Scientists Suggest that Swindle Fudged Data

Two more scientists have stepped forward to criticize the U.K. TV documentary, the Great Global Warming Swindle , for misleading viewers with unsubstantiated conclusions about climate change.

Dr. Eigil Friis-Christensen, Director of the Danish National Space Center, and Nathan Rive, a Research Fellow and the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO) in Oslo, Norway, say the only way the program could have produced at least one of its graphs (inset) was by making up the data.

Ooooh -- that sinking feeling!

While the continents and oceans have absorbed much of the carbon dioxide that humanity has pumped into the atmosphere so far, they won't be able to keep up with the expected rise in greenhouse-gas emissions over the next several decades.  Recent studies suggest that current estimates about natural absorption are too optimistic: Earth's climate by century's end could be on average up to 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F.) hotter than current “business as usual” projections suggest.

The Toyota Technique: Talking Out of Both Sides of Your Mouth

Toyota, the world's new number one automaker has been winning praise far and wide for the fuel efficiency of its fleet. And Toyota Vice President Josephine Cooper said in a recent TV interview that “Toyota has long supported increasing fuel economy standards for vehicles, which means increasing CAFE [Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency] standards.”

This would be noble if it were true.

National Post Promotes Singer's Dubious Attack on Al Gore's Mentor

If there is an opportunity anywhere in the “Cosmos” to deny the science of climate change – the evidence notwithstanding – The National Post’s Lawrence Solomon seems intent upon finding it.

In a 19-part series on climate change “Deniers,” Solomon has canvassed the science world for people whose work challenges the consensus that human-produced CO2 is changing the climate in a potential disastrous way. Fair enough; fringe voices are often interesting. But on several occasions, Solomon has let his enthusiasm get the better of him, identifying as deniers people who are on record as agreeing with the scientific consensus (here, here and especially here).

Now, Solomon has disinterred one of the most infamous attacks not only on climate science but on the reputation of a renowned climate scientist, Dr. Roger Revelle.
