“All the junk that’s fit to debunk”

This site has an excellent daily collection of links to articles from the popular press, journal articles, blogs and analysis.  Although any scientific topic is fair game, JunkScience leans heavily toward debunking dubious global warming, climate change and environmental science

Climate Science

This is the web site of Roger Pielke, Sr., Senior Research Scientist, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), University of Colorado in Boulder Professor Emeritus of the Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University, Fort Collins.

Pielke deals mostly with discussions of peer reviewed journal articles concerning climate and climate change.  This site will appeal to those who want their climate science served up with solid research and without political rhetoric.

Watts Up With That?

This is the 2008 winner of the “Best Science Blog” issued by the Weblog Awards.  Anthony Watts is a meteorologist who has a 10 KW solar array on his home and drives an electric car. Despite this, he has become a world leader of people that are skeptical about the magnitude of anthropogenic climate change and its dire consequences.  He is also a leader surfacestations.org, with the goal of surveying every USHNC weather station in the United states, which has revealed the sorry state of US temperature data over the last hundred years.

Climate Audit

This is Steve McIntyre’s blog.  As the name implies, Climate Audit concentrates on statistical analysis of data presented in journal articles, alarmist blog claims, etc.  McIntyre is half of the McIntyre and McKitrick dynamic duo that brought down the “hockey stick.”

CO2 Science

The mission statement at CO2 Science says that they present a “weekly online publication of its CO2 Science magazine, which contains editorials on topics of current concern and mini-reviews of recently published peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, books, and other educational materials.”  And they attempt  ” to separate reality from rhetoric in the emotionally-charged debate that swirls around the subject of carbon dioxide and global change.”  The  best features of CO2 Science are their frequent journal reviews, and their subject index, which makes zeroing in on useful, organized information a fast job.  A new issue is published each Wednesday.

The Reference Frame

This is a really cool blog by Czech physicist Lubos Molt.  The Reference Frame won the 2008 Weblog Award for Best European Blog with good reason.  Motl ‘s posts cover a wide range of topics, including  pure science, scientific culture, the intersection of science and politics,  etc., with frequent insights concerning global warming alarmism.

    Global Warming Science


  2. Thanks so much for this information. I’m a retired chemical engineer and was never asked my opinion on greenhouse gas theory. In fact, I don’t think most engineers were asked. We are too practical and actually try to analyze the data ourselves. The ice core data is a pretty good solubility data set. How CO2 can control temperature is still a mystery to me. Such a minor atom in the atmosphere and doesn’t undergo any phase change. Whereas water is very abundant and controls temperatures in all aspects of our lives by evaporating, condensing and freezing.
    As you may have noticed, I am a denier if science. At least dumb science. Our numbers are increasing though as all greenhouse gas based models incorrectly predict temperatures.
    I will keep exploring your website. Thanks again.
    BTW, I wonder why CNN doesn’t cover the topics you bring to light. Hmmm.
