CLIMATE UNCERTAINTY: CONTRAST BETWEEN WHAT SCIENTISTS SAY IN PUBLIC & IN PRIVATE
Science

Posted 30 November 2017

How dependable is climate science? Global warming mitigation policies depend on the credibility and integrity of climate science. In turn, that depends on a deterministic model of the climate system in which it is possible to quantify the role of carbon dioxide (CO2) with a high degree of confidence. This essay by UK analyst Rupert Darwall explores the contrast between scientists' expressions of public confidence and private admissions of uncertainy on critical aspects of the science that undergird the scientific consensus.(Foreword by US scientist, Judith Curry).

AUSTRALIAN SCIENTIST: DATA DOES NOT SUPPORT CLAIMS THAT CO2 CAUSES DANGEROUS GLOBAL WARMING
Science

Posted 23 November 2017

Dr Ian Flanigan, an Australian graduate in chemistry, explains why claims that carbon dioxide is a significant cause of global warming cannot be supported if the scientific method is applied. "Let us do the impermissible and look at the science behind the question of whether carbon dioxide is causing dangerous global warming. The scientific method for investgating a new idea is to pose two falsifiable hypotheses: the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis. The null hypothesis tests the new theory that the scientist is bringing to bear on the issue....A hypothesis can never be proved by this method but it remains viable only as long as it remains consistent with the data. You must not cherry-pick your data; the hypothesis must be consistent with all of the available data."

NEW PSEUDOSCIENCE SEEKS TO FORCE DEVELOPED NATIONS COMPENSATE 'CLIMATE VICTIMS'
Economics

Posted 19 November 2017

American analyst Dr David Wojick  warns of a new term in pseudoscience: attribution research. "In UN-speak it is called simply 'loss and damage.' This is the unfounded idea that people adversely affected by bad weather are 'climate victims' and as such they should be compensated by the developed countries that supposedly caused the weather to be bad. The potential amounts involved are staggering so it is no under that the developed countries have steadfastly resisted the idea in UN climate negotiations...We are talking about untold trillions of dollars. The Bonn negotiations have produced a draft decision on loss and damage which takes new steps forward. The ste-s are small but still dangerous...they open the door for what is called 'attribution research' to enter. Indeed, attribution is all about the juiced up models showing more bad weather. Since no two models agree on where the bad stuff will occur and there are over 100, all run by government agencies, they can always find one that predicts whatever happens. The attribution game cannot lose because it cheats well."

SWEDISH SEA LEVELS EXPERT PROVES FIJI SEA LEVELS STABLE FOR LAST 50-70 YEARS
Science

Posted 14 November 2017

In an Open Letter to the Prime Minister of Fiji, Frank Bainamara, who is presiding at COP23 (U.N. Conference of Parties on Climate Change) in Bonn, Professor Nils-Axel Morner, the distinguished Swedish scientist and authority on world sea levels, who has been leader of the Fiji New Sea Level Project, 2016-17, writes: "We have been in your lovely country and undertaken a detailed sea level analysis, which beyond doubts indicates that sea level is not at all in a rising mode, but has remained perfectly stable over the last 50-70 years. Hence all threats of an approaching general sea level flooding is totally unfounded."

BIOSPHERE PRODUCTIVITY UP 14% SINCE 1982 THANKS TO CARBON DIOXIDE
Science

Posted 14 November 201

"Extra CO2 in the atmosphere has a beneficial effect on plant life. CO2 is a plant fertiliser. Recent studies have documented the world-wide greening effect of the extra CO2.....The biosphere’s productivity has increased by about 14% since 1982. This is good news for feeding the billions."  An artice by our Coalition member, Dr Gerrit J Van Der Lingen, who also explains how and why extra CO2 reduces plant demands for water.
