Mike Haseler on Scottish Sceptic carries out a complex mathematical assessment of when he expects the Met Office to be able to justly claim they can forecast climate a century hence. Not this century.
Julian Simon - the one who won the Simon-Ehrlich bet and has been proven essentially right in his optimism about human progress when Ehrlich's doomsaying has been absolutely wrong in every possible way. So obviously, seeing the needs of those who control "practical politics" and don't want progress, Ehrlich got the "genius" grants and Simon didn't.

There is a perfect storm developing then in the European banking sector.

First, there is the increasing likelihood that the ECB will unleash a new round of asset purchases from the banks to flood them with the liquidity they need to buy up their respective national governments’ sovereign bonds and so hold bond yields down.

Second, there is a Eurozone-wide regulatory initiative to recapitalize the banks, likely following on from the results of the ECB’s bank stress tests. Third, there is an increasing chance of a deep stock market correction happening this summer. All three, taken collectively, could trigger a crisis of confidence in the banking sector. An insolvency crisis too should not be ruled out in the event of some large banks failing to recover from derivatives markets exposures in an increasingly volatile currency, interest rate, and stock-market environment.

Austria is getting pissed off at Germany destabilising the grid by dumping intermittent windmill power on them (via Poland and the Czechs who are already pissed at them).

Instructive bearing in mind that the SNP have promised us any English government will not only want our windmill power but will keep subsidising it after separation and supply us with mittent power whenever the wind doesn't blow,
