I see I’m keeping up my habit of posts that are near-incomprehensible even to me after only a few months; its just like writing Perl. Anyway, here’s my pick of the year, whilst we’re in that grey quiet phase between Christmas and the New Year.
Jan: Science (and the related Peer review)
Feb: The idealised greenhouse effect model and its enemies. Or, if you prfer politics, my lack-of-prescience over the Ukraine.
Mar: Investors warn of ‘carbon bubble’ as Shell predicts climate regulation will hit profits?
Apr: septic.org? – not in itself desperately exciting, but I’ll add it as a marker to what I don’t want to do, which is to spend too much time discussing the clowns. Other people do that better.
May: Adventures in the denialosphere; that’s just about compatible with my text of April, in that this is me bearding the clowns in their playpen over l’affaire Bengtsson. Andy Lacis’s comment on “What is it that determines the terrestrial climate and how it changes?” is also worth reading.
Jun: The Iraqi government really is rubbish, isn’t it? (eschewing Monkers, and with fall-back tale of local boy dun good). [Update: and a mention for Force X from outer space, since I spent some time commenting there.]
Jul: The Bomb Plot.
Aug: The fruitarians are lazy.
Sep: Stubai: Wilder Freiger to the Muller Hutte – this one can stand for the rest. The other half of my summer hols was the Peloponnese.
Oct: Wadhams and the mighty [sh|tw]it storm in honour of this year’s sea ice being dull. And, of course, “Chopper” responds. But I also like Limiting global warming to 2°C: the philosophy and the science?
Nov: The dim and distant history of climate blogging.
Dec: A clever compiler is indistinguishable from malice.
