NEWSFLASH: Climate change still at bottom of world’s priority heap

This may seem like a back to the future moment, or simply a replay of last year’s performances from the movers and shakers at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – who all seem to be blissfully unaware that a year after voting began the people of the world continue to place “climate change” at the bottom of the priority heap.

IPCC WG III on CO2 “equivalents” … and confusion

So, while Stephan <even when I’m wrong, I’m right> Lewandowsky continues to defend his indefensible Recursive Fury against Frontiers’ retraction – aided and abetted by his dutiful little gophers (aka Dana Nuccitelli and John Cook) – thereby planting himself (and his over-inflated ego) firmly in the ranks of those whose signature anthem should be “Mediocrity…

A brief update to a Frontears footnote

An update from the “now you see it, now you don’t” department at Frontiers in Psychology, the (now former) home of Lewandowsky and pals’ example of abysmal “scholarship”, their so-called Recursive Fury paper.

The mystery of missing elements in Lewandowsky’s blog bluffery

Stephan Lewandowsky, whose field of expertise is supposedly “cognitive psychology”, has a magnificent obsession with denigrating any and all who do not swallow wholesale the tenets and dogma of the so-called “consensus” on global warming, aka climate change. His main claim to fame is a “peer-reviewed paper” that became the source of much amusement in…

Of hapless harangues and wasted opportunities: climate change vs TB

Amongst the many Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Climate Bible adherents of whom you may not have heard, is a woman by the name of Catherine Happer. She calls herself an “Honorary Research Associate, Glasgow University Media Group at University of Glasgow”. The Scots are somewhat famous for their fierce independence (and/or or the…
