Says The Onion. And its right, even if the original is damaged (I’ve not done it, of course)). But that’s not quite what I wanted to write about… I wanted to talk about The war against Exxon Mobil (WaPo) and the contrast between reactions to that and In re Smith v Karl (and several reprints).…

Deepak Chopra vs Wikipedia

Slightly not-the-usual fare, but H mentioned it and its wiki, and following – or failing to follow – the trail was moderately amusing, so here we go. Deepak Chopra is an Indian American author and public speaker.[4][5] He is an alternative medicine advocate and a promoter of popular forms of spirituality, but more importantly is…

[RealClimate has a post with more useful detail.] I last commented about Antarctica and SLR when I “reviewed” the AR5 cryosphere chapter. As I noted there, things have come on quite a way since I were a lad (2005, 2004) and the major advance looks to be GRACE, even if they sometimes recalibrate their isostatic…

No-one cares about Theon

Ages ago, John Theon had his five minutes of fame in the usual tedious manner; as blogged by me and others with too much time on their hands. Since then his wiki-life looks like: 2015-11-01T03:17:34 Acroterion (talk | contribs) deleted page John Theon (G4: Recreation of a page that was deleted per a deletion discussion,…

Exxon speaks

Everyone is being terribly cwuel to Exxon, and they feel the need to respond. You can probably chalk that up as a success, though a minor one. On the ultimate substance I don’t feel any need to revise my previous posts: that Exxon’s climate science research was far less interesting than the stories are trying…

As it says in the good book: Junkies down in Brooklyn are going crazy They’re laughing just like hungry dogs in the street Policemen are hiding behind the skirts of little girls Their eyes have turned the color of frozen meat No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no Joan Crawford…

This year’s sea ice was unexciting. NOAA goes for “2015 Arctic sea ice fourth lowest on record” which is doubtless true. Tamino has some helpful plots, so I’ve nicked one. I’m pleased that my 2014 comment “Hopefully that too [i.e., 2012] will look like an outlier in years to come” now looks quite true. From…

Hansen et al.: RIP

[Update: Or, maybe not.] Via twitter comes news of the sad demise of “Ice melt, sea level rise and superstorms: evidence from paleoclimate data, climate modeling, and modern observations that 2 °C global warming is highly dangerous”; Review status: This discussion paper has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). A…

Frances, top weatherman

It (it? Philippe Verdier, possibly-ex-weatherman) is all a bit silly, but here’s a snapshot from the Torygraph if you like. Its the same old stuff: We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear… I received a letter telling me not to…

A more than unusually obscure headline perhaps. Here’s the link. I noticed, because my watchlist contained a pile of changes like: (diff | hist) . . mb Nir Shaviv‎; 23:31:54 . .
