Friday video pick

This a funny, albeit over-the-top, commercial produced by Greenpeace. Love the guy pushing up his glasses and flipping the bird.

Labour Party calls for climate change strippergate inquiry

And on the lighter side of the climate change issue, the Australian opposition Labour Party are now calling for an immediate inquiry into a government sponsored climate change conference that included strippers as entertainment.

In an interview with ABC Radio, Opposition environment spokesman Anthony Albanese says:

“I think we do need to know the circumstances of how it occurred, in terms of whether someone in the department made a decision, who was overseeing the conference, I think it does need an explanation.”

The scheduled 45-minute Burlesque Show, which included a “popping balloon act,” ran as the after-dinner entertainment, but after 10 minutes or so, the show abruptly ended as climate scientists started leaving.

Wegman Wiggles Out of Hockey Stick Accountability

Here's a great post on the hateful hockey stick. On one hand, I hesitate even to raise the subject because deniers have used the famous Mann hockey stick graph so effectively to distract attention from the scientific consensus on climate change. On the other hand, it now seems that one of the most recent and most-quoted hockey stick critics. Dr. Edward J. Wegman, is dodging his responsibility to back up his numbers.
Also, if you read down on the RealClimate post to comment #6, you'll find an interesting bit of criticism of the graphs that Wegman uses to make his critical argument. And if you click through to Wegman's voluminous report, and go to figure 4.1 on page 30, you'll find the graphs in question originated not from Wegman, but from McIntyre and McKitrick, the economist and the statistician who first criticized Mann's original work.
