After reading about the likely relaunch of “Patterns Recognition in Physics” on Jo Nova (which I thoroughly endorse) I was reminded that there is a glaring hole in the list of journals, which is stopping many good papers from getting published, not because they are not first class, but because there is a “Not Invented […]
According to a new translated Cuneiform tablet, Noah’s Ark was round. Reading the Daily Mail Comments I read : Cardiff supporter: Noah was a farmer who built a larger version of the locally used coracle. An earlier earth quake warned him that the natural dam holding back the Mediterranean would likely breach and flood the […]
There’s a post on Climate Etc. “Death of Expertise“. I’m not commenting on this directly. Instead, I have a very simple question: what is an expert? Two scales come to mind, the first is that in any given subject the probability that a person will be the source of the answer is greater than some […]
uClimate.com is proving a real boom. I came across this article at Scienceofdoom. I can’t remember which way they swing on the debate, but the article is well written and a subject I’m interested in. Available at: http://scienceofdoom.com/2014/01/23/ghosts-of-climates-past-thirteen-terminator-ii/ Ghosts of Climates Past – Thirteen – Terminator II January 23, 2014 by scienceofdoom In Eleven – End of […]

The url is: http://scef.org.uk/survey/index.php/868721/lang/en. Please help us by filling in the survey and passing onto all those who are interested in climate on line. […]
They say history is written by the winners. But the Citizen News Media are beginning to dominate the internet. If this new CNM end up writing the history of the “climate wars”, does mean we are the winners?
With the rise of the internet, the mainstream Media are in long term decline as Citizen Scientists using Citizen News Media begin to dominate those Universal subjects like climate. But were they given a helping hand by the antics of Wikipedian editors?
After a “And Then There’s Physics” article exchange about the “pause”, I got to thinking where I might find “the missing heat” – or as politicians would put it “the economy’s growing – it’s just we can’t see it”. In other words, I don’t hold much to hocus pocus science and post factum certainties that […]
Dear Jo, it is important you get this. But first, I was delighted to hear about the baby. So, I will try to keep this short knowing you will be busy with the most important of things and are unlikely to get around to doing anything about it soon. The drop in solar activity was […]
