This is an amazing visualizations by showing global temperatures from 1850 to today, and different pathways we might take in the future. This definitely wins the award for best warming stripes in my book!

Coal plants in India – as in the rest of the world – are running around 50%, per my article.

To be completely clear, what I am objecting to is the idea that the difference is 75%. Roughly: 400 + 13 = 413 400 + 55 = 455 One of these numbers is not 75% lower than the other. It's only 9%.

Is this the best plain-speaking quote ever formally issued to media by a politician? Quite possibly. (h/t )

We ( and I) were clear that this was a poor idea when we gave evidence to the DfT last year. We had a lot of air time but evidence buried in Annex I!

Thanks Stepan! We designed it to also work on mobile – some others already said it worked well for them – but let us know if you have problems.

Inspirativní příběh proměny využití zdrojů elektřiny ve Velké Británii za uplynulých deset let v úchvatném podání datových novinářů . Inspirace pro ? .) P. S. Na mobilu jsem to nezkoušel.

I'm not arguing against this idea, I'm arguing against the idea that "75% emission saving" is a meaningful statistic. It is clearly not.

"pre-combustion footprint". That's a new one on me. Are there also pre-atmospheric greenhouse gases?

Uh, yeah so UK shale *could* have emissions 75% lower than imported LNG… …just as long as you don't burn it. Got it!

This is not my Mary Whitehouse moment. I don’t give two hoots if Johnson has 56 kids. What I care about is why can’t he be honest about something so simple? As a judge ruled re his extramarital child in 2013 - this is a public interest matter when judging fitness for high office

Good to see Raab out of the leadership race. He seemed to me the most actively dangerous candidate, and the most eager to tap the dark energy of populism. His contempt for parliamentary democracy and snarling speeches about national humiliation suggested a very dark premiership.
