Friday Funny: Climate emotion – for your smartphone

Josh tips me to this new trend. We’ve always known that the global climate issue and emotion seem to go together. After all, who can forget “weepy” Bill McKibben’s crying over some drought parched corn, or Ben Santer’s temptation to “beat the crap out of pat Michaels”. For just such occasions where millennials need to…

Steve McIntyre discovers another hockey stick

Steve McIntyre the Canadian mining engineer and math wizard who discovered why Michael E. Mann’s original hockey stick of global temperature data was made of bunkum wood, has now discovered yet another one, and it appears not to use adjusted data, but raw data. This one also indicates temperature, but of a different kind. It…

Another Manntastic Climate Horror Scenario Bites the Dust

Via NoTricksZone: The jet stream is going to be just fine. PIK alarm story fails the test of science: Jet Stream will also meander as usual in the future By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated by P Gosselin) Almost one year ago the Potsdam PIK Institute put out a press…

Bob Ward’s @ret_ward Retwarded thinking again

From CliScep, our “little green mann” Bob Ward is at it again. Does Bob Have a Problem With Gender Equality? by JAIME JESSOP I only ask because, as a female sceptic myself (and very much not alone in that respect) it would seem from his comments that he likes to think that a vast majority of climate sceptics are…

Friday Funny: The One Holy Underlying Theory of All Weather

TOO FRIGID FOR GLOBAL WARMING? THIS IS WHY THEY REBRANDED IT ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ Date: 07/01/18 Rex Murphy, National Post Any variety of weather whatsoever can be traced, if you keep the grants flowing and the contradictions unexamined, to the One Holy Underlying Theory of All Weather. [excerpt} Fortunately, the Jesuitical mandarins of Pembina and Greenpeace…

Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Freeze’

Josh has something to say, or rather, draw, about the recent kerfuffle over Al Gore and Michael Mann’s beliefs as covered here on WUWT and in the Washington Times: Al Gore under fire for claiming icy storm is ‘exactly what we should expect from climate crisis’ Former vice president links freezing weather along eastern seaboard…

Cartoons by Josh Calendar 2018

The best way to remember how entertaining (or horrifying) climate science, energy policy etc, has been in 2017 is to buy a Cartoons by Josh Calendar 2018. The calendar is a new size this year and while the cartoons are the same size the space for the diary dates is reduced. This cuts the printing…

Friday Funny, if only they had signed that treaty…

Cartoonist Rick McKee of the Augusta Chronicle has captured the essence of the alarmist sentiments over our current hurricane situation where there’s a blame-a-minute coming from the left…because climate is weather and all that. While the cartoon may be funny to some, and not others, let it be said that in no way does it…

Science Gone Stupid: Public Interest in Biodiversity Edition

Guest post by David Middleton DAILY SCIENCE Is interest in biodiversity declining? by Brandon Keim | Jul 26, 2017 Google Trends, the data-scouring tool that lets people explore historical trends in search terms, is not a perfect window into cultural consciousness. Data is too cloudy for that. It is, however, an useful spotlight, good for glimpsing patterns and…

Monday Mirthiness – Trump, and Comey, and Gore – oh my!

From the “weather is not covfefe” department Lately, the political world has gone mad…especially after President Trump exited the Paris Climate Agreement. Conspiracies and subterfuge are being seen everywhere, scapegoats season is open, congressional hearings expected to produce heads on a platter are turning into big fat nothing-burgers, and the left seems unable to come…

Friday Funny – the first consequence of exiting the #ParisAgreement

Almost immediately after Trump announced he’d exit the Paris Climate Accord, the world went haywire. Dilbert creator, Scot Adams, was the first to notice and promptly tweeted his reaction. Our resident cartoonist, Josh, noticed and replied: inspiring, now all bad weather can be blamed on @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/ZlKZj56mUS — Josh (@Cartoonsbyjosh) June 2, 2017

Monday Mirthiness: #Dilbert gets Mann-handled

Oh, the hilarity. In case you missed it, over the weekend the Dilbert Sunday Comic took on “climate science” in a hilarious way. I predicted the usual suspects would have the usual predictable responses, and so it goes with Dr. Michael Mann. Scott Adams, the creator of “Dilbert” has been active on Twitter over the…

Confidential: How to Hide the Pause

Guest essay by Iain Aitken Dear Colleagues – As President Trump hints at the withdrawal of our country from the Paris climate accord there has never been a greater threat to the Cause of saving our planet from catastrophic man-made global warming – so now, more than ever, we must be adroit in all dealings…

Friday Funny: The Peoples #ClimateMarch – Recycled Humor for a Sustainable Society

Cheesy Jokes for the April 29th March, recycled and improved By Sam Kazman, Competitive Enterprise Institute CEI doesn’t support recycling mandates, but there’s nothing wrong with voluntary recycling. And that’s what we’re doing here—recycling our March for Science jokes from last week for tomorrow’s People’s Climate March—with a few additions. –Why did the People’s Climate marchers…

Happy Earth Mirth Day

Today is Earth Day, and there will be assorted celebrations with “feelings” all over mother Gaia. Most notably is the March for (or against, depending on your viewpoint) Science. Josh has his take on it, using inspiration from the Red Team/Blue Team article.

The “March for Science”–No Laughing Matter? Says Who?

Some cheesy jokes about this Saturday’s March By Sam Kazman Back in February, Yale Computer Science Professor David Gelernter, who may become the next White House science advisor, had this to say about the upcoming March for Science and its organizers: “It’s like this is some sort of Looney Tunes thing. I must be trapped…

Friday Funny – The @sallykohn mega-climate madness edition

Sometimes, the best way to point out how climate alarmists have gone over the top, is to just let their own words speak for themselves. Such is the case of Sally Kohn, who bills herself as “America’s second favorite cable news lesbian.” and apparently, also a world renowned expert on weather, er, climate, or something.…

Monday Mirthiness – #GreenpeaceKnew

Last week, we carried the revelation that in a legal defamation case brought against GreenPeace by a forest products company (GreenPeace claimed they were “forest destroyers” among other things), that GreenPeace claimed their defense was “we publish hyperbole, therefore it isn’t actionable because it isn’t factual“. Given the spirit of such hyperbole, I came to the…

Friday Funny BONUS -Reality hits home for Dr. Mann

Ah Dr. Michael Mann, keeps giving us gifts. As Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. once quipped: If Michael Mann did not exist, the skeptics would have to invent him. Looks like doomsday from Dr. Mann’s perspective, according to his Twitter feed (from which I’m blocked h/t to Shub). Maybe Mike is just worried POTUS has more…

Friday Funny @Algore ‘Climate Reality Project’ – too stupid to know the difference between CO2 and water vapor

People send me stuff. Today I got a “please send money” solicitation from multi-millionaire climate crusader Al Gore, who reportedly has increased his net worth north of $200 million since losing his Presidential bid in 2000. You’d think with all that cash at his disposal, he could hire a proofreader before he starts making pitches…

Friday Funny – Madhouse Mann

Josh writes: Michael Mann has a book out called “The Madhouse Effect” with cartoons by Tom Toles, and which was the subject of a WUWT post back in April. It looks like it’s a summary of every alarmist strawman and lots of name calling of sceptics – well, I guess that’s all they got. Just in case…

‘Tiny the Turbine’ – a new story illustrated by Josh

Josh writes:  Apologies for the lack of cartoons this summer but I’ve been beavering away on a follow up to the Subisdy Sam story produced earlier in the year. Today we are launching ‘Tiny the Turbine’ written by Lyndsey Ward and illustrated by me.   Lyndsey writes: Tiny the Turbine is a story that really is for children.…
