To All New Readers Of Suyts Space


This is nice.  I’ve never felt obliged to write this.

First and foremost, welcome! 

I say welcome and mean it.  It doesn’t matter a whit whether one is in agreement with me (the humble host) or not.  In this arena, provided we don’t cross the line, there is no moderation here.  Cursing is discouraged.  Threats are forbidden, but will be laughed at, were it to ever happen.  Those are the rules … I guess, I just made them up!

For the most part, this is a one man operation as far as running the blog, which entails me bringing up a subject and the various commenters explaining how it really is. Agreement with your host is not required, nor is it really encouraged.  Just be ready to come with it if you do disagree. 

This is an elite group of people who typically converse here.  Not so much me, but the ones who comment.  We don’t confine ourselves to climate issues.  This blog is more of a socioeconomic blog.  It is not confined to the US, although I’m an American and my perspective is American-centric.  It is understood that this is a smaller world and that the events in the rest of the world are pertinent.  

Again, welcome!

    Like your place suyts and will be back again soon. I have read your piece on hockey sticks and find your analysis readable and enjoyable. Well done.

    We are also fortunate to have some non-American frequent contributors to add a perspective that is not American. Most notably, Kelly from Oz, and Dirk from Deutschland.

    new guy in town, Q- why is the 420,000 yr Vostek ice core data an anomaly with a 10 degree spread and the Central Greenland 50,000 year core data in actual temperature with a 20 degree spread -30 to -50 Degree ? If these are global temperature why the temperature scaling difference??

      Joe, I’m not ignoring your question. I just don’t know the answer. While many here like to reference paleo studies. I’m not a big believer in them. IMHO, there are why too many issues to overcome when discussing data referencing tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands years ago. I do, from time to time, discuss them, depending upon context, but they don’t occupy my thoughts.

      Maybe someone else can help with the question?

      Hello Joe,

      Vostok is located in the Antarctic where there is less regional temperature variability (SH) as compared to Central Greenland (NH). Thus, I would expect Vostok to have less variability in its dataset.

      When comparing two proxies, the variability of the proxies is less important than the trend. Some proxies are noisy and have much more variability while still having loose agreement on the trend as compared to other proxies.
