Irregular Climate 16: a leak for all seasons

Posted on 22 December 2010 by John Cook

Tis the season to do podcasts! Another climate podcast emerges in the week before Christmas as Dan Moutal posts Irregular Climate Episode 16. This week: What happens in Cancun stays in Cancun, policy proposals from a crazy podcaster, FoxNewsgate, and Wikileaks. I get another opportunity to wax eloquent (well, in my case not so much eloquent as stuttering and rambling) about The Scientific Guide to Global Warming Skepticism (and this time, I didn't accuse any Skeptical Science contributors of being nitpickers).

  1. Not to pick nits or anything but it seems like your "The Climate Show #4" post doesn't appear in your feed. It's not just my feed reader - I "manually" (with wget) downloaded the feed.xml file, opened it in an editor and searched for "Climate Show" and "#4".

    Commenting here rather than on the post in question so anybody else who relies on the feed can see the comment and maybe throw some light.

    Response: I found posts with YouTube code broke the XML feed so I exclude any posts with embedded YouTube movies. If anyone has some tech tips on how to resolve this in a better manner, please don't hesitate to let me know :-)
