More Bunk from Beck

(no, this is not about me!)

Over at Real Climate they have a debunking of another whooper from E. G. Beck. Just as he did with his ludicrous CO2 reconstruction, Beck tries to take science forward by putting the gears in reverse (is this really what a modern day Galileo would do?).

But even better than that, he apparently has to resort to good old fashioned fraud too. Read the details.

    Couldn't disagree with you more. The Global Warming panic is just plain insanity.

    In matters of science, not all opinions are equal. Thanks for yours.

    BTW, didn't you leave another comment under the "GW is a hoax" post complaining that I did not discuss "the data"? a) There are about 60 other articles in the series and most of them focus only on the science and b) where is your scientific case against the RC debunking of Beck's crap?

    There is a distinction to be made between the science and the panic.

    Many libertarian/conservative/ "Right" thinking people seem to regard the acceptance of anthropogenic warming as leading inexorably to the conclusion "and therefore we must all live in yurts".

    The argument has moved beyond the scientific to the political, where the majority opinion matters, and the decision is on the type of adaption humanity must make in response to climate charge.

    The lastest IPCC report supports the view that the worst hit are the least developed, so clearly the solutions for humanity are to be found in economic growth and new technology.

    Maintaining a strong critique of the misanthropic zero-growth position does not mean you have to ignore the scientific consensus.
