You ask, I provide. Glossary of climate terms now online.

Anthony, I enjoy perusing your site most days, and I’ve learned a lot.  Any subject that carries this much political, social, and/or cultural baggage deserves all the skepticism it gets.  Count me a skeptic.  I was wondering, being rather new to this issue, if you could compile and post an “acronym definition” page on your site.  There are so many, and it’s hard for a newbie to keep all the organizations, measurement devices, networks, etc. straight.  Just a suggestion.

Done! I had been considering this for some time, and Evan Jones gave me a head-start. Your request made so much sense that it seemed the right time to do this. I added some relevant to this blog plus many more that came to me courtesy of Evan’s post.

See the Glossary link on the toolbar under the cloud header picture. There’s a comment form to suggest additions or changes. Please use it – Anthony

Who knows, maybe after the dust clears we’ll have a Revalued Error Variance (REV) to add to the list.

Or maybe the Anthony Watts Offset Level?
REPLY: Evan, thanks but I don’t need things named after me. Just finding the real data is reward enough.

I hadn’t noticed–I’ll go back a look.
It is something I have longed-for.
Is “WUWT” in there?
REPLY: Well even I don’t know what “WUWT” is, so please cite a reference.

WUWT? Just a WAG, but I’d say Watts Up With That?

Think, Rev, think!
LS: Heh!
