IPCC chief wannabe van Ypersele’s communication record

As Australia’s Tony Thomas had noted last October, Jean-Pascal van Ypersele an IPCC vice-chair of the modelling persuasion, threw his hat in the ring to succeed the more recently disgraced Rajendra Pachauri. Donna Laframboise reported today that the U.K. Guardian, dedicated and dutiful propagator of all messages green, kindly gave van Ypersele a platform from…

Is Andrew Weaver letting lawyer lead him by the nose?

Two days ago, Canada’s National Post reported [h/t John Francis via Climate Audit] that it is launching an appeal against newbie Judge Emily Burke’s $50,000 award in the case of Weaver’s Wall of Hate about which I had written (inter alia): [120] Dr. Weaver set up a “Wall of Hate” outside his office. Copies of…

NEWSFLASH: Andrew Weaver & CBC drop his claim to Nobel fame

One of Andrew Weaver‘s prime cheerleaders over the years has been the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). With only one previous exception of which I am aware, they’ve never failed to mention – and/or visually feature – his unearned Nobel laurel, which was featured (albeit falsely and grandiosely) in the judgment. To the best of my…

IPCC-nik Andrew Weaver’s “Wall of hate” wins him $50,000

There’s a very recent “judgement” (if its meandering stream of non-sequiturs can reasonably be construed as such) issued by the BC Supreme Court’s new kid on the judging block, The Honourable Madam Justice [Emily] Burke who was plucked (for some unfathomable – albeit unstated – reason) from the part-time roster of those who contribute(d) to…

Canada’s CBC fails to do its homework … again

Notwithstanding its many claims that, as Canada’s “national broadcaster”, the CBC is an “authoritative” newscaster, in recent years this bureaucratic behemoth, funded at great taxpayer expense – which has rarely been known to fail to trumpet its self-proclaimed “authoritative” newscaster status – has once again demonstrated its true superficial colours. On this blog, for almost…

CBC disables my content!

Yet another in the sorry saga of my attempts to post a comment on a post I found on the website of Canada’s “National Broadcaster”. The rulers of which seem to be copy cats of those found at the notoriously censorious BBC.

UNEP sails on the unchartered waters of the UN

Not too long ago, during the rather fruitless search for something or other in the ever-growing maze of the United Nations, I had stumbled across the Dag Hammarskjöld Library where one can (at least according to today’s tagline) “Explore the World’s Organization”. During the course of retracing our path through this maze, today, my mouse…

NEWSFLASH: “Climate change is not stopping”, says WMO chief

Since 2004, Michel Jarraud has served as the Secretary-General (i.e. head honcho) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). This UN organization is one of two “parents” of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The other “parent”, as readers of this blog will no doubt recall, is the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), promulgator of…

Calling all Canadians: Check your climate’s context

Back in my halcyon days, i.e. long before “global warming” aka “climate change” – aka whatever the dedicated “we must de-carbonize now” activists and advocates are calling it this week – crossed my radar, it did not even occur to me to give a second thought to or to question the message(s) being relayed by…
