  1. SHC—generally known as “Spontaneous Human Combustion” in this case means “Spontaneous Hockey Combustion”…
    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving icon–just add the light of day.

  2. Poor Gergis. I have a confession to make
    I have been feeling very sorry for her (despite her couple of snotties to Steve Mc)
    it must be horrible to have a paper pulled, and with the world watching. and laughing

  3. Must be horrible, but I don’t feel sorry for her. She was rude, arrogant and patronising.

    But surely it seems like almost perfect justice (a rare occurrence), no? Hubris falls again.

    Anthony,
    Good, but I think it is even funnier to say the inverse, “I went to a blog review and a violent hockey fight broke out.” Ehh? Come on . . . . . : )
    Happy Monday Mirthiness.

  6. There are some cartoonists I sure am glad are on my side of things. Josh, Chris Muir of Day By Day fame, and Michael Ramirez at the top of the list. Go Josh!

  7. Be careful Josh, all the CO2 being released in your drawing could cause Cartoon AGW!!! ;-))

  8. I don’t have any sympathy for Gergis. Let’s also not forget the ‘peers’ who allowed the paper to be published. Mind you they have all been publishing crap and getting away with it for ages now – they don’t know any better. Just this time theygot caught early enough.

    remember the meme?
    Why should “the Team” let anyone try to look at their work or data, when they are only trying to find something wrong? Since when have papers been submitted for others to review with an eye for errors?

  10. I suppose when all of the CAGW proponents get lawsuits as a result of their advocation of such trashy papers, we just might get to see who actually ticked the boxes as they “peer reviewed” it for publication. They are more guilty than the authors, but then it seems clear that it was just prepared for regurgitation by certain influential people preparing IPCC reports.
    Was Gergis a convenient activist picked to be lead author, hmmmn expendable collateral damage ? Perhaps Donna will investigate for her next book. Inside the inside story of the IPCC!

  11. Co-authors are singed by the same stick. Did they ever think of checking their own and each others’ work once they got “the right answer”? FIVE authors. J. Gergis, R. Neukom, S.J. Phipps, A.J.E. Gallant, D.J. Karoly.
    Top marks to Josh for the portrait. You could spot her out of a line-up based on that image.

  12. Out of the picture, stage left, Steve McIntyre is walking away, a disappointed Diogenes carrying a blowtorch instead of a lantern. 🙂

  13. This is what happens when you use a hockey stick to stir the data you are, er, “cooking”.

    From the supercilious tone of her e-reply, I doubt she’s even noticed…

  15. Josh: love it! The more of your work that I see, the more I see in it. The pictures are disarmingly simple but they’re dead-on without being mean. That light wit is not lightweight; it lets us all retain or regain our common humanity, and it contrasts wonderfully with the typical Grim & Determined tenor of the CAGWers.
