    G'day fellow human beans

    Ever wondered how the scientific peer review process is conducted? Well, wonder no more. Stephan Lewandowsky, a Winthrop Professor and an Australian Professorial Fellow at the University of Western Australia, has written a brilliant article that demystifies the process in clear and concise terminology: The peer reviewed literature has spoken.

    Happy reading, Marko.

    Dear friends

    In terms of human-induced climate change:

    The following website is where one can find practically every peer reviewed paper ever published on the subject (and more):

    This blog is about climate science with an emphasis on the observations of the climate change that is currently ongoing. Specifically the emphasis will be on those observations that show that it is mankind that is and has been causing this current climate change by greenhouse gas emissions. The AGW in the title stands for Anthropogenic Global Warming, which is a commonly used term for the current human-caused climate change.

    I am not a professional climate scientist, but just an interested layman who has been getting familiar particularly to the observational side of the issue by reading the research papers on the subject. I hope I can offer some relevant information on the subject especially as the public discussion on the subject tends to focus more on what climate models can do instead of emphasizing the observational body of evidence which is very large and in my opinion convincing by itself even without far-reaching climate theories or models.

    Cheerio, Marko.
     
  3. Hmmm, ...dont foreget to tell the IPCC all about how to conduct peer review. Seems they is a little vague on the concept -

    "The head of the IPCC Dr. Rajenda Pachauri had said: India was ‘arrogant’ to deny global warming link to melting glaciers..." https://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/01...ier-melt-pachauris-arrogance-claim-backfires/

    ............. :D

  4. Peer review fairy-tale

    Dang !, another female sceptic -

    "...In June 2007 Rajendra Pachauri, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), gave an interview to an Indian publication that appeared in five parts. In the section titled "The science is absolutely first rate," Pachauri declared: "The IPCC doesn't do any research itself. We only develop our assessments on the basis of peer-reviewed literature."...

    What's bizarre is that an examination of the comments submitted by IPCC reviewers following both the first and second draft of Chapter 5 - and the responses to them - suggests that those involved appear to have taken part in a shared hallucination. A great deal of lip service was paid to peer-review, but in practice it was a next to meaningless concept...."
