Out Of The Mouths Of Scientists......

Dr Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Con (IPCC), said the evidence is now “overwhelming” that millions of people will suffer if temperatures rise. 

He is also quoted as saying: “The recent incident of stealing the emails of scientists at the University of East Anglia shows that some would go to the extent of carrying out illegal acts perhaps in an attempt to discredit the IPCC."

No Pachauri, 'stealing' e-mails is a minor crime when compared to that of using public money to hoodwink the public into believing a theory which has yet to be proved conclusively!

In the letters page of today's Daily Telegraph, Dr. Anthony Cowan sums up the situation rather nicely when he writes: "There are two main types of research: 1. A question is asked and experiments are devised to answer it; 2. An answer is provided and experiments are devised to prove it.There is a general suspicion that the second type is used by many to prove that there is climate change caused by man."

The trouble with 'conclusive proof' for the layperson is that in order to obtain it, a large area of the UK will have to go under the waves - then it is catch 22 - do nothing and get proven right and the naysayers will bleat 'why didn't you stop this' or take action to prevent it and the naysayers bleat 'see I told you it was a con'.

Yes science could be wrong - especially with regard to the extent and the timing - but if you believe science in every aspect of your lives, why do you find it so hard to believe it when it is inconvenient to you?
