Scientific Consensus Again But How?

Roger Pielke Sr. reports in Misrepresentation Of Scientific Consensus By The Leadership Of Professional Organizations that a letter signed by the leadership of American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Biological Sciences, American Meteorological Society, American Society of Agronomy, American Society of Plant Biologists, American Statistical Association, Association of Ecosystem Research Centers, Botanical Society of America, Crop Science Society of America, Ecological Society of America, Natural Science Collections Alliance, Organization of Biological Field Stations, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and Society of Systematic Biolog directed to a US Senator, states that:
  • rigorous scientific research demonstrates that the greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary driver of AGW. These conclusions are based on multiple independent lines of evidence, and contrary assertions are inconsistent with an objective assessment of the vast body of peer-reviewed science.
Roger Pielke claims this is incorrect. As in the case of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences one may wonder on what scientific basis the statement by the scientific societies is made, but it will probably be equally difficult to find out...

Der Spiegel reports in Climatologists Baffled by Global Warming Time-Out that leading climate alarmist Mojib Latif admits:
  • At present, however, the warming is taking a break. (…) There can be no argument about that. We have to face that fact.
But the real shock is that The Examiner reports:
  • The Hadley Climatic Research Centre appears to have suffered a security breach earlier today, when an unknown hacker apparently downloaded 1079 e-mails and 72 documents of various types and published them to an anonymous FTP server. These files appear to contain highly sensitive information that, if genuine, could prove extremely embarrassing to the authors of the e-mails involved. Those authors include some of the most celebrated names among proponents of the theory of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).
BBC also reports on this amazing story without however revealing what is shocking. Anyway it may be another step towards the end of climate alarmism...see also Climate Science Corrupted
disclosing in particular the role of Bert Bolin...and the development of the new concept of scientific consensus. Compare with Spencer: Climategate and the Elitist Roots of Global Warming. The Hadley email correspondence is now searchable. See also Who leaked the Hadley CRU files and why?

Alarmism scepticism is entering Swedish Radio: Lindzen and Christy in P1-Morgon.
