Day three of the climate change summit sees scientists rally in response to the doubters, which include Sarah Palin – round-up of coverage in the world’s newspapers, magazines and websites

‘Top scientists rally to the defence of the Met office’ reports The Times, as over 1,700 scientists unite to defend the ‘professional integrity’ of global warming research.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, seizing on yesterday’s accusations of ‘falsified data’, has called on Barack Obama to boycott the talks, according to the Daily Telegraph.

‘Sweden pledges 800 million euro climate change fund’ says the official COP15 site, reporting that Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt will announce the donation today for a so-called ‘fast-start’ financing fund.

The AP is using Social networking site Twitter to engage its readers during the Climate change conference. A Tweet quotes investor-philanthropist George Soros warning that the ‘Finance gap could ‘wreck’ climate talks’. A related article comments that the ‘$10 billion a year proposed by rich nations to help the poor adapt to climate change is ‘not much, it’s not sufficient’.

A good way to get real-time updates on the conference is to follow The Climate Pool on Facebook, run by AP and 10 other news agencies.
