Poetic license – UEA's Creative Climate Writing Prize

People send me stuff. Here’s one about UEA offering a prize contest for “creative climate writing”. – Anthony

Subject: UEA Magazine – Climate Writing Clanger…

An article on page 16 of the University of East Anglia August/September

2012 Broadview Newsletter (see below/attached/link) invites MA students

to compete for prize money via creative writing on the subject of

climate change:

“The scholarship is open to all applicants to the Prose Fiction and Poetry strands of the MA, whose writing demonstrates a commitment to environmental themes, in particular to furthering the general understanding of the impact of climate change.”

Why not enter a synopsis of the output of Professor Phil Jones at the UEA Climate Research Unit? Many CRU pronouncements may not be ‘poetry’ but, rather than being based upon rigorous science, may eminently qualify as both ‘prose’ and ‘fiction’?

Here’s the text from: UEA–Broadview–August+12 (PDF)

£5,000 creative writing bursaries launched

Two new bursaries for postgraduates wanting to study creative writing at UEA have been announced. The Corsair Bursary will be awarded annually, and has been created to enable

someone to study for the MA Creative Writing (Prose Fiction).

The annual bursary, worth £5,000, is open to students undertaking the course who

will be aged 25 or younger at the start of the academic year in which they begin their

masters degree course at UEA.

The recipient will be chosen by a panel from Corsair, the literary imprint of publisher

Constable & Robinson, and based on the creative material submitted by students for

admission to the course. Meanwhile, the Onoto Creative Writing Scholarship will enable a student to study for the MA in Creative Writing at UEA.

The scholarship is open to all applicants to the Prose Fiction and Poetry strands

of the MA, whose writing demonstrates a commitment to environmental themes,

in particular to furthering the general understanding of the impact of climate

change.

The award is worth £5,000 towards the recipient’s course fees, plus an Onoto pen

worth £300. The first scholarship will be awarded in September 2013.

I would caution the new aspiring prose writers that the field of fictional climate change writing appears to be very close to saturation.
“The Corsair Bursary will be awarded annually, and has been created to enable someone to study for the MA Creative Writing (Prose Fiction)….. ….The scholarship is open to all applicants to the Prose Fiction and Poetry strands of the MA, whose writing demonstrates a commitment to environmental themes, in particular to furthering the general understanding of the impact of climate change.”
There are daily examples of fictional creative climate change writing. For example.
http://news.yahoo.com/climate-vs-weather-extreme-events-narrow-doubts-000143938.html
“Heatwaves, drought and floods that have struck the northern hemisphere for the third summer running are narrowing doubts that man-made warming is disrupting Earth’s climate system, say some scientists…. ….James Hansen, arguably the world’s most famous climate scientist, contends the link between extreme heat events and global warming is now all but irrefutable. The evidence, he says, comes not from computer simulations but from weather observations themselves.”

Recent historically low global tropical cyclone activity
Tropical cyclone accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) has exhibited strikingly large global interannual variability during the past 40-years. In the pentad since 2006, Northern Hemisphere and global tropical cyclone ACE has decreased dramatically to the lowest levels since the late 1970s. Additionally, the global frequency of tropical cyclones has reached a historical low.
Key Points
• In the past 5-years, global tropical cyclone activity has decreased markedly
• Tropical cyclone ACE is modulated by ENSO and PDO on a global scale
• Heightened North Atlantic hurricane activity is not unexpected
http://www.climatechangefacts.info/ClimateChangeDocuments/LandseaResignationLetterFromIPCC.htm
After some prolonged deliberation, I have decided to withdraw from participating in the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). I am withdrawing because I have come to view the part of the IPCC to which my expertise is relevant as having become politicized. In addition, when I have raised my concerns to the IPCC leadership, their response was simply to dismiss my concerns….
Shortly after Dr. Trenberth requested that I draft the Atlantic hurricane section for the AR4’s Observations chapter, Dr. Trenberth participated in a press conference organized by scientists at Harvard on the topic “Experts to warn global warming likely to continue spurring more outbreaks of intense hurricane activity” along with other media interviews on the topic. The result of this media interaction was widespread coverage that directly connected the very busy 2004 Atlantic hurricane season as being caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas warming occurring today. Listening to and reading transcripts of this press conference and media interviews, it is apparent that Dr. Trenberth was being accurately quoted and summarized in such statements and was not being misrepresented in the media. These media sessions have potential to result in a widespread perception that global warming has made recent hurricane activity much more severe. Moreover, the evidence is quite strong and supported by the most recent credible studies that any impact in the future from global warming upon hurricane will likely be quite small. The latest results from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (Knutson and Tuleya, Journal of Climate, 2004) suggest that by around 2080, hurricanes may have winds and rainfall about 5% more intense than today. It has been proposed that even this tiny change may be an exaggeration as to what may happen by the end of the 21st Century (Michaels, Knappenberger, and Landsea, Journal of Climate, 2005, submitted). It is beyond me why my colleagues would utilize the media to push an unsupported agenda that recent hurricane activity has been due to global warming. Given Dr. Trenberth’s role as the IPCC’s Lead Author responsible for preparing the text on hurricanes, his public statements so far outside of current scientific understanding led me to concern that it would be very difficult for the IPCC process to proceed objectively with regards to the assessment on hurricane activity.

Climate Clangers better credit their predecessor Trolley Song Judy Garland sang in the 1944 movie Meet Me in Saint Louis:
“Clang, clang, clang,” went the trolley,
“Ding, ding, ding,” went the bell.
“Zing, zing, zing,” went my heart-strings,

“Chug, chug, chug,” went the motor,
“Bump, bump, bump,” went the brake,
“Thump, thump, thump,” went my heart strings,
….

I could pass for 25 on a dark and stormy night. Right, my proposed entry is Hannah And Her Wierdsters, a Woody Allenish hilarous morality tale about global wierding and the dangers of poolside orgies during electrical storms. It’s absurd and has no connection really with the real world, but hey, according to Post Normal Science, the real world has no connection to the real world, so why should that stop me from winning the prize? (Never mind the pen. Can I have a leather jacket instead?)

It says poetry also, so here are a couple from Bishop Hill’s recent impromptu competition:
Who made the Maldives founder?
Who made the oceans boil?
Who made the coral crumble?
T’was us bad boys and goils.
There once was a group called “the Team”,
who invented the climate change meme,
but the data didn’t work,
so they made it all up,
and flatlined the whole Holocene.

Hey — I have a candidate to suggest…
http://pesticidetruths.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Reference-Culprit-Forman-2010-00-00-Biography.pdf
Mr. Forman holds a Master’s degree in philosophy from McGill University. He interned at The
Nation – America’s oldest weekly journal – and studied creative writing at the Banff Centre for the Arts. From 1997-2004, he was Vice President of Strategic Communications Inc., a firm that
provides political consulting and fundraising advice to the non-profit sector. In 1999, Strategic
Communications was named to The Profit 100 as one of Canada’s fastest growing firms.
In 2004, he became Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the
Environment (CAPE). Under his leadership, CAPE won a gold medal at the 2006 Canadian
Environment Awards. In 2007, he was the co-winner of a Virtuoso Award from the International
Association of Business Communicators (London, England). He is currently a Judge for the Green Toronto Awards. His reviews and essays have appeared in The Globe and Mail, The Canadian Forum, and The Toronto Star, among other publications.

As head of CAPE he makes things clear:

About the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE)
The association is an award-winning group of 5,400 doctors and concerned citizens working to provide education and advocacy to win environmental protection across Canada. Based in Toronto, the association is now working to close asbestos mines in Quebec, phase out coal-fired power in Ontario and ban lawn pesticides in British Columbia.
In its coal campaign, association members met with cabinet ministers to present reports showing coal contributes to cancer, climate change and brain damage. In recent years, the association has had a lot of success – banning pesticides in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes and pressuring the Ontario government to close all its coal plants by 2014 – the equivalent of removing six million cars from the road.

What more could you ask from an environmentalist…???

Bill Parsons
August 24, 2012 2:57 pm

Ah, I see Blair (August 24, 2012 at 10:34 am) is mining the same muse.
However, not many remember how Bulwer-Lytton’s notable fiction continues:

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents—except at unprecedented intervals of killing drought, whence violent duststorms swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the paltry flames of the lamps of skeptics that struggled against the darkness.

A powerful work of fiction.

August 24, 2012 3:04 pm

Clearly, all of us should submit a piece to this contest to give them something of substance to read on their way to acclaiming the usual puff-piece as the winner. Given a few thousand additional skeptical pieces they might ponder the truth.

Saturday I can’t go out to play.
Sunday I go to CAGW church,
Gonna kneel down and pray.
Mann have mercy,
Team have mercy on me.
Gore have mercy,

Though I’m tryin’ and tryin’ to find my Gaia,
Won’t someone please send her home to me.
Apologies to the song writers and all the great blues bands that have performed this song. Please have mercy on me.

Unfortunately, nobody at the UEA knows how to operate ‘The Excel’ (hushed silence).
…consequently these suggestions will be stored as pieces of paper in Phil’s shoe box. After some months, Keith will make a shambolic effort to rank the entries – but this will be halted when Keith loses his loaner laptop in Norwich. Finally Mann will write an abrupt email announcing that he is the winner.

Then the sea will rise over the atoll

That their balls will get wet
The Maldives won’t sink after all.

Many CRU pronouncements may not be ‘poetry’ but, rather than being based upon rigorous science, may eminently qualify as both ‘prose’ and ‘fiction’?

But isn’t the CRU temperature record your favorite? Because it shows a recent plateau that supposedly means that climate change had turned the corner.
And now your claiming this plateau is a fiction?

Here’s my entry. I first entered this under “Weather Cows” back in April. (“Weather Cows” had to do with which direction cows face in a storm.)
“All this talk of cows and weather predictions got me curious about something. So, to satisfy my curiosity, I checked out some old emails on the UVa. server. Lo and behold, I discovered that the lesser known but very first “Hockey Stick” wasn’t based on tree rings at all! It seems a certain someone studied a series of preserved hoof prints. Not being a farm boy, he could only tell which direction they faced by noting the location of any assoiated cow pies. After discarding those that didn’t have a cow pie, he determined the direction of the remainder. Assuming any wind coming from the direction of Tennessee would be warmer (for some unknown reason), he plotted his proxies and the very first “Hockey Stick” was born! But … alas … someone saw his raw data and it was discovered that he wasn’t looking at cow prints and cow pies at all but rather bull prints and bull … scat. But he liked his “Hockey Stick”! Rather than admit what “The Stick” was really based on, he looked for something else to plot that would produce the same results as the original bull-based plot. When he noticed the first rise of his stick seemed to correspond to Al Gore’s winning his first election, he turned to something wooden. This is how the second but better known “Hockey Stick” was born. And now you know the rest of the story!”
(Of course, I’d be disqualified if this turns out to non-fiction.8-(

This is an abstract of my submission for the prize:
A large outbreak of tornadoes, caused entirely by climate change, ravages Kansas. A farm house within which there is a little girl name Dori and her dog Toga is struck by a tornado and whirled into the air. It crashes far far away in the land of Penn where it kills an evil climate change warlock. The local people are so happy to be rid of the warlock they ask Dori and Toga to stay with them but Dori just wants to go home. So the locals give Dori some money and put her on the road to a nearby town where she can catch a bus to take her back to Kansas. On the way she meets several colorful characters and experiences some very unusual weather cause entirely by climate change. When she gets to the bus station she finds she doesn’t have enough money so she falls asleep in the waiting room. When she awakes she finds she’s back in the farmhouse, the tornado was just a dream and she realizes that climate change is the pre-eminent danger of all mankind. The End. PS I’d rather have the $300 than the pen (small bills please).

Six Scientists of Climate Change
There were six learned scientists
Who spoke upon a dais
They were environmentalists
And each one had a bias:
Each scientist within this list
Knew climate change would fry us.
These honest women, honest men
Read others’ proclamations
And sure they were: each one of them
From all the Earthly nations
Thought Climate Change results were in
— at everyone else’s stations
The first one measured Greenland ice
And nearly went berserk
It’s thicker! But upon advice
From his new PR clerk
He learned that Climate Change relies
On someone else’s work.
The second measured CO2
And how fast it would grow
He looked at rocks and ice cores too
From very long ago
It’s much less now! But this won’t do
So “that part we won’t show.”
For if we’ve got a tiny part
Of CO2 we had
When plants evolved and got their start
Why, more would make them glad
And grow much faster! But take heart:
He’s sure it’s really bad.
Another looks at temperature
By Jones and Mann and Hansen
The Hockey Stick is now unsure
(Poor methods they were chancin’)
Small towns are cooler? He’ll obscure
With clever software dancin’
The fourth? She quantifies our star
And how hot it appears
It’s now more radiant by far
Than in eight thousand years
But that increase won’t make the bar
Man can’t change solar gears
And still another looks at salt
The ocean deeps are trappin’
Effects aren’t large in ice, basalt
Or mud, but still they’re yappin’:
“New movies! Books! It’s mankind’s fault!
‘Cause you know, it COULD happen!”
The last of all is hunting trees
For signs unprecedented
He seeks in rings the cool degrees
He hopes the past presented
But evidence of warmth he sees
So that part he’s invented
And so on. Each researcher knows
Catastrophe is near!
And mankind is the cause. It grows
More dire every year
Despite that solid evidence
Is “everywhere but here.”
Each day they chanted, loud and long
To ward off private doubts
The news folks made the language strong
And now are doomsday touts
But read the research! PR’s wrong!
The data is what counts.

Apologies to CCR. Feel free to sing along
I see the cold sun arising.
I see trouble on the way
I see snowstorms afrightnin’.
I see bad times today.
Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to freeze your life,
There’s a cold sun on the rise.
I hear no hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear ice rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to freeze your life,
There’s a cold sun on the rise.
All right!
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to freeze your life,
There’s a cold sun on the rise.
