(December 2, 2009) The correspondence I have received on Climategate — the leak two weeks ago of emails and computer files from Britain’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) that show global warming to be grossly misrepresented, if not an out-and-out fraud — can essentially be sorted into two categories: “Why isn’t this a bigger story?” or “Why does this matter?”
(December 2, 2009) The carbon credit market is quickly turning into one of the largest markets in the global economy. And as governments continue to step up their efforts to combat climate change, they’re increasingly turning to carbon credits as a means to do so.
(November 30, 2009) For anyone who doubts the power of the Internet to shine light on darkness, the news of the month is how digital technology helped uncover a secretive group of scientists who suppressed data, froze others out of the debate, and flouted freedom-of-information laws.
(November 27, 2009) Methods used to tabulate the number of experts who are skeptical of climate change leave something to be desired.
(November 26, 2009) The impression left by the Climategate emails is that the global warming game has been rigged from the start.
(November 26, 2009) Why political orthodoxy must not silence scientific argument.
(November 26, 2009) Leaked e-mails do not show climate scientists at their best.
(November 25, 2009) The Climategate e-mails seem to suggest that much of what the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claims is "settled science" is based on data manipulated to confirm assertions that man is dangerously altering our climate.
(November 24, 2009) Former Conservative chancellor Lord Lawson says he is not a climate change denier but is ‘sceptical’ about global warming policy.
(November 23, 2009) Yes, the hacked climate emails are damaging. But here’s the one you’d need to see if you wanted to show that manmade global warming is a scam.
(November 23, 2009) The University of East Anglia, whose stolen documents caused a furor of excitement among climate skeptics over the weekend, said today that it had called in police to investigate possible criminal activity. But university researchers may also find themselves in legal jeopardy if they deleted emails requested under the U.K.’s Freedom of Information (FOIA) legislation, a crime under U.K. law.
(November 23, 2009) Lord Lawson was right to call in today’s Times for an inquiry into the global warming scandal.
(November 23, 2009) The blogosphere is abuzz with news of the latest global warming scandal. A latter day “Daniel Ellsberg” has released the climate equivalent of the Pentagon Papers onto the web.
(November 3, 2009) The development of carbon markets worldwide has created a host of challenges for companies – and of these challenges, accounting is perhaps one of the least understood. After all, even Europe (a four-year veteran of carbon trading) still has not come to consensus on how to account for emission allowances.
(November 1, 2009) Austrailia’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) will soon require the largest emitters of greenhouse gases to offset their carbon footprint. Such schemes have already been subject to fraud, misstatement and the involvement of organised crime in the UK and Europe. Deloitte Forensic is now warning Australian companies and regulators to prepare for the potential fraud risks.
