Wildly exciting, no? No: its just the Global Cooling wars, part n. This one is Lamb, H. H. Is the Earth’s Climate Changing? The UNESCO Courier: a window open on the world; Vol. XXVI (8/9), 17-20, and its the latest “killer” reference added to Poptech (tagline: the blog that’s too frightened to let a Stoat…

More from buzzfeed. While I’m here, Sham journals scam authors is pretty good from JA. But really: a journal with no website? Do they still write with ink quills?

The Economist is read by all the most Important People (what, you say you don’t read it? Well…), so what they say about GW matters (even if they sometimes talk twaddle it still matters). What they are currently saying under the byline “Climate change may be happening more slowly than scientists thought. But the world…

I’m sure my headline is over-optimistic. But its certainly looking good, compared to the doom-laden view mid week. And (insofar as I can tell, not having any specialised insight) the correct solution has been found – so much so, that you might wonder why it wasn’t found immeadiately.

Eli offers us a new wheelchair but I think its a man slumped to the ground after smashing his head against the wall, leaving a trail of blood dribbling down. Refs * The two epochs of Marcott by Jos Hagelaars. * WUWT is still fulminating (I throw that in as a token gesture of non-tribality,…

Its hardly an original question. And the answer (we don’t know) isn’t original either. In case you were wondering, this is Overland and Wang, GRL 2013, doi: 10.1002/grl.50316 (PDF courtesy of V). Different but not entirely different to A sea ice free summer Arctic within 30 years?, also in GRL; or even A sea ice…

What could possibly be a more coherent, convincing and above all evidence-based argument than this? SIR – You were wrong to attack the financial-transactions tax (FTT) that is being implemented by 11 European Union states (“Bin it”, February 23rd). You dragged up the bad experience of Sweden, which ditched its own FTT in 1991. But…

Climategate 3.0?

Apparently, something called “climategate 3.0″ has occurred. This caused massive excitement in the denialosphere for a day, but now everyone has quietly forgotten it.
