Help Climate Audit in Canada

Steve McIntyre is too modest to ask for any help on this, so I’ll do it for him.

While some of his countrymen have told me they would like to give him the Order of Canada, and that may well happen someday, this is a much simpler request.

There’s an award contest for Canadian bloggers only, called the Canadian Blog Awards 2010, and Climate Audit is one of the contenders for Best Science and Technology Blog 2010

All you have to do is visit either of the two links above and vote. – Anthony

 

Update – it appears we may have posted this towards the end of the poll window, it now says “closed”. OTOH, the main page says “round 1” so perhaps there will be another opportunity. – Anthony

Not just Canada. With due deference to our noble host at WUWT, Steve is the blogger that awakened me to what was happening in climate science. While meticulous in his own work, he is fair and even handed to most climate scientists, but calls BS when and where he sees it.

Voted for Steve, but hey Canadian friends, no nomination for The Daily Bayonet? What’s UWT? How can you live in the climate headspace without the Bayonet’s ‘Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up’?
(Now, should he be nominated under Science & Technology, Humour or Political Blog…? )

Anthony thanks for the h/t on the contest.
I checked the box for CA on this bright sunny fall morning with the colorful leaves dropping from the maples & oaks. : )

I noted after my vote there was this message: “Results for this poll have been set to private.”
Did others get that message?
In other polls I normally see the ongoing totals after voting. Why not this one?

I am not sure, if it is appropriate for me, as an American, to vote in a Canadian poll. On the one hand, CA is the best Canadian science blog I am aware of, so technically I’d be saying, yeah, this is a great, Canadian blog. On the other hand, this being a Canadian poll, I have to wonder if it isn’t supposed to be for Canadians.
I will have to consider this dilemma.

Yes, McIntrye for the Order of Canada and thanks, Anthony, for your generosity to a most deserving colleague. I would like to see Steve McIntrye nominated for a Nobel if it weren’t such a politically damaged award. His unique ability to investigate the innards of AGW — to know where to look, how to ask for the necessary (and cooked) data, and to inquire precisely into the mathematics and computer-modeling — continues to be a gift to freedom-and science-loving people everywhere. I have voted with great pleasure.
Also thanks to Bruce (3:25 a.m.) for the link to The Daily Bayonet (both blog and blogger apparently) and a belated thanks to the commenter who alerted me(us) to the fact that Dr. Jennifer Marohasy is blogging again. I have missed her clarity, good sense, and ability to set all those crooked Australian records straight.

October 17, 2010 7:35 am

Done.

October 17, 2010 7:38 am

However, I find it a bit disconcerting that the vote results cannot be viewed as the votes are made.

I have already voted!. Good for him!. Though we all know he would deserver the Order of Canada, the international “ideologists” won´t ever give him that prize, simply because they are obssesed to their bones, with weird issues like: Reducing the population of the world by promoting “non reproductive behaviors”, like same sex marriage; by encouraging women to make their “free choice” of killing their own offsprings, by teaching small children of the wise an most convenient same sex relations; they are totally commited to the well being of whales, dolphins, and polar bears on a supposed melting artic; they are absolutely enganged in removing the last remnants of freedom in men, all over the world; they have been profoundly inffused with the alienated conviction that everything good man has made on this generous earth should be eliminated: From the Mother giving birth to the last working man working to buil a better future to his beloved sons and daughters.
The recent events in Chile, where 33 interred and believed dead miners were brought again to live, showed us, distinticvely the opposition between EROS and TANATOS, between the forces which have chosen entropy and death and those forces which have chosen negentropy, life, and the continuation of the existence of our universe itself. There there was a leader commited with LIFE, who against all odds he betted they were alive and he succeeded.
In a clear opposition between opposites, though perhaps not the most critical of these fanatic endeavors, global warming/climate change/climate disruption has been a battle field between the forces of tanatos, death, and those of life, of eros, a battle in which Steve McIntyre has played a central role, bravely followed by Anthony Watts, here, at WUWT Blog. So we are the fortunate witnesses of the Last Crusade and its most distinguished Crusaders.

Our children will end up owing him a debt a gratitude as he and Ross were 2 of the most significant catalysts which began and continue to turn the tide away from the
the scourge of tyranny emanating from faux environmentalist, i.e. rent seekers, carpet baggers, opportunity thieves/watermelons, is mitigated to the point of irrelevance.
However, still have a long way to go before we can say “mission accomplished”, (if ever – probably a constant battle until the present education system is reformed)
A tip of the hat to Anthony, Steve and their ilk for the yeoman like work they do.

October 17, 2010 8:49 am

Actually, it appears that CA is too important to ignore as a candidate. I note however, that two of my favs, “Small Dead Animals” (linked to WUWT) and “The Daily Bayonet” are nowhere to be seen. Possibly because they are a little too conservative for the creators of this Blog awards website? On the other hand I can chose from about a dozen candidate websites dealing with, ahem, alternate lifestyle living. The liberal-left thought police are still strong in the true north.

Tim Williams
October 17, 2010 9:47 am

He (McIntyre) certainly has a decent shout. Who can argue that creating doubt over global warming by engaging in a personal vendetta against a few plaleoclimatologists hasn’t given a very important window of opportunity for Canada to exploit it’s enormous reserves of fossil fuel, whilst simultaneously opening up the very real possibility of new northerly agricutlural regions and the exposure of further (currently) ice bound resources.
The only possible fly in the ointment to his anointment is if Prince Charles has any say in the matter.

FYI, over the past year I have e-mailed the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. “mansbridge one-on-one” on three separate occasions, to suggest that Peter Mansbridge interview Steve. Never had a reply from the CBC…. maybe others can give it a try.
Mansbridge was quick to interview that L.A. domiciled Canadian last month, when he came to Alberta with great fanfare to “inspect” the tar sands operation – yet he can’t reach our Steve who lives just round the corner in Toronto.

His acceptance speech should read as follows,
” I’d like to thank Michael Mann and the CRU team, as well as Jim Hansen and his team, for without them, this never would of been possible. Thanks for making it so easy to debunk your junk science.”
I know the great Mcintyre is way too modest for something like that, but it’s a nice thought. 😉

As opposed to your amoral masters who have put science back to the Stone Ages with their corruption, junk science, and stiffling any debate?
Did you ask them how to post that statement, as you can’t think for yourself?

If the Canadian Blog Awards are being run the same way as in previous years, it’s best to ignore them. No awards system that refuses to display the votes cast should be trusted.

I’m sorry to report, pyro, that the OOC is also politically damaged, since the awarding of the medal to Morgentaler. A number of prior OOC recipients have turned in their medals after that happened. Sad, but most “public service honours” of recent years have been co-opted for political agendas as propaganda tools.
I must say that I do like DavidM’s suggestion:
