Miriam O’Brien says: Why did the water in the kettle boil? Because it got hot!

New Post at HotWhopper.  Miriam apparently doesn’t think it’s appropriate to present deep global ocean warming in terms of temperature in a discussion of global temperatures.

My Temporary Pseudonym wuwt.fan.4.6.years – A Little Deception Went a Long Way

A reblog from my other blog.

# # #

UPDATE: On each of the threads here, where I used the pseudonym, I’ve added the following to the first comment by wuwt.fan.4.6.years:

[When reading comments on this thread by wuwt.fan.4.6.years, keep in mind my post My Temporary Pseudonym wuwt.fan.4.6.years – A Little Deception Went a Long Way.]

Bob Tisdale - Climate Observations

For those of you following comments of wuwt.fan.4.6.years on the “Bob Tisdale gets into a spot of hot water” thread at HotWhopper (archived link to most recent version), I have an announcement. I am (was) wuwt.fan.4.6.years. That is, I’ve been using wuwt.fan.4.6.years as a temporary pseudonym.  My apologies to those here who think it was underhanded, but as you can see, I was able to comment at HotWhopper for quite some time before Miriam O’Brien finally pulled the plug.   It was fun while it lasted, but, to tell the truth, it was extremely awkward commenting back and forth with myself (examples here).

Rest assured that was my last time using a pseudonym.  I would much rather blog as me, but there are places where I am not welcome.  I just wanted to try it.

Cheers and enjoy your holiday.
