• Peter Foster: Climategate Whitewash

    • Date: 16/04/10

    “Climategate scientists cleared of wrongdoing” read the headline in yesterday’s Post. Who expected anything else? The two self-inquiries launched by the University of East Anglia into its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) were always destined to produce whitewashes, as did a recent UK parliamentary inquiry, and as will an “independent” review by the UN. The first […]

  • Stephen McIntyre: Oxburgh’s Trick to Hide the Trick

    • Date: 14/04/10

    The Oxburgh report ” is a flimsy and embarrassing 5-pages. They did not interview me (nor, to my knowledge, any other CRU critics or targets). The committee was announced on March 22 and their “report” is dated April 12 – three weeks end to end – less time than even the Parliamentary Committee. They took no […]

  • Matt Ridley: The Climate Blame Game

    • Date: 14/04/10

    A scientist does a study of how Arctic seabirds die. It’s not a bad idea: die they do, but not from the usual diseases and predators that kill birds in more temperate zones.

  • Green Glitches in German

    • Date: 13/04/10

    In Germany, Weltschmerz is the sadness one feels when comparing the way the world is to the way it ought to be.

  • Lawrence Solomon: The New Climate Game

    • Date: 10/04/10

    Climate scientists play a good game of whack-a-mole. Right from the early days of the global warming controversy, they whacked any scientist who dissented from the view that CO2 was warming the planet in a dangerous way. Up popped other skeptical scientists, and WHACK!! Down they went. Up popped skeptical journalists and WHACK! Down they […]

  • Ben Pile: Political Prejudices Dressed Up As Science

    • Date: 08/04/10

    It is their doom-laden political outlook that really convinces greens the world is ending, not scientific evidence. Despite the apparent central position of science in debates and policymaking around climate change, more often than not policy responses are tempered by politics first, and science second.
