The Josh 'climate selfie' – and livetooning the Michael Mann lecture at Bristol

Yesterday Josh finished all of his cartooning related to my trip to the UK, the meetings with skeptical friends, and the Mann lecture. I present them all here because he’s been waiting for me to recover from my trip enough to resume regularly scheduled programming. Now that I have mostly recovered (though still a bit stiff from air travel confinement), I can post them all here in one nice tidy package. Enjoy.

And, since I can never say this enough, thanks to all of my friends in the UK for their hospitality, their support, and traveling often hundreds of miles just to say hello. The trip, made possible by WUWT readers, was both successful, and humbling.

climate_selfie_UK_trip[ Josh adds: includes Anthony Watts, Nic Lewis, Andrew Montford, David & Kate Holland, Caroline K, Richard Drake, Katabasis, James Delingpole, Leo Hickman, Richard Betts, Barry Woods, Michel Opdebeeck, Stephan Lewandowsky, John Cook and me holding Michael Mann in place for this historic moment. Were you there too? I drew you in the back somewhere 😉 ]

The Mann Lecture at Bristol

(some thoughts here).

The first cartoon is from our meeting prior to the lecture at Caroline K’s house. The second is from the lecture itself.


We all signed and sent a nice postcard to Dr. Judith Curry after the meeting, which was promoted by some of the elements above. In the panel below, Prof. Lewandowsky was leaning up against the lectern exactly like that as he rambled off a long list of accolades for Dr. Mann during his introduction.Josh_mann-bristol_2

Sigh, I should have gone…
But my spiky gene pool would probably have been discordant.
Still, now I feel like I was there. Thanks, Josh.

But the “Mann-made Gobal Warming” is real!

Great ‘selfie’! I just want to know, is it Nic Lewis or Delingpole(?) goose-ing MM – or has he sat on his hockey-stick?

Love them all. Michael Mann looks like he has just read the CEI brief, and his sphincter went into spasms.

OMG! (It’s appropriate) – I’ve just spotted that MM is wearing a clerical collar!

When they say: “Climate Chaos!”
We say: “Exactly”

M. Mann?
So last century.
He may as well take that final step and become a paid “expert” and spend his sunset years in court cases … he’s practically there already.

“Use these tree rings, not these. (Don’t worry because Mike can tell the difference)”
Q: How can Mike know which tree rings to use?
A: It’s easy. They’re the ones which fit his favorite models. 🙂

Accommodations can always be made with other people. It’s a simple matter of choice, or not.

Here is how it’s done from Columbia Business School when Glenn Hubbard was passed over for Ben Bernake.

Did they pose like that or was it drawn from memory?

Ha ha! Love the Climate Selfie! 🙂 Maybe that will be included in the 2015 WUWT wall calendar…?

I think we all need climate sensitivity training.

It’s the “climate science” apologists who need sensitivity training.

“Michael Mann, get thee behind me!” Great job, Anthony and Josh!

September 25, 2014 9:04 pm

Which THREE rings is M. Mann referring to I wonder?

Love the toons Josh, looking forward to the 2015 calendar.
In a misquote.
You came, you saw, you conquered.
You weren’t invited, you didn’t say a word and you were treated like a hero! (rightly so)
That must have rankled with his holy Mannness.
Good job Mr Watts.

Mann’s Penn State in the news:
“This year, it was Penn State’s turn to continue the tradition of violating the Constitution on Constitution Day. But why? Lawyers for public universities should know that shutting down speech exposes them to First Amendment lawsuits. Furthermore, passing out copies of the Constitution performs a valuable educational service that many universities don’t perform on their own. If anything, Penn State should be thanking Jolie Davis and the other PSU YAF student activists.”
