It’s the beginning of the end. Watch the Giant with Feet of Clay crumble. A train wreck in slow motion. There’s more sense being said about AR5 than would have been imaginable eighteen months ago when drafts were available. In fact some of the media coverage (e.g. Newsnight) has been jaw-droppingly almost balanced in both invited participants and the line of questioning.
As the CAGW frenzy whipped up by the overstatement of zealous believers and compliant shut down of debate in the media was increasingly untenable, reasoned debate has begun to happen and the imperative ‘need’ to blog melted away.
Normal life has taken over, or, I should say, has resumed at last.
No, I’m not entirely done with blogging, but I’m shocked to find 10 ideas for posts in drafts with the last post on 28th July. In the interim, there’s been (in order): a major deadline at work, a family holiday, an accident with a close relative hospitalised (but now home and mobile again), illness (me, short term, now recovered), another major deadline at work, lots of home DIY and a significant family birthday. Blogging just not important anymore.
And more than that – I’m bored with the climate debate. It seems as if it’s all been said before. But. as they say, ‘It’s not over ’til the fat lady sings’.
