IPCC Climate Science Failure Requires Someone to Blame

The Impact Group observed that Canada collects "less climate science data per-square-kilometer of any other major country." Anne Thompson <a href="<a href="http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/02/13/oh-canada/" target="_blank">blames</a> the political government, but it was the bureuacracy of Environment Canada and the IPCC that caused the problems when they decided to use science for a political agenda.

Important But Little Known “Earth” Scientists

Three scientists from the beginning of the 20th century had a profound impact on our view and understanding of the world and climate, yet are virtually unknown. All three saw their ideas challenged in the appropriate scientific way, but have withstood attempts to disprove them. Despite this, the public is generally unaware of their work and its implications.

Gradualism: Creeping Corruption of Climate Science and Society?

Barack Obama was forced to challenge the cardinal rule of stealth politics: Don’t do anything too extreme or too quickly. This prompted him to bypass the legislative process and use executive orders to achieve his revolution. Given more time, he could have relied on gradualism, the process by which people slowly drift into bizarre patterns of behavior.

Rising Food Prices Threaten Obama’s Political Base

Politicians battled over social issues and allowed the economy to spiral out of control while a series of events were pushing food prices higher and higher. It affects everyone, but hurts middle- and lower-income the most. Historically, it’s the issue that brought governments to their knees.

Ad Hominem

An acquaintance said I must feel vindicated now that the extent of the corruption in climate science is exposed. The answer is no, because I knew all along there would be no pleasure in “I told you so”. The damage done to climate science, science, and environmentalism is serious.

Corruption of Climate Science Has Created 30 Lost Years

Traditionally, the older scientists held to the prevailing wisdom and were challenged by the new, skeptical graduates looking for wider answers. In climatology, the opposite has happened. The so-called skeptics challenging the prevailing wisdom are the professors who have researched and taught the subject for 30 years or longer. Their knowledge is much wider than that of the new young scientists because climate science has stagnated for thirty years.

Atmospheric Aerosols: Another Major IPCC Omission

Political whitewash of the corrupted climate science of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) illustrates the completely political nature of the issue. Indeed, the Chairman of the British Parliament investigating Phil Jones and the CRU specifically said they would not look at the science. If they had, they would see the extensive and outrageous scientific errors, manipulations of data, and omissions of large areas.
