(Washington, DC – July 16, 2008) A new paper released by the Science and Public Policy Institute, a Washington, DC think tank, strongly suggests that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a single-interest organization whose charter presumes a widespread human influence on climate, rather than consideration of whether such influence may be negligible or missing altogether.
WASHINGTON (7-15-08) – Mathematical proof that there is no “climate crisis” appears today in a major, peer-reviewed paper in Physics and Society, a learned journal of the 4,600-strong American Physical Society, SPPI reports.
The U. S. government commissioned studies to support the listing of polar bears as a threatened or endangered species. Polar bear numbers are currently high and the population has been increasing rapidly in recent decades. Everyone likes polar bears, so this is good news. A decision to list would require forecasts that the current upward population trend will… Read More »
WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SPPI questions Senator Kerry’s attribution of recent Tennessee tornados to “global warming.” “Any literate school child can type into an internet search engine the words “tornado history in Tennessee” and “history of hurricanes in Florida” and immediately discover that Sen. Kerry appears climatologically not smarter than a fifth grader,” says Robert Ferguson, president of D.C.-based Science and… Read More »
WASHINGTON, DC, October 21, 2007 SPPI today reveals 35 errors in Al Gore’s discredited climate movie An Inconvenient Truth (http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/monckton/goreerrors.html ). The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, an expert witness in the UK legal case condemning the movie, compiled the science-based list in response to recent inaccurate public comments by Gore’s environment advisor relative to the High Court’s findings.
(Washington, D.C.) A fundamental scientific error lurks in a book calculated to terrify schoolchildren about “global warming”, Robert Ferguson, SPPI president, announced today: “The Down To Earth Guide to Global Warming", by Laurie David and Cambria Gordon, is intentionally designed to propagandize unsuspecting school children who do not have enough knowledge to know what is being done to… Read More »
Published by the Science and Public Policy Institute, climate data analyst John McLean has written an analysis of the reviewer comments to the UN’s most recent IPCC Assessment Report released in April.
Naomi Oreskes, a historian at the University of California, San Diego, faces questions after an academic researcher formally complained to Chancellor Marye Anne Fox that Oreskes had not read a draft paper by him before thrice publicly accusing him of “misrepresentation”.
In two major new Science and Public Policy (SPPI) papers, Lord Monckton, a former advisor to Margaret Thatcher as UK Prime Minister, startlingly but definitively demonstrates that the distinctive fingerprint of human greenhouse warming predicted by the UN’s computer models is absent from real-world observations, and that the reputed scientific “consensus” on “global warming” is likewise non-existent.
WASHINGTON, DC, August 10, 2007 “The Third International Mathematics and Science Study Results reveal that US public school children are remarkably sub par in math and science capabilities. Apparently things are not much brighter for the adults at Newsweek Magazine,” reports Robert Ferguson, President of the Science and Public Policy Institute (www.scienceandpublicpolicy.org).
