Put the science where your mouth is

“If he [Bob Carter] has any evidence that [global warming over the past 100 years] is a natural variablilty he should publish through the peer review process,” said Graeme Pearman, a former former CSIRO climate scientist. “That is what the rest of us have to do.”

A well-stated and simple point refuting the words of the well-known and very vocal global warming denier Bob (RM) Carter. Often at DSBlog we have quipped that if the so-called “skeptics” are so “skeptical” why don't they get into a lab and prove it. Last time I checked, that's what scientists do. Anything else is just arm-chair quarterbacking.

Former White House official doctored global-warming reports to undercut scientific findings

The official made 181 changes in three climate reports to emphasize uncertainties surrounding the science of climate change and undermine widespread conclusions that man-made emissions are warming earth. Shortly thereafter, the official, a former oil-industry lobbyist, left the White House to work at Exxon Mobil Corp.

The Self-Serving Environmentalist

It gets increasingly difficult to assume sincerity on the part of Bjorn Lomborg, the self-styled Skeptical Environmentalist. Lomborg is an economist by training and an industry apologist by inclination. On climate change, especially, he has marshalled one argument after another to excuse industry - or government - from taking any action whatsoever against a threat that even he acknowleges (“Man-made climate change is, of course, real, and constitutes a serious problem” ).

Flattery and Fallacies

A DeSmog detractor has created two new webpages which are the most flattering and fallacious of anything I've seen in ages.

First, our intrepid critic has created a list of “Climate Fascists” in which he included my name with the likes of Al Gore, Arnie Schwarzenegger, Jim Hansen, James Lovelock, Michael Mann, Nicholas Stern and Tim Flannery. (I'm so proud, I have taken a screenshot to show my kids.)

Don’t “cry wolf” on climate-change risks, scientists say

Two leading UK climate researchers say some of their peers are “overplaying” the global warming message and risk confusing the public about the threat. Both hold the mainstream view that human activity is the cause of climate change, but they think catastrophism and “Hollywoodisation” of weather and climate actually undermine the scientific truth.
