Is it possible to make a link so we with different time zones can download for future reference? We can all do it individually, but it might be easier overall to do it once centrally. Also, some countries (UK in particular, BBC), come up with a message “Not available in your country”.
Christopher Monkton is due to talk in West Australia tonight. A group of 50 academics wrote to the host University demanding that he be disallowed. The West Australian newspaper has a most unflattering pic of LM, whom as we know has Grave’s disease, causing eye bulge, which is not mentioned. The party is getting deperate.

Corr: Monckton. Typo.

I’m glad to see they have finally realised the benefit of “carbon neutral” business practices like video conferencing!!!
But seriously, it’s OK for these greens to go swanning off to far flung places because they are awash with government money and seem to be able to do all the air miles they please, but us poor sceptics can’t afford that kind of luxury!

Thanks Anthony. I wrote about the 6th ICCC here,, including the previous 2nd to 5th ICCC. I skipped writing about the 1st ICCC.

Good. I’ll be watching. (Must confess that I tried to watch after the previous announcement here; when nothing happened for 15 minutes, I finally realized that June 30 != June 27.)

Senator Inhofe is an no-show. 🙁

Awwww, no Inhofe. But Michaels is a more engaging speaker, and he’s giving a new presentation.


Something for them to discuss.
On tonights ABC, Aussie version, weather report it was mentioned in passing that the past month has been the coldest on record. In Darwin !!! Amazing. Less than 20c every night. Thank goodness for that poofteenth of a degree of AGW or the poor buggers would freeze…

Well done Pat Michaels. I think that he could have hammered home with more emphasis some of the more pertinant points, but spot-on really.


Anthony just finished his presentation. Ball is speaking now. 9:05 Central Daylight Time.
OK. S.


Watching Tim Ball at the moment: my head is about to explode with incredulity at the consecutive string of statements stating that the AGW / IPCC position is a premeditated, conscious, deliberate global orchestration to mislead the worlds people. Talk about conspiracy theorist. Sorry, does not fit the facts. Epic fail. Watts as prior speaker was more credible.

Well done Anthony. I think that you got your point across as well as you could have. Good on you once again.


The sound is not working at all and Turks speach is not possible to hear because of the tecnicakl interuptions. Can someone meka shure that they beware of this at the conference?

Wayne Delbeke

Will there be recordings/videos for those of us in different time zones and schedules?

Yes, the live presentation is not good, however I am sure that we will get an online version as soon as possible. It is true that the live feed is a disaster.


The Team has their detractors busy.
Some of you may have heard about the “ICCC-6″ conference, sponsored by the so-called “Heartland Institute,” that will take place this Thursday and part of Friday in Washington D.C. It’s the best-known meeting of those who call themselves “skeptics” about global warming.
I suspect they’re not really skeptics at all. Why do I think that, you wonder?

This comment is comical.

We need to prosecutions. Major prosecutions. There should be real world ramifications for trying to destroy civilization.



Live feed keeps re-caching repeatedly for me. It only worked solidly for maybe 3-5 minutes at a time. Now it is just a constant re-cache, I get no real video. This could be work servers restricting me, but I doubt it. I think more likely the problem is somewhere else. Though no one in the chat reported my issue.


I think both Drs Denning and Mendelsohn would do better to keep their what-ifs free of cheap scare mongering tactics, or rather not going completely bonkers on the what-if scenarios. Their reasoning in general would become more interesting I think.
Not one of the give any indication of having proof of CO2 being a driving force or not or just a mere symptom of something else. There’s no water vapor data for the CO2 time series to reference neither, apparently. Nobody even knows what “gaia” will do with the abundance of CO2 at the double the CO2 levels, (so why use it in a scare tactic?), so nobody knows if CO2 levels vs green growth will balance itself out or not. And Dr Denning seem to believe that CO2 is left in atmosphere for a hundred years, which has been debunked which means it’s sourly disputed, but he provided no proof of it, and apparently he seem to think that CO2 doesn’t dissipate to the universe like water molecules, oxygen, nitrogen, etc does, and that . . .
But like I said, if they kept the scare BS out of their reasoning and what-if, they’d be easier to understand and less the troll department. :p


PLease note ALL anti-AGW spearkers are being heard with double echo. Hearltland your sound sytems has been hijacked by the greenies.


I missed Tim Ball . It is not on his site yet. Can anyone help me.

Really unfortunate that there is; 1- No sound. 2;- Poor/No video. 3:- Little being done about 1 and 2. Anybody else unable to login to post comments at the livestream site? If I mouse over the input fields they vanish! Hackery? I was really looking forward to this… My last hope is that it will all be uploaded to youtube so we can view it all later.

Unfortunately missed Andrew’s talk so hope to catch that soon. Bee trying to watch the rest of it but it really is a most diabolical streaming effort on livestream. My assumption is that they are relying on the bandwidth of the hotel and it simply is not enough.

Ther can be no doubt” The greenies have succeded in hijacnot preparedking the online version of this conference the organizers were not prepared!

Great conference so far. Interesting speakers. One could tell immediately that Anthony worked within the media industry at some point. Shame about the feed, but I’m sure they’ll have it working OK soon

It is getting worse. Long gaps without sound now.

The conference may be a success,
but the live streaming is not.

Really appreciate the feed! Thanks to whoever organised it.
It was however a bite surreal … I was drawing up a map of a local nature reserve on one side of the screen, whilst watching a conference … somewhere ??? I could throw a stone and hit the nature reserve, I’d have to fire a rocket with advanced navigation to hit the conference.
And on the news was something interesting … they had to shut down two nuclear power stations in Scotland due to Jellyfish. Now it is well known that jellyfish are increasing due to overfishing which in turn is reducing the fish that feed on baby jellyfish. And of course we were just lucky it wasn’t winter (although it is cold enough … the fire is on!) … but if it had been winter and we’d had that much power generation offline, with all the stupid wind, we’d surely have had power cuts.
But, what’s the betting this is reported as “yet another facet of global warming?”


AW I dont know if you noticed but Prof Singer made a very profound statement concerning the GISS, NOAA etc global temps from 1970 on……The implications are very important.
REPLY: Unfortunately, I missed Dr. Singer’s presentation, I was called away for a media interview. Please fill me in. – Anthony

Unfortunately most of us missed most of Dr Singer’s presentation however I suspect that Stephan is referring to good old Fred coming straight out and accusing the team et al of making the late temperature record up.

It's always Marcia, Marcia

Do you have a link o the Darwin cold story?

Couldn’t get the live streaming to work, tried four times on two different browsers during the day. Hopefully the key presentations will be available on youtube soon.

Given what’s happened to him through his career, I think he’s rather justified to be a little paranoid. He was one of the people I most wanted to thank for his years of work for the skeptical side while I was waiting for SC23 to end and the PDO to flip before getting involved.
I asked him how the lawsuits against him are going, and he said things are in pretty good shape. The one from Mann is impeded because Mann doesn’t want to turn over all the discovery they’ve requested, the one from Weaver is the more important one, but I forget why.
FredB, do you think it was coincidental that both lawsuits were filed at the same time and that the contents of the cases are so lame?
See for more background.

Singer, in a gruff very old school fashion which I found enduring since it reminded me of many a grand old professors during school demonstrating simple skepticism, said he didn’t trust the declared rises in T shown in the global average plots since they were not supported by other evidence such as satellites, balloons and diverging proxy data, plus a few other items I don’t recall. It was a very strong statement indeed, mainly in tone.
However, I looked up radiosonde (balloon) data and it seems to match the global average pretty well lately:


It was more interesting today a bit less cheap scare mongering tactic.
But yesterday CO2 was said to stay in the atmosphere for hundreds of years, today it was thousands of years even if we stopped emitting CO2. Even though Dr Denning acknowledges that plant uses truck loads of CO2 every second?
There was this other thing as well, really weird reasoning, about the depth of the oceans taking a thousand years to come to the surface. So, essentially, that meant that they didn’t take measurements at hot spring and volcanoes and the likes, actually they don’t seem to have covered even one percentage of the oceans really, and he didn’t account for the fact that warm water has a “funny” tendency to stay on top too boot instead that warm water behaves like so seemed to him to be unnatural.
A bit lee way one need to afford everyone under time constraint so I guess he could explain better given time, but then again who wouldn’t?
The thing I can’t, for any reason, understand, under any circumstance, is why did he have to go all dictatorial?
Fine, he sees there might be a problem, because that’s what he feels, and he can’t envision any under outcome, that’s just peachy. But where does he think he has the right to demand that everyone else is supposed to solve his god damn envisioned might be problems?
If you think there’s a problem, then solve the problem yourself. If you need help to solve the problem, you kindly ask for it and also supplying proof that there’s an actual problem to begin with and not just a misunderstanding on your part. And usually people will want some valid proof if not to just judge how much time, money, and resources they need to spend to solve a problem.
Otherwise it was real great. :p

Actually, Dr. Demming is probably going to find himself lambasted from a number of quarters. In both the debate with Roy Spencer and in his later talk (both pretty much the same) much of his argument rested on the existence of the MWP and LIA, which Mann et al still pretty much suggest did not exist. He implies that solar irradiance, ir rather changes in it (if I understood him properly) caused the glaciations and the MWP and LIA…. I don’t think Dr. Svalgaard would be very forgiving on that point, and he seems to discount the possibility of negative feedbacks. At the same time, he does seem very sincere, even vehement, about wanting “conservatives” to propose market based solutions because he is convinced that solutions will come but wwe are abandoning the field to Greenpeace and the WWF, a prospect which really does seem to appall him…. so the environmental left is not going to be happy with him, either.
I did attend the conference…. just got back in the door, and was very pleased and impressed with the people I got to meet and speak with. Dr. Michaels was an excellent presenter and very generous with his time and materials after the conference. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Alan Carlin – his presentation was difficult, but I had the very great pleasure of speaking with him for a bit and there is a very keen mind there and an awesome, humbling courage. The attendees were equally impressive: I met a farmer from Texas, an MD plus Ph.D. who was very interested in the effects of diurnal temperature change on humans – and there was one outspoken Dr. Gray, a doyen and father figure for all the meterologists, who took Dr. Singer to task for saying anything nice about models. Oh… and Anthony did start off by asking if Tim wirth was in the room and repeated his offer to yield his fifteen minutes. The man, of course, was not there.
