It occurred to me this evening listening to Donna, that some may wonder why I’ve stopped blogging. I think the answer is fairly simple: I tend to blog when I’m trying to work out something or thinking through an issue.
But except for the Donna lecture, there’s now little left for me to mull over on climate. Now I understand skeptics & those academics opposing them, I’m no longer curious about either side.
But even more odd, now I know skeptics will win, instead of being all the keener to see change, I’ve lost interest. I can only liken it to sneakily finishing the film when my wife goes to bed and then trying to pretend I’m interested the next evening.
How do I know skeptics will win?
- I’ve worked out why climate models fail to model the climate. So, they are certainly wrong, I’m no longer interest in “what ifs”, because there is nothing left to work out.
- I’ve refined my understanding of CO2 and how it has interacted with the planet in the past during the ice-ages. This largely removes any possibility of massive positive feedbacks from CO2.
- I now understand what makes skeptics tick – and I can only say I’m glad I’m not on the other side. Because for all their bluster – the alarmists haven’t a chance.
- I’ve worked out why academics are so hostile to sceptics. And like someone with an annoying twitch, it is not easily changed, so it seems pointless trying to change them. Worse, trying to engage with academics now will just make them confused and angry.
- And perhaps most ironic of all, I’m starting to feel sorry for our present politicians. Yes, the poor sods. It’s like watching lambs going down the ramp to the slaughterhouse oblivious to what awaits them. Why let them in on the secret? – let them have this last interlude of tranquillity!
This is why I’ve stopped blogging. The subject is no longer a question, but is more like a timetable.
In light of some comments, I should just mention, that this is in no way an end for me as I operate a number of other sites:
- uClimate.com – I suppose the nearest thing to a “skeptic newspaper”. A lot of work is happening behind the scenes.
- Scottish Independent People – This is a political blog focussed solely on Scotland.
- uBurns.com – (currently inactive) but will be to Scottish Politics what uClimate is to climate.
- Lenzie.org.uk – my first major website. About two years of effort and then I realise that it could never be more than a hobby site. Now only kept online as the adverts cover the costs and there’s a few features I find handy.
In addition, I’ve got a few odd sites:
- Haseler.net – which I own for the email (bought before .coms became fashionable!)
- savelenziemoss.org.uk – an environmentalist site, in the best tradition trying, and hopefully succeeding at saving our local nature reserve from being turned into housing. (Not once did we hear anything from the greens or greenspins – these organisations are all mouth and no action)
- Antoninewall.co.uk – it was going to be a site about Scottish archaeology, until I discovered that Scottish archaeology/history is so full of myth and other crap that it wasn’t going to be a pleasant past time away from the myth and crap of [consensus] climate science.
- SCEF – Scottish Climate & Energy Forum (I’m planning to join whatever Anthony Watts creates which should make this redundant).
- uKipper – A site for linguistics – currently running a hastily put together page where I attempt to remove various letters of the alphabet hopefully with amusing results. (Originally planned as a social site for UKIP members. Then the Scottish party were shafted by England.)
- Thelords.org.uk – where I plot the overthrow of the British establishment
