• Climategate And The Big Green Lie

    • Date: 14/07/10

    By way of preamble, let me remind you where I stand on climate change. I think climate science points to a risk that the world needs to take seriously. I think energy policy should be intelligently directed towards mitigating this risk. I am for a carbon tax. I also believe that the Climategate emails revealed, […]

  • The Climategate Whitewash Continues

    • Date: 12/07/10

    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 […]

  • What Will The Climate Change Policy Backlash Look Like?

    • Date: 10/07/10

    One thing that strikes me more and more following the developments in climate change policy is that the politicians are storing up a huge backlash.  There is a cosy political consensus that assumes the various targets that Britain has signed up to for emissions reductions and using renewable energy are inviolate, but it doesn’t have […]

  • Clouds Of Doubt Still Hang Over Climate Scientists

    • Date: 09/07/10

    We tend to think of scientists as noble beings and science as the objective pursuit of truth. But once the fairy dust lifts, the reality is that science is a head-to-head competition — a race to see who can get the academic credit and public fame first. Consequently, the purity of that pursuit can be […]

  • No Closure to Climategate until a Culture of Openness has taken Root

    • Date: 08/07/10

    CHANCES are the final review of the “Climategate” affair won’t succeed in cooling the rhetoric about global warming. Nor will it mark a fresh start in relations between skeptics and believers — although that would be the most desirable outcome. That’s because the investigation into the conduct of scientists at the world’s leading climate research […]

  • Nigel Lawson: Adaptation, Not Decarbonisation, Is The Only Way Forward

    • Date: 06/07/10

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that actions speak louder than words. Nowhere is this truer than in global warming policy. The world’s political leaders are ostensibly agreed that, if the planet is to avoid what is customarily misdescribed as ‘catastrophic climate change’, our economies and lifestyles will have to be decarbonised in short order.
