'Climategate' fallout begins

Senator Inhofe: Call for Investigation on "Climategate".

Lord Lawson: Calls for public inquiry into UEA global warming data 'manipulation'.

Not such a bad idea. We need this whole business out in the open. On the other hand the depressing thought occurs that 'Public Enquiry' and 'Whitewash' are oftentimes synonymous.

My day was cheered up by the news item about seven activists who occupied the office of Jim Prentice, Canada's Environment Minister. The actoivists declared they would not leave unless Canada signed up to all the Copenhagen protocols. The Ministers response? He had his staff give the activists coffee and took care of business elsewhere without promising anything. “We won’t be changing our target as a result of an office occupation,” said Mr. Prentice’s spokesman, Bill Rodgers.
Police arrested the activists early this evening. The seven protesters face criminial mischief charges and will appear in court next month.

Well done that man.
