More Stern

It looks now rather unlikely that I’ll bother read much more Stern, and will instead lazily rely on others. Tim Worstall seems to be doing some reading, and (surprise!) doesn’t believe Sterns economic numbers. SR is getting lots of good press at the moment. I do rather wonder if it will survive in the long…

Peiser

For those old enough to remember the Oreskes-Peiser controversy, Deltoid makes interesting reading.

Le Stern Nouveau est arrive!

Though of course I havent read the whole thing or anywhere close. I wonder if anyone ever will. Maybe it will be fun reading for Christmas! Or maybe not… Looking at

IPCC down…

The IPCC TAR has gone awol. Try http://www.grida.no/climate/ipcc_tar/wg1/index.htm . OTOH http://www.grida.no/climate/ipcc_tar/ is still there. How odd.

More Stern leaking

It seems to be open season on pre-posts on the Stern Review, so I’ll pick some bits out of the Beebs coverage. To start with: Even worse, these costs will not be shared evenly. There will be a disproportionate burden on the poorest countries. I’m sure this is meant to make us all feel guilty.…

Daniels half-term homework included seeing a Tudor building, which we only discovered rather late… Sunday in fact. But since it was a lovely day, perhaps the last of a rather extended summer (so I sneaked down to the end of the garden before lunch to remove the Bayvarol strips from the hives, it being probably…

Cold weather deaths…

From the Grauniad: Cold weather’s 25,000 deaths toll is scandal, say charities – so bring on global warming, they said. Except, of course, they didn’t. The article doesn’t even mention global warming. But if people die in heatwaves its all rather different. From the same edition: Figures reveal Europe falling far short of climate targets…

THC, again

Its a week for re-runs, now the

Just a quick pointer towards an article in Newsweek (which now appears under MSN? Odd…) Remember Global Cooling? quoting yours truly. The article isn’t entirely satisfactory, in that it doesn’t really point out the errors Newsweek made then – indeed, it rather suggests that it didn’t make errors.

Stern review (pre-post)

Don’t you just hate it when the newspapers write up something based on selective leaks and insider info, and then fail to properly report on the real thing because its been done already? Well, I’m not going to do that to the Stern Review (side note: if you look up Stern report on google, I’m…
