You get what you pay for - Josh 230


Apparently Dana Nuccitelli works for the fossil fuel industry, see here and here, so I thought a cartoon of him at work would be helpful. If you want to get the slightly obscure but apposite references to Drillbit then Google is your friend ;-)

Josh I dont know how you manage to respond so quickly, what with the everyday stuff we all do - brilliant.

Drillbit as in Owen Wilson, a low budget bodyguard? Perfect.

Nail on head again - wonderful!

Drillbit - and there was I thinking about Dilbert ...

'However, the amount of warming caused by human greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is known to a high degree of certainty, and these same studies have all found that GHGs are responsible for over 100% of the observed warming over this timeframe' (the past half century). Dana Nuccitelli Sep 19, 2012

Over 100%? Wow.

Excellent ... nice one Josh :-)

If past experience is anything to go by, we can shortly expect to see a Dana-positive cartoon from J Cook & Co at Cartoon Central, debunkling your cartoon.

The warmist mentaility in a nutshell ...

"debunkling" ??? Sorry, Freudian debunk.

Delingpole has an article on this. I must commend him on the use of "coulroterpsichorean". It's a word that sadly has almost dropped out of the English language.

Alternatives: Dana Jekyll and Dana Hyde; a Janus head in the same trend.

Thank you. I did use Google. I think I must have grown out of American culture before I was born.

It matters nothing that Nutty is tainted with oil money, what does matter is why Nutty's friends keep on going on about Big Oil funding Sceptics.

"why Nutty's friends keep on going on about Big Oil funding Sceptics"

Because they've got precious little else to hit with..?

It is rather fun to see Nutty's reactions, though - he seems genuinely surprised!

Is that a wee scooter I see?

He's just dragged up Marcott's non-robust stick in defense of the cause.

This graph shows that even at the lowest range of climate sensitivity, future global warming will take us well beyond any temperature experienced during civilized human history.

Appropriate that right after it he says "Now, on to the science." - because that sure wasn't science.

Running Nuccitelli through the Urban Dictionary comes up with an amusing definition, and it should be noted that the definition entry date long precedes said individuals public place in the blogosphere...

^ an efficient use of one's limited resources?

Nuccitelli is pretty upset by all of this, and is now threatening to block anyone on Twitter who refers to him as being employed by big oil/fossil fuel.

Just posted on WUWT: Dana signed up at the IOP’s Vision Prize as

Dana Nuccitelli
Tetra Tech, Inc.; (United States); Other scientific or technical – commercial; Environmental Science, Physics; Industry – Environmental Services; climate science

Three possibilities:

1. He’s as sloppy as it gets regarding online profiles

2. He’s paid by Tetra Tech to work about climate change – this would explain his prodigious online output in the field, including the running of SkS and the Guardian’s enviropages

3. He’s abused his day job to get himself a place in the “nonpartisan” Vision Prize
