Granny gets it right...AT LAST...

... repeated signals from the the NZ Herald indicate a new degree of realism and respect for the AGW sceptical cause. This editorial this morning calls for new leadership with the IPCC; criticises our own climate researchers and recorders, and the local and international network of green left agitators including the WWF, keen to make political capital from the fable of so called "global warming"...

Climate debate needs facts, not anecdotes...More than one mistake has been found recently in the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, set up by the United Nations to provide authoritative reports on global warming, and the errors are hardly peripheral...If the Himalayan debacle was bad enough, the panel references to disappearing ice in the Andes, the European Alps and Africa are even more embarrassing. They turn out to have been based on a student dissertation and an article in a climbing magazine...It is not encouraging to hear a New Zealand contributor to the report, climate scientist Jim Salinger, defending it on the grounds that it accords with interviews from somebody as illustrious as the late Sir Edmund Hillary...The IPCC's reputation is not helped now by the argument of authority its supporters have employed for so long. Criticism was dismissed as conceit in the face of a "scientific consensus" that by implication could not be wrong. Well the consensus has been wrong, or at least careless on several points...Governments need dispassionate scientific assessments of it, not anecdotes, unchecked papers and agitators' propaganda. The IPCC urgently needs new leadership and a return to strict scientific rigour if it hopes to be taken seriously again...more here...

What is missing from this editorial of course, is a mea culpa from the Herald for giving warmist hysteria such predominant cover for so long. What is also needed now are questions to the academies of science, including scientific publications of renown, who have colluded in this attempt to deceive the world. There is much more to come, and as the scandal unfolds fraud charges will need to be addressed...

...and The Washington Times editorial simply says...the man-caused catastrophic global warming theory is dead, and it needs to be buried. Evidence had been mounting for years that there were problems with the global warming model; most telling was that the globe refused to warm up. Carbon emissions continued apace, but the world began cooling. This is why true believers abandoned the "global warming" brand name and tried to shift the debate to the more ambiguous label "climate change," which is something the rest of us like to refer to as "weather." More, here...

...and this from the Irish Examiner...Careers, reputations, and bureaucracies now depend on there being a climate crisis. Al Gore collects a $200,000 fee for presentations, and that is possibly minor compared to what he will earn in carbon trading fees from Generation Investment Management, which he co-founded and which is an investor in the Chicago Climate Exchange. An article in The Wall Street Journal last October suggested that carbon permits could become the largest commodity market in the world, growing to as much as $3 trillion by 2030. Bernie Madoff got away with his Ponzi scheme for so long because people were afraid to question what he was doing. Surely we should be questioning the so-called global warming scam. More here...

Gday Mister, I'll have a look at that. Thanks !

This is just like faith healing.

Poor Tuesday

Well, don't know about that Nessa. I guess we should have more faith in our scientists, but they seem to have let us down a lot.

The "no you can't see the evidence of our crimes" attitude is alive at Penn State also.

The USA media seem a bit slow on the uptake compared to their UK counterparts. Even Anthony Watts has been approached by the BBC for pointers to UK sceptical scientists. (Although on reflection, Monckton, Lawson and others could no doubt provide scientific ammo.)

The U.S. media is still reveling in have created and sold Obamandius--even as they realize they had Marty Feldman get the brain.

Ayrdale, there is a response to your note about "Some Like It Hot" that you may find interesting.

I could easily be distracted away from my life's work (exposing the lies of the green/left) by material like that.

Thanks CB.
