Now available in US/Canada: The Cartoons by Josh/WUWT Climate Calendar for 2017


Josh writes: It’s been another hilarious year and the Cartoons by Josh Calendar is just the way to remember throughout 2017.

There are two versions: a UK version (see left) which is printed and sold via the Cartoons by Josh website; and a US version which is printed in the US and available on WUWT.

You can order the UK version of the Calendar here

The US version – see below –  will be available via Anthony, see details below.

Anthony adds: This year, the calendar also features some of the Cartoons that were posted in the hilarious book about Michael Mann, from Mark Steyn titled ‘A Disgrace to the Profession’, reviewed here, and available from Amazon here.

Here is a page from that calendar that shows the Cartoons done for Steyn’s book, in the lower left:


These make great Christmas gifts for yourself, your friends, or some of those special people like Mike Mann that need some cheer and enlightenment. Recall that Dr. Mann turned our simple gift into another conspiracy theory rant. No hard feelings, I’m happy to send him a new calendar once again this year.

This marks the fourth year that the calendar has been offered. we still have to chuckle over what Dr. Mann said the first year we offered it:


Here is the US version cover for this year, seen below:


Each calendar is $19.99 plus $5 shipping (plus $1.35 packaging and handling -total $6.35) plus tax for your state (sorry, can’t escape that one) and will be shipped direct to you.

Josh and I split the profit.

  • Printed on durable, matte cardstock
  • Hanger hole punched at the top
  • Measures 8½” x 11″ closed, 17″ x 11″ open
  • Delivery by US Mail (delivered in about 5-15 business days, may be slightly longer for Canada)
  • And, in addition to regular holidays, it has some special days marked on the calendar too.


ORDERING: USA/Canadian readers can place calendar orders here.

NOTE: UK/European readers should order via Josh’s website here.

We will be closing orders the day after Christmas, so buy early, buy often.

And I want Sunday on the same line with Saturday. That way a weekend becomes week-end as it was intended to be. The preference is by-partisan; usable by both, alarmists and skeptics.

When the train arrives in Pine Tree, there’s not a snowflake in sight, and chances of it falling appear dim. Bob and Phil discover that the inn is run by their former commanding officer, General Waverly. Waverly has invested all of his savings into the lodge, which is in danger of failing because there’s no snow and thus no guests. link

Clear proof that, even in the 1940s, global warming was serious business.

Well, I waited for someone else to affirm you, but, here I am (again — cringe) to say — Yes, indeed, Bob. GREAT research and point, Bob. Thanks for sharing!
The high surface temperature records of the 1930’s still stand. Very likely the writer of the 1942 script (or of the story upon which it was based, if that is the case) still recalled those sweltering temperatures….
And a little more history.

*** felt across the entire United States. … and portions of Canada …
For you snow-lovers, how do you think the winters that followed the heat waves of 1930 and 1936 fared for Washingtonians? I can sum it up in one word, depressing. Of course, if you like tennis weather or afternoon strolls without an overcoat, the winters of 1930/31 and 1936/37 were awesome.
During the winter that followed the 1930 heat wave, there were only 3 days which had temperatures below freezing all day and only 2.5″ of snow fell during the entire winter season. Temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s were common during the winter months, with 67°F recorded on January 27.
The winter that followed the heat wave of 1936 was even milder than 1930 for Washington. During that winter, there was only 1 day which had temperatures below freezing all day and temperatures in the 60’s were common throughout the winter months. An amazing high temperature of 76°F was recorded on January 9. ..

Somehow ‘they’ are able to adjust the extraordinary temperatures of the 1930s/40s so they don’t count in the big picture.
The reason I am a skeptic is that Michael Mann tried to adjust the MWP and LIA out of existence. When the purported temperature record conflicts with written history, I’ll go with history every day of the week. 🙂

Janice, just to carry on from a previous discussion:
Surprising that you didn’t know what knickers are.
I’m not sure when “knickers” became the standard term for bloomers, but it was well before 70 years ago. It was the only term I knew for ages, both in Britain and Australia. I was astonished to learn that Americans called them by the weak-minded, infantile, term “panties”. (But author Sue Grafton’s PD, Kinsey Millhone, robustly calls them “underpants”. I normally think of those as male garments.)
This brings me to one the things I do dislike about American English – the inability to understand how the language works, or what the words actually mean. I have started seeing the phrase “a pair of underwear”! “Pair” requires plurality, but “underwear” is uncountable. And this tone-deafness is found in such phrases as “based off of” and “based out of”. I cannot decide whether this comes from people not knowing the meaning of “base”, that things stand on bases (base = foundation) or are in bases (base = centre of operations), or whether it comes from people thinking that “off” means “on”, and “out” means “in”.
But I’ll stop there.

Mr. Ro –ha! 🙂
Ahem. In America, ladies undergarments are not a subject for polite conversation.
Re: “knickers” — no one I know or have read has EVER used that term other than for the knee-length trousers in the photo I posted. Just not used that way in the U.S. — at all.
Re: a “pair” Do you not say a “pair of trousers?” There are 2 leg holes. That is what creates the “pair” of: jeans, pajamas, or unmentionables.
Re: “based off of” — No one I know speaks or writes that way. Are you sure it was an American (a reasonably literate one) you heard/read? “Based on,” as in, “His dislike for American English appears to be based on a biased sample,” is what I’ve heard.
“Based out of” would refer to the geographical location a person called “the home office” or “headquarters” or a like location. “Roha is based out of Australia,” for instance.
And Roha, you are focusing at times on slang. Slang just is what it is. It comes and goes. Just try to ignore it. It isn’t proper “American.” Don’t the British have any sloppy ways of putting things which might also bother you?
Let us, we British and Americans, just love each other and overlook our differences (except to discuss them in a friendly tone), okay?

Dear EJ!
Merry Christmas to YOU! 🙂 Thank you, oh, *blush*, wow. That was so kind of you. Looking forward to more wonderful poetry/creative writing from you, dear lady of many talents WITH GREAT POTENTIAL. 🙂
P.S. Until about 15 years ago, when they became generally known as “flip-flops” (for a very good reason — heh), we scuffed around in the summers in our thongs here in the U.S., too. I accidentally used that term last summer, “Those are cute thongs, I mean flip-flops,” with a 20-something year old young woman. She knew what I meant, and smiled.

Those thongs always required Band-Aids between the toes on a sandy shore along Lake Superior for me.
Needless to say, they still aren’t in my wardrobe choices, ouch ! Give me a regular sandal.

Yeah. I didn’t wear thongs after about age 12. I liked the Bass open healed sandal — that was my beach footwear for years. Lol, “pedal-pushers” (as they were called in NW Washington State). I remember that term. And I also remember that by the time I had my bicycle paper route in 4th grade, bell bottoms were what we were wearing — “Shoot! Stuck in the chain again.” 🙂

About 10:35AM, December 17, 1903, Orville Wright made the first powered, controlled, sustained, flight of a heavier-than-air machine. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet (37 meters). Orville and his brother Wilbur made three more flights that day, the longest of which covered 852 feet (260 meters) in 59 seconds.
With this telegram, sent from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in the late afternoon of the same day, Orville informed their father of the achievement:
Success four flights this morning
all against twenty one mile wind
started from Level with engine power alone
average speed through air thirty one miles
longest 57 seconds

And look at how far engineers have taken us!
