It's OK George, it's just the green ones.

There’s been a lot of misleading nonsense in parts of the UK press about energy bills. The Mail, in particular, have reprinted numbers which the Press Complaints Commission had already forced them to correct, then been forced to correct them again, then printed them again. Honestly. I mean, not honestly, completely dishonestly and with intent to mislead, I would imagine, but they really did that.

Fracking can help to slow global warming admit UN scientists... and so can nuclear power

So what exactly did the new report (IPCC AR5 WG3 SPM) say about fracking? You’ll never guess.

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.

The Telegraph is yet again trying to pretend that Noel Edmonds’ anti-wind lobby, the cosmically ordered Renewable Energy Foundation, is a reliable source of data. In case you don’t remember, this is the organisation which produces nonsensical made-up ‘reports’ attacking wind power, whilst claiming on their home page to be in the business of promoting renewable energy.<--break->
