Climategate 3, the goon squad and going nuclear.


One of the climate establishment’s new coping mechanisms in handling what is effectively the third release of the climategate emails, is to put pressure on the people who were sent the decryption key, rather than looking for the identity of the leaker. The leaker goes by the name FOIA and the establishment in this case are the … Continue reading

Climategate 3. FOIA’s accompanying email.


Since I put up the email from FOIA that accompanied the second climategate release here, I thought I might as well be consistent and put up the email that accompanied the third. It makes for interesting reading, if only as a basis for some intriguing speculation.

La, la, la. I can’t hear you, I’m not listening.

It’s not somewhere you ever wanted or intended to be, but it is what it is. That’s where you are. Everyone … Continue reading

A species facing extinction.

In general terms, it happens because there has been a change in … Continue reading

Sleeping with the enemy.


Carbon is the Great Satan of the environmental movement. They all worry about their carbon footprint, want to impose carbon taxes on it and even have schemes to capture the poor thing and imprison it down holes in the ground. Oh the humanity. For such a supposedly caring bunch, they can be so cruel at times. … Continue reading
