“I’d like to see a calculation to show how long it would take for its miles-thick icepack to melt at 33 degrees F. Sea level increases wouldn’t matter because if you weren’t living closer to the poles you’d be dealing with 150-200 degree temperatures on the surface. I hear it’s gonna happen in five years or so.”
–Bunk Strutts, 20 October 2009.

Folks, this post was sitting around for a while, and I was about to delete it except for recent events regarding the AGW hoax debates.  If you haven’t been following, here are some links to bring you up to speed.

Soylent Green’s cbullitt posted the error data cluster from the AGW folks at East Anglia University’s world renowned Climate Research Unit.  (BTW, thanks for the hat tip cbull.)

The UK Telegraph chimes in on “Climategate.”

AJStrata has been debunking (gawd I hate that word) AGW for some time now.

Chris Horner of Watts Up With That has filed three NOIs:

“Today, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, I filed three Notices of Intent to File Suit against NASA and its Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), for those bodies’ refusal – for nearly three years – to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.”

Iowahawk dissects the situation. Don’t miss this one.

Even CBS (!?) seems to have gotten the story right. Lookee here.

Hot Links – Cephalopoodle Edition

And then I’ll call Pup Tentacle

Note that we have once again made Google History by being the first to post the term “Cephalopoodle.” It’s right up there with the first mention and commentary about Igde Pshat. Y’all are cordially welcome.

zen haiku:
knock knock knock knock knock
knock knock knock who’s there? Not that
octopus again

From that same link comes this great Zen google translation:
“Neurotic he is already.You can repair the way the octopus laugh : it is like empty.”

Congrats to Hanan of GrowABrain for the new addition to his family unit.

Tribute websites exist for just about everything, including the WWW. Don’t badmouth Artemus Gordon.

Interesting lecture on creativity by Sir Ken Robinson. I don’t agree with everything he espouses, but it’s an entertaining commentary on the public education system.

Given that a circle is comprised of line segments, and that each segment is tangent to the center of that circle, then the simplest circle that one can draw is an equilateral triangle.

Soldier’s Mail came from a comment on this post. Good stuff.

Military Magazine is still a good read. Get a free copy and decide for yourself.

Oh, and BTW, Hobotopia rocks.
