Other August numbers are out

I’ve been busy with many things, including the sunspot story, and hadn’t gotten around to publishing my blog numbers for August yet. But with the release of RSS data above, it seemed like a good time.

WUWT continues to see growth, and a new record for traffic was set again this month: 667,214 views.

I don’t have the “adjusted” numbers, feel free to apply any alogorithm you wish to obtain them.

As always, thanks to all of you, my readers, volunteer moderators, contributors and guest posters, and those who contribute with ideas, assistance, and support.

Very impressive Anthony. If more uninitiated readers out there are as interested in your posts as I am, then I’m sure those numbers will continue to rise. Keep up the hard work, we all DO appreciate it!

Congrats on the continued and well deserved growth. Keep up the fine quality and more will discover the world of ideas you have to offer.

I agree with the above.
your site and climate audit have become a daily visit for me.
It has been a pleasure to find numerous voices of sanity and reason in amongst the AGW storm that still blankets the MSM.

Leon Brozyna (21:06:34) comments: herewith endorsed. The whole world owes you, Anthony.
REPLY: Thanks for the kind words but I’m owed nothing. I do this because I enjoy it. -Anthony

Great work Anthony, any updates on the AIRS CO2 satellite data?

Anthony, a few posts of mine got “binned” on your RSS temperature data posting. Can you or a mod fish them out and repost them. I know, I posted three times in a row, a no-no apparently. But I wanted most of all to share this.
It’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack. The Hockey Stick liveth again! LOL

Congrats… hope to see you break that million mark soon, because the more people who visit, the more who are learning the truth.

Great blog Anthony, you are bringing science back into to the ‘heated’ discussion.

September 4, 2008 1:21 am

What boosted your site in jan 2008 ,was it the nasa millenium bug story?
coz then you will have to sent Hansen a thank-you note (or flowers, or maybe the book statisctics for dummy`s)

Thank you Anthony. Please keep giving us the DATA so we can made our own mind. Sorry to see so many pro CO2 drives the climate people not commenting. I guess they can handle the facts.

Not bad for summertime when people are normally outside more.

Your website… Quadrupling in visitors this year, wow, and I’m one… thanks eventually to Al Gore and the tiny number of intrepid doubters at that point, who opened the door to me to the size of the hidden nonsense, the non-consensus.
Thank you again. I’t so nice to see real weather. And understand about possible cooling ahead.
Can I suggest again, that with increasing numbers, perhaps a place on the top of your website to enable real newcomers to read up the basics of the skeptics position, might be a good idea. I’ve done this primer which has links to several other primers like those of Ric Werme, Ken Gregory, James Peden and Alan Cheetham , so people can choose, and this annotated list of basic info websites to open the door. My pages may not be perfect but they seem better than nothing, and – most important – you need primers that are adequate and easy of access to get a full overview. I did them for people to use and I’d be glad to pass them on, improve them if you ask, whatever it takes.

Congratulations. As someone has said, it’s a breath of fresh air, especially compared to every day’s stories on the BBC, the UK newspapers and opening New Scientist every week and finding it full of AGW propaganda (not sure where the “Science” bit is anymore). I send letters to New Scientist almost every week, but all to no avail.

September 4, 2008 6:50 am

I’ve only been visiting a few weeks, but I enjoy the site. I haven’t posted because there is quite a bit to read and quite a lot to digest. But it is interesting and mentally-stimulating reading. Thank you for your efforts.

I don’t know if we can credit WUWT for the following story, but (whether he admits it or not) Anthony has raised the awareness on many climate issues.
I was quite astonished to read it, considering the source.
Rev., you have done us a great service. Thanks.

It’s global web runnaway. When the tipping point is reached, every single web view will be to WUWT. It will be catastrophic.

Phil Bratby, I’ve just stopped buying the New Scientist and have e-mailed them several times why – their AGW editorial stance. They are a disgrace.

I’m a college freshman who was introduced to your blog by a friend, I’ve become a daily reader and I thank you for your daily updates! I can’t say I understand all the technical advanced statistics but I can understand the ideas and commentary from the comments enough to give my professor a run for his money. Thanks! I hold my breath every month for those temp data releases and I’ve learned to question things such as the widely popularized GISS and other facets of half truths that are presented to us as propaganda. I am a converted AGW believer, but only because back in school when they taught us about global warming I was much less inclined to argue and seek truth than I am now.

Keep up the good work.

Quality stories and good discussion go a long way! Congrats Anthony!

September 4, 2008 10:06 am

Gee, I don’t know, that’s two months in a row where the readership increase has been declining (i.e. negative 2nd derivative). Fortunately no one here would ever remark over a single month’s or even two or three months’ data. 🙂
When the NH is freezing its collective butts off this winter and it’s too cold to go outside skiing, I expect there will be some impressive readership numbers here. The posts about sunspots will still have small numbers inside them, though.

September 4, 2008 10:11 am

To add to “all the above” well deserved comments:
Anthony, thanks for the time and effort that you, and those helping you, do in maintaining this “GREAT” and informitive site.

September 4, 2008 10:14 am

Do you realise that yours is now THE MOST POPULAR CLIMATE BLOG?!
Go to alexa.com and you can compare, and see that realclimate is in decline (hoorah!), climateaudit is rising (good) but you are the top, see image at
REPLY: Well that’s a big claim, and it may or may not be true. There are lots of others not listed. such as the AccuWeather or the Weather Underground blogs, which may have higher numbers, then there’s the blogs like DeSmog and Grist and NYT’s Dot Earth which must surely have higher numbers. I haven’t looked, but while I thank you for the kudos, I don’t think the claim can be made without looking at broader data. – Anthony

Not only does WUWT offer up informative articles but the comment dialog is polite and manages to be entertaining and interesting too.
Thanks to everyone! Er, perhaps especially those ogres with the ax, whacking trolls.

This is a graph showing global warming, right? So just how many “views” are there in a degree Celsius?

I get RSS feeds for both WUWT and CA. I hadn’t read for a few days, and CA had about 250 unread posts, WUWT had over 650….

September 7, 2008 8:47 pm

I can understand the ideas and commentary from the comments enough to give my professor a run for his money.
Hit ’em with the oceanic-atmospheric multidecadal cycles (the “big six” PDO, AMO, NAO, IPO, AO, AAO), which flipped from cool to warm, one at a time, from 1977 – 2001. (And, guess what, the temperatures rose a little bit.) You know the global temperature story since then.
And now the PDO is gone cold (with the AO and NAO showing signs of following, both ahead of expected schedule).
Those cycles hadn’t even been discovered by science until ten years after Hansen’s infamous 1998 speech. (One wonders if the AGW movement would have had the same political buckshot if they had.
