Something worrying is happening chez QS…

I’ve been measuring the temperature in my house for the last 150 days, and, having put the raw data through my computer and plotted the result on a graph, I can announce with a high degree of confidence that …my house is getting warmer!

An Orwellian example…

I’ve spent the last day or so reading the responses by Dr Paul G Bain to the various emails and such he received in reply to the letter to Nature – “Promoting pro-environmental action in climate change deniers” (Paul G Bain et al) The gist of his response is that he regrets the word “deniers”, which … Continue reading

Are you now or have you ever been….

Open email from Gordon Fulks concerning the firing of Nikolas Drapela PhD from OSU. He claims no reason was given for the summary dismissal, and thinks it might be connected with Drapela’s vocal skepticism about AGW theory. I can’t confirm or deny the claim.
