  • Oct 31 2012: For the climate sceptics I would like to point you to an amazing talk here on TED called Time-lapse proof of extreme ice loss by James Balog. The former climate sceptic and National Geographic photographer undertook an extreme ice survey and made a fascinating documentary called Chasing Ice.

    I personally believe AGW is real but I don't think you can say one storm is proof of global warming but is consistent to an emerging trend. However I do think it's a wake up call for many Americans who burn a quarter of the world's oil supply. Will renewable stocks go up when the New York Stock Exchange reopens today?
