We are shocked and devastated by the senseless crime motivated by hatred and racism that was committed in our community on June 6. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of those who were killed, and wish a full recovery to the surviving young boy who remains in hospital. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim partners, colleagues, clients, friends, and neighbours in rejecting Islamophobia in all forms, and demanding better for our community. Hatred has no place here. It diminishes every one of us. Each of us shares the responsibility for putting an end to it. We recognize that as members of the legal profession, our share of that responsibility is heightened. This unspeakable crime strikes at the very core of the Muslim community’s sense of security and will have a lasting impact. Although this tragedy can never be undone, we believe the goodness in our city will prevail. We commit to be better for each other, to demand better from each other and to share love, kindness and tolerance with one another. We must stand together to build a safer, more inclusive community for all.

There has been so much confusion about the stolen emails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, but few have read the million words as a whole. They show that climate scientists are human, but they don’t undercut the science itself. For example, one of the much quoted 1999 emails talks about a “trick” in adding data to a graph. What was the trick? Using actual, measured air temperature data instead of inferences from tree rings.

Associated Press had three or four reporters read every word of the emails. Their analysis is here. And here is one from Constructionomics.

Meanwhile, the Economist has helpfully pointed out that emission cuts would cost the world economy only about 20% of what we just spent bailing out banks. The central battle is not about whether to cut emissions, and not even so much about how much, but over who will pay.
