As the London Times reports, a scientific offensive against the Anthropogenic Global Warming popular delusion is actively underway in Britain.
Britainâ€™s premier scientific institution is being forced to review its statements on climate change after a rebellion by members who question mankindâ€™s contribution to rising temperatures.
The Royal Society has appointed a panel to rewrite the 350-year-old institutionâ€™s official position on global warming. It will publish a new â€œguide to the science of climate changeâ€ this summer. The society has been accused by 43 of its Fellows of refusing to accept dissenting views on climate change and exaggerating the degree of certainty that man-made emissions are the main cause.
The society appears to have conceded that it needs to correct previous statements. It said: â€œAny public perception that science is somehow fully settled is wholly incorrect â€” there is always room for new observations, theories, measurements.â€ This contradicts a comment by the societyâ€™s previous president, Lord May, who was once quoted as saying: â€œThe debate on climate change is over.â€
The admission that the society needs to conduct the review is a blow to attempts by the UN to reach a global deal on cutting emissions. The Royal Society is viewed as one of the leading authorities on the topic and it nominated the panel that investigated and endorsed the climate science of the University of East Anglia.
