• Speeding Tickets And The IPCC

    • Date: 20/04/11

    The amazing thing about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is that it inhabits a world without checks-and-balances. If you lived in a town in which speed limits were posted but everyone knew there were no traffic cops, would you obey the speed limit? Always? Every time you got behind the wheel? Even on […]

  • Warming Doubt Soars: Survey

    • Date: 19/04/11

    Sixty percent of Protestant pastors disagree that global warming is real and manmade, and 41 percent of them “strongly” disagree, a new survey says. The skepticism is up from an already high 48 percent of pastors in 2008 who somewhat or strongly disagreed with the strong scientific consensus on manmade global warming. The latest result […]

  • UN Embarrassed By Forecast On Climate Refugees

    • Date: 18/04/11

    Six years ago, the United Nations issued a dramatic warning that the world would have to cope with 50 million climate refugees by 2010.

  • 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. The authors’ prime expertise is […]

  • 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. As you might expect, the conclusions are quite different […]

  • Yamal And Oxburgh’s “Blinder Well Played”

    • Date: 11/04/11

    The Oxburgh panel flouted both usual inquiry standards and recommendations from the Parliamentary Committee. Please read the preceding post on Yamal background before today’s post discussing the handling of Yamal/Polar Urals by the Oxburgh “Inquiry”.
