A small note on the hoax

The recent hoax seems to have been taken down – sad. There is a story about it at Reuters and its everywhere else. I wanted to point out something which no-one else seems to have noticed, which was that the figures for the T and CO2 histories were very obviously faked. They were just straight…

Another problem with wave power

From the grauniad: Surfers fear smaller swell as Atlantic wave farm approved. Well you can’t make everyone happy.

Betting on sea ice?

Looking back over the past sea ice record, I see that a min year is very rarely followed by another record. But some people are getting so carried away by this years ice, they might not realise that. So does anyone want to put an interesting amount of money, at (say) even odds, on there…

RP Sr has had two previous attempts to knock holes in the IPCC WG I and they were both embarassing failures ([1] and [2] (the latter expanded at 2a)). Emboldened by this, he’s had a third go which is just as bad. Am I being too cruel and unkind here? I’m assuming anyone posting to…

Global warming explained

Yes, its… well I’m not quite sure what it it, but its wacky, and all the planets are taking part. See here. Page 1 is only silly; but page 2 gets seriously wacky: The “cause and effect” of these remarkable planetary transformations, we believe, is explained by appealing to a new form of Physics —…

Rabett vs Michaels

Eli Rabett has some fun with Patrick Michaels.

NSIDC has made a select set of images viewable through the popular interactive desktop application, Google Earth. Currently, Google Earth users can view images showing permafrost, snow, sea ice extent, and photographs of glaciers. Distribution of permafrost, snow, and ice are displayed as overlays on the Google Earth base map. Snow and ice information are…

RP Sr is advertising a “balanced” climate meeting. And why is he so confident of balance? Well, check out the list of organisers and speakers. You could play bingo with them :-). And if that isn’t enough, good ol’ Sonja A.Boehmer-Christiansen offers in the comment to publish the results… with friends like that…
