WSJ on swelling climate skepticism

These days, there are relatively many articles that are not afraid to point out facts that disagree with what was once called the "consensus". But I think that Kimberley Strassel did a very good job in her
The Climate Change Climate Change (click)
and summarized a lot of reasons and symptoms underlying the recent increase of climate skepticism across the world. Recommended for a big picture concerning the sociology of the debate.

All 40 comments below her article seem to be nice and skeptical, so I apologize to her in advance if the first nasty and alarmist comments will be written by readers who were sent over there from The Reference Frame. ;-)

If you want a longer and more complex reading, see the recent 98-page skeptical document prepared by the National Center for Environmental Economics for EPA. It summarizes a lot of "skeptical" findings from recent years and urges EPA to begin to behave scientifically again. (Hat tip: Gavin Schmidt.)

C-SPAN: Live: the U.S. Congress discusses and prepares to vote on the insane climate bill. The test vote has narrowly passed. These proceedings are a complete joke.

At 4:06 pm D.C. Daylight Saving Time, it turned out that no one owns those 300 extra pages of the bill that they are voting about - and maybe already approved. ;-) After Joe Barton asked, a female Democratic Big Cheese explained that she was not aware of any rules that the bill voted about must actually exist on the paper. :-)

Hundreds of Democrats don't even need to see the document: they're ready to raise their hand in favor of any method to throw trillions into the toilet. What a banana republic the U.S. are becoming.
