• Tears Of A Clown

    • Date: 30/03/10

    False forecasts are not without consequences. How to think about this? Opposition to “Crying Wolf” is growing.

  • Christopher Booker: Can We Trust The ‘Climategate’ Inquiry?

    • Date: 28/03/10

    There has been a curious by-product of the attempts being made by the University of East Anglia to whitewash last November’s embarrassing leak of documents from its Climatic Research Unit. Since it set up not one but two supposedly “independent” inquiries into the “Climategate” affair, climate sceptics were intrigued but not entirely surprised to find […]

  • Stephen McIntyre: Another Tainted Inquiry

    • Date: 24/03/10

    It’s pretty discouraging that yet another inquiry is tainted by the selection of their panel. The University of East Anglia, seemingly emboldened by getting away with Geoffrey Boulton’s appointment to the ethics panel, have become much bolder in choosing the science panel. Chairman Oxburgh, a former oil company executive, is a green entrepeneur. Kerry Emanuel is […]

  • The Scaremonger State

    • Date: 22/03/10

    Two pieces of government propaganda advertising that twist nursery rhymes (and heartstrings) to raise climate change awareness have been banned by the Advertising Standards Agency.

  • End-Phase Of The Climate Wars?

    • Date: 21/03/10

    History may see the interview of CRU’s Professor Phil Jones by the BBC’s Roger Harrabin on 12 February 2010 as the opening of the end-phase of the long-running “alarmists versus sceptics” debate.
