A report of false scares

Bob Carter, David Evans, Stewart Franks and William Kininmonth peer-review amongst themselves the report on global warming that the Climate Commission last week gave the Gillard Government.

Their conclusion:

Notwithstanding the misassertions of the Climate Commissioners, independent scientists (by that we mean us four) are confident overall that there is no evidence of global warming (well apart from the upper atmosphere cooling, the tropopause height rising, nights warming more than days, sea level pressure rising, precipitation changing as expected from anthropogenic forcing, ocean heat content changing as expected from anthropogenic forcing, downward longwave radiation increasing, upward longwave radiation is decreasing)... evidence of sea level rise at a rate greater than the 20th century natural rise of ~1.7 mm/yr; no evidence of acceleration in sea-level change in either the tide gauge or satellite records; and nothing unusual about the behaviour of mountain glaciers, Arctic sea ice or the Greenland or West Antarctic ice sheets.
