Is this Dilbert on ClimateGate?

Is Scott Adams’ Dilbert making fun of the current ClimateGate controversy?

In ClimateGate, really smart researchers on the climate took a bunch of data and made some conclusions. They didn’t think their pointy-haired constituents that paid their salaries deserved to have all of the data – instead they gave us a thimble of the data. Of course, in their case they didn’t tell us to wear the thimble like a hat – they just said that we should trust them since they are scientists and know what is good for us. In fact that big pile of paper that Dilbert is carrying doesn’t exist from Paul Jones and his friends – they threw the pile of paper away and just left the thimble!

April Fool’s Day

I know I have been a bit lax on posting about global warming lately. Frankly, the global economic crisis has been dominating my free time lately.

However, I couldn’t forget that I spend most April Fools Day’s trying to laugh and have a good time. Here are some cartoons on global warming that hopefully will make you smile.

Is it too cold outside to have global warming?

There has been some talk in the press and on some of the blogs that it is too cold in the last couple years to have a global warming trend. Some even say that the warming trend is reversed and it is now going to get colder. There are a variety of people that discuss that the ice caps are re-freezing after having melted which signals that global warming is reversing. Some talk of a local low record that was set at some airport.

The reality is that much of this talk is about weather and not about climate. It is not possible to measure climate within a couple year span. It takes much longer than that to eliminate the various highs and lows from the trend so most climatologists suggest 5-10 years (or longer) before anything is really called climate.

Dilbert: Director of Green

When the EPA was a joke, “Ghostbusters” made fun of it in the movie.  Now we have Dilbert.  Click the image to go to the Dilbert site to see the full size cartoon:

I can’t resist showing this Dilbert cartoon

I think that Dilbert cartoons are incredibly funny most of the time. Maybe it is because I have spent much of my life in corporate America and therefore I can relate to many of the story lines.

This episode is on-target with this site. Enjoy. Laugh. Go read other Dilbert cartoons. Have a good weekend.

APRIL FOOLS!!

I know that this tradition is a little strange to my readers in other countries and other cultures. The US has a tradition of playing practical jokes on the first day of April and accompanying the prank with the declaration of yelling out “April Fools”. It seems only fitting on this day of humor to post a few global warming cartoons.

Please enjoy and please laugh a little today. Life is short and it is shorter if we don’t laugh. The cartoons below are small images of the actual cartoons – click through to the original site to see the cartoon at full size.

This site is 1 years old today

Just a quick note to everyone to announce the 1 year birthday of this site. Last February 12, I kicked off this site with the following article:

Carbon Cycle

I must say that I have enjoyed the last year and I continue to think that the discussion on this topic is still very relevant. I plan to continue this discussion and exploration for the foreseeable future.

I didn’t quite make my goal of averaging a new article every day. Instead, I have posted 351 times so I am 14 short. I am happy to report that almost 20,000 people have viewed this site in the last 12 months. I wish I could thank each of you personally but I am afraid that this public announcement must suffice.
