I offer @ClimateOfGavin help understanding events -vs- trends

Yesterday, when Climategate 3 was released, the ever flippant Dr. Gavin Schmidt made this Tweet in response: Source: Google Trends, searching the word “climategate” from December 2009 to March 2013 http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=Climategate&date=12%2F2009%2040m&cmpt=q It seems that Dr. Schmidt doesn’t understand the difference between events and trends. Climategate was an event, so of course it was represented by…

Commitment studies belie "consensus" claim that a persistent high level of temperature forcing cannot cause continued warming

To his credit, Dr. Ruedy has now corrected the issue that I highlighted here. I appreciate his response. Some email addresses were redacted to prevent autospamming – Anthony From: Ruedy, Reto A.…

Gavin on the ropes over heat wave explanation

Tom Nelson writes: If CO2 is really such an all-powerful warming factor, and if the science is so settled, why does warmist Gavin Schmidt have so much trouble explaining why the southeastern US hasn’t warmed since the 1930s?: “Whether this is due to some oddity in the weather patterns, air pollution effects, irrigation or something…

Gavin Schmidt talk at URI

WUWT reader Gary writes in with this: Gavin Schmidt gave a lecture at my University yesterday and I thought you might like to see it. He starts at 21 minutes into the clip. The Metcalf Institute seeks to communicate science to the public. It was a pedestrian talk for an educated public audience and used…
