STUDY: Warmest Year On Record Received Cool Climate Coverage - Media Matters for America
Sunday Shows Quoted No Democratic Politicians On Climate Change.
In Four Years, Sunday Shows Have Not Quoted A Single Scientist On Climate Change.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds another mechanism by which the Sun controls climate
A paper published today in Climate of the Past finds that changes in both solar activity and the Earth's orbit "lead to changes in surface temperature and in...precipitation" and that both of these changes interact with feedbacks to produce complex patterns of climate change.
The paper also shows solar activity [TSI] at the end of the 20th century was near the highest levels of the past 10,000 years. The paper shows average total solar irradiance [TSI] at the Earth surface increased by about 1.2 Wm-2 from the Maunder Minimum 300 years ago to the end of the 20th century, dwarfing the alleged effect of CO2 over the same time period [about 0.3 Wm-2 at the Earth surface].

It's OK. Donna Laframboise hasn't been involved in some terrible scandal in which she has been caught hiding declines or faking evidence or breaching FOI requests or anything. That's the other side's speciality, not ours. But I thought she deserved a gate named after her, nonetheless, for her latest scoop: leaking the IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) on to the internet – in time for honest blogging folk to unpick it before it gets spun by the usual alarmist suspects.
