In the UK even the “green” newspaper writers are dismayed by Climategate

How could I not be disappointed by the seemingly endless news stories about climate science being – well, less certain than we had previously been assured? By the implication that the sainted IPPC has taken a bit of a punt in arriving at some of its conclusions?


This statement is from Times writer John-Paul Flintoff . He’s been writing as a “green” advocate (still does) and supporter of man-made global warming theory for at least 5 years. The Times has long been a supporter of the theory as “settled science”. However, in Britain the public opinion has shifted dramatically as every revelation comes in, one after the next, showing the flawed and deceptive “science” so wrapped up in politics. The Times has felt the burn. The comments sections are filled with people fed up with being lied to. So The Times is pivoting it’s position–trying to stand back and see where this leads–afraid of losing their own credibility along with the IPCC.

  1. With reference to global warming, which unfortunately so long as governments are considering Cap and Trade and CO2 taxes, is still with us.

    There might be global warming or cooling but the important issue is whether we, as a human race, can do anything about it.

    There are a host of porkies and not very much truth barraging us everyday so its difficult to know what to believe.

    I think I have simplified the issue in an entertaining way on my blog which includes some issues connected with climategate and “embarrassing” evidence.

    In the pipeline is an analysis of the economic effects of the proposed emission reductions. Watch this space or should I say Blog
