  Sea Level at Hobart, Tasmania: A Failure to Authenticate  -  In April 2003, three of the scientists involved in the earlier claims that sea level had risen at the `Isle of the Dead' published a new paper in Geophysical Research Letters in which they sought to reinforce their claims with new information about tides and sea level at nearby Hobart, Tasmania, information which had not been presented by them in their earlier, more detailed, paper of November 2002.   The key reference they provided for this new information proved to be inadequate and of little value in supporting their claims.   But another, more significant, problem in their paper was also found.    (11 June 2003)

Suzuki's Home Town - London, Ontario, Canada  - David Suzuki says winter comes later now in his boyhood home town.  But the weather records from there and nearby show his claim is false.  (26 Apr 03)

 Tasmanian Sea Levels:  The Isle of the Dead Revisited   (2 Feb 2003) A detailed report on the 160-year-old sea level benchmark at Port Arthur, Tasmania, which some scientists think is evidence of sea level rise, but which actually shows no such thing.

How the London Sunday Times has been distorting climatic data without so much as a murmur from the originators of that data.

   The Nenana Ice Classic: Betting on Warming  (28 Oct 2001). Alaskans have been betting on the date and time of the river ice breakup at Nenana every Spring. Now the Greenhouse Industry is in on the act, with some sloppy science in `Science' in the run-up to the COP7 climate conference at Marrakech, Morocco.

The Return of `Moby Dick' (17 April 2001) Two new papers about the deep oceans in the journal Science which make lots of questionable assumptions rendering their conclusions equally rubbery. 

A Smoking Pea-Shooter (19 March 2001) The latest scare story from the industry is that human influence on the  greenhouse effect has now been measured in a British study of two sets of satellite data 27 years apart. This report examines the details of the study and reveals some surprising facts not reported in the media, including what may be a significant flaw in the study itself. 

The Top of the World: Is the North Pole Turning to Water? (2 Feb 2001) Water at the North Pole was big news in August 2000. Was it just another media scare story, or is the Arctic sea ice really disappearing?  This report details the whole issue of Arctic sea ice.  Also - the BBC.  See their latest report on Arctic Sea Ice here

The new dogma by both the IPCC and US National Assessment is that the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age during the last millennium never happened. Their claim is both false and politically inspired.
