IPCC Overestimated CO2 Effects; FoS Refutes Claim of 97% Consensus : July 23, 2013

The Economist reports on IPCC CO2 Sensitivity as Friends of Science Issues a Statement on claims of 97% Scientific Consensus on Global Warming and Climate Change. Recent comments by President Obama and high profile eco-activists like Canadian David Suzuki stating that there is a 97% scientific consensus on global warming and climate change are misleading the public, say Friends of Science. Four key studies on consensus show that scientists only agree that human activity has caused some warming - not dangerous warming; meanwhile The Economist is reporting IPCC draft estimates of climate sensitivity of CO2 saying; "climate sensitivity may have been overestimated in the past and that the science is too uncertain to justify a single estimate of future rises."



Calgary Flood Damage Due to Poor Policy: July 9, 2013

Calgary Flood Damage an Outcome of Poor Policy not Climate Change or Global Warming says Friends of Science. Global warming activists and pundits around the world were quick to try and link recent catastrophic flooding in the energy capital of Calgary with climate change. Wondering why governments continued to allow development on flood plains knowing homeowners could be completely wiped out, Friends of Science sets the record and the science straight on Calgary, Alberta, Canada's historic floods and wishful thinking on the part of policy makers.



Keystone XL Pipeline Cooler than Wind Farms: July 3, 2013

Keystone XL Pipeline Cleaner and Cooler than Texas Wind Farms in Terms of Climate Change and Global Warming. Recent research indicates that Texas wind farms cause more heating and climate change than would the Keystone XL Pipeline; consequently prospects of the President approving Keystone look brighter for thousands of jobless Americans. Based on US State Department parameters, Keystone is calculated to potentially contribute just 0.00002 C in 50 years, while Texas wind Farms have been shown to have increased local temperatures by 1 C, at the same time requiring inordinate amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) intense cement during construction.



Global Cooling Is More Likely than Global Warming: June 25, 2013

Obama Warned that Climate Change to Global Cooling is more likely than Global Warming say Friends of Science as Sleepy Solar Cycle Foretells Icy Decades Ahead. Obama's attempt to stop global warming and climate change by reducing carbon dioxide or closing coal power plants will only create an American-style heat or eat crisis like that which forced millions into fuel poverty in the UK and Europe. Global temperatures have been declining since 2001 as solar magnetic activity falls; these natural climate factors are not part of the IPCC's computer models which have lead governments to implement unnecessary climate policies that sent EU electrical prices up 37% over that of the US since 2005.



Collapse of Climate Talks in Bonn: June 18, 2013

Collapse of Climate Change Talks in Bonn plus the Epic Fail of Global Warming Prediction Models mean End of Climate Terror say Friends of Science. Russia foiled the climate talks in Bonn last week by challenging the consensus decision making process that they said often excludes them; that draft agreements are offered up in the 11th hour for approval without their valid input. In light of revelations that global warming stopped 16 years ago, despite a rise in carbon dioxide (CO2), Friends of Science point out that computer model predictions of warming are all wrong with tropical warming trends from 1979 off by a factor of four; the evidence shows no global warming.
