European Union carbon permits and U.N.-backed credits collapsed to record lows on Thursday, extending this week’s sharp price slide as fears of a slowing economy sapped demand in the markets that are heavily supplied with emissions units.It was also a signal that market participants are losing confidence in the flagging EU carbon market, the world’s biggest cap-trade scheme, traders and analysts said.This latest crash could not have come at a worse time. In just a few days a U.N. climate summit in South Africa will resume work on a new globally binding pact to cut emissions.Investors are already nervous about the future of carbon markets, given the uncertainty around when a new climate pact will emerge and what trading mechanisms will operate under it.Confidence is at an absolute minimum. It’s the macro-economic picture and the whole sentiment is not too good,” said a carbon trader at a financial institution.

Via Dick Puddlecote, the final details for Saturday.
"We'll be gathering from 11am onwards at the Vaults Bar, High Street, Stony Stratford, Buckinghamshire, MK11 1AQ. It is the bar to the right of the orange awning in the image below. Click here for a big arrow pointing to its location on the High Street."
Dick has details of Parking (it's free!), Buses (whatever they are) Taxis (how much!?!?) and other interesting stuff, including a list of confirmed speakers.
Not sure if the Bartlett will show up, but I don't really care, so don't know why I mentioned it, really.
Please don't allow this to happen again..
Ashtrays will be provided and hopefully, Bartlett won't have unfettered access to them, so that he can stage another photo op with pilfered dog ends.

Wants to emulate, this bloke:
Hitler (as if you couldn't guess) by instituting a ban on smoking in public.
You can listen to Herr Bartlett here, the whiny twat that he is...
Meanwhile, Dick Puddlecote has arranged a bit of a bash in the Evil Councillor's back yard here and here
Lots of telly people are going to be in attendance, plus some rather interesting speakers on the side of the Angels.
Beer is rumoured to be in abundance via payment over the bar and loads of interesting chaps and chapesses will be floating around to make it a thoroughly wonderful event.
Below are some posters that you may, or may not, care to use if you attend or wish to publicise this wonderful event.
Looking forward to meeting up on the 16th :)

A campaign to put controls on cloned meat and milk was killed off yesterday by the UK Government and Brussels. The move signals the start of a free-for-all in ‘Frankenfood’ – despite claims the technology is cruel and unethical. Shoppers will be left in the dark because products from the offspring of cloned animals will not require special labels. One MEP warned supermarkets could soon be flooded with their milk.

Flanked by Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne who will run the department, Cameron reassured civil servants that the environment was a top priority for him. “There is a fourth minister in this department who cares passionately about this agenda and that is me, the prime minister, right. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.”We are Fucked!
In his introduction, Huhne said, “Climate change is in my view, our view, the greatest challenge facing mankind,” adding that he wanted to go “further and faster than ever before”.
