AGW list epilogue

For those of you who are unaware or don’t remember. I used to curate an “AGW list”. It was a list of all the bad things that were going to happen because of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). From the 1990s through the first decade of the new millennium, the theory and worry about AGW grew […]

Interesting Data

Did you catch the dramatic headlines about ice conditions around the globe recently? No? I did, but just barely. You probably didn’t hear anything about recent ice conditions because the news is “good”, relatively speaking. Did you hear about the amount of sea ice in the arctic this year?
