    Who’da thunkit.

  2. Latitude says:

    oh the shame….
    LOL

  3. Ric Werme says:

    It’s worse than we thought!

  4. A.D. Everard says:

    Brilliant Josh! LOL.

    Okay, who’s going to be the first to send a copy of this to Macquarie University? I wonder how many they’ll get in a day? This should not only be sent to them, this should go into poster size and be plastered up all over town. I love it.

  5. Annie says:

    Ha! Ha! Well done Josh.

  6. George Montgomery says:

    For more inspiration, Josh, check out Murray’s rating on Rate My Professor.

  7. Janice Moore says:

    JOSH! Am I glad to see you post!

    THIS CARTOON IS YOUR WITTIEST — EVER!

    Hope all is well in general; you are obviously doing very well in the creativity department.

    A loyal fan,

    Janice

    – And, please, next time you climb Mt. Everest, let us know so we (er, I mean I) don’t start to form a search party.

    Maybe Josh could do a cartoon of the wanted-to-be-hurricane.

    Anthony,

    Thought you might appreciate the link to the curricula National Geographic has created to teach “Climate Change” to students. http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/media/changing-climate/?ar_a=1

    You can really have fun with what is officially science these days. No wonder Salby is being rejected.

  10. UK Sceptic says:

    That should be put on a T shirt. Nice one, Josh!

  11. siliggy says:

    Can they prove that they stopped it from occuring?

  12. Josh says:

    Many thanks for the kind words. And John F. Hultquist, what a nice idea for a cartoon ;-)

    To moderator;
    Please note my new e-mail address

  14. siliggy says:

    On ya Josh! Tears of laughter.
    Mcmonoversity, the best money can buy. 97% agreement guaranteed.

    Will Trevor Keenan be next to go?
    Reported in The Australian paper today….’The efficiency dividend, shown by long-term data from forests around the world, was bigger than predicted by sophisticated computer models.
    “This could be considered a beneficial effect of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide,” said Macquarie University’s Trevor Keenan, lead author of a Nature paper today reporting the results. ” ‘

    Another winner, Josh. Thanks.

  17. Karl says:

    Robin: That is an eye-opening NatGeo course plan for kids. In the section on what to do about Climate Change, California is touted as the “cool” state when it comes to mitigation. How do all you Californians paying your energy bills feel about that?

  18. pesadia says:

    Maybe you should call your sketches lunytoons. In view of the subjects, this maybe a more appropriate description of your artwork.
    Wonderful stuff. More please.

  19. Chad Wozniak says:

    Yes, in some quarters “science” now means “propaganda” “idolatry”, “blindness”, “mendacity” and “venality”.

    And “liberal” today actually means “selfish,” “callous,” “”dishonest”, “control freaky”, “sociopathic”. ” “reactionary” and “fascistic”. Funny how words can be twisted to mean their opposite – or maybe not so funny, but rather sad and dangerous.

  20. Eric Worrall says:

    Hilarious :-) – and sadly so true. Science is only acceptable these days if your findings don’t embarrass your academic seniors. Deutsche Physik reborn.

  21. Lil Fella from OZ says:

    Top of the drop Josh!!! Spot on! Truth?!@?

  22. bushbunny says:

    I assume you are referring to Macquarie University near Sydney. Maybe they got a grant to prove climate change (AGW causation) and he was going against their mission. They are very political places universities. They have a scorpion’s sting if you go against their basic principals.

  23. atheok says:

    Well, there is a claim that the Manniacal one will never receive… ;->

    Excellent one Josh!

    Dr. Salby should get that one engraved onto a plaque for his wall. Best job recommendation ever.

  24. David Cooke says:

    Macquarie has always been one of our “toy” universities that sprang up in the late 20th century when almost every highschool kid expected to go on to uni. Now the Labor government is cutting back on university funding, these tertiary institutions are like overcrowded lifeboats. It’s survival of the toughest, or the best-connected.

    Wow, that’s embarrassing!

    REPLY: Hmm Phil,maybe we should check out your rating at Princeton.

    Plants are learning to live with extra carbon dioxide! ! !

    Aren’t plants clever? /sarc

  28. Hot under the collar says:

    In the future our children won’t know what a University is.

  29. Rob Painting says:

    On a personal level, it’s a bit sad really. Salby apparently did reasonable work on atmospheric science before descending into crank territory. It’s a clear sign that something is terribly wrong when a scientist doesn’t understand that mass (in the form of human-made CO2) doesn’t just spontaneously vanish from existence.
