LaSi vs EcMd: round two

Mark Lynas, one of the EcoMod crowd, has noticed what I pointed out – that Da Fadder is not on their side, indeed opposed. Whether the Bishop of Rome has noticed that the EcoMods disagree with him is another matter. ML roughly parallels what I said, but gets carried away with the goodness of his…

No, not Eli but The Economist. You’ll be unsurprised to learn that they have a somewhat different perspective, closer to mine, or perhaps vice versa. They do some half-hearted “analysis” of the South Africa and Israel disinvestment campaigns, but really all they do is point at a couple of graphs and say “its hard to…

This post was originally about Laudato Si. But it took ages to write, and then James wrote something incomprehensible [Update: CIP explains] which expressed some of the snark I was going to use; so I don’t need to do that bit. And then ATTP wrote yet another post about the Ecomodernists. The bit where I…

Matthew Parris in the Times; an opinion piece. However, the headline is incidental (and rather odd, since the article is mostly directed at Conservatives), what I wanted was the text, irritatingly pay-walled: This vaguely chimes with recent discussions, especially about the wording of [[Climate change denial]] (and the fun over WUWT). It turns out that…

Mays

Arrr, the ol’ spinnin’ post, its seen a thing or two over the years. You could probably reconstruct the headship changes from its various colours. Last painted by Downing, when they went head in Lents in 2014; Caius were too cool to repaint it when they stayed head in Mays of that year, or re-took…

Its all over bar the tidying up; see Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Sockpuppet investigation block/Proposed decision – which, somewhat confusingly, is the real decision. Chase-Me is stripped of all priv: CheckUser, Oversight and (once Arbcomm grew a spine) Sysop too. Oh, and independently, Contribsx is unblocked. See my prior post for context. The page I’ve linked to contain the…

Odd

Which is the odd one out? (from the Graun). [Update: and the answer is, the one on the far left, because it isn’t odd; as most people answered, with varying degrees of formality.] [Update, from the comments, CR offers us a rather easier “spot the odd one out”:]

Death of the pause

Never mind yer twitterings or blogospherics or facey bookers, when people come in future years to look back and ask “when did people stop wittering about the pause” they’ll see 2015-06-05T12:34:10‎ Yakushima (talk | contribs)‎ . .

The Graun and Shell

Once again the fearless Graun is out to name-n-shame Shell. Or something. I only noticed because of Dave Hone’s post. The Graun whinges: But the most damaging email is dated 8 May 2014… <stuff I don’t much care about> And it ends: “Regarding the gallery update, can I check whether you have touched base with…

Comment fakery at WUWT

I must admit that I’m surprised, because up till now I’ve not detected this, or heard of anyone complain of it. Routine censorship, of course, but fakery is a new thing. So: Potholes In Their Arguments is a post on the recent IMF report. I put in a comment pointing out that it was a…
