“CO2 Optical Illusion“. Steven Goddard is nothing if not stubborn. He still thinks that graphics editors can be used to prove that Global Warming is a lie. NASA’s Earth Observatory image of the day has him all riled up.
Here he once again mangles legitimate scientific images and then counts pixels to prove… something. Although he admits that “This is not a perfect equal area projection – so the pixel count method is not 100% accurate” it doesn’t stop him from speaking from the mountaintop. He declares that “5% more pixels were below normal than were above normal” but ignores the unreported areas (most of India and China) that almost all lie within hotter than normal regions.
Pixels, eh Steven? I think you’re actually looking at pixies. I suppose it makes a change from arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
Nice to see this blog back in action.
I absolutely refuse to go to WTFUWT and I’m a bit bemused sometimes by others references. This lets me keep up with the farce without increasing that man’s hit count.
Goddard’s been corrected before on his pixel counting “analysis” – see the editor’s note here:
So he certainly knows better.
Christopher Monckton and other deniers get far more press coverage than they deserve. Journalistic false balance has caused the public to be confused on climate change – the greatest threat to humanity this century. Worse, these deniers have used mainstream media to attack climate science and the scientists who pursue the truth. Let us now turn the tables.
Monckton has been exposed by Dr. John Abraham and instead of hiding his tail and whimpering away, Monckton has gone on the offensive by attacking Dr. Abraham and asking his followers to essentially “email bomb” Dr. Abraham’s university president. We need to alert the media to this story.
I have assembled a list of 57 media contacts in the hopes that my readers will follow my lead and send letters asking for an investigation of Monckton and his attack on Abraham. I have placed mailto links that will make it easy to send letters to several contacts at once with a single click.
In the thread comments, please suggest other contacts in the US and from abroad. This blog thread can then be used in the future to alert the media to denialist activity.
I’ve done many kinds of analyses of various climate-related phenomena over the years, and Goddard’s technique of pixel-counting is new to me. It’s bizarre and rather stupid, to say the least.

Blog Science debunks Blog ‘Science’.

Phil Jones ‘endorsed’ Oxburgh’s paper selection
So we already knew that ‘CRU’ endorsed the paper selection – we know now that this was done in person by the Director of the Unit. Well, I am shocked, just shocked, I tell you.
Bishop Hill is the new Bernstein, no mistake.
“Quote of the week: Stephen Schneider jumps the shark.” (WUWT, July 18, 2010)
STEPHEN SCHNEIDER (1945-2010)
WUWT loses by the decision to only close the comments, instead of taking down the entire post. There will now be more people actually reading the Stanford magazine interview, because of its ‘last words’ status. And the justapositioning will show a reasonableness/extremism balance that goes strongly against WUWT.
“Sea Ice News #14–an inconvenient July” (WUWT, July 18, 2010)
CRYOSPHERE TODAY………. Steve apparently chooses to present the current ice extent w/concentration map along with some other year’s in order to utilize the DARKER COLOR SCALE used in the comparisons.
(Another difference: “sea ice concentration less than 30% are not displayed in these images.”)
