with both parts of interview

Yes, Barry that's true. But, before we get too excited, we should consider what else he is reported as saying:

Whereas "developing countries [and that includes China] should be allowed to carry on increasing their emissions for a few years but at a lower rate and with clear targets for when the level should peak and start declining" ... "We expect the rich, developed countries to cut aggressively ..." In other words, we must cut our 1% of global emissions aggressively, while China (far richer than us) is to be permitted to expand its 27% for several years (quantum undefined), despite its per capita emissions already being on a par with the EU's.

A step forward maybe - but not much of a deal.

Worthy of more attention.. ie if I, Andrew, Lord Lawson, or any sceptic said the following, cue climate denier outrage....?

Ed Davey said that there was little point in Britain making great efforts to cut emissions if other countries did not. “If I looked around the world and no one was doing anything I would have to ask myself the question: is it worth us doing anything if no one else is?” he said.

It looks like the sort of picturesque village that the Tour de France should visit next year.
