Cartoons by Josh Calendar 2018

The best way to remember how entertaining (or horrifying) climate science, energy policy etc, was in 2017 is to buy a Cartoons by Josh Calendar.

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 and posting costs by nearly half to £10 (+P&P) per calendar - which means less fossil fuel money and every calendar saving the planet just a little bit more!


The calendar is now printed and pre-orders posted. You can order one here

Preordered two!

One will, as usual, proudly adorn my living room wall ... the other will be gracefully donated to the city's Sustainability Desk :D

Will calendars be available through WUWT?

Nov 1, 2017 at 2:12 AM | Unregistered CommenterATheoK

I will do a post on WUWT today - calendars will be sent out from the UK this year.

I don't like Calendars, they remind me of time. I don't like time.
How about a book instead? The Complete Works of Josh, Vol. I.

With Illustrations by Ronald Searle, for truly, this is the St Trinian's Infirmary of the Hockey Wars

Heh Foam-man, don't you know the Hockey Wars are over; the sticksters overwhelmingly defeated on multiple fronts. Only a few diehards remain, hiding out like lost and isolated Japanese soldiers remaining on isolated islands.

So, so interesting - your need to quote from your own blog to make your point. Boring!

Those who can , blog.

"Those who can , blog.

So very, very true, and so unlike you to be so self critical.

You might consider adopting your wise aphorism for your own inestimable site - it could do with a little humour (oh,sorry: humor).

Climate change policy is horribly.
predictable if you realize the goal is to raise prices higher then net income.
Listen to a economic/banking propogandist such as Francis Cuppola in her latest Forbes article.
Inflation is caused by everthing but monopoly in her HSBC skewed philosophy.
Inflation /energy consumption dynamics and its impact on humans (rationing) is obvious to a child.

Bernard Connelly has been very quiet this year ,now that the UK is collapsing we can see his critique of euroland was correct but limited given his monetarist philosophy.
The UK is unwilling or incapable of dealing with its post enclosure baggage &glorious revolution monopolies - the subsequent price pressure on now limited income is causing a final implosion of its society making "independence" a impossibly.
It needed a fiat King with the balls to tell the banks go and have intercourse with themselves - sadly you only have the Winsors and a parliamentary oligarchy.
Cue total national destruction.....

The Irish 2016 energy balance published recently vommits out predictable figures
All~ of Corrib gas field production went into electricity transformation , home formation rationing is reflected in the continued small % of gas used for heating&cooking.

There is a continued absence of electric car energy consumption figures from the balance despite the tiny irish electric rail sector registering.
I am sure the 3000~ elec cars is beginning to overpower Dublins Luas & Dart but perhaps I am wrong.
Mick has discovered free energy and is keeping it a secret.........

Nov 10, 2017 at 11:17 AM | Unregistered CommenterThe Dork of Cork

Gas consumption in Ireland during Corrib field switch on (2016)

Electricity transformation sector
Y2015 : 1943ktoe
Y2016 : 2388ktoe

residential sector
Y2015 : 555ktoe
Y2016 : 563ktoe

So the jump of gas consumption in the transformative sector was nearly the size of the entire residential sector !!!!!! and yet they bombard people with rationing propaganda
All that sacrifice of real consumption ( lagging the attic instead of drinking in the pub) was lost in a single year by the corporate sector

You might think after this huge rise of inputs in the elec transformation sector residential elec consumption would also explode - it declined slightly by 1kb.....

And those with an unsaleable, low quality, imitation-product try to pass it off as being the same as the real thing.

You still just don't get it do you? Having a website which is clearly named to deceive the ignorant or unobservant that it is the same as wattsupwiththat only marks you out as an A-hole. Not as someone super-smart, as you might like to think. Nor as somebody that has anything original or important to say. It merely marks you out as a person willing to commit I.P. theft as a way of getting more publicity. If Anthony Watts wished to behave like most commercial websites do, he would already have your ass in front of a judge in a court of law. It is time to get over your self.

Sad to see Euan Mearns latest piece where he seeks to get under & inside UK GDP figures.

He falls at the first hurdle by not understanding what GDP is : its total prices in the economy and is certainly not productivity (wasted productivity perhaps)
Inflation targeting by central banks & government policy (migration movement , industrial sabotage etc) and GDP targeting is the same thing.
He also falls for the auld Labour theory of value nonsense in this machine age.
What matters to real people is rises of net income per capita , the only mechanism to achieve this is a collapse of GDP , a collapse of pointless for most activity.

Given his philosophical mistake he & others suggests rationing old people so as to feed the dragon of economic growth.
Simple connections are not made - namely what is the purpose of economic growth if you must ration to achieve it.
We now can more easily understand the schism between the medieval view of production (its purpose was consumption) and the modernist purpose of production ( expansion)

Mars can never become the new America , capitalist logic requires death as expulsion is no longer a option given we live on a sphere.

Once you get this you realize a conservative can never be a capitalist.
Not even Peter Hitchens is a conservative as he only wants to turn the clock back to the glorious revolution.
Obviously revolution & conservatism are polar opposites.

Wow - its been quite a journey grasping this but it is no defense from the snake eating its tail

You're wasting your time here Duke*. This place ""is no more", "has ceased to be", is "bereft of life", and "it rests in peace". It is a Norwegian Blue of a blog.
* to tell you the truth, you were before.

Just bought one!
Looking forward to hanging up at work.
Should cause apoplexy.

Now I understand why Bishop Hill is still here.

It has become a vehicle for Josh to make money from climate change denial

Lieutenant Joshi,

In accordance with the Imperial command, the Fourteenth Area Army has ceased all combat activity.
In accordance with military Headquarters Command No. A-2003, the Special Squadron of Staff's Headquarters is relieved of all military duties.
Units and individuals under the command of Special Squadron are to cease military activities and operations immediately and place themselves under the command of the nearest superior officer. When no officer can be found, they are to communicate with the American or Philippine forces and follow their directives.

Greetings Bish, hope you are well and picking up comments.

I'm just celebrating "Electricity Hour" - all lights on and shining brightly :-)

Must admit that it was hard to believe in this. I think that it will attract more visitors. I wish you the best of everything.

Happy new year to anyone of the Jewish faith.

Just an early heads-up. Next year will be the 10th anniversary of Climategate. Plan your celebration now! And I am finally ready Our Host's book, "Hiding the Decline" - a very worthwhile compendium of the aftermath of Climategate, especially the well documented history of the fraudlent "inquiries".

Happy Anniversary - one year since the last post to this site!

Ten years, eh?
Seems a bit long to wait. Maybe another ten years will do it?

I like how you speak your mind. Some authors look through the window, Others break the windows and take the wheel.

I know you posted this quite a long time ago, but I wanted you to know that this is exactly what I was just looking for.
It's perfect. I thought I was going to have to carve little holes in my cigar boxes,
and then I saw your idea of using plastic canvas Nz
I have a lot of leftover plastic canvas from when my mother used to do needlepoint tissue box covers.
So, cheap and easy! Thanks!
