I'm sure some of you have seen this.  The charlatans sure do use some creative tactics.

Full of misrepresentations and distortions, as well as some intriguing predictions by some, um, less credible folks.  I can't tackle this, but hopefully someone else could address this latest barrage of misinformation.

Someone should also contact Latif, Keenlyside, Tsonis and Swanson and Overland, because IIRC, their work and statements have been misrepresented and/or distorted.

P Gosselin: "James (Delingpole) is one of the good guys..."

And Delingpole has no scientific or even technical credibility of any sort. One can probably also question his journalistic credibility.

I assume the Telegraph 'employs' him because he is 'outrageous' and sells copy.

Well I have just posted a comment there.

Then noticed it is moderated, so the comment may never appear!?

For the record (in case it isn't published) I replied to Dirks comment with this:

"Dirk, climate change isn’t an event, it is a trend that would cause a range of possible events.
So you have created a scenario that you know is un-achievable, or rather loaded the dice/results/game etc.

Using your logic, you would be expecting traffic control staff to predict every accident and breakdown, based on a few CCTV images of a busier than normal road. That of course is impossible, but they might be able to suggest accidents to be more likely, although no accidents may actually happen."

I think I'll take a stab at refuting this one.  I see it as a two-pronged approach:

1) Claims of cooling are kind of stupid

2) Many of the scientists on the list aren't even predicting global cooling
