For your information
I’ve posted another ‘video’ dedicated blogspot containing three animated graph by Andy Lee Robinson and a video of NASA satellite data, 
all documenting the astounding rate of Arctic ice loss.

Hope you don’t mind me sharing this.
But it just seems that solid information like this assortment of videos in reply to specific contrarian claims needs to be seen and considered by way the heck more people.

“The Forbes conversation continues - 13 points examined”

As the world warms the “manmade global warming” debate gets ever more surreal. 

Seems that no matter how much evidence accumulates, the Republican power-politic devotees come up with ever more disconnected claims and rationalizations. 

Couple days ago I was confronted with the following 13 points, (15 including the intro and closing), by one “scottar” over at the Forbes’ comments pages.  After his jabbing intro he begins his list with “You-all have failed to account for:”

It turned out, his items are very well accounted for and the list of 13 was little more than a list highlighting scottar’s profound misunderstanding of climatology. 

Rather than swapping claims and opinions I thought I would simply share a variety of educational videos that directly speak to his various claims.  And then I invited some calm fact-based defense of his various claims and commentary on the lessons offered in the videos I shared.


Yea, yea, the waterline keeps rising but for the time being I’m going to keep on bailing with my tea cup.

Uncertainty when we do not have a spare planet is so comforting.

Of course if we had a spare planet in this solar system most of us could not get there.

Nuke the economists!

And the beat goes on: Pascal Bruckner   grrr

Pascal Bruckner’s “Fanaticism of the Apocalypse” - A Citizen’s Response
http://whatsupwiththatwatts.blogspot.com/2013/06/pascal-bruckners-fanaticism-of.html
Tuesday, June 18, 2013


Pascal Bruckner a professional thinker who’s been described as the “Gallic Gadfly” and “a goad, a self-declared man of the left who considers the influence of leftist ideology on contemporary France to have been, by and large, disastrous…” {see The Gallic Gadfly }. 

Thus it was odd to see Anthony WUWT embracing him, but who knows what’s going on at WUWT these days.  In any event, I’m tired of stuff like this going unopposed so here’s another critical review together with a few selected educational videos and links to sources that help describe some of the scientific aspects of climatology that Bruckner seems unaware of…
