The Climate Show 14: volcanoes, black carbon and Christy crocks

Posted on 19 June 2011 by John Cook

The Climate Show have just released Episode 14. A busy news week sees Glenn and Gareth discussing volcanoes in Chile and Africa, busy pumping ash into the atmosphere and disrupting flights in South America, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East, an extreme spring in the USA, drought in Europe and a warm autumn in NZ, a new UN report on black carbon and how a reduction could cut future warming, Aussie scientists fighting back against climate denial, and forecasts for the summer ice minimum in the Arctic. I deal with our series on John Christy's climate crocks and introduce a great new graphic front end for the SkS climate literature database, plus they cover price reductions on solar panels, LEDs on streetlights in San Francisco and MIT's Cambridge crude.

  2. Speaking of long-term trends, has anyone charted the length of The Climate Show per episode? There certainly seems to be a strong recent upward trend, but whether it's statistically significant... :-P Another good show. 'Watched' it while doing some noise modelling work (gotta love dual-screen setups...)

  3. Thanks for giving me credit too, John. First time ever I've been called a "bloke"!

  4. The screen capture (with the play button over his eye) makes John Cook appear to be Borg from Star Trek. It isn't a bad look....

    Response: [JC] What does it tell you if a borg implant improves my appearance?
  5. @John Cook: You'll look a lot better if you don't lean into your screen so much.

  6. @Badgersouth: He was just trying to show off that nice fluffy collar... :-P (As a fellow Queenslander, John, I sympathise entirely!)

  7. Whats your problem with Borg's? I personally feel that 7 of 9 brought a distinct gravitas to the Star Trek franchise. Ooops, sorry, I meant gravity. Well actually a sort of gravity defying uplift, a definite sort of uplifted, pointed, firmness to the exploration of unknown regions where....I might just stop there...
