BPSDBIt has been almost a month since Honestpoet did me the singular honour of making me the recipient of the Woody Guthrie Award (presented to A Thinking Blogger). I am very late in acknowledging this honour and making the presentation to another blog for several reasons, one of them being the timing of my absence discussed under Houskeeping).

I am in Awe of you

All of you who blog for climate and social justice. Your passion, commitment, knowledge, insight, creativity and basic insanity humbles me every day.

drunk-visionBPSDBAs threatened earlier it is time for Vox Populi again, more blog rating and classifying. The reasons for doing this are explained in Vox Populi I so I won’t belabour that.

Personally I do not find many blogrolls and link lists are as helpful as I think they are intended to be. In most cases they have too many links with no indication of how to distinguish them. Moreover, they almost inevitably reward “Aaron’s Aardvark” Blog by being alphabetical.

And of course now I am falling into the same trap, and I am doing so for the alone-against-the-windsame reasons everyone else does, viz you want people to know about the good blogs, but there’s just too damn many of them (or not enough, depending on your point of view).

The Coming Ice Age

The Coming Ice Age

Notes from the blogosphere

  • New Denier1 Memes
  • One Dead Meme (we hope)
  • More ‘Global Cooling’ debunked (and quantifying crackpots)
  • Confusing the Global Warming Signal

New Denier Memes

1)  “We prevented the next ice age”

The Way Things Break barely got the prediction posted and the meme was already taking off.  This one springs from a new study that the earth was headed for a new ice age … in 10,000 years. Luckily climate change may save us. (more…)
