Deltoid's Tim Lambert Bursts Peiser's Bubble

Deltoid blogger Tim Lambert has dealt a decisive (and entertaining) blow against Dr. Benny Peiser, the Liverpool John Moores University anthropologist who had tried to deny the accuracy ofr Naomi Oreskes’ research on climate science in the peer-review literature.

Oreskes had reported in Science magazine that none of the 928 peer-reviewed articles she had found between 1993 and 2003 had disagreed with the consensus that human activity is causing climate change. Peiser took another look at the literature (or said he did) and reported that 34 papers denied or refuted the consensus.

Lambert looked at Peiser’s reporting, demanded a list of the papers and finally established that Peiser could find only one such paper – not peer-reviewed – from the AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists).

Bye bye Benny.
