Vaclav Klaus video

This is the video of Vaclav Klaus's GWPF lecture last week.

Somebody should let them know, when recording a speech in a room like that with lots of reflective surfaces, they should record the audio directly from the PA system mixer (a laptop with a line in socket makes a good recording device) and then add it to the video afterwards, to avoid the "I'm giving a speech in the bathroom" effect, which can't be removed in software and which makes the speech hard to listen to.

Global temperatures plummet. We could be in for a very cold winter.

A grave reminder of the real threat to our freedom he describes so eloquently, is the disgraceful media silence which has greeted his visit to the UK. An outstanding and courageous orator.

Vaclav Klaus critices the researchers failing to deliver understandable messages.

The researchers - in general - deliver scientific reports without interpretation ( asides from those seeking their next grant ). The interpretation we see is at a meta level where people aggregate research and provide interpretations. In its worst case it is the IPCC who take honest research and apply political spin in interpreting and reporting such.

Can you put the audio in a format that I can play on iPad please?

Keep up the good work, bish.

We could be in for a very cold winter.

Interesting charts on the website. We are having a wet winter so far in California, as well as coming off a fairly cool summer. For the last 10 years it has been dry and warmer than "normal". Perhaps all the wind farms and compact florescent lights have turned the climate. Right.

What that chart says is that the Oceans are going through yet another cycle of current shifting. Thanks for pointing it out. Like you, it is about the ONLY data I have any faith in, assuming that it wasn't "corrected" by Hansen or Mann, or one of those people.

anyone know what paper mr klaus is refering to r/e 'random walk model'? i cant see how a random model fits real data.
good talk tho.

It may be this, but it's totally beyond me. He's an economist, they seem to be familiar with random walk modelling.

A good explanation of Random Walk Theory:

If one looks at the illustrative graph that typifies a random walk distribution over time, one can see why the infamous "hockey stick" had to be straightened then bent upwards by retro manipulation of the data input. The proof of said manipulation was that even random data fed into Mann's model yielded the same alarming curve - Prima facie evidence of scientific fraud.

Best email Steve Jobs and ask him to start making products that are compatible with the rest of the world...?

Thanks for that SB, hilarious and given its time very prescient.

If you can play MP3-format audio, try this.
