Or, The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government3. From Tacitus, Annals. I wanted to say something about the Trump victory over Hillary2. I find that writing down what I actually want to say is difficult, because my thoughts are not entirely clear on the matter. But – searching for a latin proverb…

I haven’t read the paper (Observed Arctic sea-ice loss directly follows anthropogenic CO2 emission; Dirk Notz and Julienne Stroeve; Science 03 Nov 2016: DOI: 10.1126 / science.aag2345), of course, because it is paywalled. Curiously, it doesn’t seem to have made anyone else’s blog (a paper about sea ice in Science, and everyone ignores it like…

WATN: it’s November

Those who poke around in obscure corners of the wub may have noticed that Force X from Outer Space was due to be published in October: We are ramping up the end of this series because we’ve been informed that both of David’s papers will be published in October — one on the error in…

Um, well, yes. What is this stuff? Pointed out to me first by Russell – see-also his Troglodyte narrative. This is about something sent to, or from, John Podesta which has surfaced via the increasingly-suspect Wikileaks. Which is to say MEMORANDUM JANUARY 28, 2014. CLIMATE: A UNIFYINF THEORY TO THE CASE.

Location fun

This will be old hat to most people but I’ve discovered two funky new location-type things today. Number one, after I got a puncture and so needed a taxi back home, was getting a text from the taxi company saying “your driver is 2 mins away; click this to track him” whereupon I did, and…

It seems a shame to be not discussing the greatest political scandal of the age wasting clickbait: Exposed: How top university helped secure £9million of YOUR money by passing off rivals’ research as its own… to bankroll climate change agenda. That is by David Rose, who is an idiot1, in the Daily Fail, which is…

Found via the Beeb but also available from Youtube. Lovely. Refs * Applications are invited for an artist to join HMS Protector for a three to four week placement during the Antarctic summer season (January to April 2017, precise dates TBC). The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work as the resident artist on…

Pootinism

Oh FFS, more politics? Still no science? Sorry, but yes. The Economist doesn’t like Putin, or rather what he’s doing to Russia, and who could disagree with them. Certainly not me. The Commies themselves do, as you’d hope. I think the Economist is basically right: Putin and Russia are weak and flailing and dangerous because…

Brexit means Brexit?

Post-referendum thoughts, and indeed Say no to Brexit refer. But so do Timmy’s NO, DON’T LET MPS HAVE A VOTE ON BREXIT (Timmy is very shouty, as you’d expect) and The Brexit Conundrum – Freedom Of Movement Means Only Hard, Or Clean, Brexit Is Possible (so perhaps it is the ASI that is shouty. Well,…
