WUWT gets a Cartoon by Josh

If you haven’t visited Cartoonsbyjosh.com yet. You really should. He’s got a wonderful collection of cartoons that focus on the climate debate taking place online.

Here’s one he did of Lucia’s Blackboard. Lucia looks a bit like Copernicus in this rendition.

Josh has honored WUWT and yours truly with a cartoon also. See below.

Gotta keep those Stevenson Screens warm.

  1. I see you have the full Walrus. Must make it easier to be around the polar bears when you’re checking on the Arctic ice. ;-)

  2. Such a noble visage — Zeus-like in appearance.

    If only the alarmists could develop a healthy sense of humor. Psst, guys — you can be serious and still have fun. And all without the aid of a lawyer!

  3. LOL…. Anthony / Moses,

    The Russians agree.

    “Scientists who believe the climate is warming may have
    been misled by data from U.S. meteorological stations
    located in urban areas, where dense microclimates creates
    higher temperatures, RIA Novosti quoted Pokrovsky as
    saying.”

  4. Anthony, you are looking like Haraald Hadragaa (or Harald Hardråde) on this.
    Fortunately, WUWT won their battle at Stamford Bridge.

  5. “Leon Brozyna (11:51:09) :

    They can’t. When your job is predicting the apocalypse you must play it straight or you lose the audience.

  6. Reverend. [bows] :-)

    What are those clouds supposed to mean? Are those the result of cosmic rays ionically seeding clouds at lower altitude during solar minimum?!

  7. I like the blanket around the Stevenson screen keeping it nice and warm. Now if he’d just put HVAC unit or jet exhaust close to it…

  8. Sitting in a UHI waitin’ for cycle 24,
    If the spots dont show, come and get your skates
    and we’ll maunder on the Thames some more

    I am the snowman, they are the snowmen, Watts is the Walrus!

    Coo-coo-ca-joob!

    ;-)

  9. Matt- the gap in DMI is from days when it wasnt possible to take observations for whatever reason.

    (with apologies to those on the LHS of the pond)
    Stamford Bridge? Hardly worth mentioning. For men of steel, venture a couple of miles north west to White Hart Lane.

  11. I LIKE it! There is definitely something Asterix-ish about the portrait!

    Anthony, you KNOW that you are winning when you, your friends, collegues and blog-readers can have a belly-laugh upon seeing this cartoon!

    No-one in the AGW camp seems to be able to do this, Mann especially with his “Hide-the-Decline” carryings-on!

  12. WOW!

    I followed the link to Josh’ page.

    Once there, I followed the link to here…

    I couldn’t believe it when he cited Bjørn Lomborg as sceptical.

    Really couldn’t listen any further, perhaps someone with a higher tolerance then I can.

  13. I have to say, Lucia looks rather hot. And the way she’s spinning the planet Earth on her index finger, well, I have to say, I’m enchanted.

    She might melt your Popsicle (sha-wing!) but the arctic chill has necessitated another rescue: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/opinion/another-polar-rescue-must-send/story-e6frfhqf-1225856131380

    TOM Smitheringale wanted to prove the world was warming. Now he’s another alarmist with frostbite.

    The 40-year-old from Perth planned to be the first Australian to trek unassisted to the North Pole, but announced he’d raise some consciousness along the way.

    As he wrote on his website: “Part of the reason Tom’s One Man Epic is taking place now is because of the effect that global warming is having on the polar ice caps.”

    Indeed, he wanted to see the North Pole while it was still there: “Some scientists have even estimated that the polar ice cap will have entirely melted away by 2014!”

    But Antarctica isn’t melting away, and Arctic ice has slowly increased since its big low in 1997.

    But no one seems to have told Tom, who soon found his extremities freezing.

    Two weeks ago he nearly called off his trek after suffering excruciating pain in his fingers and thumbs, forcing him to call in emergency help.

    And last week he had to be rescued by Canadian soldiers after falling through the ice sheet.

    “(I) came very close to the grave,” he said, on being flown out.

    This is actually now the fourth year running that warming alarmists have had to be rescued from expeditions to prove the Arctic is warmer than it actually is. It’s a metaphor.

  15. Awesome likeness…I’m wondering if that Stevenson screen has been painted with Latex or whitewashed? :-)

  16. OT: I found the following information on the Internet.

    ———

    On April 29th 2010, dr. Rajendra Pachauri will receive an honorary degree from the University of Antwerp.

    To mark this occassion, the University of Antwerp organises an OPEN MASTER CLASS (in English): a unique opportunity to discuss climate change with dr. Pachauri, chair of the IPCC and renowned expert.

    Thu. 29 april 2010 at 14h at the University of Antwerp City Campus, Aula Rector Dhanis, Kleine Kauwenberg, 2000 Antwerpen.
    Please e-mail your questions for dr. Pachauri to milieu@ua.ac.be (April 26 at the latest).

    Participation is free.
    Registration is not required.

    ——————

    So, Pachauri is the “renowned” climate expert, he??

  17. Has Josh done Gavin, Mann, Romm et al yet? Tamino?

    I’ve just made my monthly contribution to the tip jar. Keep up the good work.

    “Lang may yer lum reek!” – as we say in Bonnie Scotland.

  18. I like it!
    and Australia is looking forward to your visit Anthony.
    bring the robes…It may impress the extremely Pro Warm biased ABC..
    on the other hand, it may not:-)
    but it would still catch attention.

  19. Why has Lucia got “GOTO HEARTLAND” scrawled on her blackboard/desk?

    REPLY: Because she is in fact, going. -A

  20. Wonderful! He’s got me hooked.
    But Doc, it’s a bit Moses-isk. Hmmm, maybe he’s thinking you should do a “Ten Commandments of Climate”?

    Just for S&Gs how about these to get you going:
    I – Thou shalt not use tree rings as an indicator of anything.
    II – Thou shalt not covet thy airports temperature data.

    BTW, did you ever find that coal/nuke? ad you were looking for in PS?

    The stone flat-screen monitor adds to the impression.

  22. were you in Bachman Turner Overdrive when you were younger? By Amino Acids in Meteorites

    You know, I saw BTO play at Dogpatch USA theme park around early 1990’s and… by golly Anthony does look like one of those old rockers.

    Also, Scorpions just began their farewell tour and last album. Now that’s a band that could rock-n-roll with BTO or anybody and Klaus Meine could sing, maybe better than Elvis. I’m going to try to catch ‘em before they retire too!

    Not really, you can sing “So long and thanks for all the fish…”
