Professor Michael Kelly, emeritus Professor of Technology at Cambridge University, was one of 43 Fellows of the Royal Society in UK who in 2016 accused the RS of being dogmatic on the topic of climate change. Dr Kelly wrote about the challenge in the Mail on Sunday, and his article is relevant two years later in New Zealand in view of the complaint by members of the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition against the Royal Society of New Zealand alleging misleading statements in this country about causes of changes in climate.

Our planet has just experienced the most extreme two-year cooling event in a century. But where have you seen this reported anywhere in the mainstream media? You haven’t, even though the figures are pretty spectacular. As James Delingpole reports.
Climate change alarmism is based entirely on speculation, not on science. Alarmism per se is not a hoax, because people really believe it. But alarmism is driven by a repeated practice that is in fact a hoax. This common hoax is the presentation of speculative conclusions as though they were established scientific facts about the physical world. The standard definition of a hoax is a deliberate deception that is intended to fool a lot of people. The scientists and journalists who falsely report speculations as facts know perfectly well what they are doing, which makes what they do a hoax. Distinguished US analyst Dr David Wojick explains:

Sunday, April 22 will mark the 48th anniversary of Earth Day. A lot of concern about the planet’s future was generated back then and a passionate movement was launched that endures to this day. But is all the fear over a warming world justified? Here are five reasons not to freak out about manmade climate change this Earth Day.
Our Coalition chairman, Hon Barry Brill, has welcomed the tutorial produced by three eminent US professors to help a California judge gain an understanding of the arguments involved in the 'global warming' debate now known as 'climate change'(see items dated April 2 below).
Distinguished Canadian climate scientist, Professor Timothy Ball, explains why and how it is important to help ordinary people understand that claims of dangerous human-caused "global warming" is a hoax that will cost us billions of dollars and do nothing to change global temperatures.
Our Coalition’s energy spokesman, Bryan Leyland, has a guest post today in New Zealand’s most widely read blog, "Whale Oil Beef Hooked" setting out issues with the Royal Society of New Zealand in relation to departures from its Code of Ethics.
Expatriate Kiwi, Dr Michael J Kelly, Emeritus Prince Philip Professor of Technology at Cambridge University has responded to the NZ Productivity Commission's Draft Paper on "Low Emissions Economy", warning that not only are New Zealand's emissions minuscule in the global context, but the costs to...
Our Coalition has challenged the country’s premier scientific institution, the Royal Society of New Zealand (RSNZ) about the Society’s unsubstantiated alarmist claims of climate alarmism that have created a rift among scientists in New Zealand.

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...

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 wheth...
