'Look into my eyes: You are feeling very worried about the climate ... so worried'


Re: «[T]housands» and «tens of thousands» ?

Jtom, it is current through 2014. If you look at the updates section it has been updated numerous times since 2009.

Climate scientists agree: Humans cause global warming


97% Study Falsely Classifies Scientists' Papers, according to the scientists that published them

97% Study Falsely Classifies Scientists' Papers, according to the scientists that published them


The paper, Cook et al. (2013) 'Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature' searched the Web of Science for the phrases "global warming" and "global climate change" then categorizing these results to their alleged level of endorsement of AGW. These results were then used to allege a 97% consensus on human-caused global warming.

To get to the truth, I emailed a sample of scientists who's papers were used in the study and asked them if the categorization by Cook et al. (2013) is an accurate representation of their paper. Their responses are eye opening and evidence that the Cook et al. (2013) team falsely classified scientists' papers as "endorsing AGW", apparently believing to know more about the papers than their authors.

'Ex climate sceptic' Muller's latest BEST stuff is the worst so far


Re: Muller was never a sceptic

Incorrect, this is mentioned in the article,


Richard Muller has never been a skeptic, at best he had a moment of intellectual honesty towards skeptics when he acknowledged Steve McIntyre's debunking of Mann's Hockey Stick, only to later dismiss this as irrelevant to the global warming debate, "This result should not affect any of our thinking on global warming".
