At last the government seems to have got with the program:

Green Light: Britain’s Dash For Shale Gas

Date: 30/11/12
Oliver Wright, The Independent

More than 60 per cent of the British countryside could be exploited for shale gas, government documents show, as ministers prepare to give the go-ahead for developing the country’s most significant new energy source since North Sea oil.

Fourteen Is the New Fifteen!

Interesting example of global temperature revisionism here.

Thanks Messenger and lapogus. I found Mike's report at the SCEF site. It was a source of dismay for me about the dreadfully low intellectual/scientific level of the meeting, but we are fortunate that Mike went there to make some good points and report back to a wider world than the one those people so sadly inhabit. I think the development movement may have been completely wrecked by the environmental one now, and may well go down with them as their ship sinks. I do hope it sinks soon - we surely, rich and poor nations both, can't afford much more of the harm they are bringing.

The 100 year anniverary of Piltdown Man is coming up (18 Dec) . Radio 4 had an interesting 'Making History' discussing the hoax.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01p0fpn

The Piltdown section begins at 8.34. A discussion of the motives and the lack of debunking, starts 17.40
It 'served a political and ideological purpose' of course science wouldnt be so easily swayed today. -Would it.

Hi John,

iirc Mike Hasler planned to go along - assume he will post a summary at SCEF.

John Shade:
Mike Haseler has the Climate Justice meeting report at SCEF. Sounds pretty uneventful..

Did anyone reading this go to the Climate Justice meeting in Edinburgh on 28th November? Or does anyone know of a report about the meeting?

Damian Carrington is not pleased.

David Cameron has blocked the appointment of David Kennedy, chief executive of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), as the new permanent secretary of the department of energy and climate change. Perhaps that seems undramatic to you, just a bit of Whitehall gossip. Think again: this is the political equivalent of a mafia hit and Kennedy got whacked.
