Science Resettled

February 20, 2010

If the science is so settled why do supporters gotta make it up?

  • World may not be warming, say scientists, “The United Nations climate panel faces a new challenge with scientists casting doubt on its claim that global temperatures are rising inexorably because of human pollution. In its last assessment the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the evidence that the world was warming was “unequivocal”… However, new research, including work by British scientists, is casting doubt on such claims. Some even suggest the world may not be warming much at all. “The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change,” said John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a former lead author on the IPCC.” – TimesOnline
  • Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995, “Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon. And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.” – DailyMail
  • U.N. climate panel admits Dutch sea level flaw, “A background note by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said a 2007 report wrongly stated that 55 percent of the country was below sea level since the figure included areas above sea level, prone to flooding along rivers… The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, the original source of the incorrect data, said on February 5 that just 26 percent of the country is below sea level and 29 percent susceptible to river flooding. The IPCC said the error was widespread — it quoted a report from the Dutch Ministry of Transport saying “about 60 percent” of the country is below sea level, and a European Commission study saying “about half.” – Reuters

Reports of shoddy work, a reliance on “gray” literature, and fraud are now the new climate change buzz words. Even the public has figured out that climate change is snake oil science, or worse, a possible conspiracy to enrich “true believers.” Given that billions of dollars are at stake, it’s not hard to see what motivates scientists and politicians (D) to keep up the climate shell game.

We’re expecting more chilly temperatures and snow this afternoon here in Big D. Dallas just received a record breaking 12.5 inches of global cooling and the Deep South is expecting more snow. Yet the climate change lie refuses to die, at least with scientists and their groupies. They claim the snow is a by-product of global warming. Sadly for these climate change Chicken Littles, the evidence is overwhelmingly to the contrary.
