New site: Climate Debate Daily.

Denis Dutton has gone and done it again.  You should already be familiar with his Arts & Letters Daily site -- compulsory browsing at least once a week for anyone who uses the web for something more than just hooking up on Facebook.  Now he's collaborating in a new project that seems just as likely to be on every thinking web user's list of essential reading: Climate Debate Daily, a regular summation of the latest news and writing from both the sceptical and warmist sides of the global warming debate.

Bookmark it now.  Here's some top reading from each camp currently appearing on the front page:

  • Better for Australia to cut the panic and build “a strong economy and thus the adaptive capacity to deal with whatever catastrophes unaided nature may have in store for us”...continue »


  1. Thank you!

  2. Global warming, that's what we want here in Wellington!

    According to The Dominion Post, we're the sunniest of the five main centres (AKL, WGN, CHC, Dunedin and Hamilton), and apart from the occasional heavy rainfall, the weather has been very good, exceptional by Welly standards.
