Another good video from Peter Sinclair on his YaleClimateForum YouTube channel: Maureen Raymo is an expert in paleo-climates.Â This is probably the most informative climate science specialty when it comes to anticipating the final outcome of our global experiment in climate disruption.Â The rapidity of the current change is outside the realm of anything previously … Continue reading Peter Sinclair interviewing Maureen Raymo
I am a longtime fan of ThingsBreak though his/her posts are a bit of a rarity these days.Â The latest post is a very good one on the recent debut of Nate Silver's 538 blog.Â I have read a few now and "Nate Silver fallsÂ off" is the one to choose if you only only choose … Continue reading 538 Broken Things
The good Lord Monckton, self parody at its absolute finest: This charming and lively man, with a soul and a wit that are eternal youth personified, is the latest victim of the vicious hate campaign sedulously waged by the canting profiteers of doom against anyone who dares to speak out against the now-discredited notion that … Continue reading The Thermageddon Cult strikes again

I have been remiss in not bringing this excellent resource to the attention of AFTIC readers earlier. From the invaluable Skeptical Science website comes a brilliant interactive history of climate science. Any comments on the choices for classification? I think it over counts skeptic and neutral papers.
"Coolest Billboard Ever?" asks a HuffPost article posted a couple of days ago. The billboard certainly seems "greenie". I mean come on, it is not just made out of renewable resources, it is one! It's alive. It breathes. It photosythesizes. Photosynthesis is the essence of "Green". So what's the problem? The problem is that this … Continue reading Coolest billboard ever? Not so much…
Non-lord Christopher Monkton is out and about again after laying low for a while, calling people nazis, using his Pink Portcullis coat of arms, etc. Greenman has a short video on that, though I must say I found more interesting the clips and content on James Delingpole. I must say he does not come out … Continue reading Monckton on the loose again
