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

It is to be noted that the task for students, involving Excel, would be beyong the capabilities of one of the world's "top climate scientist" - no names mentioned. It seems a bit of a noddy project for 3rd/4th year students, even if they are not highly numerate. What subjects do the students study to get on the course? I hope all the students commented on the use of "corrected" data.

Northern hemisphere temperatures and a finite number of 'monkeys

Rob Wilson calls his students Monkeys? As a dendroclimatologist I would have thought he spent more time living in trees than they did.
He offers 5 papers for his students to read, 4 include Phil Jones as an author and the other Jim Hansen, just coincidence I suppose.
Rob asks his students to pick 5, FIVE? stations and produce a time series?
Keep the comments closed.

Northern hemisphere temperatures and a finite number of 'monkeys'

I will therefore be enforcing a fairly strict moderation policy

That strict that comments are turned off?

On Rob Wilson's guest post, you write: "I will therefore be enforcing a fairly strict moderation policy."

This is followed by the words "Comments off".

That really is strict.

On Biased BBC I came across a link to this site which looks pretty sensible.

Didn't sleep well. Woke up today (Saturday) to Farming today, where I heard Sarah Gurr, Professor of Molecular Plant Pathology at Oxford University claim that Ash die-back may well be exacerbated by Climate Change and that it would need to be studied (That'll make sure of a grant then). Furthermore, she was extremely worried that with the death of all these trees the UK would lose a large portion of its Carbon Sink which will just make matters worse. (Went back to sleep!!!)

We do not want any more onshore wind turbines/farms in Norfolk or elsewhere in the UK.

See what your children's teachers are expected to tell them about the changing climate.

I've just been watching Sky News.

Sky News Reporter Adam Boulton was interviewing a Democrat and a Republican about the presidential election.

There was a reference to the Climate Change position of both Romney and Obamam and much to my surprise, Boulton used the word "denier" when referring to Climate Change realists.
