U.N. Climate Chief Resigns.
The sharp-tongued U.N. official who shepherded troubled climate talks for nearly four years announced his resignation Thursday, leaving an uncertain path to a new treaty on global warming.
Exhausted and frustrated by unrelenting bickering between rich and poor countries, Yvo de Boer said he will step down July 1 to work in business and academia.
With no obvious successor in sight, fears were voiced that whoever follows will be far less forceful than the skilled former civil servant from the Netherlands.
……De Boer made the announcement just two months after a disappointing summit in Copenhagen that ended with a nonbinding accord brokered by President Barack Obama promising emissions cuts and immediate financing for poor countries—but even that failed to win consensus agreement.
In an AP interview last month, de Boer acknowledged that the summit left him deeply disheartened. “After Copenhagen I was very depressed. I was depressed for a few weeks,” he said.
But within days he was holding private talks to patch over bitter accusations between Britain and China, and was publicly calling on all sides to stop slinging mud about responsibility for Copenhagen’s breakdown.
Bottom line: The whole “man-made” aspect of any climate change was debunked long before that Copenhagen farce. de Boer knows the jig is up. That’s enough to depress any nutbag in the “global warming” cult.

‘Climatologist’ Roseanne D’Arrigo spoke about the necessity to “cherry-pick” trees used in tree-ring studies.
One paleoclimatologist called Jan Esper has said you can throw away the bits that don’t give you the right answer – and it’s an advantage ‘unique to climatalogy’. Yes, they say it, and seem to believe it.

No kidding. It’s not like anyone with a couple of firing neurons believed this shit, anyway.
The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.
Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.
Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.
The final nail in the coffin of the “man-made climate change/”global warming” hoax.
