Top climate blogs (and other useful climate sites)
("WUWT") is the indispensible blog site of climatologist Anthony Watts, and the #1 climate blog
on the Internet. He's a prominent "climate skeptic." WUWT has a very comprehensive collection
of climate-related news, and other resources, such as
Sealevel.info webmaster Dave Burton has contributed to
a few of the articles there, and posted
- RealClimate.org ("RC") was the top Climate Movement ("alarmist") blog, but activity there has diminished.
- DailyClimate.org and
two news-aggregator sites for climate-related articles. (They're both firmly in the alarmist camp,
and cheerleaders for the wind and solar “renewable” power industries, but the sites
are nevertheless useful.)
- UK-based TheGWPF.org (the "Global Warming Policy Foundation") is led by Dr. Benny Peiser, and an all-star Academic Advisory Council.
- Climate Central is another major Climate Movement ("alarmist") site.
- WoodForTrees.org is
Paul Clark's very useful web site for analysis and interactive graphing of climate temperature
data. (See the Resources page for other similar tools.)
- ClimateData.info is also a useful resource, with many climate-related graphs & statistics.
- ClimateAudit.org is the blog site of Canadian mathematician Steve McIntyre, "the man who busted Mann's Hockey Stick."
- Australian Joanne Nova ("JoNova") is always insightful.
- So is another Australian, Dr. Jennifer Marohasy.
- So is Prof. Judith Curry, whose blog is called "Climate Etc."
- The Blackboard is Lucia Liljegren's excellent climate blog.
- WorldClimateReport.com is "The Web's Longest-Running Climate Change Blog." Its chief editor is climatologist Patrick J. Michaels.
- IceCap.us is also excellent.
- So is Bob Tisdale's Climate Observations blog.
- So is Bishop Hill.
- So is Paul Homewood's "Not A Lot Of People Know That" blog.
- So is Tom Moriarty's ClimateSanity blog, and Tom has done a lot of excellent sea-level analysis work.
- So are Thomas Fuller's Lukewarmer's Way and 3000 Quads blogs.
- So is Kevin Marshall's ManicBeancounter blog.
- So is Climate Change Dispatch (CCD).
- So is Ron Clutz's Science Matters blog.
- So is Warren Meyer's climate-skeptic.com
- I don't know who "UC" is, but he (or she) is very sharp. He has a blog here
(moved from here),
but it has, unfortunately, been inactive for the last couple of years.
- a-sceptical-mind.com is similar: good, but
anonymous, and dormant. For some articles the current versions are broken, but older, archived versions are intact
- Popular Technology
specializes in archives of skeptical climate resources, such as a list of
100 articles from the 1970s about the global cooling scare, and a list of over 1350
peer-reviewed papers expressing skepticism about various aspects of the global warming scare.
- German Rudolf Kipp has analyzed (in German)
the results of the adjustments of the ESA and Colorado satellite sea level data. His conclusion:
"Even though the [satellite-measured] sea level rise rate has decreased over the years, the rate of sea level rise was kept more or less constant at above 3 mm/year by applying various adjustments."

- On the Left (gloves-off): most Climate Movement (alarmist) blogs are censored to limit dissent
(Yale Climate Forum, SeaMonster, DeSmogBlog, SkepticalScience, Tamino, etc.).
found one which is not: Peter Sinclair's Climate Crocks.
3/16/2014 Update: I'm sorry to report that Climate Crocks is now censored, too. If anyone knows of a
high-activity Climate Movement (alarmist) blog which permits uncensored polite dissent, please send me an email.
2/3/2015 1/12/2016 Update: I've stumbled across a few low-activity possibilities:
Steve Carson's Science Of Doom,
Tamsin Edwards' All Models Are Wrong,
or (less likely) Ken Rice's And Then There's Physics (formerly WottsUpWithThat). Perhaps one of them will prove to
be an exception to the heavy-handed censorship prevelant at alarmist climate blogs.
- On the Right (gloves-off): the Real Science
and Real Climate Science blogs of Tony Heller (a/k/a Steve Goddard)
provide a nice counterbalance to Climate Crocks. Tony takes on NASA's sea-level team
- Mike Haseler has a very comprehensive list of climate blogs.
- See also: our “Resources” page; some of the sites listed there are blogs, too.
