The Science is Settled

Reason number one why there is debate on "climate change".
When asked to see the data and methodologies used by the UK's National Weather Service in order to verify the results, the answer was no, you might find something wrong with what we did.
When asked by Warwick Hughes for this data, Dr. Jones famously replied:

Even if WMO agrees, I will still not pass on the data. We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it.

When one side refuses to allow independent testing of scientific results, it ceases to be science.

U.S. consumers should pay for part of Chinese greenhouse-gas emissions - Gary Locke

Not sure why I am so surprised by this.
With the U.S. secretaries of energy and commerce in China this week, much of the attention focused on the standoff over emissions reductions or small breakthroughs in clean-tech cooperation.
But yesterday, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said something amazing—U.S. consumers should pay for part of Chinese greenhouse-gas emissions. From Reuters:

“It’s important that those who consume the products being made all around the world to the benefit of America — and it’s our own consumption activity that’s causing the emission of greenhouse gases, then quite frankly Americans need to pay for that,” Commerce Secretary Gary Locke told the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.
