• Dominic Lawson: If We Tax Cars, Then Why Not Cattle?

    • Date: 21/07/10

    Who knew it would be so easy to save the planet? This is the first paragraph from a disconcertingly encouraging story in yesterday’s Independent: “Curry spices could hold the key to reducing the enormous greenhouse gas emissions given off by grazing animals such as sheep, cows and goats, scientists have claimed.” Apparently, researchers at Newcastle […]

  • Cardinal George Pell: Vanishing Challenge

    • Date: 20/07/10

    Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney: Humanly induced climate change was once “the greatest moral challenge of our age”. No longer. The hullaballoo is much less. A politician referred my February article on global warming to the Bureau of Meteorology for comment. In a roundabout way they conceded the truth of most of my factual […]

  • Please Remain Calm: The Earth Will Heal Itself

    • Date: 19/07/10

    Stanford University physicist Robert Laughlin says governments – and people generally – should proceed with more humility in dealing with climate change.

    Global warming alarmists claim vindication after last year’s data manipulation scandal. Don’t believe the ‘independent’ reviews. Last November there was a world-wide outcry when a trove of emails were released suggesting some of the world’s leading climate scientists engaged in professional misconduct, data manipulation and jiggering of both the scientific literature and climatic data to […]

  • The IPCC’s First Test In “A New World Of Openness”

    • Date: 12/07/10

    “Climate science is a matter of such global importance, that the highest standards of honesty, rigour and openness are needed in its conduct,” stated the Muir Russell report into the Climategate scandal after it found the Climatic Research Unit at the UK’s East Anglia University guilty of “a consistent pattern of failing to display the proper […]

  • Bob Denton: Russell Review Resiled From Its Remit By Intent

    • Date: 11/07/10

    It’s now possible to analyse how the absence of any formal “truth seeking” process in the Muir Panel procedure permitted it to finesse the damning evidence of the e-mails and meander into inconclusiveness. The first stage was for the Panel to determine that the e-mail enquiry was not really about the e-mails – it was […]
