Input for Beddington 'Preparing for the Future'
'Sir' John Beddington has released a report titled 'Preparing for the Future'. His blog on this report requests input, and I responded with the attached comment (the screen capture above), simply questioning how 'Sir' John, who is aware that there are 'issues' (!) with the Hockey Stick, can proceed to scare the public on this subject. We shall see if this question passes moderation, or receives a response.
The 'Sir' John Beddington post can be accessed here.
Update 7/14/2011: All credit to 'Sir' John, my post appeared! Now, will he reply...?
Update 8/3/2011: 'Sir' John posted a 'response' here but (of course) this did not address the established issues with the Hockey Stick, which he had previously said that he knew about. Extraordinary to have such a preference for pushing policy, over science, for a science adviser. Anyone might think that 'Sir' John had an agenda. I left 'Sir' John another question, which went into moderation (as shown below).
Updated 8/20/2011: Apparently the 'Sir' John plot is to allow postings to occur in a delay fashion, and then to have his shills respond once the posters have lost interest. And as plans go, this appears to be 'working' - no body it too interested in waiting weeks for a response to a comment. But, in the meantime, I'll post my occasional contributions here, e.g.:
Your comment is awaiting moderation.

I’m delighted to read that ‘lolwot’ and/or Sir John believe that no policy is based on the discredited hockey stick graph.
(Now would be a good time to bring the indefensible hockey stick lie to the attention of school children forced to sit through interminable indoctrination sessions on this subject).
Perhaps ‘lolwot’ and/or Sir John could succinctly and scientifically summarize the anticipated effects of proposed UK energy policy changes on:
a) global temperatures and
b) the UK’s economy?
