Statements by the Ecological Society of America on the proposed U.S. exit from the Paris Agreement, and on Climate Change
By withdrawing from the Paris Agreement on climate change, the United States is abdicating its role as the world leader in using sciencebased information to inform policy. Business, political, and scientific leaders the world over are condemning the decision. More … Continue reading →

`Evidence of a decline in electricity use by U.S. households’ (Prof Lucas Davis, U.C. Berkeley)
This is from a blog post by Professor Lucas Davis at his blog. In addition to the subject, that’s an interesting way of presenting a change over time I’ll need to think about: It seems the model could be used … Continue reading →

Liang, information flows, causation, and convergent crossmapping
Someone recommended the work of Liang recently in connection with causation and attribution studies, and their application to CO2 and climate change. Liang’s work is related to information flows and transfer entropies. As far as I know, the definitive work … Continue reading →

Just because the data lies sometimes doesn’t mean it’s okay to censor it
Or, there’s no such thing as an outlier … Eli put up a post titled “The Data Lies. The Crisis in Observational Science and the Virtue of Strong Theory” at his lagomorph blog. Think of it: Data lying. Obviously this … Continue reading →

On Munshi mush
(Slightly updated on 20160611.) Professor Emeritus Jamal Munshi of Sonoma State University has papers recently cited in science denier circles as evidence that the conventional associations between mean global surface temperature and cumulative carbon emissions are, well, bunk, due to … Continue reading →

“Causal feedbacks in climate change”
Today I was reviewing and rereading the nonlinear time series technical literature I have, seeking ideas on how to go about using the statistical ensemble learning technique called “boosting” with them. (See the very nice book, R. E. Schapire, Y. … Continue reading →

All I do is complain, complain …
I was reviewing a presentation given as part of a short course in the machine learning genre today, and happened across the following two bullets, under the heading “Strictly Stationary Processes”: Predicting a time series is possible if and only … Continue reading →
