Kaye sera sera

I was on the Kaye Adams show this morning, talking about Paris and what one can do about one's personal carbon footprint. Also featured was BH favourite Louise Gray, although we didn't get a chance to interact.

We touched on energy, recycling, the global warming movement and green gestures although I'm not sure Ms Adams realised I was a "bad person" until rather late in the day. It was great fun.

Audio should be available here this afternoon (climate segment was from the top of the show, with me on after about half an hour).

I'm not sure if The Dork of Cork and Aila are bots sent to disrupt and disparage this blog. But I can still see a difference between the two.

Aila provides a novel approach to the climate debate. She responds emotionally with subtle language in order to stimulate discussion. If she is a bot she is very useful one as she disrupts the echo chamber.

The Dork of Cork is a puzzle box with nothing inside.

I assumed Aila was being ironical - maybe wrongly, but why not give the benefit of the doubt?

The Cork Dork is rarely easy to understand, but his meaning is not usually beyond all conjecture. And he's civil. The only ban I would consider supporting is on calls to ban people.

It might be worth noting that ATTP accuses the host of referring to “a bunch of conspiracies”. That is plural. Let us hope Santa brings aTTP an abacus as well as a dictionary this year.
Have you thought about this academics pseudonym - “...and Then There's Physics”? Unsubstantiated comments, along with repeating the opinions of others and distracting people from that underlying data (found on his own blog), are far removed from the current physics A level syllabus. But maybe a science PhD involves something completely different and far less rigorous.

Kevin: Re ATTP. Every time I see his moniker appearing on the blog I can't get out of my head the onlooker's call when the the mad Muslim guy went berserk in the tube station - except, all I hear is: "You ain't no fissicist bruv."

If only aTTP would talk about physics, but he only seems to know about model outputs.

Paris, Murphy and Krugman:

Well done, Sorry, I tried to listen but found the fantasy too unreal. How can anyone seriously think that current targets will limit temp rises to 2.7C, then discuss the decremental minutiae involved with each of the 5 year plans that reduce this to 2.0 then 1.5. Do these eejits seriously think they can control the climate with this level of detail?

Roy Spenser has summed it all up nicely here.

Your Excellency, I don't think that Kaye Adams was ever aware that your advice was not coming from the heart of the Green Blob, and that it was excellent advice as far at the place of renewable energy in the World is concerned. Your advice had the qualities of pure Highland Water.
