STOP PRESS !

...the new UK science czar (what happened to David King ?) has just admitted, in the London Times...The impact of global warming has been exaggerated by some scientists and there is an urgent need for more honest disclosure of the uncertainty of predictions about the rate of climate change, according to the Government’s chief scientific adviser. John Beddington was speaking to The Times in the wake of an admission by the IPCC that it grossly overstated the rate at which Himalayan glaciers were receding.
Professor Beddington said that climate scientists should be less hostile to sceptics who questioned man-made global warming. He condemned scientists who refused to publish the data underpinning their reports. He said that public confidence in climate science would be improved if there were more openness about its uncertainties, even if that meant admitting that sceptics had been right on some hotly-disputed issues.

He said: “I don’t think it’s healthy to dismiss proper scepticism. Science grows and improves in the light of criticism. There is a fundamental uncertainty about climate change prediction that can’t be changed.”

Al Gore: “I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is.” WRONG

Sir John Houghton: first Chairman of the IPCC ..."Unless we speak about disasters, no-one will listen to us..." WRONG...add your favourite alarmist in the comments below...

The problem the warmist cretins have is that the science around it won't grow, the more light is shone on it, the more deceit and bullshit is unearthed.

A real tipping point though MK.

If the rush to save the planet is officially over, so is the big green party, so is the hysterical alarmism of fruit loops like HRH and Al Gore et al.

Have another pint of chartreuse on me...

...to capture the public imagination,we have to offer up some scary scenarios,make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have.Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective,and being honest."
