An open letter from Dr. Judith Curry on climate science

Dr. Judith Curry

I asked Dr. Judith Curry if I could repost her letter which she originally sent to Climate Progress, here at WUWT. Here was her response:

From: Curry, Judith A
Sent: Friday, November 27, 2009 2:10 PM
To: Anthony Watts – mobile
Subject: Re: request

Hi Anthony, by all means post it. I am trying to reach out to everyone, pls help in this effort. Judy

Dr. Curry gets props from the skeptical community because she had the courage to invite Steve McIntyre to give a presentation at Georgia Tech, for which she took criticism. Her letter is insightful and addresses troubling issues. We can all learn something from it. – Anthony


An open letter to graduate students and young scientists in fields related to climate research – By Dr. Judith A. Curry, Georgia Tech

Based upon feedback that I’ve received from graduate students at Georgia Tech, I suspect that you are confused, troubled, or worried by what you have been reading about ClimateGate and the contents of the hacked CRU emails. After spending considerable time reading the hacked emails and other posts in the blogosphere, I wrote an essay that calls for greater transparency in climate data and other methods used in climate research. The essay is posted over at (you can read it at 2009/ 11/ 22/ curry-on-the-credibility-of-climate-research/).

State of Denial: The ‘It-is-not-us’ syndrome

Hajrah Mumtaz

A couple of months ago, I wrote a column in praise of certain Pakistani pop stars and bands, arguing that there are a fair number of songs that display political consciousness and a related sense of responsibility. I referred to such songs as Junoon’s ‘Talaash’, Shahzad Roy’s ‘Lagay Raho’ and ‘Kismet Apnay Haath Main’, Noori’s ‘Merey Log’ and Laal’s rendition of Habib Jalib’s ‘Main Nay Uss Say Yeh Kaha.’

I find now that that argument was all very well – as far as it went. Such is the manner in which we are bound by our long-cherished prejudices and mental chains that it took a report by the New York Times’ Adam B. Ellick to show me what I had completely failed to notice: the music acts’ total refusal to either touch upon the topic of the Taliban, or to even acknowledge them as a concern.

Arrogancia en la clausura de la Cumbre Iberoamericana. El "rey" de España manda a callar a sus ex colonias americanas

Jefe No Electo Democráticamente Del Estado Español Se Confronta Con Jefe Electo Democráticamente Del Estado Venezolano. [English version below]

Con una actuación sin precedentes, el llamado "soberano" de España, Juan Carlos de Borbón, visiblemente enojado por las críticas de Nicaragua, Argentina y Venezuela a sectores de ese país, intentó imponer su supuesta autoridad en la Cumbre Iberoamericana realizada en Chile, al irrespetar al mandatario venezolano mandándolo a callar, como recordando las épocas de sumisión de las colonias españolas en América, luego que éste respondía con hechos históricos la actuación del ex jefe de gobierno español en el golpe de estado del 2002.

El jefe de gobierno de España, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero había reprochado a Chávez sus apreciaciones a Aznar, a lo que ha respondido el presidente venezolano apelando a su derecho a opinar, momento en el que la arrogancia imperial quiso acallar las críticas.

Juan Carlos de Borbón, rey de España -más no de Venezuela-, para nada acostumbrado a escuchar a alguien exigirle respeto, perdió los estribos y gritó: "¡¿Por qué no te callas?!", mientras, enojado, le señalaba con el dedo. La presidente chilena intentó calmar los ánimos y pedirles respetar los derechos de palabra a los mandatarios.
