Miles Saltiel, writing at the Adam Smith Institute blog, has called for a royal commission on climate. In a post discussing Ed Hawkins' now famous graph of model predictions and observations, he suggests that climatologists' predictions are now falling apart.
So let the Prime Minister launch a Royal Commission to revisit the evidence, modelling and consequent policy. The composition of such a Commission would have to be carefully chosen to ensure balance. The public interest needs statisticians and scientists from outside the hermetic world of “climate science” to challenge insiders robustly and in full view. Also in the interests of transparency, the DPP should seize data such as papers from the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia for examination by forensic statisticians. The Commission should be given ample time to get it right - five years at least.
