Bye bye Euro?

Funds flee Greece as Germany warns of "fatal" eurozone crisis

Germany has triggered a near-panic flight from southern European debt markets by warning that there will be no EU bail-outs, even though it fears the region's economic crisis has turned dangerous and could prove "fatal" for the entire eurozone.

I'm not reponsible for any cleaning bills as a result of you reading this.

Things I'm thinking about.

Is the whole AGW scam a pyramid sales scheme that's now finally run out of money?

"Sell AGW, get a grant, get people to reference your "peer-reviewed" doc so they get a grant." rinse and repeat.

Unbeleivably one-sided AlJaBeebya Article.

I thought he might mention the grant industry is distorting "science", but no!

Update

UN climate panel blunders again over Himalayan glaciers

The chairman of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has used bogus claims that Himalayan glaciers were melting to win grants worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Rajendra Pachauri's Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), based in New Delhi, was awarded up to £310,000 by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the lion's share of a £2.5m EU grant funded by European taxpayers.

It means that EU taxpayers are funding research into a scientific claim about glaciers that any ice researcher should immediately recognise as bogus. The revelation comes just a week after The Sunday Times highlighted serious scientific flaws in the IPCC's 2007 benchmark report on the likely impacts of global warming.

The IPCC had warned that climate change was likely to melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 - an idea considered ludicrous by most glaciologists. Last week a humbled IPCC retracted that claim and corrected its report.
Background

Since then, however, The Sunday Times has discovered that the same bogus claim has been cited in grant applications for TERI.

The BBC just get worse! No mention of ClimateGate and other Pachauri fraud revelations.
