Submission + - 3000 Swimming Robots Report No Global Warming 2

NobleSavage writes: As reported by NPR, 3000 Swimming Robots have been been busy plying the ocean collecting temperatures data and the results have scientists puzzled:

These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years. That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren't quite understanding what their robots are telling them. This is puzzling in part because here on the surface of the Earth, the years since 2003 have been some of the hottest on record. But Josh Willis at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory says the oceans are what really matter when it comes to global warming.

Submission + - UK Judge Finds Nine Errors In Al Gore Documentary 1

An anonymous reader writes: A British High Court judge has identified nine significant errors in Al Gore's Oscar-winning global warming documentary, 'An Inconvenient Truth'. Mr Justice Burton agreed with Gore that climate change was caused by man-made greenhouse gases, but found that some of Gore's claims were exaggerated and motivated by politics rather than science. The judge ruled that the documentary can be shown to British school children, but only if it was accompanied by guidance notes to balance its views.
