Stalking the Rogue Hotspot

[I’m making this excellent essay a top sticky post for a day or two, I urge sharing it far and wide. New stories will appear below this one.  – Anthony] Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Dr. Kevin Trenberth is a mainstream climate scientist, best known for inadvertently telling the world the truth about the parlous…

The rise of the peccatogenesists

An interesting new word came up this week on Twitter thanks to Hillary Rosner. It would seem to be a derivative of the word pecadillo: I think this is the perfect word to describe many of the disingenuous activists like Al Gore, Joe Romm, Brad Johnson, Mayor Bloomberg, and Bill McKibben who see “human caused…

The battle of the pointless Nuremberg insults: Romm -vs- Delingpole

UPDATE: 4/11/13 Mr. Delingpole has made two responses: In the Spectator: http://www.spectator.co.uk/columnists/james-delingpole/8885551/no-i-wont-say-sorry-even-to-a-friend/ In the Telegraph: http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100211704/apologise-to-michael-mann-anthony-id-rather-eat-worms/ I’ll post my response this weekend. – Anthony ============================================================= We don’t need either side of the climate debate invoking Godwin’s Law on any level, as it is ugly and pointless, yet here we are again. I’m growing weary of…

July hottest ever, but U.S. tornado count – lowest since 1951: 'poisoned weather' meme falsified by Nature

“Connect the Dots” for this one. Mother Nature has just proven how idiotic some one the arguments trying to link global warming and severe weather are: in this case, the “global warming makes more tornadoes” argument has just gone down in flames. Given how hot July was in the USA, setting a new record high…

Facepalm! Gore's "dirty energy = dirty weather" claims about the US are laughable in the context of other countries

Al Gore, is his usual incompetent persona, is bloviating weapons grade nonsense again. A few prior examples: On TV, Earth’s core is millions of degrees, in AIT, snows of Mt. Kilimanjaro will gone due to global warming, except the snows are growing, and Gore’s 24  hours of Climate Reality “high school science” that is so…

Roger Pielke Jr. calls out Joe Romm explicity

Pants on fire and all that – but well deserved. Kudos to Pielke Jr, for speaking out. http://rogerpielkejr.blogspot.com/2012/05/joe-romm-is-liar.html He says it isn’t the first time. It will be interesting to see Joe Romm’s reaction spin to this charge. It seems that Heartland has listed Roger Pielke Jr. as one of their experts here: http://heartland.org/roger-pielke But…

Heartland's Billboards and Joe Romm's stunning hypocrisy

UPDATE5: 5/5/10:30AM Donna Laframboise pulls out of the conference. http://nofrakkingconsensus.com/2012/05/05/why-i-wont-be-speaking-at-the-heartland-conference/ Instead, those of us who had accepted Heartland’s invitation to take part in its conference found ourselves blindsided – a mere two weeks before the conference is set to begin – by a torrent of negative press. Suddenly, we were all publicly linked to an…
