Many experts are skeptical about the work of the Copenhagen summit, particularly as the fallout from Climategate continues to roil the community. Patrick Michaels, a senior fellow at the CATO Institute  says that scientists who advocate global warming are interpreting data in a way that will let them influence policy.


A group of sceptics is meeting in the Danish capital to counterbalance the main event.

Professor Cliff Ollier, a Professor of Geology from the University of Western Australia who focuses on ice caps and glaciers, came to Copenhagen to have his say on the connection between glaciers and the rising sea level.
The whole mechanism of glacial flow has nothing to do with the rising temperature or carbon dioxide,” says the professor.

Lord Christopher Monckton is yet another one of the sceptics. He has been talking to the delegates to think again about the facts surrounding climate change.
What I am already doing is talking to individual delegations here in Copenhagen and saying to them: Look, whatever pressure you are under from your environmental groups and your younger people and your governments, pay heed to the science and not the propaganda, except that there is no climate problem caused by humankind and go home without any agreement,” stresses Monckton. “In particular, don’t you dare set up a world government or anything like it and don’t you dare to impose worldwide rationing and taxing in trading, because that would amount to the biggest tax in human history and we do not want that,” he says.

Earlier, RT spoke to one of the sceptics, Craig Rucker, from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow. He outlined the claims put forward by those who say global warming is a natural phenomenon, not caused by man.
We are asking for a complete investigation into the Climategate issue,” Rucker said.

While UN officials are optimistic about the summit, the critics there say they want more science – and less politics.

It is so odd having to depend upon Russia Today for the most recent news; if you tried the Beeb yesterday ( day of Danish Text ) you might have thought Copenhagen was not happening ( oh and also except for Steve Wright on R2 who clearly had not got the message with his constant stream of AGW fucking factoids.

It certainly is, Banned, no fuss, no lies, just straight interviews with no interrupting and most definitely no ambushes for the interviewee! They would have tried to massacre him on the BBC!! ;)

It was exactly the same in America during all the "Tea Parties" where again the only accurate and unbiased coverage came from RT.

Great videos, Spidie.

It's refreshing to hear the views of a sceptic (Michaels) without simultaneously having a warmist fanatic shout him down!

Monckton was on the Alex Jones show on Monday. He said the Copenhagen bureaucrats denied the existence of the treaty until he threatened them!

More science and less politics. That would be nice but unlikely. So called scientists have been very expensively bought off.

Nice one Spidey.

Thanks, INCOMING!!!!!!! :)

If anyone ever doubted that, OR, Climategate should have made it crystal clear to them. ;)

Thanks, Guest, I find myself watching RT, more and more to get the straight, unbiased story.

And thanks for the link - fortunately for us, Lord Monckton is prepared to stand up to them and in a position to be able to threaten them.

Hi Spider, this is a very interesting post!  You have great info and video's on here.  I think you all would be interested in one I just watched at Odie's Place.  It's on YouTube Too!

I guess they won't be having this gentleman as a guest speaker in
Nopenhagen, but they SHOULD!  Happy's been a very relaxing week for me  :*

I really like RT as well.  I can watch it on the "telly" early in the morning on the smaller tv stations out here.  

Barking Spider said...

Now that I've watched again, I'm going to link on my blog side bar, with a very special picture, that when clicks, brings ppl here!

Barking Spider said...

That's great, Bunni, thanks for the link. :)

I've just watched and re-posted the video over at Odie's place - excellent find! ;)

Enjoy the rest of the week - only tomorrow left, might as well stay at home and play with the computer. :-D

I've started watching it on satellite TV over here and I've also subscribed and friended at their You Tube channel.
