"GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE" CRITICAL ANALYSES

[ If you do not have Adobe Reader you can download a Free version at http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ ]


Sixth INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLIMATE CHANGE (2011)RESTORING the SCIENTIFIC METHOD --- KEYNOTE SPEAKERS include Hon. Harrison Schmidt (former U.S. Senator and NASA astronaut — Moonwalker, Apollo 17) The theme of the conference, "Restoring the Scientific Method," acknowledges the fact that claims of scientific certainty and predictions of climate catastrophes are based on "post-normal science," which substitutes claims of consensus for the scientific method. This choice has had terrible consequences for science and society. Abandoning the scientific method led to the "Climategate" scandal and the errors and abuses of peer review by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

LINDZEN_Report (2008) on Political Corruption of Science — Richard Lindzen of MIT (world-leading climatologist who consulted for the IPCC). Excerpt: “In particular, we will show how political bodies act to control scientific institutions, how scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions, and how opposition to these positions is disposed of.” Also at http://arxiv.org/abs/0809.3762
