    What claim is it that you think I am making?
    As a point of information, it is as well to remind our respondents that the IPCC does not claim acceleration in the satellite mesurement era since the early 1990s, just acceleration since the 20th century, some of which may be due to measurement improvement.

    But if deniers want to cite measurement improvement, they will have to admit the measurement actually improved - however they seem to prefer coastal tidal gauges to satellites.

    Note that satellites in the crazy denier world are better for measuring temperature, but not for measuring sea level.

    The book reminds me just how viciously stupid have been the left’s attempts to gag debate on global warming. Had the only evidence available supported the warmists’ cause, there might have been something worth continuing to discuss. Instead, with the abrupt end to the warming phase between fifteen and twenty years ago (depending on whose charts and numbers you prefer), and which has followed the solar cycle in the exact way temperatures have always done, we should actually be looking at the effects that may follow if a solar minimum is about to recur, as it did during the Little Ice Age which ended not all that long ago. Suppose the Thames were to begin freezing over again, as it last did in 1802, how will we get on in a world of such cold and reduced growing seasons? Try that out in conversation the next time some propaganda-programmed dimwit brings up climate change.

    Global warming is climate change for idiots. A cooling climate may be the real thing and the possibility should be treated with the utmost seriousness. The subtitle, “Why Life in the 21st Century Will Be Nasty, Brutish and Short’’, is exactly what the book explains. It’s a book with a message we should all be thinking about, and not just here in Australia but across the world.

    Sea level rise has slowed. (It must be time to correct that data!)

    The Universe is surely conspiring against ecologicist scientists*. Their task is to convince the world that things are dire, and yet just as humans pump out more carbon dioxide pollution than ever before, many natural markers start behaving as if CO2 was having barely any effect at all. It’s all potentially so misleading.

    A new paper by Cazenave et al 2014 digs deep to uncover the reasons for yet another unfortunate un-catastrophic trend change.





    Very interesting.

    actually, nothing Essex has to say about climate is interesting. He was once one of the most active climate deniers associalted with McKittrick (with whom he co-authored one rather silly book), Singer and others. He was one of the Heartland Institute's panel of experts and an avid presenter for the Cato Institute,

    Among other things.

    He became less active when given the plum position of Chaiman of the NSERC by a grateful denier - our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. That put him on charge of the grant deciding for the federal government, to universities and added to Canada's increasing backwardness and irrelevance in scientific research. Canada had been a leader until Harper.

    Did I mention that he has no background in climate science or research? Or that he is most famous for saying that "there is no such thing as a global temperature?

    David Archibald! Always good for a laugh.

    It could be interesting to a neuroscientist or psychiatrist, though.
