The peer-review process has long been fraught with problems when it comes to global warming.
The infamous “Climategate” emails revealed global warming campaigners colluding to exclude research inconvenient to their narrative from academic journals.
Instead, time and again they issued over-the-top claims based on climate computer simulations. Real-world observation revealed their models and their pronouncements to be fundamentally flawed.
Recently a growing number of academics have been publishing work that corrects the record. The ability of the global warming campaign to pillory and exclude voices of reason may be running out.
CFACT’s good friend James Delingpole published one of his signature hard-hitting reports which explains that, “the scare about global warming is overdone, according to more than 40 scientific papers published in just the first three months of 2018… What their charts clearly show is that ‘nothing climatically unusual is happening.’”
Marc Morano featured Delingpole’s piece over at Climate Depot.
Some recent scientific thought? Polar bear habitat has not shrunk in decades, historical warming periods were global (not local), last century’s small warming was historically normal, southern sea ice has dramatically expanded, and Greenland and Antarctica have been cooling. You can read the full report here.
The problem, of course, is that the media trumpets studies that exaggerate warming and remain silent when studies correct the record.
With a torrent of reality leaking into academic journals, can the media hold back the flood?
