Blogging on climate change – a job for the brave

  1. Been away on business for a few weeks & find Graeme Readfearn is back on the scene. Nice one Graeme, thanks for the mention. That was one of the more heated blogs Ive participated in over the years, which often felt like a spill over area for Andrew Bolt fans, worked up by the worldwide conspiracy of scientists & enraged by the apparent determination of Graeme to defend the rise of communism, socialism, nasizm, de-industrialization of the west & advocate of our rapid return to cave life……well so they appeared to think, lol.

    It looks like the only other environmental blog on the news.ltd site, the daily telegraphs green blog by Mark Mann has also gone by the wayside, as it appears to have disappeared off the face of the blogosphere. Leaving the public to get informed & balanced opinions off the likes of Bolt, Blair , Akerman & Albrechsten…sigh. Ah well, its not like its a secret that its a conservative news outlet anyways so meh.

    Some interesting articles & media over the past few weeks I thought I’d mention.

    On the positive side. A fantastic interactive timeline “A journey through climate history” from the ABC:

    Some use of Ove’s photos on the ocean topics.

    Also, news from the Falklands that they are moving to wind energy & can currently get up to 60% of the islands power on a good day.

    By mid 2010, they plan to have 40% of the islands power generated from wind.

    On the negative side a snippet of coverage from conservative abc presenters Michael Duffy & Paul Comrie-Thompson about the Oxford Union “Economic Growth debate”.

    Its enough to make you gag. Duffy & Thompson are enthrawled & delighted by the master full wit & commonsense of their fellow conservatives Monckton & Dellingpole. Hard to close your gaping mouth.

    Even more forehead slapping stuff from the dynamic dunces is their idolizing Anthony Watts :

    They & Watts talk about surfacestations.org like it is something new & was never ridiculed by NOAA:

    And they also have amnesia it seems when it comes to the fact that the 2010 Menne paper thoroughly debunked Watts & in fact showed there was a net cooling effect & even when all of Watts so called suspect stations were taken out of the picture, the trend was still up. Idiot.

    Sadly for humanity & Australia, Watts will be here this weekend, reminiscent of the Monckton carnival sideshow.

    A right wingers heaven. I think I’m going to vomit in my mouth……whoops, too late.
