Curry, part 4

At last! I have a chance to be nice to Curry, which I’ve been waiting for. This opportunity is her comment reply to my comment question over at c-a-s, viz: I find the main text of the WG1 Report to be an accurate assessment of the science. The problem that I have with the WG1…

Dreaming of…

Ah, tis the electoral season, so it is no-holds-barred on the Tories. Thanks to Paul and Ow.ly. Original by Michael Schofield. I’ve cropped mine a little. Meanwhile, it looks like Brown is in trouble. Mind you, I’ve no idea if the original comment was justified ot not. Remember: Vote Green.

Oh well, everyone else has a gate, perhaps I can have one too. Incidentally the picture is there for two reasons: firstly I have far too many pix of Darling Daugther and no-one looks at them. If Jules can put up huts, I can do children. And second, it is a cunning attempt to make…

See attachment

Good grief. So I try to gmail someone a message, and I happen to say “see attachment” in my text, and when I press “send” up pops a little box “I notice you said see attachemnt, but there isn’t one. Is that alright?” or somesuch. Well, I thought it was interesting. This is (probably) Mr…

Curry, part 2: the papers

My general feeling about Judith Curry‘s stuff over at Collide-a-scape was that it was all tolerably vague. But there was one specfic. Over there, she copied Bishop Hill and proposed “Jones 1998 and Osborn and Briffa 2006″ as key neglected papers. More directly she has proposed: 1. The Spatial Extent of 20th-Century Warmth in the…

I’m #2!

On google searches for “stoat”, that is. And also number 3. I even took a pic of it. Meanwhile, a busy day and I’m tired. No time for more.

Curry

Eventually I decided to tone down the headline; Curry is wrong about a great many things, I think, but let’s be polite. So, all this is prompted by her Q+A for Keith Kloor. I fear I am going to have to read it. All of this segues into the “tribalist” stuff that I’m going to…

We interrupt your schedule of cats and rowing for a brief snark at the denialists: courtesy of mt, who clearly ventures where angels fear to tread, we have Newsletter: NZCLIMATE TRUTH NO 244 by Vincent Gray: THE FLAT EARTH… The attached graph is in all of the Reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change,…

The election

We have an alection in prospect, how exciting. I notice (well in fact *I* didn’t, but someone else did and told me) that the oh-so-important climate didn’t get a single mention in the Great Debate. Speaking of which: here is all you need to know: Or maybe you prefer digger porn?

HORRor

As trailed in March and promised recently I owe a report on the Head of the River Race (a follow up to the Hammersmith Head). Tune out now if you don’t care for boatie stuff. There is only one river, of course, the Thames; and only one head. We are insular folk. But the race…
