Shrimp season starts strong despite delay - Local -
It was extra cold. It was especially mean. For 31 days, starting in mid-December, water temperatures were at or below 47 degrees, cold enough to kill the white shrimp. And it did.

She knew the harsh winter was the reason the commercial shrimp trawling season, which usually opens in late May or early June, was delayed until June 22. The opening date has not been this late since 2001, which was preceded by a similar chilly winter, said Brett Witt, a S.C. Department of Natural Resources spokesman based in Columbia. - UNDA defends intellectual freedom over Monckton
When WA Greens Senator Scott Ludlam told Lord Monckton, “it must be lonely being on the fringe when 97 per cent of scientists” confirm global warming, the Briton questioned that figure, as only “a few dozen” scientists were actually involved in climate sensitivity work.

New Paper Illustrates Another Failure Of The IPCC Mullti-Decadal Global Model Predictions – “On the Warming In The Tropical Upper Troposphere: Models Versus Observations” By Fu Et Al 2011 | Climate Science: Roger Pielke Sr.
This new Fu et al 2011 paper, despite ignoring peer-reviewed papers that show the discrepancy is even larger, is still another “confession” regarding the failure of the IPCC to accurately simulate the climate system.
The Sensitive Kind | The Resilient Earth
Are the climate science estimates getting better, is the historical data improving? Perhaps. But it is important to recognize that our current knowledge of paleoclimate remains spotty and filled with errors. So, if studying paleodata is superior to climate modeling in the elusive hunt for an accurate sensitivity reading, and the proxy data used to study paleoclimate is itself suspect, where does that leave climate science? Right where its critics have suggested, an immature science that really cannot make any trustworthy predictions about future climate change. That fact is something we all should be sensitive to.
