• No Conclusions Possible about Himalayan Glaciers

    • Date: 26/01/10

    Despite the IPCC’s statement that they were wrong to include references to the possibility that Himalayan glaciers could vanish by 2035 – an assertion that has no scientific credibility – the question is still being asked: Are the Himalayan glaciers shrinking because of global warming? The answer is not clear. A recent comprehensive report by […]

  • IPCC Wrongly Linked Global Warming To Natural Disasters

    • Date: 24/01/10

    The United Nations climate science panel faces new controversy for wrongly linking global warming to an increase in the number and severity of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods. It based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny — and ignored warnings from scientific advisers that […]

  • Earth’s Uncertain Response to CO2

    • Date: 20/01/10

    The Earth has warmed substantially less than would have been expected during the industrial era based on current best estimates of Earth’s “climate sensitivity” – the amount of global temperature rise predicted in response to a given rise in atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2). A study just published in the Journal of Climate, Stephen […]

  • World Misled Over Himalayan Glaciers

    • Date: 17/01/10

    A warning that climate change will melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 is likely to be retracted after a series of scientific blunders by the United Nations body that issued it. Two years ago the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a benchmark report that was claimed to incorporate the latest and […]

  • Climate-Proof Food Plants Are Coming

    • Date: 16/01/10

    What if we could create a food plant that defied all those doomsday scenarios where extreme temperatures take us all to oblivion, and instead kept growing and fruiting regardless of whether it got very hot or very cold? “We would never run out of food!” remarked Philip Wigge, a scientist at the Norwich-based John Innes Centre, […]

  • Exaggerating The Impact Of Climate Change On The Spread Of Malaria

    • Date: 13/01/10

    A recent press release from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) suggested that millions more people in Kenya are susceptible to malaria as a result of mosquitoes colonising higher ground as global temperatures rise. (‘New evidence of a link between climate change and malaria’, 30.12.09 – see below). The press release was extensively covered […]

  • New Study: Agricultural Revolution Not Linked To Climate Change

    • Date: 13/01/10

    Sustainable farming and the introduction of new crops relies on a relatively stable climate, not dramatic conditions attributable to climate change. Basing their argument on evolutionary, ecological, genetic and agronomic considerations, Dr. Shahal Abbo, from the Levi Eshkol School of Agriculture at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, and colleagues, demonstrate why climate change is […]

  • Antarctic Ice Shelf Shows No Sign Of Warming

    • Date: 11/01/10

    Sea water under an East Antarctic ice shelf showed no sign of higher temperatures despite fears of a thaw linked to global warming that could bring higher world ocean levels, first tests showed on Monday. Sensors lowered through three holes drilled in the Fimbul Ice Shelf showed the sea water is still around freezing and […]
