Updates to come.
[Edited to add: I realize, of course that such a talking point isn’t itself “new”. Rather, I am waiting to see how long it takes this particular study to reinvigorate it. Furthermore, in case it isn’t obvious from the tone of my post or those contacted for comment on the study, I absolutely don’t agree that the argument carries any weight. As has been mentioned in the links, the model has a bias towards large, stable sheets, and we are talking about a long, long time in the future by civilization’s standards.]
[UPDATE: Dot Earth has picked this up, and notes that:
[the study] stirred a lot of skepticism in the community of specialists examining ancient records of past climate changes and how they might relate to variations in Earth’s orbit and orientation toward the Sun and other factors. I’ll be adding some of their reactions overnight.
So far nothing from the usual suspects.]
[LATE UPDATE: Dot Earth has some reactions from the community and they range from mildly intrigued to overtly hostile (e.g. Wunsch)].
[UPDATE: Well, I guess it’s finally hitting the denialosphere. First hit on a Google blog search is from “An Honest Climate Debate: Exposing the truth about the Man-Made Climate Change theory” (Orwell would approve!). More to come. I’ll just add them to the bottom of the post without updating if they get to be too numerous.]
