When only a third of peer-reviewed studies reach the same results when they are replicated by outside authors, this is a serious problem.
Can the heavily politicized Goddard Institute for Space Studies be reformed?
Climate hustlers tried to use the RICO law to chill the global warming debate. They used publicly funded resources that subjected them to the Freedom of Information Act. Read what they didn't want to disclose. It's not pretty.
CFACT's Bonn press conference: Statement of Executive Director Craig Rucker, the UN streamed it live and there is UNFCCC on demand video available featuring Craig Rucker and Wolfgang Mueller of the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE).
It may be mating time, but this cicada is not happy.
Unless you happen to get all your news from the mainstream media, you will undoubtedly recognize that by “Climategate”, I’m referring here to the thousands of leaked email communications between prominent international researchers within the U.K.’s University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU) network.
Read Mr. FOIA's message. Climategate 3.0 is set to rock the global warming establishment. 220,000 encrypted emails which document what goes on behind the scenes at team global warming are suddenly decrypted and free for the public to view. What they reveal is not pretty. How unsettling. Who is this masked FOIA and how can we thank him?
In this corner..... Marc "The Godfather" Morano. In the other corner..... Michael "Hockey Schtick" Mann. Hear it now, while you still can!
The party season has started. In about a month, Rio will be crowded by politicians and hooligans for the mega environmental gathering, but allready next week, good old Hotel Maritim in Bonn will fill up with the usual bunch for yet another climate conference. Nothing wrong with Bonn, or Maritim for that matter, but don't people get bored? From the UNFCCC invitation: "The 36th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), the fifteenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action...". That's just for starters, but [...]
Realist or Alarmist? During my years in the climate debate, I've been called all sorts of things. Climate Hater, Weather Denier, to mention a few. Apparently all climate realists are now also "Anti-Science", and according to Robin McKie, writing for the Observer, though this article was found in our fanzine The Guardian, people are getting scared. "Most scientists, on achieving high office, keep their public remarks to the bland and reassuring. Last week Nina Fedoroff, the president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), broke ranks in a spectacular manner. She confessed that she was now "scared [...]
When I was a kid, we were told that pollution was the worst threat to the world. This pollution was also supposed to be caused by greedy capitalists. The absolute environmental catastrophes behind the iron curtain were yet to be witnessed. And all resources would end. According to the figures I was taught in school during the 70's, it would be impossible to write this. Or do anything else today. Then came the ozone layer. Anyone heard about that lately? And then the climate scare. The latter has probably been one of the most damaging political projects so far, and not [...]
by Einar Du Rietz How can we ever forget the Climate-gate scandal that erupted right in time for the Copenhagen debacle. Or fail to note that, interestingly enough, some of the more stunning revelations - Holland-gate etc - were made just after the conference. Now, during the count down for Cancun, it's worth the effort to try to recall the events of the past year, and what Climate-gate was really about. My admirable colleague, Professor Ingemar Nordin recently posted a reminderon the Climatescam site. Definitely worth reading. Nordin tracks back to some of the more peculiar early mail conversations revealed. - Few [...]
by Einar Du Rietz The - most likely - last preparatory conference before Cancun kicks off today in China. The fact that the debate has changed quite substantially during the past year, that the IPCC's credibility is at an all time low, that more and more scientists have started questioning the validity of the entire Man Made Global Warming theory, and that no warming has been detected during the last decade, does not bother the delegates. What bothers most of them, and especially the big whig politicians, is to avoid creating the same fiasco all over again. Consequently, everyone is talking about [...]
MALCOLM A. KLINE Einar Du Rietz is happy to introduce his old tutor as a guest at CFACT.EU. So entrenched is the belief in global warming in academia that even when critiquing its adherents, academics still feel compelled to pay it homage. “The IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] does a very good job of reporting the climate science,” Yale economist Robert Mendelsohn told an audience at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) on Friday, September 24, 2010. “It is a problem that will accumulate for centuries.” “Ignoring it will leave you looking like Neville Chamberlain,” the ill-fated Conservative Prime Minister of [...]
Many readers of this site have been following the controversy caused when Prof. John Abraham of the University of St. Thomas posted a lengthy video critique of a speech delivered by CFACT Advisor, Lord Christopher Monckton last October in St. Paul Minnesota. Here is Lord Monckton's freshly issued, detailed written response to Prof. Abraham in PDF form. When we watched Prof. Abraham's video we were mainly struck by Prof. Abraham's making much of Lord Monckton not always labeling his graphs with their source. This was not a valid critique. Lord Monckton was doing a power point presentation in which time or [...]
