University Of Colorado Moron Alert

The University of Colorado brought us James Holmes, Ward Churchill, and one of the most corrupt football programs in the US. They also told us five years ago that Colorado skiing is doomed.

  1. Nonsense. AGW is happening, witness the evidence of last year’s lack of snow in Colorado, triggering wildfires that experts said could burn unabated until the snow in the fall. And considering this was said in newspapers and at the PBS NewsHour, it must be so.

    • The High Park fire was extinguished by rain in July, within a week of the “burn until October” claim.

      • *ahem* Ignore that.

        And yes, Steve here shows newspaper reports that contradict what other newspapers report about AGW, but ya gotta remember this is a blog here and science is not conducted at blogs.

        So, for REAL science, everybody needs to go to RealClimate, a blog that…………. uh……… ummmmmmmm………..

  2. Ok, ok, ignore RealClimate. The lack of snow causing AGW and unstoppable wildfi… er, AGW is proven by national agencies like the EPA, led by experts like ████████████████ , speaking boldly on ████████████████████████ and ████████ while upholding the highest standards of ████████████████████████████████ , ████████████ and transparency.

      I gotta ask … what characters did you use to get the redaction appearance there?

      They came out as black marks rendered on the page, but they copy/paste as normal asterisks.

      • Billy Liar says:

        You must be using a non-MS operating system. WordPress on Windows and Notepad on Windows both copy the redactions identically.

      • Blade says:

        Actually it is Windows, but you’re right, it copy/pasted as okay, however it converted from the extended HTML character set to the extended ASCII 256 character set.

        It looks like he is using dec=9608 hex=2588 … literally: … rendered:

        It is converted during copy/paste into dec=0166 hex=00A6 … literally: ¦ … rendered: ¦

        Traditional redaction in ASCII 256 is dec=0254 hex=00FE … literally: þ … rendered: þ

        It should be mapped down to #254 instead of #166 but it’s way too late to fix it now.

        ( trying again because those literals didn’t come out )

        I think it’s because the character is a black rectangle in some fonts but not others. It’s in the Arial font but not in the Tahoma font which is common in Windows. Lucida Sans Unicode has a good selection of black blocks of varying size!

    I always make the mistake of looking at US temperatures and thinking I’m surprised you get any snow at all.

    Then I remember it is Fahrenheit not Celsius.

    Isn’t it time the whole world agreed on at least one thing ?

    Metric is the universal language of science now – even the British surrendered Imperial.

    Let’s all go metric – it could only improve communication.

    The only argument against is those high temperatures over 100 sound wayyy more impressive than 40.

    • Bob Koss says:

      Science usually uses the Kelvin scale where 273.15 equals freezing point of water. Since Celsius degrees are the same size as Kelvin using Kelvin would really demonstrate the triviality of a 0.8C change in average temperature over a century. A global average temperature of 15C would be 288.15K and the total change over the last century would be less than 0.3%. That is pretty damn stable.

      Inflation is an order of magnitude larger than that each year and directly affects everyone immediately, yet the speculation about a much smaller change in temperature a century from now gets the vast majority of attention. It makes no sense to me. Other than as a nice little earner of a scam, I mean.
