Telegraph’s Dellingpole, the Climate Change Denier indulges himself in personal attack on leading scientist

James Delingpole, the Telegraph’s resident Climate Change Denial kook, has used his column today to launch a personal attack upon Sir Paul Nurse (pictured here). One wonders what Sir Paul did to be highlighted like this. Could it be the fact the Sir Paul won the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine … nope. … Read moreTelegraph’s Dellingpole, the Climate Change Denier indulges himself in personal attack on leading scientist

“Skeptic” vs “Denier” – I got it wrong … really wrong.

It sounds credible, it sounds believable, it also … Read moreClaim: Global temperature rise could exceed “safe” levels of two degrees in our lifetimes

Climate Change and Cloud Cover – the new report

The climate change debate is heating up yet again. OK, so what has happened? Well, before I go there, lets first establish a few things so that you fully understand where I’m coming from. Man made climate change is real, the evidence is in, there is not really much real scientific controversy. In April 2010 a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that nearly 98% of working climate scientists accept the evidence for human-induced climate change, this latest study does not change that.
