Gav calls it - Josh 320

Following the correct use of a certain word on Twitter my guess is that Gavin Schmidt will go for a name change for his blog 'Realclimate'. Go for it, Gav.

Are you sure this is right?
I much prefer Frankie Boyle's recent tweet in reply to Richard Branson which, in the circumstances,would seem very appropriate here also.

Nice one Josh :-)

And while I'm here ...

Good ol' Gav could improve his output by heeding the words of Freeman Dyson, who recently gave an excellent interview to the Vancouver Sun:

Conversations that matter - Earth is actually growing greener

This explains crap circle investigators long interest in Josh's work'

"A Piece of Schmidt"?
I expect he's heard that one before (and with a surname like mine I can empathise, but not sympathise).

I was watching Mulan with my grandchildren last week and this image reminded me of someone, but not sure if it was Schmidt or Mann....

@ Seitz.

That comment makes ZERO sense! Can I please have some of whatever it is you're on?

JerryM, I think Russell deserves credit for likening Real Climate to Real Crop Circles, and his association with the link should not be forgotten.

Russell Seitz compares Real Climate to Real Crop Circle Investigatiors. In bold, capitals, and underlined, it would look good too.

Out of a sense of decency, and to satisfy Twitter, it is respectful to take the 'CRAP' out of 'Real Climate'. It is after all, what 'Real Climate' has being doing to science, and other inhabitants of the Planet for years.

If it had not been for Russell Seitz's analytical observation, no one else could possibly have made the link, in Josh's humour.

That is a name much more meaningful for Gavin Schnidt's work!

No one can question the crapulence of Golf Charlie's remarks

It's to another idiom I fix upon and it reflects the character of the principal protagonists and their parts.

RC, all ever so preciously dressed up as "real", a rather unsubtle nuance of unassailable 'science' but always falls flat with its incessant weaving of fallacious proposition, mingling half baked appeals based on nothing more than statistically engineered slant and arrogant with its utterly coarse and contumely behaviours, truly it has been much deserved an altogether justifiable and black contempt.

I think of a derivation, of an old Norse term and noun in the plural but commencing with the same consonant.

Russell = ZDB? Certainly reads that way in the tone of the comments.

Gosh Russell, you are a wag.

Has Gavin evacuated the NASA GISS offices on the West-side of Manhattan yet? I was last in my home town of New York City back in 2011, I shudder to think of all that NASA GISS/NCAR sea level rise and the fate of all those tragic climate refugees.

Anyone know of Gavin's apocalypse?
