I see the BBC is again misrepresenting water vapour from a cooling tower:

They are claiming the water vapour is "Anthropogenic emissions... or smoke pouring out of an industrial chimney"

From GWPF:

The £1 million reward for CCS in the UK has been scrapped, announcement due today.

The states of Texas and Virginia have written to John Kerry (copied to China, India et al) stating that "US President Barack Obama’s plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions is unlawful and likely to be struck down in court."

Quick info : that top "Seen Elsewhere" story up on the right of this screen..
..It's important cossolar firm Abengoa's collapse is likely to turn into Spain's biggest bankruptcy and is affecting the rest of stock exchange like banks who lent to it.
Their model was build a solar park, borrow more money build another, etc.etc ..borrowing is E9.4bn* with no white knight deal likely.
ohh it's big in the US as well
"The renewable energy firm, which is constructing several large-scale solar power projects in the U.S. and has received at least $2.7 billion in federal loan guarantees since 2010"
*" full Abengoa bankruptcy stands at about $21.4 billion, according to Reuters "

Ah just noticed the title :abengoa-is-a-tale-of-complexity-opacity-and-gullibility

For a company that makes money turning sunlight into electricity, Abengoa shows a troglodytic aversion to transparency -- as investors are now finding out to their cost.
Who's next ?

The BBC CCS axing story is actually here ...see Paul Homewood's article also

@Johanna Yeh you're right that 25C nighttime temp is a huge huge difference to other days of the month
The entire week has been like 7C, but other weather regional stations also appeared to have quite a warm night tjheir peak temperatures varied but often around 9am.
another useful page shows the min temps for the month November 2015

FFS I just switched radio stn to get away from Climate loony Dr Karl, but BBC World Service is running a Climate special - Warming in the Philippines "Of course one cannot draw conclusions from a" single weather event"...(but they do anyway in the next breath) "but we are seeing more and more of these type of events"

@Clipe isn't the new photogenic PM of Canada's name pronounced PM Hair-doo ?

@Johanna I just checked Twitter search : Canberra BOM

@BOM_ACT 6h6 hours ago
The atmosphere is angry! warmest night in 9 yrs @ 24C, wind gusts to 80km/h. Conditions moderating through the day.
Strangely that pages gives the predicted temp max for today Thu as 22C, yet the observation page shows today's max was 24.4C at 6.04am, yet that too is contradicted by the hour by hour observations page shows warmer temps earlier (before sunrise maybe ?) temp was around 24C all night then rose at 4am to peak at 25C at 4.30am
That temp station is at the AIRPORT

@Greensand Yep the report is on BBCr5 now, what concerned me was the certainty about Extreme Weather
I checked the WMO website and found no news science confirmed link, so that was the BBC overstating the WMO's hypebole.

I see the WMO has an article by Leo Hickman with a nice photo of Oreskes . It seems WMO is pretty much a Guardianista alarmist org
- on WMO front page is an headline "WMO Prioritizes Gender Equality"

Now 2.40am R5 called an alarmist US Tim Barnett of Scripps who is doing all the Paris hype talk and shouting big industry funded "deniers" etc....Now he's claiming methane is pouring out the tundra (That Rhod Sharpe nightime show on weekdays is actually broadcast from the US and often has alarmists on)

Why is Natalie Bennett in the first 20s of BBCr5 2am news talking about the un-cuts of the budget ?
as the first politician quoted ?

In the 1950s, American politicians on the U.S. House Committee on unAmerican Activities saw a Communist hiding behind every tree.

Much like the premier of Canada’s largest province today sees a racist hiding behind every tree.

For Wynne, it’s not enough that she’s right and you’re wrong. It’s that she’s right and you’re evil.

Has anybody else watched the BBC's latest propaganda effort for Paris, "COP21: Why two degrees matters."?

BBC environment correspondent Matt McGrath assesses the significance of that figure, and why it is seen as the gateway to dangerous warming.

With this hellfire and damnation assessment, the BBC is trashing its reputation.
