Harold Ambler is worth reading.

“The good reviews of DSYC keep coming: Anthony Watts, Andrew Montford (author of The Hockey Stick Illusion), Tallbloke, Tom Nelson, and now the blog Climate Lessons.”

via | “Climate change” is based on two lies: that climate used to be both stable and gentle. Nothing could be farther from the truth..

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

Galileo Galilei

It’s the ocean, stupid.

The Argo floats are showing clearly that the earth’s thermostat works very well.

“The number of temperature records peaks around 29°C, and drops quickly for temperatures above 30°C. This clearly establishes the existence of the mechanism limiting the oceanic temperatures.”

If you’re going through hell, keep going.

Winston Churchill

Tonight, I was stabbed through. I’ve been being stabbed, bloodied, and bruised, but tonight it hit the nerve. The pain is more than I can imagine. I regret that I agreed to take the pain for five more weeks.

Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.

Max Planck

The Church of Global Warming is shattering in Germany, one of the last bastions of the movement. Even the environmental bishops are leaving the Church.

Of course, this reference goes with Anthony’s. I just think it is worth repeating.

The question of course is how could such absurd decisions have been made to begin with? Were there no experts involved in the planning of the new power generation infrastructure? The answer obviously is no. Power executives are viewed as evil, dirty and greedy polluters, and thus were never really consulted. They could not be counted on to give the politically correct solutions. Therefore the decision to shut down the German nuclear power plants and to massively support renewables was done unilaterally by the government, without consulting the power executives or even neighboring countries.

To the handful of readers who find my blog, I understand I’m not helping spread the word. I’ll mention this in conversation to as many people as read this statement. However, it helps as best I can, and I mainly post here what I think is significant.,0,2691257.story

I don’t believe it. I won’t believe it. Our lawmakers made criminals of us all while we sniffled when they outlawed pseudofed–while claiming that would eliminate meth from our state. Hmm… Maybe it didn’t work out like they expected.

…it as a majestic rolling grassland. In spring the Indian Paint Brushes, the red clover, bluebonnets and a dozen varieties of sunflower paint the landscape in a riot of color bold enough to delight Chagall. Deer and puma, wild turkey and coyotes play deadly games of hide and seek in the thick groves of cottonwood, cedar and blackjack oak along the creek beds.

The article is worth reading, of course, but here I am specifically calling attention to his:
Modern aphorism
The love of theory is the root of all evil.

Wow! Good one!
