New Scientists Mag Backpedals on Climategate?

Posted by greg2213 on January 16, 2010

New Scientist Mag, well known for it’s strongly supportive stance of the AGW hypothesis, seems to have backpedaled somewhat on the “Himalayan Glaciers Gone by 2035” statements. They also seem to have acknowledged that Climategate has damaged the credibility of the “climate scientists.”

Here’s the story: New Scientist Magazine Backpeddles In CYA Move and Acknowledges Climate Science Has Been Damaged by the Climategate Emails

Speaking of Climategate, there’s a new book out on that very subject. Check out the WUWT announcement, here: first book on Climategate

Update: JoNova chimes in on the subject, points out that the story may be getting some traction, and adds some good points about the “quality” of the  IPPC process. WUWT also has an update on the story and more than a few comments.

Update: WUWT prints IPCC “retraction” of glacier story. IPCC admits error on Himalayan glacier melt fiasco

  2. China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
    Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
    If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
    I came across this article about Haiti Earthquake in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

      Hmmm… a bit off-topic, aren’t we?

      A) I don’t believe the US would attack China if we had such a weapon, and b) I don’t believe that it exists in the first place. Though Richard Hoagland (sp?) seems to believe it does. I also don’t think anyone seriously blamed Russia for the Georgian quake.

      Also, consider this. The US has a long history of handing countries back to their people when we’re done kicking out whoever was in charge. Even after spending zillions to rebuild said country. Look at Iraq. Look at the losing countries in WWII. What other country does that? Now, if the old USSR has such a weapon…

      So no, I don’t buy any of the “US beamed China” or “US made the Haitian Quake” stories.

      Is a man made quake possible? I suppose if you detonated a nuke in just the right place in a fault you could set off a quake. Seismic detectors all over the world would “see” it, though.

      Hmmm…. I suppose there might be other ways to do it, but I think a black-ops kill squad would far more precisely hit the goal at far lower cost.

      Quakes are like “climate change.” They happen and they aren’t predictable and we can’t do much to stop them anyway. Our best hope is to predict extreme events as far in advance as possible (and CC is not an extreme event) and warn the areas most in danger so people can escape/prepare.
