Ardnassac

This is a book recommendation. Sadly, it's out of print, and I can find none in any of the used book sites I have used. The good news is it's cheap on Kindle. I found out about it here if you want a short opinion second to the one that follows. I can’t believe I’d… Continue reading Ardnassac

We have always been at war with Thunbergia

For the people who read Orwell as an instruction manual it is not merely a question of whether 2+2=5, or whether “freedom is slavery,” or "silence is violence," or memory holing contrarian commentary about BLM, or Trans activism, or Feminism, or the CCP virus - climate alarmism must also be made safe from debate. On… Continue reading We have always been at war with Thunbergia

GIGO

A Climate Modeller Spills the Beans "Proper ocean modelling would require a tenfold improvement in spatial resolution and a vast increase in computing power, probably requiring quantum computers. If or when quantum computers can reproduce the small-scale interactions, the researchers will remain out of their depth because of their traditional simplifying of conditions."This is far… Continue reading GIGO

Properly skeptical?

In a post describing social media propaganda techniques Corey Doctorow says the following:"We’re not living through a crisis about what is true, we’re living through a crisis about how we know whether something is true. We’re not disagreeing about facts, we’re disagreeing about epistemology. The “establishment” version of epistemology is, “We use evidence to arrive… Continue reading Properly skeptical?

Using the words of scientists who strongly believe… Continue reading What a piece of work is Mann

-Never comment your code. It was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.-At least we know why the NYT didn't publish any of the emails.-And I want one of these.From the comments:This illegal act of cyber-terrorism against a climate scientist (and I don’t think that’s too strong a word) is ominous and frightening.… Continue reading East Anglia AGW, the heat goes on

Who’s a "denier" now?

Even the New York Times finds the leak of emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit impossible to ignore. I do not think this rises fully to being "coverage," however, and I note some of the reasons below.I have included the full text of the Times article below because it usually disappears… Continue reading Who’s a "denier" now?

James Robert Cardinal Bellarmine Hansen

This is what passes for scientific debate among the Global Warmist elite:[NASA's director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies] James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them… Continue reading James Robert Cardinal Bellarmine Hansen

Conspiracy of silence

The Union of Concerned Scientists has claimed that there is a conspiracy by the Bush administration to intimidate and censor climatology scientists in the United States on the topic of Global Warming.It's a conspiracy, all right, just not the one the real conspirators Union of Concerned Scientists claim it is. Read the whole thing at… Continue reading Conspiracy of silence
