Rectal Certitude

Let us all briefly continue to beat on the global warming skeptic Dr. Roy Spencer as he reels from his pitiful defense of Intelligent Design. From SW, we learn that his upper atmosphere temperature studies contained systematic errors, contraindicating the global cooling he thought they indicated. So we see that besides the coloring of his scientific beliefs with a personal bias he has similarly colored his scientific evidence with an experimental bias. I see no difference between Spencer and the local meat butcher with the sneaky thumb.

OK, OK, I promise to stop kicking this dead horse now....

Just as soon as I can stop chuckling over the justified embarrassment directed at him for neglecting the gradual radiant heating of the floating thermometer fleet. What else did he forget to do? I have no idea, but someone should also tell the beet-red Spencer to pull the rectal thermometer out of his anus, pronto. Trying to fudge the data post facto won't work. We have the world's eyeballs on you.

This is totally off topic, but I was wondering what the gas prices were in your city (Minneapolis??). Even in Houston, they are over 3.00/gal at some stations (see http://images.chron.com/content/news/photos/05/08/13/front_gas2.jpg ). Gas has been going up a nickel a day here for the last week. There is a supply shortage and the price is moving up to find a demand tipping point. The only solution to that is a economic slowdown (near term) aka a recession. I don't know if it is the real deal (inexorable and forever) but to me, the political shit is about to hit the fan.

We may get a respite after labor day, but the seeds of doubt have been planted and the winter will be one of discontent.
