LEARN REAL CLIMATE SCIENCE
For You (Prof Ole Humlum) - a beautiful website
to learn real Climate Science
Warming Science - a beautiful source for the
real Climate Science, tackling the issues misrepresented
CO2 and Global Warming (Jaworowski & Segalstad)
- top scientists, brilliant science on the key
SKEPTIC INFO PORTALS
- news from all skeptic sources, plus library
with prime websites and some important articles/papers
Warming Science - ALSO a brilliant portal
for links to good skeptics' websites and good
NEUTRAL INFO SOURCE
Debate Daily Headlines, balanced exactly between
Consensus and Skeptics, + excellent long list
(AGW) "ANSWERS TO SKEPTICS"
- these are included because
- skeptics need to know what the "consensus"
believes and argues, before they can possibly
claim to know better
- skeptics need to know of "straw man"
arguments commonly used by "consensus"
to prove skeptics are mistaken

AGW-MANAGED, NAME-CALLING HAPPENS
- prime pro-AGW blog - links only to other pro-CAGW

AGW-MANAGED BUT MORE COURTEOUS &
OPEN TO DEBATE
Science The best of consensus-managed open
debate - which unfortunately does not say much
to talk to a Climate Skeptic Open to courteous
comments from all sides and contain some interesting
dialogue, despite the dismissive titles
SKEPTIC-MANAGED, AND VERY OPEN TO DEBATE,
- prime meeting-place for skeptics - links to
blogs both pro and anti - all courteous relevant
posts are accepted, AGW or skeptic
SKEPTIC-MANAGED, COURTEOUS, AND OPEN
TO ONLINE SCIENCE (STATISTICS)
Audit - first-class blog, science actually
happens here - links to blogs both pro and anti
Note that there is rather
more openness, pursuit of science, and courtesy
on the sceptics' blogs than can be found
on the consensus blogs, in general. Of course
there are exceptions and nobody is perfect.
But the science is what we need.
Be aware too that although
the consensus are quick to cry "oil-funded!"
to skeptics, more often the reverse is the
case, namely that skeptics cannot get funding
at all, and certainly not from oil companies
who don't want their name tarred any further;
moreover, there is seldom mention of oil
or other big businesses that are known funders
of the "consensus"; often, name-calling
simply hides the lack of investigation of
the science itself.
