Hellere lade Jorden gå under end lade skeptikerne få ret

Der blev jo hugget nogle klimails for nylig ved et cyberindbrud. Publiceringen af dette ulovligt tilvejeskaffede materiale har givet et sjældent indblik i, at visse klimaforskere beskæftiger sig med politik, og ikke med forskning, når de advarer om global opvarmning som en umiddelbart forestående katastrofe.
Via Powerline kommer denne interessante indsigt i, at nogle klimaforskere tænker anderledes end man skulle forvente. Phil Jones, "Director of the Climate Research Unit" - altså forskningschef - skriver til et par af sine svende:
I hope you're not right about the lack of warming lasting till about 2020. I'd rather hoped to see the earlier Met Office press release with Doug's paper that said something like -half the years to 2014 would exceed the warmest year currently on record, 1998!
Still a way to go before 2014.
I seem to be getting an email a week from skeptics saying where's the warming gone. I know the warming is on the decadal scale, but it would be nice to wear their smug grins away.

Powerline har dækket den nylige læk af emails ganske grundigt, og det anbefales at man læser deres poster om emnet.

I mellemtiden, andetsteds: Danmark får ny klimaminister. - - Hvad laver én sådan i grunden? Fiser rundt med storhedsvanvittige tanker om at kunne kontrollere naturen og at menneskeheden kan leve evigt?

Du skal også se den her, som er lidt apropos det med klima og spin;

The effects of climate change have driven women in communities in coastal areas in poor countries like the Philippines into dangerous work, and sometimes even the flesh trade, a United Nations official said.



“Climate change could reduce income from farming and fishing, possibly driving some women into sex work and thereby increase HIV infection,” Mukherjee said during the Wednesday launch of the UNFPA annual State of World Population Report in Pasay City.

Nøgleordet er "could". Man tager sig godt nok til hovedet.....
