I always marvel at the scientist-government conspiracy theories the more wacky members of the climate denial machine toss around so confidently. How do they fit this into their world view? In papers sent to UVA April 23, Cuccinelli's office commands the university to produce a sweeping swath of documents relating to Mann's receipt of nearly … Continue reading Mann persecuted by The Man, again

(OT) Totally awesome!
From APOD: (click on image for full resolution, totally awesome!) Here is an equally stuning video of that prominence erupting: Ironic that according to the IPCC that massive ball of fire has nothing to do with the climate which is entirely controled by CO2, isn't it? (As humour is hard to detect on the internets … Continue reading (OT) Totally awesome!
Jesus appears in Hungary
At least his image does, in a field of wheat! (go to actual Google Map) And PZ Meyers still doesn't believe in him!
Extreme ice loss time-lapse video

I was considering going through it and highlighting its many falsehoods and logical holes but Arthur Smith has done a fine job of it already. The WSJ op-ed … Continue reading More conspiracy theories from Lindzen
Climate Scientist Sues National Post

While I think the basic aspect of holdinng a newspaper accountable for outright lies or reporting so irresponsible it is virtually indistinguishable from … Continue reading Climate Scientist Sues National Post
Ash and Lightning Above an Icelandic Volcano
Don't miss April 19th's APOD, a truly awsome sight! And while on the subject of Eyjafjallajokull and my recent post about it, readers should be aware of a correction on the source site. The best estimate of CO2 is in fact 150,000 tons per day, not 7400, with a possible maximum of 300,000 tons per … Continue reading Ash and Lightning Above an Icelandic Volcano
