A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

BoFA, that's not a new one. The meme is that GW / CC / CD / whatever they're calling it this week will lead to pressure on resources which will lead to disorder and terrorism. No evidence of anything happening so naturally no evidence of any link but when did that ever slow them down?

Ross Lea / Richard Drake - it's no sour grapes that what I feel important doesn't get a decent airing - the Dimbleby franchise on QT / AQ is characterised as reprocessed Gardener's Question Time - like an old pair of slippers - comfortable and warm and no bits of gravel or discomfort and in the case of AQ simply boggling stuff on "Any Answers". I don't know if it's still the case - but what you see / hear is an edit. Heaven forbid anybody's seen to get angry or humiliated...

Back last century (88) a QT in Bristol was so edited that two people I know well who went wondered to me if they'd actually been at the same event. A sedative before bed or before a Saturday afternoon snooze. We deserve better - and some people are certainly paying for it - really....

Now if Andrew Neil alternated with DD that'd be interesting.

Meanwhile the overt disinformation and smug sneering and trite punning drivel continues unabated

The Gravesend weather station is situated inside the compound of the Broadreach radar site, close to the air conditioning outlets!
It does not comply with the Met offices criteria for siting a weather station on numerous counts and could probably be used as an example of how not to.

Words fail me

Just when you thought you'd heard of all the perils that global warming could bring, here's another being put forward. A new report – which comes as the world's governments meet in Copenhagen to finalise the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – says it could give rise to terrorist groups like Nigeria's Boko Haram.

TBYiJ, I don't don't know if it's the same station, but Tim Channon at Tallbloke's has often commented on Gravesend stations running unusually hot in a hot part of the country.


And the previous record for this day was reported at the Beeb as being 1968. To which my response would be "Big Deal. So what? The world has probably warmed slightly since 1968." They can keep up the statistical dredging almost indefinitely. If Christmas Day isn't a record this year, then they will be able to go and search if it is the warmest Christmas that fell on a Thursday. And so on...

If anyone is interested this is an integrity of science story : A well paid cancer researcher at Wayne State was caught faking data in 2012 to help get a big research grant, now 2014 he's trying to sue the entire world ...

The person in the article and his people fraudulently manipulated a small group of pictures to claim a large number of experimental results. There were actually only a small number of real results - insufficient for proving what they claimed.

BBC ejaculates: warmest Halloween on record.

Ross Lea: Thanks very much for the report. I watched it all more than an hour later than broadcast, on the iPlayer, in the end. I agree with your frustration but I'm not sure it was rigged - the drugs question took up a lot of time and is important in its own right. David Dimbleby has recently done a lecture at Oxford - The Future of the Political Interview - in which I learned some important stuff about the place of Question Time, the only news/interview show where the youth audience is growing. I really recommend taking that in. (The respect for Andrew Neil is one key marker of where DD stands.) But on this occasion I agree they missed a major opportunity.

I've sent them a copy of the IPCC certificate [Mann's] and asked them to find 'co-recipient' on there. And a copy of the IPCC's instructions to contributors [see fourth paragraph].

I await their response.
