And maybe a court case too:

https://mobile.twitter.com/aDissentient/status/1372956556556386313

I’m hearing that Michael Mann’s case against the National Review has been dismissed, opening the way to a very expensive claim for costs. Story needs to be verified.

How Climate “Scientists” determine CO2 caused yesterday’s bad weather?

A Ouija board? Really! I thought they read the Washington post or asked someone like Al Gore or maybe Nancy or Chuck. I wouldn’t think that they would put their jobs on the line with something as unreliable as a Ouija board.

Could it be any worse than a computer model.

It’s undoubtedly BETTER than a “climate model;” at least its errors are random, as opposed to being inextricably connected with the input assumption errors, which guarantee the wrong answers 100% of the time.

Mr. Alberts: Yes, but if we average out the ouija “models”, we can see CAGW in 100 years!

Speaking of funny stuff, here’s Dr. Stephen Schneider in Leonard Nimoy’s “In Search of the Coming Ice Age” in 1978:

https://youtu.be/RQRqr9_jw5I?t=1205

And here he is [0:48 & 5:16] three years later in 1981, in The Thames Television documentary “Warming Warning”

https://youtu.be/9zHAbYOXjzk?t=46

The 1981 “Warming Warning” documentary is thought to be the earliest “Global Warming” alarm bell sounded by the media. So it’s been forty years. Isn’t forty a common number for bad things? Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness, Lizzy Borden’s forty whacks with an axe, Ali Babba and the forty thieves etc. Well anyway, Climate Change is having a fortieth birthday August 12th. And don’t forget it will be 33 years since Dr. James Hansen testified before congress this coming June 23rd.

He was one of the most physically fit and well coordinated POTUSes ever. A couple of uncommon (to him) incidents on video, and Chevy Chase on SNL, and the rest is (unreal) history.

But then, we are pretty used to “unreal history” these days.

Well, if the leftwing media had said Biden tripped because of the injury he had sustained earlier while playing with his dog, they might have had a plausible explanation. But, instead, the leftwing media said the wind caused him to slip. How ridiculous! The wind was blowing about 10mph at the time.

Fox News has been making comparisons with the way the Leftwing media handled Biden’s stumble, and the way they handled Trump “tippy-toeing” down a ramp after giving a speech at the military academy.

The Leftwing Media made much of Trump’s slow, careful walk down the ramp, making it out like Trump was old and feeble. What they didn’t tell you was Trump was wearing leather-soled shoes which can be like walking on ice when you are walking down a metal ramp, as he was.

What the Leftwing media didn’t show (and Fox News didn’t either) was what happened when Trump got to the bottom of the ramp. Trump hopped off the ramp like a young vigourous man, and proceeded to walk normally across the lawn. But the propagandists didn’t show that part because it would have put the lie to their anti-Trump narrative.

They are such liars.

I see where a federal judge said yesterday that the New York Times and the Washington Post and most of the broadcast media were Democrat operatives posing as news people! He said this situation was a danger to the nation. He is exactly right. We need to put this guy on the Supreme court!

I’ve completely given up on MSM its too biased as you say. If a news topic is of concern it’ll likely be mentioned on wuwt and I’ll get a much more realistic account of what is really happening eg despite there still being much confusion about covid I consider I have a better understanding than those who just get there opinion given to them by the TV or a newspaper.

The media spent days talking about Trump walking slowly down a slippery ramp.

Biden tripping, twice, while going up the stairs? Crickets.

Hoping that Warragamba Dam can somehow cope and they don’t have to release the big spillway.. That would cause major flooding all down the Hawkesbury River.

This is getting serious. !

Nice. Walter Munk, 20 years ago or more, published a paper arguing that tidal gauges seem to be located preferentially in non-representative places. If you think about the great ocean gyres, and the coriolis acceleration interaction with them, what you conclude, I think, is that coastal levels are going to rise with each slowdown of a gyre, and fall with each speed-up– an opposite effect to what goes on within the associated gyre.
