Global warming dissent

Christopher Booker had an article in the Telegraph recently, reporting on a major conference which questioned the consensus on global warming. (Climate dissent grows hotter as chill deepens). He refers to an interesting blog by Anthony Watts: Watts up with that. Booker comments that last year, Watts forced Nasa's Goddard Institute to correct a fundamental error in its data on US surface temperatures, to show that the hottest decade of the 20th century was not the 1990s but the 1930s.

Watts is a meteorologist who promotes energy saving and alternative energy generation and puts this into practice with a solar array on his own home. It's just that he wants to look at the figures responsibly - and has the expertise to do so.

The picture is from the blizzard of the last week which reached as far south as Texas and Arkansas.
