'First, the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide are dominant over the climatic effects and are overwhelmingly beneficial. Second, the climatic effects observed in the real world are much less damaging than the effects predicted by the climate models, and have also been frequently beneficial.'

UK Schools' Low Carbon Day - Still Spooky

The spookily anonymous website for 'Schools' Low Carbon Day' has removed the claim that 'Mothers Against Climate Change' is a registered charity. A modest gesture towards acknowledging reality, but problems remain: despite adding a copyright notice of their own in a footer, they link without thanks, and without attribution to the materials of others. More sleuthing required! Given that the only explicit links I can find on their site are to two companies involved in the modern, yet somehow medieval, industries hinged on carbon and 'green energy' indulgences, I suspect that 'educational' materials provided by such companies as EDF are possibles.

However, I have already dithered too much about this site, after being somewhat taken aback by my late realisation of how suspicious it looks. I still don't know how it was created, who paid for it, nor who, bar one (Erica), the 'Mothers' are, nor have I seen any evidence to support the '1,600 schools registered' claim.

I am going to return to my notes, at long last, rebutting some of their assertions. If the England game in SA is really dire, I'd expect to get finished this afternoon. Failing that, tomorrow morning.

  1. I'm reasonably sure that all websites operated by UK companies are required to have contact details (as in a mailing address for an office) Sorry, can't substantiate this.
