Brilliant, simply brilliant Josh.

Set me up for the weekend, that has. Thanks, Josh.

'Its just the heat that's missing..'

Oh, come now, everyone knows that its dived to the bottom of the oceans - and will burst to the surface when the 'pause' is over...

Agree with Pointman and Mike. Brilliant.

Sep 12, 2014 at 3:19 PM | Registered CommenterPhillip Bratby

Awesome. Everything about Global Warming Theory is true... except for the heat. lol

One picture is worth more than a thousand words!

Spectacular. Says it all.

I've just posted at WUWT. See if you can find the Ghost of Climate Past - sitting at Mann's left elbow. Magic! (as in, cross eyes, etc...)

Another classic Josh

How about a group of alarmists at a wine tasting. One of the wines could be based on the Greenland grape varitiy.

Your best yet, still laughing.

Absolutely supercalifragilistically (sp?!) brilliant, Josh!

And if you're considering a sequel ... how about IPCC's WGII Co-Chair Chris Field* and WMO's Michel <There. Is. No. Pause> Jarraud desperately trying to take the box away from him;-)

Brilliant Josh, as always.

In retaliation Lewandowsky has placed the following on YouTube:

And all because the climatologists love their grants...

I want it on a poster and on a t-shirt and on a mug and on a baseball cap and a tattoo and postcard and........

Excellent! I hope Mark Steyn sees it...

I love the 'hint of natural pine' :-)

Josh, sometime you're good, sometimes you're really good and some times you're really, really baaaaaad :-D

Perhaps Anthony can send this on a Christmas card to Mikey with a very special box of chocs. Big oil funded of course LOL.

Sep 12, 2014 at 10:08 PM | Unregistered CommenterTinyCO2

These aren’t just chocs, these are climate science chocs.

What flavours would there be?

Ess-oh-tu - Straight from the orient this mix of finest sulphur with a double helping of creamy oxygen wrapt in a smoky shell.

Nox – a flavour to make your mouth water if not your eyes.

Volcano – this little cone is packed full of hot gooey stuff that will liven up the dullest of parties.

Cherry Pix – we’d select the best and discard the rest to ensure that you feel the heat.

En S’eau – This naughty little choc comes in hot and cold flavours but watch out, it has a nasty habit of repeating on you.

La Ninas and El Ninos – right next to En S’eau in the box, these tasty treats make things really unpredictable. Caution, may cause wind.

Missing Heat – Sorry, this is one confectionary we haven’t found yet but we’ve left a space in the box for when we do (disclaimer – we offer no compensation for the shortfall but assure customers it will be in the next selection you purchase… or the next (disclaimer – this assurance should not be considered a binding contract or guarantee)).

Aerosols *– these butt hole shaped candies are a firm favourite with the climate scientist in your life. There’s no occasion where they won’t be welcome. But be careful, take too many and your arguments begin to stink.

* nb this joke is a tribute to a Not the 9 O'clock News sketch about a Swedish Chemist and a man trying to buy a deodorant.

Tiny CO2

You forgot

The Nut Cluster-F***:- A crunchy delectable delight inspired by a selection of climate-gate e-mail authors that will leave you wanting more.


The Creamy Salty Swirl:- Made with CO2 enriched ocean water that will cleanse your palate

Put me down for a few boxes. At 70kg with my eyebrows plucked and an umbrella up, this Grant could do with a bit of fattening.

For the biblically minded:

Manna flavour; a heavenly blend of hubris, nemisis and sheer bad-temperedness.

Sep 13, 2014 at 6:47 AM | Unregistered Commenterturnedoutnice

Thanks, good suggestions for the Climate Christmas box of treats :-)

A few more from me.

Chocolate Covered Ocean Currents – Sweet, chewy and a small handful count as one of your five a day but don’t ask these are put together because frankly, we haven’t a clue. They come in assorted flavours.

Dark Chocolate Faster Currents – These spread heat to the parts that other currents can’t reach but too much of a good thing can give you a hot flush up the Arctic.

White Chocolate Slower Currents – Unlike most currents these won’t give you the runs. Actually if you have too much you’ll get bunged up and suffer from compacted ice bergs. (nb If you do suffer from bergs, be aware you may be a danger to shipping when you do let go and nobody will like you if you float a titanic berg in a public place.)

Hadley Nut Centre - This is exactly like it sounds but may leave a bitter after taste.

Homogenous Temperature Mix – We take good sweets and bad sweets and mix them together to create an unsatisfying final product.

Sep 13, 2014 at 7:56 AM | Unregistered CommenterTinyCO2

Foil Wrapped Deniers –These chocolate coins, based on ancient Greek money are handed out to sceptics whether they want them or not. Despite their name, they're actually very nice but most climate scientists are allergic to them.

I wish I could draw, but I can't so I thought I'd try a poem:

The Climate's Lament

As I was warming surface air
I met a pause that wasn't there
It wasn't there again today
I wish that pause would go away.

I'll get my coat........

Sep 13, 2014 at 12:34 PM | Unregistered CommenterRoger Longstaff

Oh, you lot - your talents are wasted.... WASTED, I tell you...

Sep 13, 2014 at 2:03 PM | Unregistered Commentersherlock1

Mitty Mann eats chocolates
His tortured mind to calm
Amongst the sweets are many treats
To provide him with some balm

The models got the heating wrong
The hockey blade has drooped
The egg-sploshed faces bear the traces
Of zealots who have pooped.

But stuff themselves they have and will
Stuff themselves some more
From moneyed quants and federal grants
Treading science in the floor

One day the mud will slide away
They are not what they seem
Confections hiding misdirections
The grossness of 'the team'.

Another corker Josh!

Is there a Slimers boxed choice available?


Sep 13, 2014 at 8:35 PM | Unregistered CommenterPeter Walsh



Meant a "Slimmers" choice available?

Silly me!!!


Sep 13, 2014 at 8:38 PM | Unregistered CommenterPeter Walsh

The term "Pause" implies that after a period of time it will end. What proof do we have that this is true? Perhaps we should use such words as "stop" etc. instead.

Sep 13, 2014 at 10:54 PM | Unregistered CommenterFred 2

I wonder when Josh will receive a writ from Mann accusing him of libel and destroying his reputation?

Sep 14, 2014 at 1:35 AM | Registered Commenterdavidchappell

Rather than 'pause' or the highfallutin 'hiatus' I use the term 'cessation'. It is correct for now and presumes nothing as to the future.

Sep 14, 2014 at 1:21 PM | Unregistered CommenterJoseph Sydney

Dame Julia Slingo, (for 'twas she) in her lecture at the Institute of Physics (London, UK — just) last week, vampishly 'informed' us that there was no real pause anyway because European summers had been getting warmer — so there!

Well, I know the EU pretends to be a 'global power' (has anyone noticed?), but claiming the only climate that matters is that over Europe is perhaps a tad rich?
