European backlash against carbon regulation

Several news.

Günther Verheugen, the EU industry commissioner, considers car industry more important than carbon regulation.

The British government tries to escape from Tony Blair's unrealistic EU climate pledges.

Lithuania becomes the seventh post-socialist member of the EU that sues the regulators because of the carbon caps. Malta will probably become the eighth player.

Japan's CO2 emissions continue to rise above the 1990 levels.

Copper: we won't run out of it. And it is unclear whether it will become cheaper or more expensive.

Freeman Dyson: new climate and other heresies at edge.org.

Thanks to Benny Peiser!
