It’s still not the sun, stupid

Real science is about the gathering of multiple lines of evidence, bulding on previous research that built on research before that.

Climategate: one year later

November 17 marked the one year anniversary of the hacking of CRU mail servers and the release of thousands of emails between climate scientists. Though irrelevant to the scientific case for anthropogenic climate change, the event was significant in the public relations sphere. I have not found the time to do a proper memorial write…

JC does not understand the internet!

This comment may explain alot a lot about how Judith Curry is able to publish demonstrable tripe and completely brush off all substantive criticism: “If what i said was utter nonsense, why is anyone here talking about it, I have 440 comments in 24 hours.” It leaves me speechless.
