Expanding head

Several people have written nice things about me recently. One article called me "heroic", which was very kind but perhaps excessive praise for the writing of a blog post.

James Delingpole is kind enough to refer to me as "the great Bishop Hill" which again is very flattering, but unfortunately is about a guest post written by Andrew K. I'd tell James myself, but I've never managed to get a confirmation email out of the Telegraph website so I can't post there. No doubt word will filter through.

Mr. Montford,

I along with many others consider you "the great Bishop Hill". With all the millions of Web sites we could go to, we come here for a reason. There is no other site that says what you say, the way you say it.

Our only concern is (whisper who dares), will you be going over to Rome any time soon...?

Mind you, I don't think Rome takes global warming too seriously. They'd have to ban incense....

Yes, but what kind of bishop are you? Are you this kind:

Just in case there are some people out there who haven’t seen it yet, here’s a Youtube video of the sceptics’ new anthem, Hide the Decline, featuring an energetic performance by Michael Mann (with guest appearance by the hockey stick).

Have you seen this?
Climate records in New Zealand discredited, appear to have been falsified.
How did they find out? The raw data was available.
Oh, and somebody heavily involved in it appears to have migrated there from CRU. (see linked pdf)

A little inflation in the head department on your part, Mr M, is perfectly justifiable under the circumstances. Keep up the great work.

I've ordered a copy of the book, too, by the way. It's just the kind of Christmas gift I know my brother, who is a long-suffering meteorologist and climate change doubter, will appreciate.

Yes, I've had exactly the same problem with the Telegraph blogs. Three times now I think.

Still, plaudits to Delingpole - it was where I first read about this scandal and at a time when the rest of the MSM were busy ignoring or slighting the story.

(The Telegraph's Geoffrey Lean is a bit of a "useful idiot" though, going on about how "impartial statistics" show there's been continued warming over the last 10 years. So I just posted him Dr Jones's mail about how he can't possibly say there has been global cooling even though there has... )

Bishop - I also had the same problem signing up to the Telegraph blogs. I signed on and it just disappeared into the ether - no confirmation email, nothing, After hunting down their very elusive email address and informing them, they replied (several days later) saying they could find no problem and no one else had raised the issue anyway.

The 'trick' (aha!) I eventually found is to grab a web-mail address (Yahoo! etc) and to sign up using that. Once done, you're through. Hope this helps.

Thanks Peter, that is very helpful.

My Lord BIshop,
No wonder you're bigheaded if people insist on addressing a mere bishop as "Your Grace".

Nov 26, 2009 at 7:24 AM | Unregistered Commenterdearieme

Not much to add, but just keep up the excellent work, Bishop - your blog is one of the websites currently running rings around the mainstream media where this issue is concerned. I find it difficult to avoid the feeling that the FOI2009 affair will prove to be a defining moment in the history of climate science, and that this is something that the mainstream news outlets have been finding very hard to respond to and come to grips with. Well done!

My Lord BIshop,

Well, as far as I can tell "My Lord" is the correct form.

However, since His Lordship (or His Grace) is a self-confessed fake-bishop, then perhaps

"Your Fake Grace" or "My Fake Lord" would work.

However, I get the feeling that, whether Bishop Hill is a real bishop or not, he certainly is not a "fake".

So, "Your Grace" gets my vote.

"One article called me "heroic", which was very kind but perhaps excessive praise for the writing of a blog post."

In case you're referring to my blog post over at, it is the whole of your work here that makes you, in my opinion, heroic: not just a single post.

Lilburne - you are too kind.
