Time out

Life interruptus.

Thanks to a number of things that suddenly demand all my attention, all of the time, the blog is taking a break. It might be a short break, it might be a long break. I can’t predict with any accuracy and since I’m not a climate scientist, I won’t try.

Hosting is paid up for while ahead, so the site’s safe if you need a hottie fix. And the Blogroll is replete with talent, wit and in one very special case, all the nakedry you can shake a stick at. Poor choice of words, but Soylent won’t mind.

For actual science stuff I recommend WUWT and Tallbloke. Climate Change Dispatch is a good source of AGW stories, and for snark you need Ace, or at least Ace’s commenters. And if you’re interested in just how bad a day Raj Pachauri is having, check with Minx the Merciless.

TA covers the UK, Simon at ACM has down-under covered, and Tom Nelson doesn’t miss anything, anywhere. And for pure Internet entertainment, Theo is unbeatable.

Here’s a consolation hottie, because you’re worth it. She’s Eva Green, because why not go out with a green?

As always, thanks for reading.

Oh noes, worriers worry about warming

You don’t have to be a bit crazy to believe global warming is running rampant because of a few factories and a harmless trace gas essential to life on Earth and not the giant ball of nuclear hell in the sky, but it helps:

A new study has found that many people with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are worrying about the effects of climate change and global warming. Researchers from the University of Sydney looked at patients attending an anxiety disorders clinic.

They found one-third of the patients had anxiety about the effects of climate change. Their behaviours included checking and rechecking pets water bowls, light switches, taps and stoves.

Chris Mooney hardest hit.
