• Andrew Montford: Bad Journalism

    • Date: 02/09/11

    I did a quick follow up on that 2008 malaria prediction: The UK is to be hit by regular malaria outbreaks, fatal heatwaves and contaminated drinking water within five years because of global warming, the Government has warned the NHS. I checked this out in the original report, which is here. Remarkably, the authors put the malaria […]

  • Donna Laframboise: The IAC Report One Year Later

    • Date: 01/09/11

    A year ago today I blogged about a historic report. In late August last year a committee established by the InterAcademy Council delivered 100+ pages of findings regarding the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). IPCC officials and supporters have long advanced an outrageously misleading marketing message. We’ve been told this UN body is in a class […]

  • Sweden’s Sea Ice Worries Lead To Icebreaker Recall

    • Date: 31/08/11

    One problem with ‘global warming’ that scientists and journalists seem to gloss over is that it doesn’t seem to be, well, global. Some areas have exhibited more warming than others. The Arctic is one area that gets a lot of focus.  Each summer the media makes a big deal of the extent of Arctic sea […]

  • Charlie Martin: Reasons To Be A Global Warming Skeptic

    • Date: 31/08/11

    The predictions of further warming are necessarily based on models. Now, it happens I did my PhD work on Federally funded modeling, from which I developed the NBSR Law (named after the group for which I worked): All modeling efforts will inevitably converge on the result most likely to lead to further funding. (I ended […]

  • Mona Charen: A Lesson From A Hurricane

    • Date: 30/08/11

    The pro-science posture is to recognize the limitations of what we can currently predict, and to remain open to evidence. Shrieking your insistence that the “science is settled” only demonstrates an unscientific and dogmatic orthodoxy. The favored liberal Democratic narrative — we’ve seen it trotted out against Rick Perry in the past two weeks — […]

  • Matt Ridley’s Climate Correspondence With The Academy Of Medical Sciences

    • Date: 29/08/11

    Some years ago, presumably for having written books on genetics, I was elected a fellow of Britain’s Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS). This was a great honour and I was even more pleased to be invited to speak at one of their annual dinners. Then, towards the end of 2010, there dropped through my letter […]

  • Study On Global Plant Die-Off In Doubt

    • Date: 28/08/11

    A study on plant productivity that said drought and global warming were killing off plants worldwide is now being questioned by scientists, according to research published Thursday. In the study published in the journal Science last year, researchers Maosheng Zhao and Steven Running of the University of Montana used NASA satellite data to show that […]

  • Donna Lamframboise: Pachauri’s Squishy Timeline

    • Date: 27/08/11

    Back in January 2005, Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, told us there wasn’t a moment to lose in the fight against climate change. By November 2007 he was ominously declaring that the next two to three years would determine our future. That was the defining moment. It would be too late, he said, […]
