    Just a quick heads up – check out the article ‘Victory Declared for the Climate Denialists’ – in today’s The Drum.

    • Thanks Red. I had seen this one. I started subscribing to Graham Redfearn recently. I wouldn’t mind reading the Manne essay though I suspect it just says what I have been thinking for quite awhile and that is that money can buy stupidity. I also think though that within just a few years, most people will be forced to accept reality when the Arctic is completely ice free at least once, if the PIOMAS modelling is correct, and there is no reason to suspect it isn’t.

    Money surely buys stupidity….

    snip. Well done. First visit here and you’ve been snipped. Familiarise yourself with the rules of my blog if you wish to comment further.

  3. Mike,
    not sure whether I left my entry on the right page. I assume you’ll get it anyway. thanks for all the hard work.

    • Thanks for that and welcome. I just managed to dodge my own facepalm. Anthony would desperately like to not be called a denier and somehow swing it around the other way and in his little bubble world where he wilfully ignores the real scientists in favour of morons like Bob Tisdale I guess that’s what happens. Given that he seemed to think a couple of undergrad units on climate related subjects allowed him to claim he had a degree in climatology, his judgement on anything relating to climate is questionable.

  4. Greetings, I enjoy reading your blog. This article maybe of interest to you:

    Cheers, Kurt Liffman

  5. Hi Mike. Why are comments turned off for The astounding global warming impact on our oceans that will reduce cloud cover and bring tears to your eyes…?

    I just wanted to say that I had not read your post when I started to read Lovelock’s book (Revenge of Gaia) and/or write my post about it recently.

    Has anyone falsified Lovelock’s finding that the Earth’s total ecological carrying capacity could fall off a cliff at 500ppm CO2..? All I have seen is people like Bjorn Lomborg getting free publicity in supposedly-sensible newspapers like the New York Times – repeating the lie that there are no limits to growth at all. See Joe Romm on ThinkProgress for details/background.

    SNIP. You obviously decided to comment before reading the rules of my blog. Feel free to familiarise yourself with them. You see, I’m really not interested in what idiots like you have to say. I realise and appreciate that what you typed is something you probably considered witty and funny, but in reality it was actually quite lame. By moderating it, I have done you a favour in that anyone else reading here will not be able to confirm that you are in fact an idiot and will just have to rely on my assessment to that end. As you don’t seem to have anything of real value to add, I will advise you to go elsewhere with your stupidity. All of your future comments, will be placed in moderation, and should you come up with something vaguely coherent I will consider publishing it.

    Gidday Uknowispeaksense, I see you’ve started up a blog here. You haven’t been going for a long time, which is good , might as well close it right here now.


    Putting yourself in a position where you’re open to public debate,

    Wrong. Having a blog does not automatically infer rights on everyone to post their feelpinions.

    you can come up against some nasty surprises from unexpected quarters particularly if if you’ve painted yourself into a corner by saying stridantly, things that driven by ideology, ignorance or sheer perversity. So it is also good for you that you’ve maintained anonymity.

    Thinly veiled threats is never a good way to initiate a fruitful discussion.

    Take a little time off the blog here Uknowispeaksense,


    and read this one comment , and the links, I’ve said here…

    SNIP: Sorry but linking to a comment you’ve made elsewhere where you spout Roy Spencer’s drivel falls outside my blog rules.

    Cheers and kind regards,

    I don’t believe you for as moment.


    • Thanks for the link. Very informative. Great to see NZ television taking AGW seriously. Oh, and welcome to the moderated group.

      This is the same Mack that plagued Deltoid, under a number of cok puppets including Sunspot and Karen.

      Even after several years of smacking his hands in a futile effort to train him, he still has the same peculiar punctuation tells – and the utterly doolally ignorance of science…

      Block his arse.

    …sock puppets…

    • Mack

      Aaahahahahahahahaha……is that you Bernerd J :) ” Mack that plaqued Deltoid” Yeees Bernerd, one and the same Mack. And look what has happened to Deltoid ! It’s become a basket case with no moderation, foul language, and you can abuse and cuss and say anything you like. It’s just one perpetual open thread. You yourself said that Tim had given up. He has. He’s come to his senses. He’s thought for himself for a change. He’s gained perspective and realism. about AGW . But judging from the response from uknowispeaksense to my first comment . I would have a long hard road ahead of me here.

      • Inferring that I, and others like me are senseless will make it a very long hard road. So far you have two comments, neither of which have offered anything of any value whatsoever. It should be fairly clear that I am not interested in publishing denier rot. If you submit another comment that does not conform to my rules, you will progress from the moderation queue to spam and I rarely check that list before deleting. If you want a challenge, knock yourself out. I wouldn’t waste my time though.

        • Mack

          Yes sorry uknowispeaksense. I will go away. I clicked on your blog rules….”Update Aug 5th 2013′ “I am no longer accepting any comments on this blog from people taking a denial position” That’s very clear – very much like Barry Brook over at Brave New Climate. He implemented that rule many years ago after other denialists and myself were allowed to comment on his site. He seems quite comfortable now.
          So adieu , leaving you with this young German who knowshespeaksense….
