The Hockey Schtick: NOAA: AGW Didn't cause Record Snowfall or Increased Precipitation; Models "very different" from reality
This evidence suggests the mid-Atlantic’s trends in precipitation are mainly due to natural variability, not human influence.
ClimateWatch Magazine » Forensic Meteorology Solves the Mystery of Record Snows
After a series of record-setting snowstorms hit the mid-Atlantic region this winter, some people asked NOAA if humans could somehow be to blame. Specifically, they wanted to know if human-induced global warming could have caused the snowstorms due to the fact that a warmer atmosphere holds more water vapor.

The CSI Team’s analysis indicates that’s not likely. They found no evidence — no human “fingerprints” — to implicate our involvement in the snowstorms.
Boost agroecological farming to feed world and save climate, UN expert says | Spero News
Agroecological farming, which improves food production and farmers? incomes while at the same time protecting the soil, water and climate, could feed an estimated world population of nine billion people by 2050 and go a long way to save the climate, if implemented now, experts at a United Nations
Skeptics blacklist used in peer-reviewed paper
Personally, I don't think this even qualifies as science, I'd call it trash talking. And I'm not surprised to see Scheider's name attached to the document either. Climategate proved that many environmental scientists would rather encourage a good 'ol boys network than engage in an open debate.
No Frakking Consensus: Climate Bible's New Authors Announced
...Now this is exactly the problem with United Nations' efforts. On the one hand, the public has been told IPCC reports are the considered opinion of "the world's top climate experts." On the other hand, those orchestrating its next edition have spent a great deal of time worrying about nationalities and gender when selecting who gets a voice. Those two concepts are in direct conflict.
If the names on this list truly represent the crème de la crème, why is the CV of every one of these people not available online and linked to from within these lists of names – so that members of the public can examine these credentials for themselves?
