Grain experiment shows higher temperatures increase yield.

I love it when someone actually does an experiment, instead of using some subjective computer model.

Chinese scientists has increased crop yields by between 3 and 6% by increasing the temperature at which they grow grain.

Today’s Science results:

Scientific Method 1 – Computer Models 0

Let’s hear it for the Scientific Method.

James Lovelock was wrong!

James Lovelock, one of the world’s leading exponents of the theory of manmade Climate Change, has admitted in a telephone interview  with Ian Johnston of msnbc.com that he got it wrong. As recently as 2006 Lovelock wrote “before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.”

All credit to him that he has come out and is attempting to put the record straight. Let’s hope that this admission brings a little sanity back to the debate. Can we now please have some reasoned discussion on the subject and abandon the mantra of “The Science Is Settled.” Clearly it is not.


IPCC Models predict the exact opposite of what actually happens. No surprise there then.

“the IPCC argues that feedbacks from increased water evaporation will lead to enhanced warming. This is not observed in those regions most effected by water vapour. In fact the opposite seems to be the case implying negative feedback.” http://clivebest.com/blog/

Solar Trust goes bust

When US Energy Secretary Steven Chu gave Solar Trust (a solar energy company) a $2.1 billion conditional loan guarantee, he boasted that it would prove that ‘when we rev up the great American innovation machine, we can out-compete any other nation’. Does the demise of Solar Trust then prove that America can’t? Let’s hope not.


Science is not a seeker of truth but a seeker of error.

“To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact”
