We start the year with ‘Welcome to the Adjustocene’ – one of the many problems with Climate science is the constant adjusting of the data. There may be good reasons for doing so but it does mean that you can never trust temperature data because it will probably be adjusted at some point in the future. To the right is a cartoon of a bunch of trolls – I drew this to post on Twitter rather than a blog, something I seem to be doing more this year – there are lots of trolls on Twitter so this is a useful cartoon to tweet every now and then. Below that is a Green Blob cartoon – which came from a story about ‘Friends of the Earth Limited’ being different from ‘Friends of the Earth’ so they could lie/spin/exaggerate as much as they liked to raise money. The fourth cartoon has helpful tips on what to do with Climate Scientists now the science is settled and we have the Paris Agreement.
Where did the time go? It is now May and I have not looked at this website for months – it’s been that busy! I guess the first cartoon on the February page is entirely appropriate – ‘whatever’. The topic of Climate change seems to have dropped from main stream media. Below is a similar cartoon with David Cameron becoming a sceptic when he sees the massive costs. He is not new news too now. Below that is a cartoon about the Paris Agreement. The main cartoon is Climate Change the Musical – Obama (old news) stars in an expensive show.
Apparently 20-whatever was The Hottest Year Evah! Or not. You never really know with Climate Science. But at least the science is settled so we can sack all the climate scientists. And Tuvalu– who knew science required evidence? The main cartoon at the bottom is the thought that the toothless Paris Agreement on Climate Change was ‘Legally Binding’ isn’t and probably not understood by anyone anyway. Good job.
50 Shades of Green, one of my favourite of the year – H/t to Tim Payment, Sunday Times, for the phrase. Telepathist Mike Mann in a cartoon. The one above cartoon is Mike too – I will add the link when I find it. On the lower line, Paris Poker and a message to COP21
Top left the hilarious Boaty McBoatface story. To the right another in the Paris series of cartoons. Below, a memo to Monbiot on subsidies. To the left of that a story about the confusion Climate scientists have on knowing which is the Northern hemisphere or the other one – direct link here. Finally ‘Come to University!’.
As I write we are not quite there but I might as well get ahead of myself. Especially as the big cartoon is on EU referendum shenanigans – something we have seen a lot of since the UK voted for Brexit. Emmanure Thompson makes an appearance – great make-up. And finally we try to save our steel.
The Planet is Greening – we told you so! Next is how to frame Climate change. I use the word ‘Frame’ advisedly, m’lud. Bottom right came from a post by Steve MacIntyre about Gavin Schmidt trying to hide the gap. Bottom left, Brandon discovers a Climate Stupid Chart. Look, it’s a real thing.
