My friend Tom Harris is inviting people to attend a conference sponsored by his International Climate Science Coalition and others in Paris at the same time as the big UN affair. Even if you don't find yourself in Paris this coming week, it's well worth pondering the questions Tom and his colleagues are asking about the orthodox view. Most fundamentally, the ICSC and others ask for proper evidence on these three points:
- Recent climate change is unusual in comparison with historical records;
- Human emissions of carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse gases' are dangerously impacting climate;
- Computer-based models are reliable indicators of future climate.
If the consensus is as solid as alarmists claim, it should be easy to provide. If they can't or won't provide it, something very unscientific is going on here.
