Tall Bloke gives an airing to somebody who is sure that the greenhouse effect is real - see http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/tim-folkerts-simple-argument-s... ... is worth reading - and thinking about. However, another angle can be viewed at www.tech-know-group.com/papers/IR-absorption_updated.pdf Likewise, the 'Left of Centre' web site of Geoff Chambers, the political fence where most people seem to sit, has some amusing posts and is always worth a look at - go to http://geoffchambers.wordpress.com/2012/12/03/shale-gas-and-watermelons/ ... which is all about the Greens against fracking and shale gas, aligned with the steel industry in France. The steel furnaces require cheap energy - not much chance of that with the unions making hay with environmentalists. Geoff asks what is a French steel company doing in Ohio? - where fracking has produced lots of cheap gas.

That is not all as there is a growing  band of scientists in Russia, Sweden, Denmark, the German speaking world, France, the UK and the Netherlands that consider CAGW has passed it's sell by date - see http://notrickszone.com/2012/12/07/dr-hans-labohm-on-scepticism-in-europ...
