Re: One for the Warmlist

James Delingpole came up with a pretty good riposte to the Guardian article by Nafeez Ahmed a few days ago, pointing out that Ahmed has a previous track record in acting as an apologist for Islamic terrorism and having a tendency to pin the blame mainly on the West for whatever they do:

Delingpole now works for "Breitbart London", a new London branch of the US based Breitbart conservative news website (I don't know if they actually have a physical office in London). For people wondering why Delingpole left his job at the much higher profile Daily Telegraph, I believe he gets paid more money by Breitbart and he also had a couple of grievances with the Telegraph management. The grievances were that the Telegraph management seemed to be unimpressed by the occasional awards for blogging that he won, and they were also putting him under some pressure to tone down the anti-Green rhetoric in his blog posts.

Re: One for the Warmlist

I noticed another one for the warmlist myself today. This one is 'sea level plunge', as opposed to the far more well-known sea level rise, and it was unearthed as an old BBC news story from 1999 by the "Not a lot of people know that" blog.

The writer of the BBC article turns out to be Damian Carrington, so Carrington must have worked for the BBC back in the 1990s. With both sea level rise and sea level drop going on at the same time, you could pretty much account for any change in sea level you wanted.

Re: One for the Warmlist

I just noticed another one for the global warming list. This one is about the red hair gene in Scotland possibly dying out as the climate becomes sunnier:
