    Someone admitted that your conclusions are mistaken?

    No, I think William has RP Sr in mind.. ;-)

    It seems to be getting more and more common for anonymous septics to invent scientific credentials in an effort to enhance their credibility, as with our friend DR above. It’s a sign of progress.

    That RP Sr quote from his Drought 2002 in Colorado – An unprecedented drought or a routine drought? in Pure Appl. Geophys., is the passage I’m using in one of my plans at my new place on the Front Range, to justify lower water use. It’s a good paper.

    Best,

  6. Sorry, I cannot see where R Pielke Sr has changed his mind? Isn’t this what he has been saying for years? Can you explain what you are refering to?

    [Isn't "my conclusions on the role of humans on global warming, and climate change, in general, are mistaken" clear enough? -W]

    Being misquoted is the same thing as being mistaken, like, mistaken for someone else.

    You have to be vewy, vewy cwevver to follow the logic.

    Its a poorly worded sentence. He is correcting the mistaken view attributed to him;

    “Pielke argues that climate models overstate the role humans play in warming the globe”.

    His real view is;

    “The climate models understate the role that humans play in warming…”

    [Ahem. I think you are missing the joke. Of course its a poorly worded sentence. Did you really think that I thought that RP had recented? -W]

    Very funny.

    I followed your sense, W, right through to the word “recented”. As a typo, that threw me: “repented” or “recanted” could work ;-)
