Harper Follows Bush In Adopting Sham Emissions Measurement

When  Prime Minister Harper announced he will adopt an “intensity based” system for measuring greenhouse emissions, he was following the lead of President George W. Bush in using “greenhouse intensity” as a bogus way to measure carbon emissions.  The “intensity based” system would do nothing to cut emissions – only marginally slow their growth. Moreover, as a “voluntary” mechanism, they would attract few, if any, serious polluters. “Intensity based” is merely a new form of jargon for “business as usual” while the world burns.

Tim Ball: the Last Skeptic Standing

In an open letter to the Royal Society, reported here, Dr. Tim Ball says that ‘scientific inquiry is unique because it requires falsifiability’ and ‘The beauty of science is that no issue is ever “settled”, that no question is beyond being more fully understood, that no conclusion is immune to further experimentation. And yet for the first time in history, the Royal Society is shamelessly using the media to say emphatically: “case closed” on all issues related to climate change.’
