This is the start of a new thread, which begins with the post headed: Amazongate: the final phase. This deals with the Booker column, headlined: "Amazongate: new evidence of the IPCC's failures". This is the start of the final phase of the IPCC's meltdown.

The pathetic Harrabin is trying to stay on Richard Blacks Christmas card list in order to defend his 33 years in journalism. His BBC pension is at stake.

First time in your Blog, Mr. North. Excellent analyses. BBC bought AGW strongly, besides Labour and Tories, unfortunately. They need a way out, you provide a lot of them.

"final phase thread" is that an aspiration or counting chickens?

A whole lot more about TERI funding from the Hindustan Times

TERI got Rs 56 lakh to run UN climate meetings

Seen in the comments of a WUWT post from today, James Delingpole's blog and An Englishman's Castle:

Philip Stott: Global Warming: the Collapse of a Grand Narrative

Quote:
The Scientific Collapse

And what can one say about ‘the science’? ‘The ‘science’ is already paying dearly for its abuse of freedom of information, for unacceptable cronyism, for unwonted arrogance, and for the disgraceful misuse of data at every level, from temperature measurements to glaciers to the Amazon rain forest. What is worse, the usurping of the scientific method, and of justified scientific scepticism, by political policies and political propaganda could well damage science sensu lato - never mind just climate science - in the public eye for decades. The appalling pre-Copenhagen attacks by the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, and his climate-change henchman, Ed Miliband, on those who dared to be critical of the science of climate change were some of the most unforgivable I can recall.

Were the science as certain as the politicians wish it to be their vociferous blusterings would be unneccessary.

From Andrew Neil's blog earlier this week The dam is cracking:
Quote:
Every time I have questioned our politicians about global warming they have fallen back on the mantra that "2,500 scientists can't be wrong", referring to the vast numbers supposedly behind the IPCC consensus.

But it is now clear that the majority of those involved in the IPCC process are not scientists at all but politicians, bureaucrats, NGOs and green activists.

It has been clear for a long time but few in the media cared to notice. What is worse is that the 'consensus' is an entirely political construct, just as it was when the Met Office scrabbled to get signatures to refute the questions that were bubbling to the surface before Christmas. That simply is not science.

A Lakh is a unit of 100,000 I believe, so \teri go 5.6 million of them.

Listening to Roger Harribin on BBC Radio 4's Today programme was most striking. Not only was he referring to the sceptic bloggs (EUref, WUWT and CA must be right at the top of that list) but the guy sounded suicidal.

Not only is his ten year promotion of AGW crumbling around his ears, I think he has realised that the MSM no longer has any real clout in breaking the biggest stories. He has missed the boat on this story - probably his biggest opportunity to investigate corruption on a massive scale - a story that's right on his patch.

Roger Harribin and David Shukman and all involved at the BBC should hang their heads in shame for being being part of this scandal. Listening to his depressed tones is payback for his years of attempted indoctrination on the subject. He knows that he will never go down in history with the likes of Bob Woodward and Carl Berstein as he has missed his opportunity.

When the history of the fall of AGW is written Richard, your name will be one of the few journalists that can hold your head high, along with Booker, Watts, McIntyre and a few more.

Thank you for all your efforts. The world needs people like you more than ever since the MSM has given up.

As I posted on WUWT recently you deserve a Knighthood for "services to realism".

I think the Barclay brothers need to reassess the appointment of William Lewis (is he still there). They really do need some joined up journalism. Ok, I know it is a sarKastic comment.....but hey, lying low islanders will sink beneath the waves.

The leader in the Telegraph giggles about Alastair Campbell's and Raj Pachauri's attempts at writing novels - but misses the obvious point that both men have been involved with famous fictions before (the "dodgy dossier" of 2002 and the IPCC's AR4 of 2007).

That is just about the Telegraph's style. It has little more credibility than a children's comic, written by retards who have never been able to grow up.

Seems some 'real' journalists & 'real' scientists are from the same crèche...and rarely do these 'cut-&-paste' journos give credit where it is due...and most of them are probably very recent converts to The New Enlightenment.
How do they hold down a job FFS.

It's great to see the end game being played out but, as I have said many a time before, the astronomically expensive & criminally misleading miscreants, fully aware of their deception, will get away with it...unless some extremely expensive lawsuits are promulgated...and even then.
I need not remind fellow commenters of Cash for Peerages, MP's expenses, MEP's even worse thievery (all small beer in comparison to the present megascam, I know) where, as far as I am aware, there has been not one single prosecution.
If the British people are incapable of cleansing their own Augean stables there is not a glimmer of hope that the perps of this shameful deluding of mankind will face retribution. PDT_Armataz_01_35

This is your story Richard - The Times/Leake



http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/e ... 009705.ece

Quote:
Simon Lewis, a Royal Society research fellow at Leeds University who specialises in tropical forest ecology, described the section of Rowell and Moore’s report predicting the potential destruction of large swathes of rainforest as “a mess”.

“The Nature paper is about the interactions of logging damage, fire and periodic droughts, all extremely important in understanding the vulnerability of Amazon forest to drought, but is not related to the vulnerability of these forests to reductions in rainfall,” he said.

“In my opinion the Rowell and Moore report should not have been cited; it contains no primary research data.”

WWF said it prided itself on the accuracy of its reports and was investigating the latest concerns. “We have a team of people looking at this internationally,” said Keith Allott, its climate change campaigner.

Scientists such as Lewis are demanding that the IPCC ban the use of reports from pressure groups. They fear that environmental campaign groups are bound to cherry-pick the scientific literature that confirms their beliefs and ignore the rest.

It was exactly this process that lay behind the bogus claim that the Himalayan glaciers were likely to melt by 2035 — a suggestion that got into another WWF report and was then used by the IPCC.

Let us be careful with our well-deserved glee at Richard's 'phinal phase'...it is only a battle in the process of being won.
Our ruling elite has no time for the Norths of this world who do not reflect its ex cathedra mindset.
This is one of the most dangerous enemies in our midst and it must very publicly be identified, shamed & booted out.
The UK & its politics is a recurring disaster to which the electorate must, when it wakes up, shout STOP!....as long as the Camerons & Browns define our nation we are doomed to continuity.
It is at times such as this that I remind myself of one of the original purposes of EUReferendum... to get us away from the EU and be an independent country...hopefully we can get back to basics fairly soon.
