Andrew Weaver Praises O’Donnell et al 2010

Reader David O emailed me: I thought you might be interested that today at 11:00am Andrew Weaver was on the Bill Good show on am980 in Vancouver. Much to my amazement Dr. Weaver actually had some kind words to say about you regarding your new Antarctic study. The Interview can be heard here. FF to […]

New KGB-Fossil Fuel Company Attack at UVic

Increasingly nervous about progress at Copenhagen, the KGB-fossil fuel network have intensified their pressure on Andrew Weaver of the University of Victoria and climate modelers throughout the world. The most recent outrage was a laptop theft from an anthropology lab at the university. Breaking news from our correspondent at the University of Victoria, ground zero […]

Weaver Solves Climategate

Andrew Weaver, a modeler with the University of Victoria General Circulation Modeling Unit, has attracted considerable attention with his allegations that computer thefts at the University of Victoria were smoking gun proof of teleconnections between American fossil fuel interests, Russian secret agents and Climategate. Andrew Ll. Weaver, a modeler with the University of Victoria General […]

More Break-Ins at the University of Victoria

Disconcerted at being left out of the recent Climategate publicity, Andrew Weaver of the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island breathlessly blamed (now here) recent break-ins at the university’s climate center on shadowy fossil fuel groups.  Weaver connected the break-ins to Britain’s Climategate, which IPCC officials have attributed to shadowy Russian secret agents. Weaver said that […]

SPM4 Eve

What will I be looking for in the SPM4? There’s not much fun in trying to predict their temperature estimate when they’ve already leaked that it’s 2-4.5 deg C by 2100. So here are some things that I’m going to be looking for.

SPM4 Preview: The Hockey Stick Lives

Andrew Weaver in an article here says of the SPM: “This isn’t a smoking gun; climate is a batallion of intergalactic smoking missiles.” Wow. Even better than Space Invaders. There was a big front page preview of the SPM in the Toronto Globe and Mail today here all of which is worth reading, but for […]

Climate Models – the Next Generation

Weaver says the next generation of his climate model will address the influence of climate on human evolution. I guess we can expect headlines saying that scientists University of Victoria have shown that global warming, if left unchecked, will lead to the development of a third eye by the year 2075.

Rutherford 2005 and the Divergence Problem

Rutherford et al 2005 (the et al being half the Hockey Team: Mann, Bradley, Hughes, Briffa, Jones, Osborn) is a re-statement of the MBH98 network (flawed PCs and all) and the Briffa et al 2001 network using RegEM. I haven’t figured out exactly what the properties of the RegEM method are as compared to other […]

Rutherford, Mann et al [2005]

Over at Daily Kos, Mann says that the Nomads (this is a new candidate name for the Hockey Team) have moved on and that RegEM, as in Rutherford, Mann et al [2005], is the new sheriff. At the end of the day, it’s hard to see how the RegEM method avoids any of the BàƒÆ’à‚⻲ger […]

Spot the Hockey Stick #9: Andrew Weaver

It’s been too long since our last round of Spot the Hockey Stick! but despite the impressive backpedalling of some that the Mann, Bradley and Hughes study is sooo old hat and soooo last millennium, it’s still being cited at breathtaking pace as the best thing in climate science since the thermometer. Thus we come […]
