    I’m not a fan of Schmidt. But at first I thought this encouraging.

    But then I read:-
    “It seems to me that the time has come that one of our top scientific organisations should scrutinise, under the microscope, the work of the IPCC, in a critical and realistical way,…”

    And realised that he’s only proposing another whitewash, based on the pioneering work of Oxburgh, Rees and the rest..

    What we really need is a full Tribunal of Inquiry under a senior judge. Even that would be likely to fail to properly look at the facts and allow ‘nasty deniers’ to make their case.

    Looking at the German original is even more discouraging. As well as talking (in effect) about ‘peak oil, coal and gas’ and the long term need to switch to nuclear, solar and wind; Schmidt curiously ignores the German move back towards coal & lignite.

    He also seems to think we should have a EU Common Energy Policy.

    Hmmmm. I’d rather not, thanks Helmut!

    I saw this claim about the rise in price of maize (corn) on the WUWT wesite. One of the comments referred to this in Spiegel about the E10 fuel which contains the ethanol at 10% of the content. I also saw this fuel in France last week.

    Perhaps for further inclusion in Five Star blogging links…UN Watch is a fine organisation which never bowed the knee to Gaddafi when others did. Nor has it bowed its knee to any haters of Israel in The UN.

    Plus a thought on Charlie Sheen getting sacked from a top US sitcom (while still being compotent in his job when he turns up) while William Hague is still not sacked as Foreign Secretary despite overwhelming evidence that he just is not up to this vital job at this vital time.
