Okay, folks. This is an open thread. It is also a test of email posting. If it works I will be able to continue posting from China. So let’s hope for the best.
Back a couple of years ago I bestowed Blogger of the Year awards. The first one went to Steve McIntyre and the second to Gavin Schmidt (he performed heroically at Real Climate right after Climategate).
I didn’t give the award to anyone last year, in part because I was busy but in part because it seems clear that climate change has been well enough explored that what we’re doing now is just re-reporting headlines and repeating our fixed opinions on the themes and minor subjects involved.
So let’s do something different. I am accepting nominations for Climate Commenter of the Year, from mid-2012 to mid-2013. Feel free to nominate yourself, but also consider other commenters on both sides of the issue.
Now if I can figure out how to post pictures, charts and files using email I will feel fully functional. Next post will come to you from another continent, if it comes at all. So have fun here and play nicely amongst yourselves.
