Weather and Climate

If even "climatologists" admit that global weather has more or less stabilized for the past thirty years or so, what then? Ht the Corner.

Also from National Review: some details on the story Anthony Watts has been covering: scientists attempt to get raw data on surface temperature readings, but they are refused. Either they cannot be trusted to be politically correct, or the actual data has disappeared somehow, to be replaced by "homogenized" data--the way intelligence information in Iraq was "homogenized" in 2002. Since this was picked up by Instapundit, it may be becoming at least a bit more mainstream. Stephen McIntyre and Roger Pielke Jr. both figure in this story.

Vaclav Klaus, the President of the Czech Republic, can be counted on to pooh-pooh the alarmists, and now he says mayn bright people are joining him. Unfortunately, he also says that as a political movement, climate alarmism is growing, not diminishing--despite the evidence.
