Transferrable skills allow you to adapt to a changing job market

The Telegraph and the Mail have both told MPs that they think climate change is man-made.

If this is an April Fool’s joke, I’m not amused, but assuming it’s real, job done, that’s the end of mainstream media denial.

Is there any kind of weather climate change DOESN’T cause?

more of that wet stuff

Funny how environmental issues can rocket to the top of the news agenda when UK property prices might be affected. Sorry, that probably came across as slightly cynical, but that’s been the pervading atmosphere in the flooding stories for most of the last month.

Let's do the Time warp again!

Thanks to petepassword for this Time Magazine spoof cover

So why did David Rose put a forgery of a Time Magazine cover in the Mail on Sunday? Well, the simple answer is that there weren't any real Time covers which supported his point, otherwise I'm sure he would have used one of them. His point was, to quote Michael Crichton, "in the 1970′s (sic) all the climate scientists believed an ice age was coming.”

The subtext being that climate scientists are slightly hysterical doom-mongers who were wrong then and so can be wrong now. I'm sure you can guess who really has the monopoly on wrongness in this debate.

Dear Mail on Sunday, Time is not on your side

Once in a while, roughly every month or two, Daily Mail journalist David Rose likes to focus his laser-like mind on the twisting swindlers of the so-called scientific community, and write a big exposé of the Great Climate Hoax. He's an expert on hoaxes, and so would never be caught out by one himself. You would think.

On a clear day you can see the future

Borisconi and his chief climate advisor

Borisconi's leadership campaign has struck again, and the Telegraph's somewhat battered reputation for science reporting is again the first casualty.
