A MATHEMATICAL discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer Dr David Evans may change everything about the climate debate, on the eve of the UN climate change conference in Paris next month. A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science. He has found that, while the underlying physics of the model is correct, it had been applied incorrectly.
'What these 20 scientists have done with their letter is the worst kind of irresponsible advocacy. Attempts by powerful people to silence other scientists, especially in this brutal fashion, is a recipe for stifling scientific progress and for making poor policies.'
UK Sun - September 25, 2015 - 'That has nothing to do with faith. It's about science and provable facts. That science is disputed, some of it discredited. the Pope's believe in it is irrelevant. Stick to religion, Your Holiness.'
Alabama state climatologist and UAH professor Dr. John Christy says if Pope Francis was in his classroom he’d “give him some homework.”
“He’d find out that the regulations he is fond of and the president too, will actually do nothing to change what the climate is going to do,” Dr. Christy told WAFF. “Reducing carbon emissions has a definite economic effect, it hurts the poorest the most and the first, and that’s something I don’t think the Catholic Hierarchy has factored in at this point.”
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry: 'The science is sufficiently uncertain to allow several rational narratives for what has caused 20th century warming and how the 21st century climate will evolve. These 20 scientists damage not only their own reputations, but they also damage the public perception of scientists as trustworthy sources of information. Most seriously, the coercion of scientists implied by this letter will discourage objectivity in scientific research and will discourage scientists from entering/staying in the field of climate research.'
