It has not taken long for the left wing press to attack the investigation into the integrity of global temperature records!

The UK’s most prominent climate change denial group is launching an inquiry into the integrity of global surface temperature records.

The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), established by notable climate-change sceptic Lord Lawson, announced an international team of “eminent climatologists, physicists and statisticians” would investigate the reliability of the current data.

Professor Terence Kealey, the former vice-chancellor of the University of Buckingham, has been appointed chair of the international temperature data review project.

Professor Kealey studied medicine at Oxford University before lecturing on clinical biochemistry, which is primarily concerned with the analysis of bodily fluids, at Cambridge University. It is unclear what experience he has in the field of climate change.

The other five commissioners of the data review project: Petr Chylek, Richard McNider, Roman…

Nepal Earthquake – Similar pattern seen at start of Little Ice Age | the WeatherAction News Blog

The BBC reported on a previous time when the same fault ruptured –

  • Saturday’s magnitude-7.8 earthquake struck to the north-west of Kathmandu
  • The last time the fault ruptured at this location was in back in 1344
  • It was preceded in 1255 by a big event to the east of Kathmandu
  • The last rupture there was in 1934, hinting strain might accumulate westward
  • 2015’s quake follows the pattern with a gap between events of 80 years or so
line

When Bollinger and his colleagues saw this historic pattern of events, they became greatly concerned.

“We could see that both Kathmandu and Pokhara would now be particularly exposed to earthquakes rupturing the main fault, where it likely last did in 1344, between the two cities,” explains Paul Tapponnier, from the Earth Observatory of Singapore, who was working with Bollinger.
