New Scientist: Sea Ice Increases Due to Global Warming
by James Lewis
You gotta hand it to the global warming crowd. They have mind-bending gall.
New Scientist, which used to be a good pop science magazine, now quotes a NASA scientist saying:

A Spotless Sun and the Coming Ice Age
by Alan Caruba
There’s a wonderful irony in the fact that, back in the 1970s, the Greens were issuing warnings and even writing books about the coming Ice Age. They would abandon this issue, based in well-known and accepted solar science, in favor of a vast international hoax alleging man-made global warming.

Recalling that people such as Robert F. Kennedy have called climate skeptics “traitors”, David Suzuki calls for their jailing, the Grist website called for Nuremburg trials for them, NASA’s Dr. Jim Hansen calling for their trials for treason, along with the habitual insults from Al Gore, its been difficult for anyone to respectfully dissent. It’s been difficult to stick to the rules of hard science, by demanding evidence and replication, both of which require questioning but are often followed by insults and threats.

Don't let the facts spoil a good story
by Ben Goldacre
Here is a cautionary tale for anyone working in research. "Captain Cook and Lord Nelson seem unlikely figureheads in the fight against climate change alarmists," said the Sun. "Lord Nelson and Captain Cook's ship logs question climate change theories," announced the Telegraph. Oh that's handy. So perhaps we can just keep on burning oil regardless then? "The ships' logs of great maritime figures such as Lord Nelson and Captain Cook have cast new light on climate change by suggesting that global warming may not be an entirely man-made phenomenon."

Climate change chicanery
by Christopher Booker
Recent events have seen the scare campaign over global warming descend to the level of a Monty Python sketch.
Much publicity was given, for instance, to Lewis Gordon Pugh, who set out to paddle a kayak to the Pole to demonstrate the vanishing of the Arctic ice. At 80.5 degrees north, still 600 miles short of his goal, he met with ice so thick that he and his fossil-fuelled support ship had to turn back.

OPINION: True nature of climate change 'highly uncertain'
by TOM HARRIS & JOHN MCLEAN
John Woods, Director of Friends of the Earth Northern Ireland, asserts in his September 11 opinion piece: "The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which draws together the work of over 2,500 scientists, has concluded that most of the increase in global temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the increase in greenhouse gases from human activity."

Hockey Stick? What Hockey Stick?
by Lord Monckton
How alarmist "scientists" falsely abolished the Mediaeval Period.
An extraordinary series of postings at www.climateaudit.org, the deservedly well trafficked website of the courageous and tenacious Canadian statistician Steve McIntyre, is a remarkable indictment of the corruption and cynicism that is rife among the alarmist climate scientists favored by the UN’s discredited climate panel, the IPCC.

Debate must replace scaremongering of green climate alarmists
by Sammy Wilson, DUP MLA
For the first time, Environment Minister Sammy Wilson spells out his scepticism about man-made climate change, in an exclusive article for the NewsLetter.Co.Uk
At the height of the floods recently, when those whose homes had been destroyed were trying to clean up the mess, the councils were trying to get emergency payments processed and departments were assessing what lessons could be learned from the events, all the Green Party could do was prattle on about climate change.

Emissions not making rivers run dry
by Stewart Franks
IS the ongoing drought in the Murray-Darling Basin affected by climate change? The simple answer is that there is no evidence that CO2 has had any significant role. Like it or not, that is the science.
