Booker skewers Monbiot in his column today:
Although The Guardian’s George Monbiot waxes famously excitable over anything he can blame on global warming, he got carried away even more than usual last week. As Britain suffered from blizzards and a deep freeze, he noted a recent spike in temperatures in the Arctic, taking them up to 63F (35C) above average. “This is more than just a temperature anomaly,” he tweeted, “it is an off-the-scale event. Why is the Arctic meltdown not headline news in every paper?”

But, as usual, Delingpole will fool no decent right-minded people with his libertarian ordure. Those of us who care about the planet and our children’s future will continue to ignore the evidence and remain true to our liberal values.
At first, when yesterday’s news broke that there had been…
