  • 'Climategate' was 'a game-changer' in science reporting, say climatologists

    Science has been changed forever by the so-called "climategate" saga, leading researchers have said ahead of publication of an inquiry into the affair – and mostly it has been changed for the better. This Wednesday sees the publication of the Muir Russell report into the conduct of scientists from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU), whose emails caused a furore in November after they were hacked into and published online. Critics say the emails reveal evasion of freedom of information law, secret deals done during the writing of reports for the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change...
  • Could Climate Science Survive a Legal Cross Examination?

    Could the global warming hypothesis meet the rigorous evidentiary standards of a legal trial? The answer, according to Jason Scott Johnston, is clearly negative. Johnston is the Robert G. Fuller, Jr. Professor of Law, and Director of the Program on Law, Environment and Economy of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. His 79 page essay, Global Warming Advocacy Science: A Cross Examination, published by the Institute of Law and Economics, examines a broad range of evidence both for and against the conclusions drawn by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). http://icecap.us/images/uploads/stonJason10-May10-CO2ClimateTheoryCannotSurviveLegalExam.pdf After a comprehensive examination of the...
  • National Science Agency Presses for Carbon Tax; Calls ‘Global Warming’ an ‘Urgent Threat’

    Washington (AP) - Ditching its past cautious tone, the nation's top scientists urged the government Wednesday to take drastic action to raise the cost of using coal and oil to slow global warming. The National Academy of Sciences specifically called for a carbon tax on fossil fuels or a cap-and-trade system for curbing greenhouse gas emissions, calling global warming an urgent threat. The academy, which advises the government on scientific matters, said the nation needs to cut the pollution that causes global warming by about 57 percent to 83 percent by 2050. That's close to President Barack Obama's goal. "We...
  • Panel Absolves Climate Scientist [Dr. Michael E. Mann.....]

    Panel Absolves Climate Scientist By JOHN M. BRODER WASHINGTON — An academic board of inquiry has largely cleared a noted Pennsylvania State University climatologist of scientific misconduct, but a second panel will convene to determine whether his behavior undermined public faith in the science of climate change, the university said Wednesday. The scientist, Dr. Michael E. Mann, has been at the center of a roiling dispute arising from the unauthorized release of more than 1,000 e-mail messages from the servers of the University of East Anglia in England, home to one of the world’s premier climate research units. While the...

    In looking at four "possible allegations" of research misconduct against meteorology professor Michael Mann, a Penn State University panel has determined that further investigation is warranted for one of them.

    The Penn State University Collegian newspaper reported Monday that a panel of university faculty and staff had concluded its inquiry of Penn State meteorology professor Michael Mann and would release its "ClimateGate" findings later in the week.
  • Obama aims to ax moon mission (Killing Cent. Florida economy and American dreams at the same time.)

    NASA's plans to return astronauts to the moon are dead. So are the rockets being designed to take them there — that is, if President Barack Obama gets his way. When the White House releases his budget proposal Monday, there will be no money for the Constellation program that was supposed to return humans to the moon by 2020. The troubled and expensive Ares I rocket that was to replace the space shuttle to ferry humans to space will be gone, along with money for its bigger brother, the Ares V cargo rocket that was to launch the fuel and...
  • Not one but two leading alarmist climate scientists desert ship

    The credibility of the IPCC has reached a new all time low. Another leading warmist scientist, this time the UK’s Chief Scientist Prof John Beddington is deserting ship. The impact of global warming has been exaggerated by some scientists and there is an urgent need for more honest disclosure of the uncertainty of predictions about the rate of climate change, according to the Government’s chief scientific adviser. Beddington states in the Times Online: “I don’t think it’s healthy to dismiss proper skepticism. Science grows and improves in the light of criticism. There is a fundamental uncertainty about climate change prediction...
  • World Misled Over Himalayan Glacier Meltdown [Official Retraction Expected: Major Blow To Al Gore!]

    January 17, 2010 World Misled Over Himalayan Glacier Meltdown 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 most detailed research into the impact of global warming. A central claim was the world's glaciers were melting so fast that those in the Himalayas could vanish by 2035. In the past few days the scientists...

    Science has come full-circle, taking a page from the medieval Church by using fear and persecution to silence skeptics. The oppressed have become the oppressors. Given that most professional scientific bodies and peer-reviewed journals have been active accomplices in this scandal, one wonders how many other so called scientific consensuses have been similarly engineered and waiting for their own ClimateGates before truth is known. —Joanne Nova The above quote is important because it addresses the politicization of science and research. Dean Esmay, the owner of Dean’s World where I blog occasionally as part of a group, has often commented that...

    It could not be more ironic that all the efforts of the world's sophisticates to build Obama up have been brought to naught by Mother Nature, who exposed him for the chump he is. For only a chump could advocate economic suicide to stop global warming while the earth is about to enter a historic arctic snap. Obama tried this in Copenhagen, where he feverishly pressured the assembled dignitaries to adopt measures that would drive their economies into the ground. Not surprisingly, they said, "thanks, but no thanks." They apparently did not think it was such a good idea to...
  • HUNDREDS of thousands of naked Hindu holy men heading for Britain to fight global warming

    The sect – which shuns clothes and sex – says more than 250,000 followers will join the global crusade in London, Paris, Munich, New York, Beijing and Tokyo, according to the Austrian Times. “We have decided to do our bit to save the planet from global warming,” said leader Shri Soham Baba. ” According to the New York Daily News, the campaign will start during Kumbh Mela: “When thousands of naked Hindus speak, will the world listen?
