Maybe the CRU will open peoples’ eyes

The DailyMail runs a Special Investigation on climate change and the scientific basis for the Catastrophists’ claims.

Climate science is complicated, and often the only way to make sense of raw data is through sophisticated statistical computer programs. The consequence is that most lay individuals – politicians and members of the public alike – have little choice but to take the assurances of scientists such as Davies on trust. He and other ‘global warmists’ often insist that when it comes to the IPCC’s main conclusions – that the Earth is in a period of potentially catastrophic warming and that the main culprit is man-made greenhouse gas emission – no serious scientist dissents from the conventional view.

 Well, the news outlets are finally starting to question that last point, as the article goes on to say…

In fact, there is a large body of highly-respected academic experts who fiercely contest this thesis: people such as Richard Lindzen, Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a disillusioned former IPCC member, and Dr Tom Segalstad, head of geology at Oslo University, who has stated that ‘most leading geologists throughout the world know that the IPCC’s view of Earth processes are implausible if not impossible’.

Wow, now that’s what I’m talking about.  Let’s have a heaping serving of skeptical inquiry and critical thinking.  Do the catastrophists’ claims really hold up under scrutiny?  Let’s hope we see more of this in major news outlets.
