U.S. SCIENTIST ASKS: WHERE HAS GLOBAL WARMING GONE?
Science

Posted 21 December 2014

 "Monitoring surface temperatures does not give us an accurate enough representation of human-induced global warming. As long as we lack a clear understanding of the relationship between our cumulative greenhouse-gas emissions and the temperature of the earth, it will remain difficult to assess the potential for damage related to climate change caused by humans – or develop the right strategies to minimize it." Professor Ka-Kit Tung, fellow of the American Meteorological Society, writing for Project Syndicate.

VERDICT ON UN FCCC COP 20 AT LIMA: PLUS CA CHANGE...
Policy

Posted 19 December 2014

"This month’s annual climate change jamboree – COP20 in Lima – was billed as a crucial one, to lay the groundwork for an expected binding international agreement in Paris next December. Predictably, like previous climate summits, it ended up as a messy compromise which achieved very little other than temporarily boosting the economy of Lima and filling seats on international flights. The deal which emerged, such as it was, demonstrated the gulf between the industrialised and developing worlds."  The Scientific Alliance in UK has given its verdict of the [non]events recently at LIma.

COMPELLING NEW PAPER ON ETHICS AS APPLIED TO CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY
Science

Posted 18 December 2014

Thanks to the Global Warming Policy Foundation in UK, there is a new paper exploring many of the ethical disputes that characterise climate science and policy in the 21st century.  The author, Dr Peter Lee, is a lecturer in Ethics and Political Theory at the University of Portsmouth, and editor of Truth Wars: The Politics of Climate Change, Military Intervention and Financial Crisis (Palgrave Macmillan). Dr Lee shows that ethical considerations continue to arise at every stage of the climate debate: "In a field characterised by extensive uncertainty, a combination of good intentions and ill-informed policies can result in damaging unintended outcomes for humans and for the natural environment alike." There is a highly supportive foreword by Right Revd Peter Forster, Bishop of Chester.

LATEST IPCC FINDINGS UNDERMINE CLIMATE CHANGE CLAIMS
Science

Posted 10 December 2014

"....And that concludes the investigation. There is no good evidence linking human activities to any of the observed impacts of climate change listed in the Summary for Policymakers of the WG2 report.  Obama et al. indeed seem to have got it wrong." The concluding sentence of an informative, well-researched paper by Roger Andrews, a retired mining geologist and geophysicist. Born in the UK he spent most of his professional career in Australia and the USA. He is now retired to the West coast of Mexico where he spends much of his time sitting under a wavy palm tree blogging and writing informed, incisive and popular articles for the Energy Matters blog.

WHY THERE IS GLOBAL WARMING, AND WHY CO2 IS VITAL TO LIFE
Science

Posted 8 December 2014

We are grateful to Harold Faulkner, of the United States. for researching a paper describing times when the Vikings settled Greenland during a warm cycle when temperatures were vastly higher than they are in this present era. Mr Faulkner's paper also details the importance to life on earth of the tiny amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.

TWO EXPLANATIONS OF HOW CLIMATE ALARMISTS MISUSE SCIENCE
Science

Posted 8 December 2014

Here are two explanations of ways in which science is being misused by climate alarmists to justify invalidated claims of dangerous anthropogenic "global warming".

The first, by Tom Harris, executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition, and published already by a number of newspapers in North America, may be accessed by this link here

The second is a paper by the Scientific Alliance, of UK, which is copied below.
