In fact we have re-published Melbourne Railway Engineer Driver and Unionist, Peter Faux' challenge here on this blog - but the original is on the blog of the adjudicator: (link)
Peter Laux, Locomotive Engineman from Australia, “will pay $10,000 (AUS) for a conclusive argument based on empirical facts that increasing atmospheric CO2 from fossil fuel burning drives global climate warming.”Warmists of the world: The ball is in your court. The $10K Climate Challenge has been open for three plus years without a single serious challenge.

THIS challenge has been available for the Alarmists for more than three years; so far there has not been one serious scientific challenge to Peter's Challenge.
Wouldn't you think that the World Governments, the bodies who wish to penalise ordinary citizens who use fossil fuel sources of energy, would be running to support their (non-scientific) policy position. But, with the exception of a few fairly unscientific attempts, Peter's $10K is still sitting safely in his coffers.
So why do we keep hearing stories like:
But wait! There's more!
The Nasa climate scientists who claimed 2014 set a new record for global warmth last night admitted they were only 38 per cent sure this was true.And when you look at the science, it was nowhere near the warmest, even of the last 18 years: (See below)
Vastly more detailed images from two new international meteorology satellites could bring a much sharper focus to Australian weather forecasting.This August body, the Bureau of Meteorology, announced that the town of Alice Springs had had its hottest day ever this week: (link)
The ABC was told on Tuesday night the temperature at Alice Springs airport reached 46 degrees Celsius at 3:21pmHowever, it turned out that the BoM misread a thermometer and the reading was 5ºC less than the announced record temperature.
"The details are still under investigation," (BoM) climatologist Joel Lisonbee told the ABC. It looks like we had an instrument fault with our automatic weather station at the Alice Springs Airport. We do have other thermometers on site."
"We have some mercury and glass thermometers that did not show that spike to 46C."They showed the maximum temperature yesterday to be only 41.5C."This blog asks:
Did you hear 2014 was the hottest year ever?
Did you hear THEN that 2014 WAS not the hottest year ever?
Did you heat that 46ºC was the hottest hottest day ever for the Alice?
Did you THEN hear that Alice's Hottest day was a BoM error?
The Alarmist media announces the hottest year ever but doesn't announce the retraction.
The Alarmist media announce the Alice Spring Record Temperature but doesn't announce the retraction.
