Tim Ball Death Threats

In another piece of history for which the prevaricating professor offers no documentation, the Telegraph reports that Tim Ball says he has received five death threats “since raising concerns about the degree to which man was affecting climate change.”

For the record, The DeSmogBlog hopes that no harm comes to Tim Ball, now or in the warm future. The longer he lives, the more evidence of anthropogenic climate change he is forced to witness, the more complete will be his humiliation.

Friends of Science Lives!

The Calgary-based industry front group Friends of Science (FOS), moribund since a Globe and Mail story revealed last year that FOS funding came largely from the oil and gas industry, has resurfaced promoting an “annual luncheon ” at which Carleton Professor Tim Patterson will offer a lecture entitled “The Sun as the Primary Driver of Climate Change?”

If any DSBlog readers attend, please ask Dr. Patterson why all his solar forcing graphs end in 1980. (See next post for the answer.)

Solar Co-relation to Temperature Debunked

I hadn't seen this paper before, but it sets out clearly the (self-?) deception necessary to believe that the sun produced the current round of global warming.

In fact, the “almost perfect” corelation between solar activity and temperature that the National Post reported last week was based on faulty data - and has since been dismissed in any case.

Carl Wunsch Dismisses Channel 4 Fiction

Those who were wondering how someone as reputable as Dr. Carl Wunsch could have wound up on the UK Channel 4 “special” called The Great Global Warming Swindle now have their answer. He was tricked.

AP: Coming IPCC Report on Impacts Is Grim

Hundreds of millions of people will not have enough water within a couple of decades as the harmful effects of global warming already start to appear, top scientists will say next month. At the same time, tens of millions of people will be flooded out of their homes each year as the Earth reels from rising temperatures and sea levels, according to portions of a draft of the coming IPCC report on climate impacts obtained by The Associated Press.
