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.

Better move that screen near an airport.

I thought maybe you were the concern [snip] worried about UHI, but this is better, congrats.

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. 😉

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!

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.”

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

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

Not likely… It means the clouds are breaking up a bit following the 5 larger eruptions we had in 2008 & 2009. See for yur sef!

Stamford Bridge? Hardly worth mentioning. For men of steel, venture a couple of miles north west to White Hart Lane.

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!

Judd (19:09:41)–
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.

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??

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?

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!
