First, their are currently no 'skeptics' on AGW. There are about a few hundred climatologists exploring if they can find any fact to base skepticism on but so far they have not published any papers skeptical of AGW in the scientific sense of having a competing explanation for the data.

Second, he did not make an 'attack' on 'skeptics' or even the scientific community. "in his most outspoken attack yet on the world's failure to tackle global warming," is about the failure of the politicians to address the facts and act in accordance with their responsibilities.

imbecile. no-one with a brain of his own actually thinks it is getting hotter any more, mainly because it isn't getting hotter. having Charlie on your side is a bit like saying L Ron Hubbard supports you.

Au contraire.

Science says that it is getting hotter (the global surface temperature) even if there is a flattening of METEROLOGY data in one analysis.

If you have sufficient coverage of polar regions (a flaw in the HADCRUT analysis) you would find that the last decade of AIR temperature is still warming, though not as fast.

http://www.skepticalscience.com/print.php...

This is because the transfer of heat from the oceans (where sunlight is absorbed) is complicated by an upwelling of cooler water (La-NIna)

But 97% of the global surface is OCEAN which absorbs about 90% of the total warming (due to large surface and high thermal mass) which shows that warming of the SURFACE (AGW) rather than just the air at 2 meters above the land (meterology data) continues unabated.

I didn't say that Charles supported me. In fact, I never comment on the politics, and THAT is what HE commented on.

Your mistakes and misreadings show that you neither know the science or even reasoned thought. You should try to listen more and comment less.

Correction: "But 97% of the global surface is OCEAN" should was intented to be "But 97% of the global surface thermal mass is OCEAN AND LAND"

My English if just fine, thank you very much. But you are apparently impervious to facts, science, references, or reason. The inability to read or think is certainly a worse problem for you than grammar is for me.

Al Gore:

Yesterday, for the first time in human history, concentrations of carbon dioxide, the primary global warming pollutant, hit 400 parts per million in our planet's atmosphere. This number is a reminder that for the last 150 years -- and especially over the last several decades -- we have been recklessly polluting the protective sheath of atmosphere that surrounds the Earth and protects the conditions that have fostered the flourishing of our civilization. We are altering the composition of our atmosphere at an unprecedented rate. Indeed, every single day we pour an additional 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the sky as if it were an open sewer. As the distinguished climate scientist Jim Hansen has calculated, the accumulated manmade global warming pollution in the atmosphere now traps enough extra heat energy each day to equal the energy that would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-scale atomic bombs exploding every single day. It's a big planet -- but that is a LOT of energy. And it is having a destructive effect.

Now, more than ever before, we are reaping the consequences of our recklessness. From Superstorm Sandy which crippled New York City and large areas of New Jersey, to a drought which parched more than half of our nation; from a flood that inundated large swaths of Australia to rising seas affecting millions around the world, the reality of the climate crisis is upon us.

Our food systems, our cities, our people and our very way of life developed within a stable range of climatic conditions on Earth. Without immediate and decisive action, these favorable conditions on Earth could become a memory if we continue to make the climate crisis worse day after day after day.

With any great challenge comes great opportunity. We have the rare privilege to rise to an occasion of global magnitude. To do so, our communities, our businesses, our universities, and our governments need to work in harmony to stop the climate crisis. We must summon the very best of the human spirit and draw on our courage, our ingenuity, our intellect, and our determination to confront this crisis. Make no mistake, this crisis will demand no less than our very best. I am optimistic because we have risen to meet the greatest challenges of our past.

So please, take this day and the milestone it represents to reflect on the fragility of our civilization and and the planetary ecosystem on which it depends. Rededicate yourself to the task of saving our future. Talk to your neighbors, call your legislator, let your voice be heard. We must take immediate action to solve this crisis. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year. Now.

this is a ploy to fleece the brits. money down the tubes. was global warming now climate change. billions gone missing. if the nonchalant classes were so concerned with climate change they would stop using air travel.

about time that fat fraud shut his mouth. he is nothing but a greasy Baptist tub thumper of the worst sort. Not a single ONE of his prophecies has come true.

Yes, because it's true:

Sergeant Carl James Boyd demonstrates how the Norwegian-designed Black Hornet Nano will be used for surveillance operations in Afghanistan.

The drones can fly around corners and obstacles to identify potential hidden dangers, the Ministry of Defence has said. It features a tiny camera and relays video and still images to a handheld control terminal.

It measures about 10cm by 2.5cm (4in by 1in) and weighs 16g (0.6oz).

I know these things exist, because Al Gore said that unless you wear tight pants at all times, one could easily fly to Uranus.
