Jennifer Francis on Rolling 13

What a subjective, unfounded list of unscientific assertions.

I hope she's getting paid well.

> subjective, unfounded

On the off-chance that's not a bot behind that anonymicity, one reply, this one:
Oh, do you then actually claim you made some effort to find and read the citations?

Or are you pretending to be dumbfounded because a video file lacks the accompanying reference material anyone who can read and think would be used to finding?

You're used to getting the basis for assertions found in -- let me guess -- your thinktank reference collection?

Get out of the ignoramus consensus for a bit.

Make the effort to actually look these assertions up for yourself.

You know how they can be found.

And get yourself a name for gossake, if you're not a bot, you look so silly standing there in your undowear trying to be taken seriously. Or perhaps not.

The references to events as happpening in Southeast Alaska that Dr. Francis notes early in her talk really occurred in Southcentral, around the “arm pit” of the North Pacific, rather than the coastal strip “pan handle” of Southeastern.

She's going to give Willard Tony a sad because of all those pictures of polar bears. Otherwise it was a really good lecture explaining why Willard Tony is a fool.

Could it be that Eli has chosen this moment to make reference to the admirable Dr Francis in view of the paper by Petoukhova, Rahmstorf, Petri, and Schellnhuber that's just appeared in PNAS:

Somebunnies, not Eli to be sure, might think this could produce a little spat over the carrot-credits, as co-author Hans Joachim Schellnhuber has said this work, ". . complements previous research that already linked such phenomena to climate change, but did not yet identify a mechanism behind it”:

But as of today this has been revised to, “(Our research) complements previous research that already linked such phenomena to climate change”. Indeed in the very same article Jennifer Francis herself is quoted helping explain the import of this line of work:

So happily the bunnies minds can be at ease in the knowledge that harmony prevails in the vital work of discovering the relations between climate change and extreme weather.
