• 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 […]

  • David Henderson: Climategate Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

    • Date: 15/02/10

    A litany of climate climate science flaws can’t be ignored and highlight the need for an open review and evolutionary policies. TWO recent episodes have given rise to concerns about the quality and reliability of expert advice on climate change. First was the unauthorised release of a mass of emails from the Climatic Research Unit […]

  • Nigel Lawson On Oil Smear

    • Date: 14/02/10

    I have considerable affection for, and some slight connection with, The Independent. More than 40 years ago, when I was editor of the Spectator, I gave a promising young journalist called Andreas Whittam Smith his first column. A decade or so later he founded, and was the first editor of, The Independent. And in recent […]

  • Russell Panel Needs Complete Overhaul

    • Date: 12/02/10

    The resignation of Philip Campbell from the Russell Review panel is indicative of the lack of depth, thought and objectivity going into the CRU inquiry. Dr Campbell was aware of what he had written in his Nature editorial and said in an interview to the Chinese media about his belief in the innocence of the […]
