IPCC WG III on CO2 “equivalents” … and confusion

So, while Stephan <even when I’m wrong, I’m right> Lewandowsky continues to defend his indefensible Recursive Fury against Frontiers’ retraction – aided and abetted by his dutiful little gophers (aka Dana Nuccitelli and John Cook) – thereby planting himself (and his over-inflated ego) firmly in the ranks of those whose signature anthem should be “Mediocrity…

CBC finally drops IPCC-nik Andrew Weaver’s fake Nobel laurel

[Please note UPDATE below -hro] Canada’s National (taxpayer funded) Broadcaster, the CBC has rarely – if ever – missed an opportunity to unquestioningly promote the alarmist “cause” along with its made in Canada green activists and advocates. Andrew Weaver is one of the CBC’s favourite idols. Weaver – who has never demonstrated any understanding of…

Coming soon … Busy bees in the hive: IPCC’s AR5 (the movie)

In a somewhat remarkable departure from the longstanding IPCC tradition of delaying by several months the release of the “reports” underlying its Summaries for Policymakers (and the very carefully prepared Press Releases on the line-by-line Approval of the latter), it seems that when the IPCC gathers for the “very intensive” process of “approving” the Summary…

Musical interlude … Global warming in Russia?

In the last year or so, the alarmists (and their army of MSM message massagers) have made much ado of “extreme” weather events – particularly those on the warm side, such as heat waves in Russia, no matter how tenuous the link. YMMV – as the saying goes – but I’m inclined to think that…

What on “Earth” is going on at the U.K. Met Office?

As each declaration made its way into public consciousness, someone or other from a “jewel in…

COP 18 struggles to ride waves from Sandy and Bopha

Notwithstanding all the duly recycled little-bit-louder-and-a-whole-lot-worse chapters and verses from the long established “climate bible” on the part of enviro-activists from the UN’s Secretary-General to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s chair, Rajendra Pachauri – along with his stable of “objective, transparent, inclusive talent” – it seems that desperate delegates in Doha are down…

Of consensus and the weakness of plastic pillars

There’s been an interesting confluence (but I’m sure it must be coincidental) of blogposts in the last twenty-four hours or so. Much of the “consensus” alarmism to which we’ve been subjected by the mainstream media (MSM) for so many years can be traced back to the European Union’s (and in particular Germany’s) deep-green-tinted “science”. But…
