97% Consensus on Global Warming Is a Math Myth Feb. 4, 2014

Climate Change Is a Fact of Life, the Science Is Not Settled and 97% Consensus on Global Warming Is a Math Myth. Friends of Science have issued a new report "97% Consensus? No! Global Warming Math Myths and Social Proofs" revealing that only 1-3% of scientists in 3 of 4 "consensus" surveys explicitly agree with the IPCC extreme declaration on global warming. Scientific evidence at the joint NOAA/NASA press conference Jan. 21, 2014 shows no global warming in 16+ years despite a rise in carbon dioxide (CO2); as climate models continue to fail, the Dutch government calls for the IPCC reform to include natural factors, not limited to human-induced climate change.



CO2 Not a Control Knob that Can Fine Tune Climate says Judith Curry Jan. 23, 2014

Climate science expert Judith Curry's recent testimony to the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works deconstructed the recent IPCC AR5 report, weighing climate model predictions against the evidence of 'the pause' in global warming. Curry stated the the climate sensitivity of carbon dioxide was much less than thought; meanwhile in the EU and UK Der Spiegel reports that low-carbon climate protection targets are being abandoned due to burdensome costs and damage to industry and employment.



BBC Executive Global Warming Seminar Revelations Jan. 16, 2014

According to recent reports in the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, the BBC spent thousands of pounds attempting to thwart a Freedom of Information request regarding an eco-conference BBC executives attended, leading Friends of Science to ask whether the BBC is fairly reporting climate change and energy events. Friends of Science point to similar disturbing discrepancies in Canadian reporting by CBC and Alberta Venture magazine, predicting the end of coal-fired power plants, while not reporting that 'green' Germany is building 20 new coal plants that will mirror Alberta's advanced coal technologies.



Comic Quip by Calgary Counselor Creates On-line Firestorm Jan. 9, 2014

A comic tweet by Calgary city Counselor Sean Chu referring to climate scientists stuck in Antarctica, and North America in a deep freeze spiraled into a media frenzy overnight as commentators - for and against the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming theory - weighed in from far and wide, including the Huffington Post. Friends of Science say that instead of reviewing the scientific evidence of increased extreme cold snaps, people rely on the 'social proof' of an alleged 97% consensus on global warming that simply does not exist.



Climate Change Group Marooned in Antarctic Ice when Sea-Ice at Record High Jan. 7, 2014

A climate change science-tourism expedition got trapped when they set out to prove global warming is causing Antarctica's sea ice to melt, despite data showing the Antarctic 2013 year-average sea ice area is the highest ever recorded during the satellite era, which began in 1979. Friends of Science point out on their Polar Region Sea Ice web-page that Antarctic sea ice data shows it is 1.5 million sq. km larger than the 30 year average and that there has been no global warming in 16 years.
