This sceptic only wishes that was the case.
Professor Bob Watson, the chief scientific adviser to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and former chairman of the IPCC, said yesterday that the backlash is the result of a campaign: "It does appear that there's a concerted effort by a number of sceptics to undermine the credibility of the evidence behind human-induced climate change." He added: "I am sure there are some sceptics who may well be funded by the private sector to try to cast uncertainty."
I've been skeptical of the Science of climate change for some considerable time now, but only entered the Blogosphere a short while ago. It was a relief to me to see that I was not alone in questioning the Science and spin about Climate change.
In the seventies we were bombarded by propaganda informing us that we were entering a new Ice age. Where is it?
In the eighties and nineties we were assured that we were all going to burn in hell due to AGW.
Now although AGW is still touted incessantly, the title has subtly changed to "Climate change". Could it be that these eminent scientists, the Politicians, NGO's, and the industries who stand to profit from this, are desperate to keep it alive at all costs?
Come on Shell, BP, Exxon Mobile and all you others. Where's my bloody money?
Oh and bye the way, there's more of that white global warming stuff falling now.
