A Look Ahead
This is the final issue of the SkS Weekly Digest for calendar year 2011. Next week's issue will be first of the new 2012 SkS Weekly Digest series. It will contain a new section, Issue of the Week, designed to engage SkS readers in an open discussion of a specified topical issue. The Coming Soon section will be enhanced to include a brief description of each article in the SkS pipeline in addtion to title and author.
In your opinion, what other changes should be made to the weekly digest in order to make it more informative and useful to you?
In his ususal no nonsense, analytic style, Dana seperated the wheat from the chaff found in a recent news release by John Chritsy and Roy Spencer. Dana's hard-hitting article was posted in two-parts: UAH Misrepresentation Anniversary, Part 1 - Overconfidence and UAH Misrepresentation Anniversary, Part 2 - Of Cherries and Volcanoes. The first part of Mark R's two-part retropsective article, 2011 Year in Review (part 1) , was posted and the second part will be posted this coming week.
