Dr. Douglas Maraun performs time series analysis, extreme value statistics, and analysis of precipitation extremes at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.

…he also actually pondered, “how do we avoid sounding religious or arrogant?”, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Dr. Douglas Maraun, a scientist at the Climatic Reasearch Unit at the University of East Anglia wrote to his colleages in an e-mail on October 24, 2007.  Dr. Maraun, who seems to have more of a conscience than many of his colleagues, had some concerns which he wished to address in a “discussion seminar” to be held in the coffee room that afternoon.  Among Dr. Maraun’s points he wished to discuss were:

-How should we deal with flaws inside the climate community? I think,
that “our” reaction on the errors found in Mike Mann’s work were not
especially honest.

  1. Dishonest Warmist ? ? ?

    Prepare yourself for the full range of govenment funded LIES to be exposed….including green energy, peak oil, big bang….and all that edited history that deletes the bloody fingerprints of the elites….find and share TRUTH. It is time for universal freedom and a New Magna Carta.

    Read “Green Prince of Darkness”, “Fossil Fuel is Nuclear Waste” and “The Cure for Cosmology’s Peptic Ulcer”. Add the Faux History exposed in “I’ll Take Some E Pluribus…but Hold the Unum”.

    [you have been SO lied to….for SO long]

      “a New Magna Carta” Yes, in America. As a protective against the coming demographics-driven socialist redistributionist power / property grab. Reform Democracy, or America as we know it is lost.


  2. I like the nice, uncluttered look of the site, and I’m surprised I haven’t come across it before now. (I arrived courtesy of Climate Depot.)

    Earlier, I paid a rare visit to Romm’s place (what a vicious little man!) and was amused to see that his minions employed mostly political arguments in the comments section of Romm’s ClimateGate 2.0 post. Several called themselves ninety-nine percenters and echoed the “death to Wall Street” meme.

    Strange that those who decry the “mistreatment” of the climatologists often leave science completely out of their belief systems and mission statements. In the end, it really is ALL about politics and money. Al Gore Lied — what an appropriate name for a skeptical site.

    I’m linking to you, but please don’t return the favor, as much of my material is on other topics, and I wouldn’t want to disappoint.

      Thanks for your kind words. Honestly, the reason that you probably haven’t stumbled upon my blog before is that you could say that I was semi-retired from blogging, and this is only about the 4th post I’ve put up all year (first since September). I have over 1,200 posts on this blog, but most of them were posted from 2007 through the early part of 2010. It’s been very sporadic since then since blogging makes one weary, especially when you are deriving no income from it. Also, I’ve been busy with other activities. Climategate 2.0 grabbed my attention, and I just had to put up this post when I read that e-mail.

      Thanks again, and also for reading the blog.


      • Hey, thanks much for replying. I’m glad you posted on that particular e-mail.

        It’s great that you’ve been mentioned on The Daily Bayonet (what a great site, and, oh, the barbs are witty, indeed!) and on Climate Depot, but also, from what I’ve read here, the honors are well deserved.

        I’ll be digging through the archives here, but, now that I know you’re semi-retired, I won’t comment a lot, or raise a bunch of dust or anything. I’m planning a post on how bloggers are saving (have saved) the world, but I must make sure people don’t think it’s sarcastic or facetious. Bloggers actually have helped ensure my unborn great-grandchildren won’t have to suffer in energy poverty, while sublimating their aspirations to government whim. Given the pathetic state of journalism, bloggers can be (for a discriminating reader) a great source of news and views.

        Adios for now. I look forward to reading your older posts. Thanks.

          If you’re going to dig through the archives, go ahead, but I’d also recommend on the top of the page look for “All-time Most Popular Posts”, and look at those including the “Bonus” posts which are my personal favorites that didn’t make the top 10.
