Not much has caught my eye this past week, I need some help in identifying interesting news/posts/articles.
The last time I had the feeling that climate news was really thin/boring, the Peter Gleick story broke; maybe this feeling portends something interesting happening. Or perhaps just the midsummer doldrums.
The week we’ve seen the close of the investigation into the CRU hack by the hapless Norfolk Constabulary, Michael Mann publicizing an article in the National Review that likens the Penn State football scandal to the hockeystick ‘scandal’, more touting of the heatwave/AGW link, etc. It all seems like a big yawn to me.
I did spot a few reasonably interesting articles on energy:
- New, Old World of U.S. Oil Policy
- Resource Recovery Facilities: An Economic and Efficient Energy Supply
Update: Ashley Halligan sends the following summary on the resource recovery facilities article:
The latest alarmism:
- Bill McKibben: Global warming’s terrifying new math
- Joe Romm: Congressional testimony on climate change and wildfires
So, did anyone spot anything interesting this past week?
The topics I have in my file for future posts require a fair amount of work, so the frequency of new posts will be a little slower for the next few weeks, unless some softballs are lobbed into my court, or some guest posts materialize (hint, hint).
Update: There are two superb posts on attribution of last years Texas heat wave:
