    A new briefing paper published today by the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) examines environmentalists’ statements about droughts and heatwaves and finds them to be highly misleading. Claims that droughts are getting worse are not supported in the scientific literature. This is true for both on a global level and for the UK, where […]

  • Richard Lindzen: Global Warming And The Irrelevance Of Science

    • Date: 14/03/16
    • Professor Richard Lindzen

    In many fields, governments have a monopoly on the support of scientific research. Ideally, they support the science because they believe objective research to be valuable. Unfortunately, as anticipated by President Eisenhower in his farewell speech from January 17, 1961 (the one that also warned of the military-industrial complex), “Partly because of the huge costs […]

    Is the global warming pause over for good — or will it continue once the current El Nino dies down? That is the key question raised by Dr David Whitehouse, the GWPF’s science editor, in a new video. The current El Nino is one of the strongest on record. It has elevated global temperatures to […]

    A new paper published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation explains how statistical forecasting methods can provide an important contrast to climate model-based predictions of future global warming. The repeated failures of economic models to generate accurate predictions has taught many economists a healthy scepticism about the ability of their own models, regardless of […]

    • Global Warming Policy Foundation

    Greenpeace and some journalists are alleging that the Global Warming Policy Foundation does not subject reports to peer review, and that our Academic Advisory Council was made available for the purpose of reviewing a proposed study for a fossil fuel company. These claims are entirely false. The peer review process used by the GWPF is […]

  • Matt Ridley: The Climate Wars And The Damage To Science

    • Date: 05/11/15
    • Matt Ridley

    Most disappointing of all is the way that science – especially the leaders of the world’s science academies – have joined the climate campaign, not just demonizing those who say they are not convinced we face catastrophe, but turning a blind eye to the distortion and corruption of the scientific process itself. At the heart […]
