Call for climate Royal Commission

by Dennis Jensen
Quadrant Online, November 16, 2010

At an assemblage of physicists at the British Association in 1900, one of the 19th Century’s most influential physicists and mathematicians, Lord William Thomson Kelvin said, “There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.”

This statement appears myopic today and would certainly be lambasted by the likes of Einstein, Schrödinger and Hawking.

Arguments by the Gillard government that the science of climate change is “settled” and “the debate is over” are not dissimilar and will leave future generations in no doubt Labor is using flawed science to drive this tax grab.

Science is all about asking the right questions. If we went back 1000 years we could answer every scientific question someone might have, based on knowledge of the day. However, follow-up questions would lead to a point where we would not yet have discovered definitive answers. Such is the nature of science. Asking the wrong question or one with the presumption of a result fails to respect scientific practice and leads to answers that history will judge as misguided and unscientific.

The Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change has been asked the wrong question. Its mission statement reads in part,

The role of the IPCC is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change.

The IPCC has presumed anthropogenic factors as the cause of climate change.

You are exactly right.

Arrogance. That is the problem.

But the poor climatologists who were caught cheating are mere puppets of an international alliance that is using science as a propaganda tool to control people:

Al Gore, world leaders, NAS, the Royal Society, the international Alliance of National Academies, Science, Nature, the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee, PNAS, MNRS, public TV (BBC, PBS, etc), etc.
