I heard the Stott vs. Houghton item on the Today programme this morning...
There are a series of links to related web pages at the BBC online article
today on "Sceptics denounce climate science 'lie'" at
are included to the ESEF web site (http://www.scienceforum.net/) and the
sites for George C Marshall Institute (http://www.marshall.org/) and Philip
Stott (http://www.ecotrop.org/). Note also that the Tyndall web site is
listed 3rd on the internet links section...
Did anyone hear Stott vs. Houghton on Today, radio 4 this morning? Woeful
stuff really. This is one reason why Tyndall is sponsoring the Cambridge
Media/Environment Programme to starve this type of reporting at source.
In the meantime the Carbon Trust were very annoyed by the piece (also an
article in The Daily Mail - surprise, surprise) and have talked to me about
their best line of action. I have pursuaded them that a knee-jerk reaction
is not the best. However, .......
Two questions can anyone help me with:
- are there any on-line web sources reporting on the US Panel that reported
to Bush last June on the credibility of the IPCC Assessments?
- can anyone find out about this European organisation that published this
report that has caused the flurry of activity? I've heard of it before but
is there a web site?
Simon, could we have a chat about this soon, and Vanessa, please could you
buy me a Daily Mail today?
