About

Whatever your opinion, climate change is one of the most prominent issues of the times. It relates to the well being of the planet and its occupants. At the same time it incurs the expenditure of billions of dollars and much of it comes from public money.

We are a small group who have followed the global warming/ climate change issue for some years. Initially we didn’t know which version was correct but we noticed several things.

One was the frequent use of predictions, often scary, that seemed on the surface to be believable. We wondered whether anyone ever went back to see if the predictions turned out to be true.

We present predictions made over the past 40 years or so, particularly those that are contradictory or so extreme they’re humorous.

The blog commenced towards the end of 2014 and as it develops we will be continually adding new material and making changes to the layout.

The site is mainly operated by Ian; “I worked as a legal officer in a government department until I retired a few years ago. I’ve followed the climate change debate for some years.

It was the name-calling by AGW supporters that first made me suspect that the case wasn’t as strong as we had been led to believe. If the case for catastrophic manmade global warming were as settled as it is claimed, it would not be necessary for its supporters to resort to things like “denier watch lists”, labels like “flat earthers” and attempts to undermine opponents’ credibility rather than answer on the evidence.

If the case for man-made catastrophic global warming was strong, the case would speak for itself.

A lot of the discussion seems to miss the point. Few people dispute the world has been warming slightly over the last few centuries or that carbon dioxide has some unspecified effect on the climate. But as far as I can see, there is no convincing evidence the warming is unprecedented or dangerous.

But, as in all things, I’m willing to listen to rational argument and evidence. And, as in all things, it is not possible to be convinced without hearing from both sides.

The site is aimed at people like me, ie not scientifically trained, and my intention is to post material that is entertaining and thought provoking”

We welcome suggestions about either layout or content. In response to a couple of questions;

– A post first appears on the home page and is then moved to one of the categories. The right sidebar contains a full list of categories while the secondary menu above contains the 6 or 7 most popular.
– We’ve kept a screen capture of the majority of quotes we’ve used and detailed references of others, so we could verify virtually any post if we were challenged.
– We’ve referred to several sources we’ve found helpful in the Acknowledgements link at the foot of each page, including numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.
