Feedback on the work of McIntyre and McKitrick

CTV News

The 6 pm promo for the 11pm CTV news (a Canadian national network) featured – guess who. You’ll recognize some graphics. The 11pm news is online here (only up to yesterday at present – I’m not sure whether they stream it at 11 pm or whether it’s just an archive.) I’m on at the very […]


Well, welcome back. The operating problems have resulted either from an increase in volume, or a DOS attack or both. Any time that we’ve tried to open up the site, the site has been knocked over. This has been true even on the weekend. Even after the climateaudit IP address was pointed away from the […]

Suspicious Weather Stations

Sweden has been reporting warmth in June that is unprecedented in a milllll-yun years 👿 Pictures from Sweden’s newspapers show the extent to which continental glaciation has receded.

It demonstrates that if you’re going to do serious […]

New Scientist, Juckes and Rob Wilson

Here’s something amusing in the New Scientist article, which includes a defence of the Stick. Their jpg is compiled by one Robert Wilson of the University of Edinburgh, who includes the reconstruction from Juckes 2006. Has Juckes been accepted or doesn’t this matter any more?

Yesterday I mentioned that we had been invited to make a post at the Nature blog. The invitation was withdrawn today. On May 10, we received the following invitation: As you know, there was a recent post on our Climate Feedback blog by Hans Von Storch that discussed the hockey stick, without discussing your work […]

von Storch and Zorita blog on the Hockey Stick

At a Nature climate change blog, von Storch and Zorita write: In October 2004 we were lucky to publish in Science our critique of the hockey-stick’ reconstruction of the temperature of the last 1000 years. Now, two and half years later, it may be worth reviewing what has happened since then. The publication in 2004 […]
