Tol goes emeritus

Richard Tol and the 97% consensus – again! Need I say more? OTOH, he isn’t a bozo. Refs * Richard Tol is being oppressed! * Big City Lib on the GWPF (P3) and BCL himself * The necessity of TOBS – Moyhu * Flurry Of Scientists, Recent Peer-Reviewed Papers, Warning Of Approaching Little Ice Age…

Australians for coal

It’s good to see australiansforcoal.com.au (h/t: MH) because it means they’re worried. If it didn’t exist, it would mean they didn’t feel under threat, much in the same way that the dork side fear wiki. Its also nice that they carefully avoid mentioning climate, or global warming, because again it means they’re afraid: they have…

Ukraine: cartoon

I don’t have anything particularly sensible to say about the Ukraine for the moment, but I like this cartoon (I had thought I was intending to print my wise words every three weeks or so, but I see my previous posts were months apart and ago. Time flies). The Russian bear under the tablecloth is…

The denialists don’t like wiki, because it reflects the current understanding of global warming. And so they need to construct elaborate fantasies about why it doesn’t say what they want it to say. Of course, just like everyone else, whether they whinge about it or not, they use it, because its useful and accurate. So…

septic.org?

Over at WUWT, AW wondered Is it time for an “official” climate skeptics organization, one that produces a policy statement, issues press releases, and provides educational guidance? To me, that looked like a fairly crude attempt to monetise WUWT and provide some kind of career path for himself. But, it would be a big step,…

My previous post Policy? trailed off in the comments in a variety of odd directions, as long comment threads are wont to. So I’ll offer you this quote: For there are some people on the left who keep insisting that economic growth is incompatible with reduced emissions, and that therefore we have to turn our…

Policy?

ATTP has a post discussing Mapping the sceptical blogosphere (which I’m sure I read (the paper, I mean) and had the same reaction: “whaat? You mean they’re taking these jokers seriously?” But I don’t seem to have written it down anywhere). Anyway, ATTP then asks, of the septics: So, why do these sites focus on…

Foundation and Empire

The second Ukraine post, a follow-up to the brilliantly prescient Ukraine: Work as if you live in the early days of a better nation wherein I said: Miriam says Yes: she thinks “Russian armed forces, on Ukrainian soil, within two weeks” (she declined to say “tanks over the border”, though I think that’s the only…

I don’t appear to have mocked the NIPCC recently, preferring to consign them to oblivion, but JoNova is somewhat implausibly singing their virtues, so I’ve noticed. If you read the report you’ll see that its prefixed by recommendations from the Great and the Good; and they’ve been fortunate enough to squeeze in praise from that…

Or so says Auntie, reporting well-known climatologist John Kerry. In fact, I have a guilty secret that I will share with you: I faked this screenshot. But only a bit. Here’s the original. My monkey, whilst faked in, is every bit as valid as their monkey. Its from the Rare Animals feed on facebook, which…
