• UNEP And The Missing Map

    • Date: 17/04/11

    UNEP is now on my list of reasons why the IPCC – and the entire UN framework under which it operates – cannot be trusted. A number of blogs are currently discussing a scandal involving a map (see here,here, and here). Earlier this week Gavin Atkins wrote a story headlined What happened to the climate refugees? He linked […]

  • John Nicol: Science Without Method

    • Date: 13/04/11

    Global warming research: whatever happened to the scientific method? Global warming, and its euphemistic sibling “climate change”, remain much in the news. Specialist research groups around the world continue to produce an unending sequence of papers aimed at demonstrating a litany of problems which might arise should global warming resume.

  • Alan Carlin: A Multidisciplinary, Science-Based Approach To The Economics of Climate Change

    • Date: 12/04/11

    Readers might be interested in a new paper of mine that asks what happens if the scientific method is applied to determining the validity of the science behind the global warming hypothesis and then applying these results to estimating the economic benefits of global warming control.

  • Yamal And Oxburgh’s “Blinder Well Played”

    • Date: 11/04/11

  • What Happened To The Climate Refugees?

    • Date: 11/04/11

    In 2005, the United Nations Environment Programme predicted that climate change would create 50 million climate refugees by 2010. These people, it was said, would flee a range of disasters including sea level rise, increases in the numbers and severity of hurricanes, and disruption to food production. The UNEP even provided a handy map. The map shows us the […]

  • Donna Lamframboise: The State Of The IPCC’s Leadership

    • Date: 10/04/11

    Rajendra Pachauri, as chairman of what is supposed to be a respectable science body, has – with deliberation and forethought – publicly linked that body to left-wing political analysis and activism. In doing so he has single-handedly made it impossible for anyone who cares about scientific integrity, scholarly impartiality, or old-fashioned propriety to take the […]

  • EU Emissions Trading Scheme Destined To Fail, Report Warns

    • Date: 07/04/11

    Lobbying from industry, and from national governments, has turned the EU Emissions Trading Scheme into a major source of subsidies, with power companies expected to receive windfall profits of over €70 billion in the current phase. The EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) has failed to cut carbon emissions and will continue to fail when the […]
