Will the Real Hockey Stick Please Stand Up?
by Jeff Id
I won’ t abuse you with my venting today. Mostly pictures. Pretty interesting ones I think. I used the CPS method today with actual proxies from M08. Instead of the infilled data with the fake hockey stick glued on the end I used the original original 1357 series before processing. I also chopped off the 95 Luterbacher series which aren’t really proxies, they are temperature. It didn’t make any big difference to the shape of graphs in my results but I don’t like em.

Our very own CO2Sceptics Piers Corbyn
and Hans Schreuder
appear in this "Independent" newspaper article as part of a group of sceptics or as the article implies "unbelievers", that include: David Bellamy, Ruth Lea, Nigel Lawson and Martin Durkin. This is a wooly attempt to try to appease the Independent readers that the campaign for "Man Made Climate Change" is still on track and that the opposition are mad not to toe the global warming line (lie). The article by Tim Walker to it's credit gives the "unbelievers" a platform in a paper that is called "The Independent" by name only.
Piers Corbyn: "The idea that climate change causes extreme weather is preposterous. The average number of landfall storms per decade in the US was higher between 1900 and 1960 than in the past 30 or so years. I've met scientists who've said I'm probably right, but if you're in a university funded to research global warming, you're not going to speak up.

NASA’s Spencer Tells Congress Global Warming Is Not a Crisis
Written By: Roy Spencer, Ph.D.
Regarding the currently popular theory that mankind is responsible for global warming, I am very pleased to deliver good news from the front lines of climate change research. Our latest research results, which I am about to describe, could have an enormous impact on policy decisions regarding greenhouse gas emissions.

This is yet another typical "Man Made Climate Change" article from The Guardian, it puts the case forward that Climate Taxes will be key in the reduction of "Global Warming". If the worlds economy was not bad enough, this proposal for additional taxation for a crisis that is "Man Made" in all and every sense, has become the modern day version of "The Emperor's New Clothes". Each President and Monarch will be seen to wear the new costume of "saving the world", but instead of the sniggering and laughter from their subjects as a result of their foolishness, many thousands of people will die from starvation and poverty in this pursuit of madness.

All global warming man-made?
by Paul D. Hokanson
This letter is for those who cheered when Joe Biden scoffed and practically ridiculed Sarah Palin regarding her answer to the global warming question in last week’s debate. When asked her opinion about global warming, Palin’s response was that part of the problem has to do with man-made activity but also that cyclical temperature changes contribute to global warming. Palin went on to offer some very constructive solutions to the problem.

The K7RA Solar Update
A familiar sight appeared this week, as a sunspot emerged for one day, then was gone. Based on its magnetic polarity and high position in our Sun's southern hemisphere, sunspot 1003 was a new Solar Cycle 24 sunspot; like all the other recent sunspots, it was short lived.

Huge sigh of relief as sunspot appears
Dr Timothy Patterson, director of the Geosciences Centre at Carleton University, has found "excellent correlations" between solar fluctuations and global temperature, whereas he says there are no such correlations with the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere. Patterson says there is no surprise in this, since "the sun is the ultimate source of energy on this planet".

In August we had an email from "Lucy Skywalker" stating that she had done a U-turn in her understanding of AGW. This was posted on our link greenworldtrust.org.uk
. Her site is about the best available to display so much information into a very small but very readable area.
We dropped "Lucy" a line this week and asked her for the latest update in her investigation concerning CO2 scepticism, we make no apologies to show you her un-edited reply. You will see that "Lucy" has so much enthusiasm in all she does to try and inform people about the misinformation concerning "Man Made Climate Change".

Support for Global Warming Alarmism Continues to Wane
Dr. Muriel Newman
Around the world, controversy over climate change continues to grow. Contrary to what the politicians tell us, there is no consensus of scientific thought on whether there is a man-made component to global warming. The science is certainly not settled.
