U.S. COMMENTERS EXCORIATE A PAPER IN 'SCIENCE' THAT DENIES GLOBAL WARMING PAUSE
Science

Posted 3 July 2015

Prominent U.S. climate scientists Dr Fred Singer has responded to an article in the magazine Science in which Dr Tom Karl, head of the US National Climate Data Center asserts that the temperature plateau (aka 'pause' of 'hiatus') is simply an artifact of the data. After Karl and colleagues adjusted some recent sea-surface temp readings, they claim an uninterrupted warming trend in the 21st century. Dr Singer writes: "The Karl claims gave rise to many published comments, mostly negative: there was not a single comment in support of the Karl paper. Some simply addressed technical details - the fact that atmospheric data, from satellites as well as balloon-borne radiosondes, have shown no warming trend. But many other comments questioned the good faith of the authors and implied political motives."

ON GLOBAL WARMING THE POPE IS FAR FROM INFALLIBLE - MONCKTON
Science

Posted 3 July

Countering at attack posted in the Delaware Online News  against a challenge to the recent encyclical of Pope Francis, Catholic layman and climate commentator, Viscount Christopher Monckton has popsyed his own comments:  "The encyclical says a strong consensus finds recent warming mostly manmade. Yet only 0.3% of 11,944 climate papers published from 1991-2100 were even willing to to go so far as to declare recent warming mostly manmade. It says the 'consensus' reports significant warming. Yet in 1990 the 'consensus' - all 0.3% of them - predicted a central estimate of warming two and a half times what has happened in the 25 years since then. The ocean, monitored reliably for only 11 years, is warming only at 1 degree in 430 years."

THE SCIENCE BEHIND DAGW IS VERY BAD - BUT, OH, THE GRANT MONEY IT BRINGS IN!
Science

Posted 3 July 2015

Norman Rogers writes at American Thinker:  "Professors in climate change disciplines toe the party line on global warming catastrophism, not because they suffer from any pathology, but because it is a professional obligation. Global warming theory brings billions of dollars a year to academia. The scientific societies, being similar to labor unions, enthusiastically support this theory that provides a generous flow of cash. In the days before the global warming golden goose was discovered, professors in relevant diciplines were very unimportant."

THE PAPAL ACADEMIES' BROKEN MORAL COMPASS ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY
Policy

Posted 1 July 2015

In a new report for the UK Global Warming Policy Foundation, reviewing statements by the Vatican's Pontifical Academies in the lead up to the recent encyclical by Pope Francis, Dr Indur Goklany writes: "The [papal] academies say that sustainability and resilience are being destroyed by over-consumption and that fossil fuels are to blame, yet almosy every indication of human well-being, from life-expectancy to health to standard of living has improved beyond measure largely because of our use of fossil fuels." And, according to Dr Goklany's analysis, the beneficial impact of fossil fuels has not only been on human well-being, but also on nature, because fossil fuel use has allowed more intensive use of land, thus reducing the amount of wilderness that has to be diverted to agricultural use.

IMPORTANT NEW PAPER ON GLACIAL ISOSTASY AND GLOBAL SEA LEVELS
Science

Posted 29 June 2015

 An important new paper explaining why and how sea level rises have been incorrectly claimed has been published by one of the world's leading authorities on the subject. He is Dr Nils-Axel Moerner, former head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamic Department at Stockholm University, Sweden. Also a former president of the International Union for Quaternary Research Commission on Neotectonics (INQUA), he  is a critic of IPCC and the notion that the global sea level is rising. He was formerly chairman of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, and led the Maldives Sea Level Project. This is a highly technical paper, but one that deserves wider circulation and better understanding.

MATT RIDLEY EXPLAINS HOW CLIMATE ALARMISTS HAVE DAMAGED SCIENCE
Science

Posted 27 June 2015

"These huge green multinationals, with budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars, have now systematically infiltrated science, as well as industry and media, with the result that many high-profile climate scientists and the journalists who cover them have become one-sided cheerleaders for alarm, while a hit squad of increasingly vicious bloggers polices the debate to ensure that anybody who steps out of line is punished. They insist on stamping out all mention of the heresy that climate change might not be lethally dangerous".  Viscount Matt Ridley writes at Quadrant Online about how climate alarmists have high-jacked the cause of true science.
