It has been several months since we’ve had an open thread like this, so it is high time for another.
The first issue of the new journal Nature Climate Change has been launched, the first month is freely downloadable. My reaction to the first issue is that many of the articles have less meat/depth than many blog posts on the more serious blogs. There is an interesting article entitled “Data on demand” that is definitely worth reading “Climate scientists are under pressure to make their data — and their methods — more openly available, both to fellow scientists and the public. Now, open-access climate science is becoming easier than ever.”
AGW Observer has assembled links to an interesting group of papers on geoengineering.
Climate Central has a post on climate change and agriculture.
In case you’ve never visited this site, Climate Law Blog has some interesting posts.
Dotearth has a reasonable post about the kerfuffle regarding the Berkeley Earth project and Muller’s testimony. I don’t really get what all the angst was about. Muller was asked to testify about the integrity of the climate data and the process by which these datasets were assembled. His testimony addressed these issues, based on what he know from his preliminary analysis. On this subject, Digging in the Clay has a post entitled “An indication of the growth of station bias?”
No Frakking Consensus has a post entitled “IPCC Insider’s Club”
Let me know if you’ve spotted anything else of interest.
