Martin Bishop, who has a PhD in blogging from Delingpole University, said: "At least carbon dioxide has finally owned up. Hopefully David Attenborough will now have the decency to stop machine-gunning my children into a pit."

Ah, so that's where he is- and how's that for a research title?

University of Michigan says:

International Fellows and their study projects [include]:

Roger Harrabin, environmental analyst, BBC (London); Scarcity: How many rich people can the Earth take?

@Richard Betts

"HadCM2 is a very old model - it was developed in about 1994 IIRC

The issue with the treatment of sulphate aerosol was that there was no simulation of aerosols in the atmosphere - the effect had to be approximated by modifying the surface albedo.

HadCM3 and all our models since then have simulated aerosols in the atmosphere. We are now on the 3rd new model after HadCM2 - HadCM2 hasn't been seriously used for over a decade, and wasn't used for AR4."

Thanks for reply, Richard. Just to clarify, the email in which Ian Harris referred to this model as "shit" dates from 2001, and it seems to have been used in TAR.

On the 24th Nov the Met Office forecasts Nov will be warm.

You may therefore be entirely reassured that no computer models were harmed (or even used) in the making of this hindcast...

Here is a little bit more clarification:


Bob Watson was kicked out of the IPCC Chairperson position by the planet (well, 61% of votes from 125 countries) only to be replaced by Dr. Rajendra Pachauri.
