    New study suggests that global warming induced cold may cause some people to shrink.



    Niagara Falls comes to frozen halt AGAIN as subfreezing temperatures freeze water | Mail Online

    Niagara Falls Freezes Over – Again | Watts Up With That?
    Niagara Falls has frozen over many times in the past. I have been there. The city is not my favourite plce; too touristy now and it was much more pleasant years ago. Bit, it is just twenty miles from Niagara-on-the-Lake where the Shaw festival is hld and a beautiful Parkway drive along the Niagara River between.

    The Falls has a couple of interesting exibitions.

    I enjoy the Shw Festival and seing plays by the "Scottish" Playwright, Shaw. (For the idiot. Earthling).

    "A breathless journalist at Thompson Reuters describes the possible revival of the market back to 30% below the peak as “astounding”:

    "Emil Dimantchev, analyst at Thomson Reuters Point Carbon, anticipates that such significant growth will be driven by “expectations that after imminent backloading is implemented early in 2014, EUA prices could rise to €7.5/t, increasing over-the-counter and exchange traded liquidity. This would lead to an astounding increase in value, up by more than two thirds to €61bn ($US84bn) from €36bn ($US49bn) in 2013”. –BusinessSpectator"

    Let’s not forget this soaring revival is only due to Government decree. The EU voted to simply hold back some promised carbon credits. They cornered the market from the start. There is nothing “free” about this fixed market, and the people who will pay (consumers and taxpayers, us) don’t get a choice. "

    Zombie carbon market falls 60%, revived by EU decree – media spins “soaring success” « JoNova

    A great read. She also links to Bloomberg quote:

    "Governments will cut the supply of new carbon permits by 53% in an effort to bring it closer to balance with demand, and to ensure higher prices. ...."

    What a clusterfornicate.
    The carbon market needs to be reformed for long. There were far too many certificates handed out at the beginning. => 'Deeper, faster' carbon market reform

    Reuters

    Four European environment ministers on Tuesday urged the bloc to reform the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) sooner than the 2021 start currently proposed, a move that could propel carbon prices higher in the near term. In January, the European Commission proposed a so-called market stability reserve for the ETS to help drive up prices to encourage more investment in low-carbon technologies and meet long-term emission targets.

    The measure follows a shorter-term backloading plan and is aimed at enabling the ETS to adjust better to economic changes by creating a buffer of carbon permits from 2021 that would hold or release permits depending on market balance.

    At near 7 euros, carbon is well below the 30 euro levels hit in 2008 because rigid rules meant governments handed out too many permits, creating a surplus of more than 2 billion.

    "These proposals are also to be welcomed in principle. Germany is of the opinion that a sustained strengthening of the ETS is needed and we need it earlier than 2021," German Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks said.

    Her counterparts from Britain, Denmark and Sweden made similar calls during a European Union meeting in Brussels, in the first ministerial discussion of the proposal.

    The ministers were also among a larger coalition of 13 environment ministers from mainly western member states to sign a more general statement saying the ETS "continues to require urgent and significant strengthening".

    The 13 states would still need additional support to reach a qualified majority of member states and European Parliament needed to enact the measure in a legislative process expected to take around two years.

I’ve been sitting on this over a week, and Donna Laframboise reports that the cat is out of the bag now, along with the skeptic response to Bob Ward, who she labels a “rat-snake” for his intolerance."



    Poor stupid Bob, he cant even get the facts straight and he gets his butt kicked by a sweet little lady.

    Donna wrote a book claiming the IPCC was a spoiled teenager, and a few hundred climate change deniers declared her an immortal genius on the spot.

    She has been dining out on her fifteen minutes ever since.

    Before all the little people showed up?


    I know it's just anecdotal, but do you know anyone that has shrank from global warming induced cold? I mean you know a lot of people and all.
