THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Paper finds a long-term cooling trend in the N. Atlantic and Mediterranean
A paper published in Quaternary Science Reviews finds a long-term cooling trend of the sea surface in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean during the Holocene [past 10,000 years]. According to the authors, "All [7 of these] these paleo-temperature records document an apparent long-term cooling during the last 10,000 years." The paper confirms other research finding a cooling of the Sargasso Sea in the N. Atlantic over the past 3,000 years.
The New Nostradamus of the North: Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber wants to"fundamentally rethink" the economy because of global warming
[Kitzhaber] The Gross National Product measures all the economic activity of the country and anything that produces a profit counts as a plus. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill was “great for the economy,” he said, “carnage on the highways, crime, the prison system, the war in Afghanistan – all count as positive in our current way of measuring,” the governor explained.
Dana Nuccitelli Refuses Reality: Richard Tol Calls John Cook’s Survey “Silly Idea…Poorly Implemented”
Tol’s last comment pretty much sums up the quality Cook’s and Nuccitelli’s work. I could say every day last year in my hometown was over 25°C (if I ignore 320 of them and misclassify a quarter of the 45 I did count).

Dana Nuccitelli is becoming a real asset for the skeptics, one that we certainly don’t want to lose.
The Reference Frame: Does global warming cause tornadoes?
Please, Ms Barbara Boxer and others, stop talking about these medieval hypothetical links that sound almost identical as the accusations against the witches in Salem, Massachusetts. Science supports none of your fantasies and every attempt by a person to rationalize such fantasies shows that the person lacks scientific integrity – and sometimes plain human honesty, too.
