Ahh McLean, you’ve done it again

John McLean, the guy who kept guiding Andrew Bolt off cliffs, has this time taken Bob Carter and Chris de Freitas with him. As tamino explains, they say that recent warming trends can be attributed to natural variation, but their analysis removed the trend from the data. See also McLean’s defence and Robert Grumbine’s lucid…

Senator Fielding has rejected the science and now claims: Over the last 15 years, global temperatures haven’t been going up and, therefore, there hasn’t been in the last 15 years a period of global warming, Clearly there was never any chance of convincing someone who can look at a graph like this one and not…

Last week week Senator Fielding met with the Minister for Climate Change, Penny Wong to discuss the link between global warming and greenhouse gas. While Fielding claimed to have an ‘open mind’, this was rather undercut by his bringing four denialists to the meeting: Bob Carter, David Evans Stewart Franks and Bill Kininmonth. Naturally, The…

Windschuttle, hoaxed again?

Some folks suggested the Windschuttle hoax was too subtle, that the claims in the hoax article were not outrageously false. Well it seems that Windschuttle has been tricked into publishing an article by one Bob Carter which has the outrageously false thing covered: First, there has been no recent global warming in the common meaning…

Shorter Heartland Conference

Allow me to shorten Heartland’s 2009 International Conference on Climate Change for you. Joseph L. Bast: Bray’s survey shows that there is no consensus. Vaclav Klaus: Environmentalists have a secret plan to “return mankind centuries back”. Richard Lindzen: It is an error to say “It’s the sun!” Tom McClintock: Al Gore is fat. And, it’s…

The Australian‘s War on Science 33

Today’s Australian has a piece by Bob Carter predicting global cooling Global atmospheric temperature reached a peak in 1998, has not warmed since 1995 and, has been cooling since 2002. Some people, still under the thrall of the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change’s disproved projections of warming, seem surprised by this cooling trend, even to…

The Australian‘s War on Science XXVII

The Australian seems to have realized that their delight over Rudd’s ETS was a giveaway and they are trying to provide some cover. Today we have a piece from Henry Ergas opposing the scheme: As for the emissions trading scheme, if the main emitters are not reducing their emissions — as the Government’s 5 per…

A picture is worth a thousand words

Bob Carter has managed to get a whole bunch of people to sign a letter touting his warming ended in in 1998 claim. Here’s what they signed: there has been no net global warming since 1998. That the current temperature plateau follows a late 20th-century period of warming is consistent with the continuation today of…

ABC makes lemonade

John Quiggin details how the ABC made lemonade from the lemon that is the Great Global Warming Swindle. You can see the video of Tony Jones’ questioning of Martin Durkin here, or read the transcript here. Durkin was unable to offer any defence of his misrepresentation of the science. David Jones, Andrew Watkins, Karl Braganza…

Hey, remember how all the global warming skeptics used to say that warming wasn’t happening because the satellite data didn’t show a warming trend. Until in 2005 when they found a mistake in the satellite data and what do you know, it did show warming. And they stopped using that argument? Well Bob Carter isn’t…
