Your Memories on Facebook
Judith, we care about you and the memories you share here. We thought you’d like to look back on this post from 6 years ago.

I’ve just launched my new blog Climate Etc. Stop by and leave a comment, so I can practice being a blog moderator. My first technical post will be live monday afternoon, on hurricanes.
This blog provides a forum for the exchange of ideas about climate science and the science-policy interface. Climate Etc. is envisioned as a gathering place for climate researchers, academics and technical experts from other fields, citizen scientists, and the interested public. Open minds and crit…
2010 blog posts
A walk down memory lane. Actually, I suspect that only a fraction of you were reading my blog back in 2010.
A few highlights from the first two months:
- Hurricanes and global warming: 5 years post Katrina
- Recent challenges to the credibility of climate science
- The uncertainty monster
- What can we learn from climate models?
- What constitutes dangerous climate change?
- Heresy and the creation of monsters
- Decision making under climate uncertainty

Then versus now
Looking back I am astonished by the large number of meaty blog posts I wrote during the first year.
I guess I was a little more motivated and had more to say back then (that I hadn’t already said). After 1000+ blog posts, I still have plenty to say (believe it or not), but somehow I have less time now (why that is will be the subject of a future post). My apologies to those of you who are queued for guest posts.
But more significantly, the climate debate has changed. My posts in 2010 were provocative in the extreme; these same ideas seem more mainstream now (I guess that is progress).
