WHY IS THE VATICAN BURNING WITH GLOBAL WARMING ENTHUSIASM?
Policy

Posted 30 April 2015

"Why is the Catholic Church enytering into nthe fray of doubtful global warming science?  Why now and why with such shrill apocalyptic  exaggerated rhetoric? Why strident calls for supranational government control at the same time the actual evidence for doom grows weaker and weaker?...Used to be in the West when the Catholic Church spoke people listened....Sure, they sometimes rejected, perhaps even more than they heeded. But the Church was an influence.  Not so now...The press, politicians, and people no longer care what the clergy has to say on designer babies (i.e. eugenics), abortion, homosexual acts, same-sex "marriage", you name it."  Williams M Briggs, commenting in the US Catholic journal Crisis on the Vatican conference on climate change.

Policy

Posted 28 April 2015

In advance of a meeting convened in the Vatican by Pope Francis to discuss climate change, there have been two significant developments.  The first has been a "prebuttal" meeting near the Vatican organised by the Heartland Institute of Chicago, USA, at which strong blunt words were directed to the Pope by Viscount Christopher Monckton, a prominent UK Catholic layman (reported below in the National Catholic Reporter). The second has been an open letter to the Pope by the Cornwall Alliance (www.cornwallalliance.org/) a UK group of Christian scientists, religious leaders and academics( link below).

SCIENCE TEAM TO START TO EXAMINE FIDDLED GLOBAL WARMING FIGURES
Science

Posted 26 April 2015

"Careful analysts have come with hundreds of examples of how the original data recorded by 3,000-odd weather stations has been 'adjusted', to exaggerate the degree to which the Earth actually has been warming....So strong is the evidence that all this calls...have now brought a heavyweight response. The Global Warming Policy Foundation has enlisted an international team of five distinguished scientists to carry out a full inquiry into just how far these manipulations of the data may have distorted our picture of what is really happening to global temperatures."  Christopher Booker, writing in the Daily Telegraph, UK.

WALL STREET JOURNAL WRITER OFFERS 22 WAYS TO THINK ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
Science

Posted 23 April 2015

"The [climate] debate must go on, even as the atmosphere for dialogue gets increasingly polluted. The sacralization of climate is being used as a great loophole in the rule of law, an apology for bad science (and even worse economics), and an excuse to do anything and everything to have and keep power.  Those with reasoned agnosticism about the claims of the Climate Orthodoxy will find themselves in debate. This [Earth Day] I want to offer 22 ways to think about the climate-change debate. I hope these points will give those willing to question man-made climate change some aid and comfort."  Max Borders, writing in the Wall Street Journal.

MISSISSIPPI LAW PROFESSOR ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE 'SETTLED SCIENCE' BULLIES
Science

Posted 22 April 2015

"The controversy over man-made global warming is far from settled. Despite claims that 'the science is all in' and 'there is no room for debate', the scientific method, with repeatable and falsifiable hypotheses, cannot really work when applied to the environment. Instead, scientists develop models - hyotheses, if you will - that set forth well-informed explanations of how various parts of the environment interrelate. Models are then evaluated to see how well their projections correlate with actual, measured data...The problem for [Al] Gore and others is that the models they use to justify legislative action are failing." Ronald J Rychlak, professor of law, at University of MIssissippi posts at WMD, a US independent news network.
