The Arctic Sea Ice Bucket Challenge
September 18, 2014
Ok, I’m a little slow getting this together, but it seems to be getting some traction.
So I get this email from Jason Box, basically throwing down a gauntlet and challenging my all-around manliness if I don’t follow his example in doing something stupid.
Well, that wouldn’t be the first time. Ok, I’ll bite.
Jason challenged me, as well as Dana Nuccitelli of the Guardian and John Cook of Skeptical Science to dump icy water on our heads – while mumbling some weak Euro-trash excuse about why he doesn’t actually have any ice in his bucket.
I’ve been pretty busy, but managed finally to put a response together, and here it is.
John Cook is still MIA, citing his being in England, where its much too cold for an Aussie to engage in chilly activities. I think he’ll come around.
And now we have a response to Dana from Scientist Kevin Cowtan – below
and finally, the original instigator, Andy Lee Robinson, here.
as well as his famous Arctic Death Spiral Graph.
