Use Climate Week to challenge the man-made global warming consensus

(Re-post from November 2010)

Oh Joy. From the pages of Environmental Data Interactive we learn that the Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, Greg Barker, will be giving a keynote address today to mark the build up to the UK’s first Climate Week (21st-27th March 2011). Apparently Climate Week aims to enhance society’s approach to combating climate change:

‘It hopes to do this by creating an unprecedented opportunity for individuals and organisations from all parts of society, to share ideas, forge new collaborations, motivate their peers and inspire others to act.’

In other words people are going to be hectored with ever more shrill taxpayer funded propaganda about the crumbling anthropogenic global warming (AGW) orthodoxy. The true believers will continue their attempts to indoctrinate others while ignoring the many claims that have been debunked. As part of their effort some star names of the climate change movement are being rolled out… such as Al Gore.

It seems one of the worst ever Secretary Generals of the UN, Kofi Annan, is on board but now needs to be described by the organisers as a ‘Nobel Peace Prize laureate’ to boost his credibility. Also getting the red carpet treatment is Lord Nicholas Stern, whose error-littered report has been comprehensively eviscerated. In addition we are being treated to A-list celebrities backing the campaign such as Sir Paul McCartney, Michael Palin, Mark Ronson, Lily Cole and Sienna Miller. With so many scientific heavyweights on board, how could anyone fail to be persuaded by their claims?

The best response to this campaign would be for all those who question the climate change consensus to spend Climate Week pointing out the facts about climate change, to debunk the myths and ensure people are aware there is a compelling counter argument. To make sure it is an Honest Climate Week.  Just for starters here are some of the things that could be done:

  • On every blog, message board, newspaper comment thread and radio phone in, ensure people understand AGW is a theory not a scientific fact.
  • Highlight the media bias and ask why scientists who question the climate change orthodoxy are deliberately excluded by the media from discussions on the subject.
  • Demonstrate that the science is far from settled and the debate is nowhere near over by correcting false and mistaken assertions about things such as… rising temperatures, Arctic sea ice melt, the infamous Hockey Stick, the extent of Antarctic sea ice, dramatically inaccurate weather forecasting, missing and non existant data sets.

There is plenty of material out there that challenges the consensus. We should use it to educate those who have only heard one side of the story or do not have the time or inclination to explore the subject and identify for themselves those things that don’t add up.

Spread the word. Let’s ensure there is a real debate during Climate Week and that the myths and distortions are challenged.

    “Sir Paul McCartney, Michael Palin, Mark Ronson, Lily Cole and Sienna Miller. With so many scientific heavyweights on board, how could anyone fail to be persuaded by their claims?”

    My God! So many heavyweight world famous scientists, I am convinced that CAGW isnt a failing corrupt cult. Sign me up.

    But seriously, do these muppets who organised this farce realise how ridiculous they appear to all thinking people? Yes the funding stream is still fully operational and until the cash spigot is turned off there will always be parasitical elements all too willing to exploit it but the idea that a few C and D list celebs always desperate for any exposure they can get will give their cult beliefs street cred is laughable. Its like asking Dolf Lundgren to do your heart bypass because he was once in the movies.

    What it shows is a desperation to hide away from reality, it shows a failing cult clinging onto to a failing ideology.

    AM a correction.

    Greg Barker is the Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, Chris Huhne is the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.

    It’s like living in an alternative universe! This idiots are supposed to be our ‘superiors’ who are leading the UK to a better world. Resultant blood pressure is going to kill me long before global warming ever does…

    One Idea might be to make an educative documentary and post it online.

    All you need is:

    1. A person to research all the facts to be used.
    2. A person to write an informative 100% factual script on the research.
    3. A narrator to read the script.
    4. A person who can create a video and mix in the narrative soundtrack with some nice graphics.

    I can do the video graphics & sound if someone would like to write a script and do the Narration.

    A bit of direct action perhaps?
