I don’t often have open threads as there is quite a lot of slippage in threads on my blog due to very open moderation policy. There are a number of issues around the climate blogosphere:
I note that McIntyre is bashing on about the UAE and the statute of limitations. WUWT is on about a visual discrepancy in ice extent. On that line of discussion — sea ice — Tamino has a post up about Watts and sea ice extent that is worth reading, Judith Curry has a post up about an “extended peer community” to which I say BALDERDASH! I am not Gavin Schmidt’s peer nor Michael Mann’s peer nor a peer of Jones, nor Bradley nor Briffa nor any of the climate scientists who do the actual science and I challenge most of the rest of us who are not working scientists in the climate field and who do not have a science graduate education to claim they are their peers. To claim that a bunch of bloggers with little or no science background are “science peers” is hubris! You already know my view of Post-Normal Science — I call it “Pseudo-Sort of Science… and apologies to Willard, but I don’t much truck nor trade with the post-normal post-modern crowd. DC has more interesting info up on the WR, and this time, about red noise, which according to McI and Wegman, the de-centred PCA mines for. Eli has a post up about Wegman, providing bunnies who are too lazy to read the Mashey Report a primer or “Dummies Guide”. Keith Kloor at Collide-a-Scape has a post up about denial and the abolition analogy that has garnered some attention.
Have at it. I’ll discuss pretty much anything related.
