602 Prof. Seitz 1996-08 PDF - 10KB Prof. Seitz to WSJ in 1996 Wall Street Journal
Description: This IPCC report, like all others, is held in such high regard largely because it has been peer-reviewed. That is, it has been read, discussed, modified and approved by an international body of experts. These scientists have laid their reputations on the line. But this [1995] report is not what it appears to be--it is not the version that was approved by the contributing scientists listed on the title page. In my more than 60 years as a member of the American scientific community, including service as president of both the National Academy of Sciences and the American Physical Society, I have never witnessed a more disturbing corruption of the peer-review process than the events that led to this IPCC report.

110 Hugh M Morgan 2007-09 PDF - 34KB carbon on trial Kooyong, Victoria
Description: "So the people of Australia, acting through their parliamentary representatives, have to make a decision on whether carbon is guilty of warming the planet and Australia, therefore, should embark on this unprecedented path of decarbonisation. It seems to me that carbon has not even had a proper trial. All of us are jurors in this case, and the decision we make will have profound economic consequences for us, but will have no impact on the climate. None. And it will certainly not impress the Indians and the Chinese who have made it abundantly clear, many times, that they are intent on modernising their economies as quickly and as economically as they can. They will be building thousands of coal-fired power stations over the next decade."

109 Vaclav Klaus 2008-01 PDF - 64KB Global Warming Alarmism is Unacceptable and Should be Confronted Portland, Oregon
Description: Vaclav Klaus is the current President of the Czech Republic. "The recent developments in the EU are, however, very problematic: we see and feel less freedom, less democracy, less sovereignty, more of regulation, and more of extensive government intervention than we had expected when communism collapsed. As if this wasn’t enough, in the recent years we came to witness yet another major attack on freedom and free markets, an attack based on environmentalism and – in particular – its global warming variant. The explicitly stated intentions of global warming activists are frightening. They want to change us, to change the whole mankind, to change human behavior, to change the structure and functioning of society, to change the whole system of values which has been gradually established during centuries. These intentions are dangerous and their consequences far-reaching. These people want to restrict our freedom. It is our duty to say NO."

610 Noel Sheppard 2008-04 PDF - 310KB SvendHendriksenInGreenland http://newsbusters.org
Description: When Global Warmingest-in-Chief Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize last year, the media's prideful gushing was so obvious it was almost sick-making. Now, six months later, a fellow Nobel Peace Prize recipient is part of a group asking the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change "admit that there is no observational evidence in measured data going back 22,000 years or even millions of years that CO2 levels (whether from man or nature) have driven or are driving world temperatures."

65 Dr David Evans 2008-07 PDF - 661KB MissingSignature http://sciencespeak.com
Description: "Each cause of global warming heats up the atmosphere in a distinctive pattern—its "signature". According to IPPC climate theory, the signature of carbon emissions and the signature of warming due to all causes during the recent global warming both include a prominent "hotspot" at about 10 – 12 km in the air over the tropics. But the observed warming pattern during the recent global warming contains no trace of any such hotspot. Therefore: 1. IPCC climate theory is fundamentally wrong. 2. To the extent that IPCC climate theory is correct in predicting a hotspot due to extra carbon dioxide, we know that carbon emissions did not cause the recent global warming."

113 Michael Kile 2008-09 PDF - 9KB Lesson from Lehman Brothers AFR 22Sept2008 Australian Financial Review
Description: "Witnessing the multi-billion dollar implosion of Wall Street's investment banking model sure ain't pretty. However, there's at least one positive outcome. Regulators now can prevent the meltdown of another suspect business model - carbon emissions trading. This growing sector is built on hubris potentially more toxic than securitised subprime mortgage debt, credit default swaps and short selling. Computer model scenarios of 'dangerous' climate change developed by a coterie of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientists have been accepted as valid without independent audit or regulatory review."

15 Christopher Booker 2008-10 PDF - 5KB BRITAIN'S GREAT WIND SCAM Sunday Telegraph (London)
Description: In a video for the British Wind Energy Association, the industry's chief lobby group, [Prime Minister Gordon] Brown claimed: "We are now getting 3 gigawatts of our electricity capacity from wind power, enough to power more than 1.5 million homes." This deliberately perpetuates the central confidence trick practised by the wind industry, by confusing "capacity" with the actual amount of electricity wind produces. In fact, as the Government's own figures show, wind turbines generate on average only 27 to 28 per cent, barely a quarter, of their "capacity".

Description: "Experts of the United Nations in regular reports publish data said to show that the Earth is approaching a catastrophic global warming, caused by increasing emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. However, observations of the Sun show that as for the increase in temperature, carbon dioxide is "not guilty" and as for what lies ahead in the upcoming decades, it is not catastrophic warming, but a global, and very prolonged, temperature drop."

13 Professor Bob Carter 2008-11 PDF - 58KB bob carter's Quadrant Article http://www.quadrant.org.au
Description: "The hypothesis of the IPCC was, and remains, that human greenhouse gas emissions (especially of carbon dioxide) are causing dangerous global warming. IPCC concentrates its analyses of climate change on only the last few hundred years, and has repeatedly failed to give proper weight to the geological context of the 150-year long instrumental record. When viewed in historical context, and assessed against empirical data, the greenhouse hypothesis fails. There is no evidence that late 20th century rates of emperature increase were unusually rapid or reached an unnaturally high peak; no human-caused greenhouse signal has been measured 3 or identified despite the expenditure since 1990 of many tens of billions of dollars searching for it; and global temperature, which peaked within the current natural cycle in 1998, has been declining since 2002 despite continuing increases in carbon dioxide emission."

9 Miranda Devine 2008-11 PDF - 9KB Beware the church of climate alarm Sydney Morning Herald
Description: "Climates always change," [Professor Ian Plimer] said. Our climate has changed in cycles over millions of years, as the orbit of the planet wobbles and our distance from the sun changes, for instance, or as the sun itself produces variable amounts of radiation. "All of this affects climate. It is impossible to stop climate change. Climates have always changed and they always will."

59 Ray Evans 2008-11 PDF - 3KB letter to SMH Sydney Morning Herald
Description: Ray Evans is Secretary of the Lavoisier Group. "The fundamental paradigm on which all of the IPCC’s climate models is based is that rising CO2 will, with the positive feedbacks built into their models, lead to increasing global temperatures. That this has not happened for a decade shows (amongst a host of other reasons) why their climate models, so laboriously constructed at such great cost to the taxpayer, are worthless."

Andrew Forster spoke to climate policy analyst Benny Peiser about the ‘big picture’ debate that could colour transport policy here Green pressure groups and opposition MPs may have welcomed the Government’s toughening up of the Climate Change Bill’s emissions reduction targets but for Benny Peiser it merely illustrates that Britain’s politicians have no grasp of reality when it comes to cutting emissions."

Well, no, actually they are not. Sea level rises since 1900 are of the order of 1-2mm a year, which is indistinguishable from tectonic movement, and the IPCC computer projections are simply completely wrong. The warmaholics argue that they have been able to model all of the complex processes occurring on the earth, below the oceans and in the atmosphere, and yet also admit in the same breath that they cannot predict the single biggest transfer of energy that dwarfs all others on the planet: ElNino."

Description: "I refer Senators, the media and the public to the former head of ABARE Dr Brian Fisher’s review of the Treasury modelling [of the government’s proposed Emissions Trading Scheme] which was commissioned by the Senate Select Committee on fuel and energy and released this week. He found that many of the really important conclusions reached by the Treasury modelling were basically out of the ballpark because the underlying assumptions were totally unrealistic. The modelling is only as good as the inputs that go in. And Dr Fisher has raised serious questions about the validity of those assumptions not least because the government won’t tell us how those key assumptions were arrived at and by whom. A cynical exercise in political manipulation has gone on here."

Remarkably, the subtle and nuanced language typical in such reports has been set aside. One of the five contributors compares computer climate modelling to ancient astrology. Others castigate the paucity of the US ground temperature data set used to support the hypothesis, and declare that the unambiguous warming trend from the mid-part of the 20th Century has ceased."

101 Tom Quirk 2009-02 PDF - 132KB Wind power as an energy source ON LINE opinion, Australia
Description: Discusses the efficiency and viability of wind turbines. "The intermittency of wind means that to supply an average of 6,000MW of power requires installing 20,000MW of wind power taking the average output of wind farms to be 30 per cent of installed capacity. For 2MW for a wind turbine, this is a building program of 10,000 wind turbine towers, that is two towers each day for 12 years. This would have to parallel the installation of 9,000MW of gas turbine generators. This is after allowing a 10 per cent reliability contribution for the 20.000MW of wind power. This program doubles the cost of supplying the extra energy from gas turbines alone. It is an increased expenditure of $34,000 million over 12 years! The present wind farm development has added a few hundred MW each year so the target does not look achievable either physically or financially."

"Suggestions that global temperature might pass a ‘tipping point’ and even go into a phase of ‘runaway global warming’ are an outcome of the flawed computer models and are not a realistic future scenario. The extensive oceans and the hydrological cycle are a natural constraint on global temperature and dangerous anthropogenic global warming is not a feasible outcome."

In addition, windmills all tend to be available at the same time, often causing a supply glut. This uncontrollable nature of wind generation is more serious once its share of supply becomes significant and this is reflected in a lower energy market price South Australian wind generators obtain."

Description: Discusses the economics of carbon reduction. "The world’s principal source of man-made greenhouse gases has always been prosperity. The recession makes that relationship easy to see: shuttered factories don’t spew carbon dioxide; the unemployed drive fewer miles and turn down their furnaces, air-conditioners, and swimming-pool heaters; struggling corporations and families cut back on air travel; even affluent people buy less throwaway junk."

Description: "Understanding climate-change is a work-in-progress; because the science is still very far from settled. However, [Antonio Mazzarella 2009, “Sun-climate linkage now confirmed”] makes a compelling case that it IS already sufficiently settled. It is too early – and the likely penalty (in terms of needless human misery) for error is too grave – for policymakers and planners to yet choose between a self-contained and primarily people-driven climate, and its natural antithesis. As the flow of satellite observations becomes a flood, the evidential support for a naturally-driven climate grows apace. The main underlying drivers of climate appear to be externally-linked in some way. Earth does not travel in an empty Universe."

"The Sun isn’t playing ball with the ‘global warmers’. Indeed, I expect one of our more rabid Labour ministers to come out any day now fatuously accusing the fading star of ‘global warming’ denial on a par with denying the effects of smoking or the link between HIV and AIDS. But one has to laugh. The sun is currently so inactive that even our ‘global warming’- obsessed media has been forced, through heavily rose-tinted sunglasses, to admit the phenomenon, rushing to add, of course, that this doesn’t mean that ‘global warming’ has halted, or that we must stop mending our evil ways."

Description: "Professor Phil Jones, the fellow in charge of maintaining the CRU data set, told an Australian researcher a few years back that he refused to publicly share his statistics. “We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?” The idea that scientific progress rests completely on the constant testing and retesting, verifying and refuting, of studies, seems not to be shared by Mr. Jones, even though this particular data set had massive implications for policymaking in pretty well every country on the planet."

Such anthropogenic sources account for less than 5% of the present atmosphere, compared to the major input/output from natural sources (~95%). Hence, anthropogenic CO2 is too small to be a significant or relevant factor in the global warming process, particularly when comparing with the far more potent greenhouse gas water vapor."

This is crucially important in Australia, a nation that derives 80% of its electricity from coal and would suffer an economic catastrophe under any version of "cap and trade" energy rationing. It's also important for us here in America, because it shows that it is possible to counter the all-pervasive global warming propaganda campaign."

Description: "The [British] Met Office's computer is programmed to believe that the chief driver of climate change is the rising level of CO2 – hence its predilection for forecasting barbecue summers and warmest-ever years. But in recent years, as we all know, while CO2 levels continue to rise, the trend of global temperatures has failed to follow suit. This might suggest that the basic assumption on which the computer models are programmed cannot be entirely correct. Is it not perhaps time we pensioned off all those "activists", scrapped their expensive computers and went back to putting some proper "Met men" in charge of forecasting our weather?"

"Next Thursday marks the first anniversary of one of the most remarkable events ever to take place in the House of Commons. For six hours MPs debated what was far and away the most expensive piece of legislation ever put before Parliament. The Climate Change Bill laid down that, by 2050, the British people must cut their emissions of carbon dioxide by well over 80 per cent. Short of some unimaginable technological revolution, such a target could not possibly be achieved without shutting down almost the whole of our industrialised economy, changing our way of life out of recognition."

What counts is the countries that join any scheme and the targets they set.

So the effect of adding carbon dioxide is smaller than the alarmists want you to believe, by a factor of about 6. By 2100 we might see temperatures rise by 0.5°C, not the 3.3°C predicted by the alarmists and their models."

Climate change is natural, and warmer periods occur without human CO2 emissions being the cause. Just looking at the last decade, world temperature is falling as CO2 rises — big emitters China and India have been stocking up their coal sheds. Increases in CO2 rarely coincide with rises in the Earth’s temperature — so how can CO2 be the driver of global warming, let alone climate change?"

Description: "Global warming was an academic Ponzi scheme. Its leading proponents were mini-Madoffs, peddling a vision of global catastrophe to gullible activists, bureaucrats and policymakers. The vision was so vast, the fear it inspired so pervasive, that it seized popular imagination, aided ably by hucksters like former Vice President Al Gore and his science-fiction feature film "An Inconvenient Truth." But like any Ponzi scheme, global warming only worked if everyone kept investing and no one looked at the books. Once the truth came out - of manipulated findings, phony data, rigged peer-review processes and intimidation of skeptics - the scheme began to collapse."

Description: "The absence of technical and scientific grounding amongst the chattering classes has created a vacuum, filled with an unquestioning faith in the Good Guys. Scientists are untainted by human foibles, such as intellectual corruption. Their workings are as mysterious as the telepathy they (doubtless) use to communicate their concepts, and their processes, such as peer-review, remove all room for doubt, leaving only a residue of gleaming truth. Such is science viewed from Islington. David Aaronovitch typified this amazement that anyone could doubt the “consensus’. It seems inconceivable, to the commentariat, that scientists have prejudices, too, and that the publication process (peer review) is not some Kitemark of quality but is vulnerable to being hijacked. All of which is demonstrated in the Climategate files."

Not only does the preliminary report indict a broader network of conspirators, but it also challenges the very mechanism by which global temperatures are measured, published, and historically ranked.

Description: The anthropogenic wasting of fossil fuel CO2 to the atmosphere shows no relation with the temperature changes even in an annual basis. The absence of immediate relation between CO2 and temperature is evidence that rising its mix ratio in the atmosphere will not imply more absorption and time residence of energy over the Earth surface.

In a world where climate change has always been the norm, climate change is now taken as punishment for sinful levels of consumption.

The claim in question is not just wrong, but based on fabricated evidence. Showing that the claim is fabricated is easy: it suffices merely to quote the section of the report, since no supporting evidence is given. But unsupported guesses may turn out to be true. Showing the IPCC claim is also false took some mundane statistical work, but the results were clear. Once the numbers were crunched and the paper was written up, I began sending it to science journals. That is when the runaround began. Having published several against-the-flow papers in climatology journals I did not expect a smooth ride, but the process eventually became surreal."

Secondly, there is no hurry. Even after 23 years doing nothing to address the imagined problem, and even if the IPCC has not exaggerated CO2’s warming effect fourfold, the world will be just 1 F° warmer than it is today. If the IPCC has exaggerated fourfold, the world can do nothing for almost a century before global temperature rises by 1 F°.

Description: "Over the past six months or so there has been a remarkable change at both official agencies and research institutions in attitudes of the believers in the dangerous warming thesis. Reflecting the Copenhagen flop and the Climategate exposure of uncertainties within research bodies, the previous out of hand dismissals of sceptical views have moved to an acknowledgement that those views should not be ignored and that uncertainty does exist."

Description: The dramatic reduction in methane gas emissions from the natural gas pipeline system is a real example of an anthropogenic effect. While the state of understanding may not yet be sufficiently robust to allow longterm policy decisions, already the assumed adverse future consequences of atmospheric methane increases are called into question. In fact, measurements over the last fifteen years fail to indicate a reason why action relating to methane from industrial or agricultural activity is justified. While methane variability remains restricted to natural causes, the best policy is to do nothing.

Often, they refused to be quoted at all, saying they feared for their funding, or they feared other recriminations from climate scientists in the doomsayer camp.

Description: It is also obvious then that the statement by the Royal Society that it would take “millennia” for atmospheric CO2 to return to levels at preindustrial times upon a (theoretical) complete and sudden cessation of all manmade CO2 release to the atmosphere cannot be true. If the CO2 were to stay in the atmosphere for millennia, why has its level in the atmosphere not doubled in the last 15 years, or gone up tenfold-plus over the last 100 hundred years?

Every atom of carbon extracted from the air by the green plant eventually returns to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, the plant food. This is the cycle of life. It is therefore scientific incompetence or deliberate fraud by government climate alarmists to claim that consuming ethanol in cars is good and should be subsidised but consuming the same plant material in cows must be rationed and taxed.

This idea of rapid loss of ice is based on the concept of an ice sheet sliding down an inclined plane on a base lubricated by meltwater, which is itself increasing because of global warming. In reality the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets occupy kilometre-deep basins. If sliding were operative they could only slide into the basin.

The fact that the developed world went into hysterics over changes in global mean temperature anomaly of a few tenths of a degree will astound future generations.

Description: Normal science progresses through the collection of observations (or measurements), the conjecture of hypotheses, the making of predictions, and then through the usage of new observations, the modification of the hypotheses accordingly (either ruling them out, or improving them). In the global warming "science", this is not the case.

Description: The reality is a long way from the way that the IPCC describes itself. The IPCC claims that it employs the top scientists in the field; it uses only peer-reviewed material; its staff are independent and impartial; its operations are transparent; its procedures for review are rigorous and free of conflicts of interest; and its role is to present objective scientific advice to policymakers, not to advocate policy responses. None of these claims is true.

In science, data trumps theory. If data and theory disagree, as they do here, people of a more scientific bent go with the data and scrap the theory. But in politics we usually go with authority figures, who in this case are the government climate scientists and the western governments—and they strongly support the theory.

Description: If one assumes all warming over the past century is due to anthropogenic greenhouse forcing, then the derived sensitivity of the climate to a doubling of CO2 is less than 1C. The higher sensitivity of existing models is made consistent with observed warming by invoking unknown additional negative forcings from aerosols and solar variability as arbitrary adjustments. Given the above, the notion that alarming warming is 'settled science' should be offensive to any sentient individual, though to be sure, the above is hardly emphasized by the IPCC.
