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.

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.
