In a wide ranging summary of the state of play on the ground, Ed Darrell at Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub kindly links back.
It’s worth a read. For instance:
Remember the pathetic, disgusting attempt to derail the climate talks in Durban, just a few days ago? The “climate skeptics”™ dumped a bunch more private e-mails from the scientists who work on climate. (Stolen e-mails, here; be prepared to be bored, with no smoking guns, no cold guns, no guns at all.)
Unless one thinks the self-proclaimed skeptics are James Bond nemesis enough to actually hope for the end of the world (as opposed to just being monumentally, stupidly misled), their train still can’t get back on the tracks. Revealing that someone among them has stolen more e-mails than previously known, didn’t help.
Ed goes on to list six ways in which the Durban talks were a disaster for the denialists. It is a cheering read, so be of good cheer for the holidays, y’all, eh?
