Guest Post by Ira Glickstein.
Oceanographer Gregory Johnson, Lead Author of the IPCC AR5 chapter on marine measurements, has summarized the entire 2,200 pages in 19 nicely illustrated haiku. Haiku is an artful Japanese writing form with a 5-7-5 cadence.
Here is one example that stood out for me.
But IPCC Climate Models seem to get worse over time, see my recent posting.
To his credit, Johnson does acknowledge the “pause” and even attributes some of it to the Sun (low Sunspot cycles?). But also to volcanos, and, of course, all that heat hiding in the oceans.
I did a search on “WUWT haiku” and found this much better example from Willis Eschenbach’s the Moon is a Cold Mistress:
O beautiful full moon!
Circling the pond all night
even to the end
Matsuo Basho, 1644-1694
Speaking of Haikus, this was posted on The Weather Channel recently. – Anthony
‘all that happens proves my faith
press all say ‘amen’
More grant money sates
angry academic gods
lapping at the trough
