Okay, the "Globally and Seasonally averaged" thread has grown to over 500 comments and thus reached its point of diminishing return in terms of the time it would take to read it and the utility of doing so. And while on the one hand I don't like to feed what is drifting towards to troll-like … Continue reading Global and Seasonal thread summary and continuation
Okay, "A Team" was a little to simple, and it was taken. Instead I would like to inform readers of the "CSRR" Team, or CSRRT. I will let the press release speak for itself: NAME: Climate Science Rapid Response Team (CSRRT) WEBSITE: http://www.climaterapidresponse.org WHO & WHAT: The CSSRT is a match-making service between top scientists … Continue reading Announcing the Climate Science Rapid Response Team
November 17 marked the one year anniversary of the hacking of CRU mail servers and the release of thousands of emails between climate scientists. Though irrelevant to the scientific case for anthropogenic climate change, the event was significant in the public relations sphere. I have not found the time to do a proper memorial write … Continue reading Climategate: one year later
A great and substantive post up at Skeptical Science on La Nina and what we should expect (and not expect) in terms of its impact on global temperatures. Read it all! (image borrowed from Skeptical Science) La Ninas typically redistribute the global heat budget in such a way as average surface temperatures are depressed from … Continue reading La NiÃÂ±a cannot erase decades of warming
[Update: I am closing this thread as it is now over 500 comments long. However, because the discussion is still ongoing it will continue on this post. There is also the possibility of Chris S coming back with his own analysis of Richard's data. This is a quick summary of what we can conclude thus … Continue reading Global and seasonally averaged means seasonally and globally averaged

Just to pick up an ongoing conversation where we left off over at the recently closed How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic thread, I wanted to provide a more serious answer to a likely unserious visitor because I think myhrr's issue deserves an answer, even if myhrr obviously doesn't. Kind of like the "we … Continue reading Is CO2 “well mixed”?
I haven't played Asteroids(tm) since the days when Atari was computer games King and 124K was an incredible amount of memory. And before any young gamers out there laugh at what an old geezer I must be, I will insist that that says much more about how fast computers have evolved than it does about … Continue reading Fun with asteroids
Greenman's latest: Entertaiing and informative, as usual! I did not know there was a "theological" debate about CO2 levels in the atmosphere, interesting.
Via a new blog started up this summer, Fool me Once (sounds like wishful thinking ;-), proprieter Alden has graciously permitted me to embed a most excellent video he has produced on arctic sea ice. He is covering a standard denialist talking point, that arctic sea ice has/is recovering, so the concepts will not be … Continue reading Great video on Arctic sea ice
