    climate change, something to keep “researchers” busy, like YK2, bird flu, pig flu, SARS, monkey flu

  3. Do you have an editorial position on CC, Deborah?

    Jock Allison raises an interesting subject in today’s letters to the Editor ODT. Just look at the reply from Alan Mark. Twice he uses the word likely in his argument. “Climate warming trends over the past century are very LIKELY due to human activities” and “It is LIKELY that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)”.
    When did LIKELY become a scientific fact.

      I wonder what the percentage would have been if the group chosen for the survey had been geologists!
      “Goodness yes, it’s definitely man-made climate change, there’s never been anything like this before, not in the last umpty-squiddle-tumpty thousands of years” – geologists try to look serious until researcher leaves the room. Earnest researcher wonders why raucous laughter erupts the moment she takes her questionnaires and exits delighted with the success of her home-knitted organic survey.

    There’s only one scientific treatise represented above and it wasn’t written by the professor emeritus!
