2012 SkS Weekly Digest #5
Posted on 6 February 2012 by John Hartz
Kevin Trenberth's guest post, Check With Climate Scientists for Views on Climate is the response from a number of prominent climate scientsts to a letter signed by 16 scientists and engineers that was recently published in the Wall Street Journal. The "Gang of 16's" letter was also squarely addressed by Dana in The Latest Denialist Plea for Climate Change Inaction
Still Going Down the Up Escalator by Dana also garnered a lot of attention by commentors and other websites. MarkR's Measurements show Earth heating up, think tanks & newspapers disagree addressed denialist propaganda recently published in certain UK news outlets. The creative graphics embedded in the article also received attention by other websites.
