Buying denial: Koch caught in the act - Hot Topic

Bryan Walker Apr 02, 2010

Greenpeace has been digging.  It has unearthed Koch Industries as a major funder of climate change denial groups. A new 44 page report tells the story. It fits well with  their more widely-scoped report Dealing in Doubt to which Gareth drew attention recently. I was unaware of Koch Industries and, according to Greenpeace, that’s also the [...] … Read More

Dogged Pearce still hounding Jones - Hot Topic

Bryan Walker Apr 01, 2010

Fred Pearce is a fine one to speak of a rush to judgment. Many of his Guardian articles on the UEA emails did just that. (See Pearced to the Heart and Defending the Indefensible on Hot Topic) Yet that is the accusation he levels at yesterday’s report of the parliamentary committee’s investigation into the [...] … Read More

Climate scientist Phil Jones exonerated - Open Parachute

Ken Perrott Mar 31, 2010

The UK Parliament Science and Technology Committee has released its report into “climategate” – some of the issues surrounding the release of stolen emails from the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit. It effectively exonerates Phil Jones from  charges of withholding data and questionable scientific ethics. The text of the press release is below and the [...] … Read More

You might expect the Business Roundtable to be avid readers of that august weekly news magazine The Economist, and yet BR head honcho Roger Kerr was happy to write this in an op-ed published last month, apparently relying on British tabloid the Daily Mail as a source: On top of all this is Climategate, which started [...] … Read More

Fred Pearce is obviously unrepentant over the unjust treatment he meted out to Phil Jones in his unfortunate series of artices on the UEA emails, one of which I commented on here. He has just produced an extraordinarily slanted account of Jones’ questioning from the Parliamentary committee set up to look into the affair. How’s this [...] … Read More

Pearced to the heart: Fred gets it wrong - Hot Topic

Bryan Walker Feb 18, 2010

I have been a reader of the Guardian newspaper for 55 years and was more than a little astonished when they ran a series of articles by prominent environmental journalist Fred Pearce on the stolen University of East Anglia emails. For that matter I was surprised that Fred Pearce wrote them. He is no climate change [...] … Read More

Analysis of stolen CRU emails by NZ blogger shows tawdry manipulation of facts — Poneke’s credibility now in tatters - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Jan 19, 2010

This may be one of the least important posts I’ve ever written. It’s only 1,100 words (including quotes), but that’s all that was necessary. When a blogger makes as many simple mistakes, and indulges in so much gross distortion of the truth as seen in the last two posts by Poneke (aka former journalist David [...] … Read More
