Best News Of The Week

At a dinner over the weekend , a more-liberal friend asked what I thought we ought to do about climate.

I gave a short version of the 3% solution argument, and then added that we need to take a breath, step back, and redo the last decade of climate science in a calm, fact-based, transparent way so that we had – at minimum – a set of temperature data that we could all rely on as a baseline for modeling.

Well, this morning, guess what?

At a meeting Monday of 150 climate scientists, representatives of Britain’s weather office proposed that the world’s climatologists start all over again and produce a new trove of global temperature data that is open to public scrutiny and “rigorous” peer review.

  1. Definitely a great idea, except for the misuse of the term “peer review”. Hopefully that mistake was entirely on the part of the journalists and not the scientists being reported on.
