    Thanks, Paul, for your blog.

    Those of us in Missouri continue to suffer ice storms, bitter cold, and loss of faith in our government’s AGW tale.

    Yet not a single member of the consensus science community has challenged the data in Figures 1-3 (pages 17-29 of Chapter 2 of my autobiography) or the conclusion that the Sun’s core is a pulsar remnant from the birth of the solar system.

    Is the United States National Academy of Sciences like “a generation of vipers,” a private, self-perpetuating organization that reviews the budgets of federal agencies for Congress and thus guides their research, with little or no limit on conflict of interest?

    From their Jan 2014 Archive:

    “Oxford University leads £2 million research project on UK droughts and water scarcity
    Posted on 13th January 2014.

    A £2 million, three-year multi-disciplinary research project will provide new insights to minimise and manage the harmful impacts of droughts and water scarcity in the UK.”

      ‘Can do that in less than 5 seconds … increasing population and decreasing water storage capacity … fix the old dams/reservoirs and build new ones.

    Your link in turn links to highlights from the report in an article 4 March 2013, by Alex Peel
    He quotes from the paywalled report by Rahiz M, New M,
    -“droughts could become more severe in the UK, particularly in the winter months and towards the latter half of the century.”
    – “It’s the southern water resource regions that need to think about shared risks,’

    Do they predict floods aswell ? NO mention at all
    “It’s all very well borrowing from your neighbour if they’ve got something to lend, but if your neighbours are broke as well, then it becomes a bit of a problem.’
    “New and his team will now investigate which long-term water management options are best for coping with the UK’s future risk from droughts”

    … I guess you can buy any scientific OPINION you want, but it’s not going to be much practical use
    .. only VALIDATED science gives you something useful that is worth the money.

    Just follow the money, as usual. About time these idiots with more money than sense did so, including HRH Charlie boy.

    That has got to be the best joke since the Environment Agency said they couldn’t see an end to the drought.
    It has barely stopped raining since, the country is being drowned so they give them £2M to study drought.

    I will be 100 years old in 2049. I don’t care about 2114. Try something else to scare me.

    They’re right for the wrong reason. Colder, drier air leads to droughts, not warmer, wetter air.
