Climate Common Sense is not a sceptical site but a non-believer's site .Global warming and cooling are natural phenomena and carbon dioxide is a lovely gas vital to plant growth. Global Warming has stopped and Climate Change ( I call it Weather) is the new manufactured bogeyman. This website will present a realist view on the Climate Change debate.

THE NSW government has called on Julia Gillard to immediately dump incentives for households that install rooftop solar panels, saying federal Labor's green scheme is too expensive.
Despite Climate Change Minister Greg Combet having scaled back subsidies in the scheme to quell anger over rocketing electricity prices, the NSW pricing watchdog yesterday confirmed that the federal government's renewable energy target - which requires 20 per cent of electricity to be produced from renewable energy sources by 2020 - would be responsible for six percentage points of a 17 per cent increase in power bills from July 1.
NSW Energy Minister Chris Hartcher seized on the price hike to demand that Canberra's "very costly" renewable energy schemes be dismantled.
"The Prime Minister may look good when she makes the announcement, but at the end of the day someone has to pay, and it's the electricity customers of NSW who are paying," Mr Hartcher said yesterday.
As reality bites more and more of these silly green power schemes will be given the axe as voters "feel-good" becomes "feel-bad" when the astronomical power bill arrives.
