by Einar Du Rietz …and the famous/infamous hockey stick got stowed away long before the latest world championship even started. Then occasionally picked out again. The IPCC took out the hockey stick graph from two of their last reports. Somehow, it managed to creep back into the report submitted before Copenhagen, apparently picked up by one of the assistants, from Wikipedia. Now, even the inventor of this symbol, Michael Mann, concedes that it was, if not altogether wrong, at least “misplaced”. In an BBC interview summarized in the British Daily Telegraph by reporter Louise Gray, he concludes that “I always thought it was [...]
Delegates from around the world gather in Bonn this weekend to chart the future of a new global-warming treaty they hope to sign in Mexico this fall or in South Africa in 2011 at the latest. This treaty would lock our nation into massive new taxation, regulation, subsidies and redistribution; take unprecedented control of our economy; and radically alter our way of life.
by Einar Du Rietz Exonerated, is a beautiful word. It means that all your trouble are gone and you can go back to sleep, with no accusations hanging over your head. Consequently, it is also frequently used in the comments after the UK parliamentary committee delivered its report on Professor Jones’ responsibility for the strange events at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia University. The problems with Climategate are instead described as a lack of routines and a culture of secrecy, something the panel advises CRU to do something about. Note that this is only about the [...]
"An entire branch of science is in crisis." Der Spiegel has posted an in-depth article on the UN IPCC's fall from grace as people around the world examine the exaggerations, mistakes and manipulations of climate science. Can the global warming propaganda machine go back to saying whatever it wants and suppressing all dissent? If the folks at Der Spiegel are willing to open their minds, who is next? We suppose the BBC is too much to hope for......
What a pity that my book ‘Eco-Nihilism’, published in 2007 in Germany, has never been translated in English, because you can find there a special sub-chapter on the dangers of ‘Post Normal Science’ (PNS). Recently James Delingpole in the British ‘Spectator’ and in his ‘Telegraph’-Blog found that the concept of PNS, developed already in 1991 by Marxist Philosophers Silvio Funtowicz and Jerome Ravetz, was probably the basis of the Global Warming deception that was revealed, last November,through the publication of confidential e-Mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia (‘Climategate’).

The IPCC report and work will undergo an independent review. It’s not a minute too soon, but neither is it too late. The debate will continue and most certainly will myths and false science continue to spread. The problem, as many sensible commentators have pointed out (a recent, rather objective summary with links is here) is not that mistakes were made. They are bound to occur in any scientific work. The problem is that the report was used as an argument to claim that “the Debate is Over”. And, of course that politicians frantically rushed in to spend other people’s money. [...]
by Einar Du Rietz Greenpeace International has now issued a statementsaying that they do not support the earlier demand by their UK chief that IPCC Chair, Dr Pachauri resigns. And besides, their executive director UK John Sauven was probably misunderstood by the Times. And in spite of the record cold winter, it’s hard to find snow in Vancouver. Well well, when the going gets tough, unite behind the guy up front. At lease for a while. Greenpeace also includes a rather well written list of all the “gates” recently, complete with an etymological and historic explanation. For some reason, the false [...]
When I was writing these lines I received a piece of news that an US senate committee had to postpone a debate on Global Warming because of an icy snow storm over the US East coast . However, this weather capriole only confirms what more and more people think. They do no longer believe in man-made global warming. “We are witnessing the Berlin Wall moment in the global warming regime. The statist cabal that has ruled the climate debate since the UN IPCC’s inception in 1988 is now tumbling down before our eyes. The so-called ‘gold-standard’ of scientific review turns out [...]
Aside from ideologues, hydrocarbon haters, Gaia worshipers, profiteers and power-grabbing politicians, most of the sentient world is beginning to realize that the hysteria over global warming disasters is based on dubious to fraudulent temperature data, analyses, models, reports and peer reviews. Climate Research Unit emails, HARRY_READ_ME.txt computer memos, and blatant tampering with Australian, Russian, UK and US temperature data make the scandal impossible to ignore or explain away. They also helped ensure that Copenhagen descended into an expensive, carbon-emitting gabfest – and that China and India rejected any deal that would force them to curtail their energy generation, economic growth and [...]
Prof. Fred Singer presents the Report "Nature, not Human Activity, Rules the Climate" by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change'(NIPCC) at CFACT's International Climate Eco-Summit (I.C.E.) at the Center for Political Studies, Copenhagen, Denmark. December 11, 2009. The whole talk lasts for 45 minutes
Carefully edited for your viewing pleasure, we bring you this video of Lord Christopher Monckton as he singlehandedly gets whole bunch of Greenpeace activists to admit the obvious . His tactic is an overwhelming amount of facts combined with the scientific method. And if you, like Christopher Monckton, are convinced the Cap and Trade regime is based on lousy science please sign our petition, All Pain No Gain, to prevent it from happening.
Climategate emails were released by a whistle blower, not a hacker according to analysis by CFACT Advisor Lord Christopher Monckton. One of the main arguments of the defenders of Climate Change is that the emails were illegally obtained by a "hacker". Lord Christopher Monckton provides evidence that an insider with access to the emails sent them out to help the world learn the truth about the misdeeds of these unethical scientists.
