November 2016

Our November meeting was part of “Manchester, European City of Science”. Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, of the University of Bristol, spoke on “Climate models and climate data: confusion and misinformation vs. scientific reality”. Over fifty members and guests of the Society had registered their interest in hearing Professor Lewandowsky and they were not disappointed. In a brilliantly clear presentation, he demonstrated that when people are shown a time series chart of global temperature, taken out of the emotive context of global warming, they conclude that there is an increasing trend. He then turned to the various meteorological models of climate and showed that these all carry the same message.
