From EU Referendum we get the news that in a new scientific paper, the Russian head of the Space Research Laboratory of the Pulkovo Observatory, Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov, is telling us not to be concerned about "catastrophic global warming". What we should be worried out, he warns, is a deep temperature drop.
But we are in the middle of the run up to the Copenhagen conference. So all our political classes are too focussed on imagined warming, that they just do not have the time to deal with a very real, potentially devastating problem. Instead we have snake oil salesmen accusing our cattle of conjuring up green house gasses out of thin air (counterpoint here).
