Climate Change: Don't Believe The Hype!


I came across an article on the Independent's website the other day which nicely surmises what I've been feeling recently about the 'climate change' debate. A lot of sceptics felt vindicated by the climategate scandal and there were implications that in some way the incident disproves all of the science which points towards anthropogenic global warming.

Whilst I agree with the sceptics that the alleged misconduct of the minority of climate scientists involved does damage the credibility of the science, I don't believe that it gives anyone carte blanche to completely ignore the evidence their studies have produced.

As the world's leading scientists work on the 5th assessment report for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change I think we have to listen very carefully to their findings. Hopefully when the government's independent inquiry reveals their findings in March, we can put this controversy to bed and focus once more on the science of climate change and the actions we need to take to reduce it and mitigate against its impacts.

Onwards & upwards!
