• World Health Organisation Faulted for Willful Exaggeration

    • Global Warming Policy Foundation

    A new briefing paper from the Global Warming Policy Foundation examines the World Health Organisation’s recent report on climate change and finds that its estimates of future mortality from global warming are grossly exaggerated. The WHO report predicted that climate change would bring about 250,000 extra deaths annually between 2030 and 2050, but relied upon […]

    Antarctica’s ice paradox has yet another puzzling layer. Not only is the amount of sea ice increasing each year, but an underwater robot now shows the ice is also much thicker than was previously thought, a new study reports. The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), Jaguar, above, in the East Antarctic Sea, creating three-dimensional maps of […]

    A team of UK researchers has shed new light on the climate of the Little Ice Age, and rekindled debate over the role of the sun in climate change. The new study, which involved detailed scientific examination of a peat bog in southern South America, indicates that the most extreme climate episodes of the Little […]

  • New Science Scandal: Polar Bear Researchers ‘Hide The Increase’

    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    Why did the Southern Beaufort polar bear population survey stop in 2010? It’s clear that the recently-published and widely-hyped new study stopped before the population rebound from a known decline was complete. The researchers of the recently-published paper knew before starting their mark-recapture study in 2007 that the population decline had taken place. They also knew why […]

  • S Beaufort Polar Bears Largely Recovered From 2004-2006 Decline, Says New Study

    • Date: 18/11/14
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    A bit more good news about polar bear populations, this time from an abundance study in the Southern Beaufort Sea. A paper released yesterday showed a 25-50% decline in population size took place between 2004 and 2006 (larger than previously calculated). However, by 2010 the population had rebounded substantially (although not to previous levels). All […]

  • Climate Change Did Not Cause End Of The Bronze Age

    • Date: 18/11/14
    • Sarah Griffiths, Daily Mail

    Until now, researchers blamed the collapse of the Bronze Age on widespread changes in global temperatures. But now experts believe the huge population collapse, that took place in around 800BC, actually occurred two generations before this weather shift. The team used new statistical techniques to analyse more than 2,000 radiocarbon dates, taken from hundreds of archaeological […]

    • Ben Webster, The Times

    The chief scientific adviser to the European Commission has been ousted after a lobbying campaign led by Greenpeace, which objected to her support for genetically modified crops. Professor Anne Glover had said there was no evidence of adverse impacts of GM crops and that opposing them was “a form of madness”. She revealed in an […]
