might be there … but how about SternGate – One excuse for imposing worldwide climate crackdown has been the U.K.’s 2006 Stern Report, an economic doomsday prediction commissioned by the government. Now the U.K. Telegraph reports that quietly after publication “some of these predictions had been watered down because the scientific evidence on which they were based could not be verified.” Among original claims now deleted were that northwest Australia has had stronger typhoons in recent decades, and that southern Australia lost rainfall because of rising ocean temperatures. Exaggerated claims get headlines. Later, news reporters disclose the truth. Why is that?
SternGate II – A researcher now claims the Stern Report misquoted his work to suggest a firm link between global warming and more-frequent and severe floods and hurricanes. Robert Muir-Wood said his original research showed no such link. He accused Stern of “going far beyond what was an acceptable extrapolation of the evidence.” We’re shocked.
The rigors of scientific discipline demand,inter alia,that a theory or hypothesis imply the kind of evidence that would disproved.Predictions based on the theory are checked against the facts.If something occurs that should not have,and vice versa,the theory is consigned to the waste basket.Einstein said that it would not take a thousand scientists to prove him wrong.One fact alone would suffice.The AGW alarmists themselves lament that they cannot explain the lack of warming.Ergo,the AGW theory has been discredited.End of story. ,
