Global Warming House of Cards Finally Falls

Only the staunchest nutjobs will continue to herald this bullshit as truth now, after the revelations in this article, multiple climate scandals, and recent admissions that the science IS NOT settled by disgraced CRU scientist Phil Jones.

In a related story, see this blog entry (and news link) on other problems with worldwide temperature measurements.

Will the U.S. media take up these stories, or will they bury them? The world is watching, MSNBC. Though that didn't stop you with the Monica Lewinsky scandal either.

The IPCC faces similar criticisms from Ross McKitrick, professor of economics at the University of Guelph, Canada, who was invited by the panel to review its last report.

The experience turned him into a strong critic and he has since published a research paper questioning its methods.

“We concluded, with overwhelming statistical significance, that the IPCC’s climate data are contaminated with surface effects from industrialisation and data quality problems. These add up to a large warming bias,” he said.

Such warnings are supported by a study of US weather stations co-written by Anthony Watts, an American meteorologist and climate change sceptic.

His study, which has not been peer reviewed, is illustrated with photographs of weather stations in locations where their readings are distorted by heat-generating equipment.
