Benny Peiser is a former council member of SIS and organised the SIS second Cambridge Conference (1997) which was perhaps the apogee of our achievements, so far. Since then he has gone on to be a professor at Liverpool John Moores University and in more recent years, has worked on policy with the Global Warming Policy Forum, much hated by the Green Blob. He was invited to address a US senate committee on the subject and you can see a short video of his presentation at www.bishop-hill.net/blog/2014/12/2/benny-at-the-senate.html … which appears to have gone down well. Naturally, you would not have heard about this at the BBC. They have been telling us all day it has been the hottest year for ever. We can expect temperatures to plummet by the end of the week with snow on the way for sure. Have a nice day.
