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...

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...

Detailed analysis shows that only 0.5% (65 of the 12,000 abstracts rated) suggest that humans are responsible for more than 50% of the global warming up to 2001, contrary to the alleged 97% consensus amongst scientists in the Cook et al study. Citing fear mongering and faulty methodology Friends of Science reject the study and President Obama´s tweet as careless incitement of a misinformed and frightened public, when in fact the sun is the main driver of climate change; not human...

Al Gore´s “Climate Reality” presentation witnessed by Friends of Science members featured frightening movie clips of disasters, but when asked the questions about climate change science there was no supporting evidence offered. Friends of Science stand by the evidence-based scientific method and are concerned that this climate "reality" is being promoted in schools across North America, consequently they announce the posting of a point-by-point rebuttal backed up with...

Richard Muller Converts, Human Activity Causes Global Warming

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One skeptical climate scientist has changed his beliefs, and now says that human activity is indeed causing the Earth to warm. Prof Richard Muller, who founded the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, admitted in a New York Times opinion piece on Saturday that he was a "converted skeptic." He admitted that a new study aimed at looking into climate change skeptics' concerns helped alter his beliefs. "Last year,...

In order to explain some of the weird weather occurring across the world over the past few years, scientists have begun to research the loss of arctic sea ice. They believe this ice is being lost due to greenhouse gases released by humans. Odd and sometimes dangerous weather phenomenon has scientists left without answers as to why these things are happening. Last year´s unusually hot summer has led into an unusually mild winter. Recently, spring seems to have sprung a bit early across...

Researchers Say Decreased Solar Activity Won’t Offset Global Warning
2012-01-24 14:25:46

According to a study published Monday, the slightly weaker activity of the sun expected in the coming 90 years will not be enough to significantly curb rising global temperatures. The research collaboration between the UK´s Meteorological Office and the University of Reading predicts that the energy output of the sun would decrease marginally throughout the 21 century. Unfortunately, they say, the modest 0.14 degrees Fahrenheit fall in global temperatures that this solar weakening is...

One of the primary researchers involved in the "ËœClimategate' affair has admitted that he had trouble "Ëœkeeping track' of the raw data that is crucial to the theory of climate change, DailyMail UK reported. Professor Phil Jones has apparently refused Freedom of Information requests because colleagues say he may have actually lost the relevant papers. He himself even admitted there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organizational skills and that...

The University of East Anglia announced Thursday it is formally investigating whether scientists at its prestigious Climatic Research Unit falsified data on global warming studies, The Associated Press reported. In late November, emails between some of the world's leading climate scientists were stolen from the university and leaked to the Internet. As a result, skeptics of man-made global warming say the emails are proof that scientists have been conspiring to hide evidence showing that...

On the scientific research front, most news headlines tend to be aimed at showing how global temperatures are on a steady upward climb, but one report published last week appears to reveal that those upward trends may not be entirely accurate. In an October 9 BBC News story, climate correspondent Paul Hudson noted that the warmest year on record was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998. The story goes on to state that no climate increase has been measured over the past 11 years, although...
