In the aftermath of the failed Copenhagen Climate Conference, revelations of serious corruption in IPCC science, and unseasonable weather in much of the world, the general public and increasingly more media are starting to take a more meaningful view of climate change. Opinion polls in many countries show that an increasing fraction of the public now regards the past century’s warming as being primarily due to either natural or unknown causes, and that a human-induced, or ‘anthropogenic,’ global warming (AGW) catastrophe is improbable. Not surprisingly, there has also been a related erosion in public support for expensive ‘greenhouse gas’ reduction policies.
Consequently, some mainstream media, especially in the United Kingdom, are displaying a new openness to alternative points of view concerning the supposedly ‘settled’ science of global climate change. They are gradually taking notice of the thousands of climate experts who have endorsed open letters, petitions, and other declarations disagreeing with the IPCC’s alarmist conclusions. Some reporters and government representatives have even suggested ‘skeptics’ be invited to take a more active role in future IPCC Assessment Reports and government climate hearings.
These advances have led some observers to confidently assert that the collapse of the global warming scare is imminent and that the war for science-based climate policy is all but won.
