Another boxing fight ... "Spectator Debate" on 29 March 2011

... which may be fun to watch. Maybe there will be video footage.

From the announcement:  

The number of people in the UK who do not believe in global warming has doubled in the last two years, according to a poll from the Office for National Statistics. Does this represent an alarming success in a war against science? Or the common sense of a British public who can see the claims of the climate alarmists dissolve before their eyes?

Join the Spectator debate, chaired by Andrew Neil, on Tuesday 29 March at the Royal Geographical Society, London, SW7 between 6 p.m. and 8.30 p.m.


Lord Nigel Lawson
Chairman, Global Warming Policy Foundation

Dr Benny Peiser
Director, Global Warming Policy Foundation

Graham Stringer MP
Member of House of Commons Science and Technology Committee


Professor Tim Palmer
Royal Society Research Professor in Climate Physics, Oxford University

Simon Singh

Professor Sir David King
Director of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, and former Government Chief Scientific Adviser

Given the skeptics' winning streak when these type events are held, the early odds will probably favor them. Of course, these happen so rarely, the sample size is pretty small.

Stan, why do you consider skeptics being favored in such events?
