Gavin Schmidt skewers Judith Curry's latest bit of silliness

Judith Curry asks:
So, am I ‘making things up’?  Seems to me that I am applying straightforward logic.  

To find the answer (in case you can't guess), go visit realclimate.org.

In case you missed it, Judith Curry wrote a very silly article the other day about the rise in global temperatures and the meaning of various attribution statements in the IPCC reports. No dumber than normal, but this time her article was skewered very neatly by Gavin Schmidt, Director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

In case you missed it, here is a link to Gavin's article at realclimate.org. And here is a link to an archive of Judith's bit of silliness.

I wonder if she is embarrassed yet. Probably not. Judith Curry seems to have given up on science and faded into the deniosphere.


  1. Yes you are, Judith.

  4. Ugh, that 'mobile friendly' version is horrible! Is that really the default for realclimate now?

    1. No, but I find it pretty consistently misidentifies, randomly of course, Chrome as a mobile browser. At the bottom of the page is a link which takes you to the desktop view, though if you get stuck in the sucky mode.

    2. Same for Firefox, apparently! I discovered the rabbit hole, but it would be nice if the CSS contained something that more reliably ID'ed desktop browsing...

    3. bill, the links in my article are all to the main (desktop) version. If you're browser is going to the mobile version and you're on a desktop, p'raps tell someone at realclimate?
