SkS Weekly Digest #27

SkS Highlights

Two original articles adressing hot-button issues were posted by Dana. The first, Climategate 2.0 in Context - Solar Warming, adresses a query from Rob Wilson to Tim Osborn in 2005 regarding the solar contribution to relatively recent global warming.  The second, Temporarily Frozen Planet, Permanently Frozen Objectivity, deals with a set of myths and misconceptions recently promulgated by Nigel Lawson, a British former conservative politician and journalist.
