However it seems to have been a success:
We are about to hit 27,000 32,000 total trackable blog posts, and our current estimate is that together we reached at least 17 million people today. We are also about to exceed 12,000 registered bloggers on the site and are working to get all of you who posted but haven’t yet registered into the final count.
The numbers are not huge in global terms. Maybe that reflects on the general level of interest in Climate Change worldwide – or maybe not. I don’t know of a good statistical source for this.
But since the aim was to increase awareness (even temporarily), it appears to have worked.
As I didn’t post, I’d recommend Jim Prall (an occasional commenter here). I don’t share his optimism, but that is just my personal opinion – and his blog deserves recognition if only because of his Herculean efforts at documenting and analysing who is saying what.

Comments that are not relevant to the post that they appear under or the evolving discussion will simply be deleted, as will links to Denier spam known to be scientific gibberish.
- The “Mostly” Open Thread is for general climate discussion that is not relevant to a particular post. Spam and abuse rules still apply;
- The “Challenging the Core Science” Comment Thread is for comments that purport to challenge the core science of anthropogenic climate change.
