• More Science Fiction From The IPCC

    • Date: 25/02/10

    I’ve always thought the IPCC should be considered science fiction rather than science. Literally. Jack Vance, described this past summer in the New York Times Magazine as “the greatest living writer of science fiction and fantasy,” used the acronym IPCC in his futuristic Demon Princes novels to represent the Interworld Police Coordination Company — sort […]

  • Tim Worstall: Saving The Earth Need Not Cost Us The Earth

    • Date: 24/02/10

    Can I come in from the cold now? Let me explain. I was one of the first sceptics about man-made global warming and endured pariah status as a result but suddenly my views are fashionable. The University of East Anglia’s climate science unit is at bay and claims that the Himalayan glaciers are disappearing have, […]

  • George F. Will: Global Warming Advocates Ignore The Boulders

    • Date: 22/02/10

    Science, many scientists say, has been restored to her rightful throne because progressives have regained power. Progressives, say progressives, emulate the cool detachment of scientific discourse. So hear the calm, collected voice of a scientist lavishly honored by progressives, Rajendra Pachauri. He is chairman of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which […]

  • Gordon Crovitz: Climate Change And Open Science

    • Date: 22/02/10

    ‘Unequivocal.” That’s quite a claim in this skeptical era, so it’s been enlightening to watch the unraveling of the absolute certainty of global warming caused by man. Now even authors of the 2007 United Nations report that “warming of the climate system is unequivocal” have backed off its key assumptions and dire warnings. Science is […]

  • What The Weatherman Never Said

    • Date: 21/02/10

    As the roof continues to fall in on them, in an endless succession of scandals, the beleaguered defenders of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have at last managed to mount a riposte by coming up with a “scandal” of their own. Under the headline “fabricated quote used to discredit climate scientist”, The Independent […]

  • The Crackup Of The Climate ‘Consensus’

    • Date: 20/02/10

    The climate-change campaign is in catastrophic free fall. Nearly every day brings a new embarrassment or retraction for the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the supposed gold standard for “consensus” science. The withdrawal this week of BP, ConocoPhillips and Caterpillar from the main US business lobby for greenhouse-gas controls is the latest political blow […]

  • Debra J. Saunders: The Winter Of Global Warming

    • Date: 18/02/10

    The last few months have been cruel and wintry for global-warming true believers. The long storm began in November, when a leak of e-mails from Britain’s University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit revealed that key global-warming scientists tried to stifle dissent, politicize peer-review, which led to revelations that the researchers had dumped much of […]

  • Lorne Gunter: They’re Finally Admitting The Science Isn’t Settled

    • Date: 17/02/10

    Why does Climategate matter? Who cares whether the climate data on a computer at some obscure English university has been deliberately corrupted? In one form or another, I have had to answer these questions from dozens of readers in the three months since thousands of e-mails and computer files were leaked from the Climate Research […]
