The methane story is greatly exaggerated. I'm not saying this is good news, but it is not as bad as many are trying to make out. http://www.igbp.net/news/features/features/methanenotadampsquibnotyetatimebomb.5.19b40be31390c033ede80001011.html http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2013/07/25/methane-mischief-misleading-commentary-published-in-nature/ http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2012/01/much-ado-about-methane/ I do not understand the reason that with so much to worry about people look for even more to worry about than the evidence warrants.

Please everybody, when you are doing your back-of-the-envelope calculations, do not confuse tons of CO2 with tons of carbon. This is a very common source of confusion. These measures are directly proportionally related with a scaling factor of 3.69, but they are not interchangeable. Please take care as many people are getting things badly wrong because of this.
Frum makes pragmatism sound so sinister. Yet the Conservatives are coasting on the stable society created by two generations of Canadian Liberal pragmatism. The principle of liberalism is precisely that no principle is more important than any other; that the job of promoting a stable and prosperous society is all about compromise among competing interests, that each issue is sui generis, that the state exists in service of the nation and not the other way around.
