Josh, if you want some tree-huggers to go with it, I can give you a short-list of names:)

Bish,

OT -- Matt Ridley has a takedown on his blog Re: the Cornell "study" that goes after shale gas (and the BBC coverage). Might be worth a post.

And the author of the study has a priceless defense --
Howarth, however, defended his work as meeting strict academic and scientific standards. "It's being published in a highly respected journal and has been rigorously peer-reviewed," a report from Reuters quoted Howarth as saying. "This is not advocacy. This is science."

Fantastic! I am imaging a guilty (but relieved) reindeer shuffling away on the other side of the hill. (h/t Tom Wigley)

Super. Is that Mr Angry Person at the top of the treee, or is it my vivid imagination?

I know it wasn't Yamal (obviously) but was there ever a better name for a dendro series than the one taken from Twisted Tree; Heartrot Hill?

Perhaps an alternative title for those allergic to puns?

Well done Amoorhouse, I wish I had thought of the line, it is such a great one.

Happy to print some T-shirts for any who want them, just send an email [ josh at cartoonsbyjosh.com ]. Anthony is doing some for US tree huggers ;-)

Josh started well and just keeps getting better.

About tree huggers, if I knew the author of this I would give attribution. It just floated through on the Net.

Should we have a secret handshake too?

Geoff Sherrington - that is the funniest thing I've read all year. As a biker myself, perhaps it had particular resonance.

The guy from the organising committee is priceless. He sure knows how to spin a line with his tongue planted in his cheek: "You know, just because we are all members of motorcycle clubs does not mean we do not care about inclusiveness."

Gotta go. Just wet myself.

What do we want? A T Shirt!
When do we want it? NOW!!

Apr 15, 2011 at 7:57 AM | Unregistered CommenterGrumpy Old Man

That is so funny. And so very clever. Great work!

I was so jealous when I saw this at Watts Up that I just had to do something.

Gosh. Some fame! I thought my joke at WUWT hadnt actually posted correctly as I couldn't trace it once posted.

Calibration with inaccurate instruments leads to Cauchy-distributed errors. Then averaging won't help at all and one has to select one 'median-tree' to represent global temperatures. That must be YAD06.

Amoorhouse! It's a gem, thank you so much! Let me know where to send a free T shirt or something.
