Of note – WUWT on WordPress top posts

Apparently there’s a lot of interest in inverted proxy cum hockey stick data. WUWT’s post…

IQ Test: Which of these is not upside down?

…placed second overall on WordPress blogs worldwide, even beating CNN. The only post higher rated with traffic was WordPress own internal announcement post about Twitter (which every blogger sees when they login).

In WordPress perspective, as they list on their main page:

The best of 244,660 bloggers, 177,719 new posts, 218,847 comments, & 45,327,262 words today on WordPress.com.

WUWT came in at #11 for blogs overall seen here: http://botd.wordpress.com/ Most of the other contenders are fluff or entertainment news. Though I confess I do like Hack-A-Day and read it on occasion.

For all my critics and their disparaging words, I must be doing something right, because WUWT is the only blog with science content to be in the top 20 of WordPress.

Congratulations ! Let’s hope the right people are reading it . Thanks (once again) for all the good work .

WOW! (am I the second to post too?)

PS. Anthony, did you ever get the new pics of the Yosemite weather station I sent? Looks worse than before.
REPLY: No never did please resend! – Anthony

The hockey stick shaped number of readers continues and the recognition is well deserved. Your blog is greatly appreciated – where else would we go if it didn’t exist?

Well done! Keeping up the momentum nicely.

Sam the Skeptic

I see no reason to be surprised at this, Anthony.
Truth will always out eventually and I think we’re probably entitled to a little schadenfreude now and again as well.
My first port of call continues to be WUWT!

The interesting question here is whether the MSM is doing itself a service by promoting AGW alarmism. They are following an old script (fear is good) but it’s a new game. WUWT for me has much greater credibility than the MSM on AGW and an increasing number of people are coming to that view.

Listen to me and you shall hear, news hath not been this thousand year:
Since Herod, Caesar, and many more, you never heard the like before.
Holy-dayes are despis’d, new fashions are devis’d.
Old Christmas is kickt out of Tow
Yet let’s be content, and the times lament, you see the world turn’d upside down.

Science isn’t a democracy.

Thanks you Anthony once again for running this blog. Marxism taught us that only human masses create the history, but they were wrong – sometimes one strong individual will launch the avalanche.
S!

Congratulations and thank you for the work you are doing! How you manage I have no idea, but I hope you are able to maintain the quality of the many posts here. Focus on the science as you do.
Well done indeed!

Ron de Haan

Very good news.
You are doing fine, please continue.
Thanks

You’ve changed my view of the world and turned a sheep into a radical

“..Marxism taught us that only human masses create the history, but they were wrong – sometimes one strong individual will launch the avalanche..”
I think that Marx expected strong leaders to begin the revolution. He and Engels wrote in the Manifesto “..’ . . . a small section of the ruling class cuts itself adrift, and joins the revolutionary class . . . in particular, a portion of the bourgeois ideologists.’
He was expecting leadership and direction from the class which had always provided it, but going in a different direction. Do you see Anthony as Lenin, or Trotsky…? 🙂

Its better than we thought!!! 🙂

I’m still waiting for the BBC to have the integrity and courage to mention WUWT and Climate Audit in the light that you guys deserve.

I think the moustache is more Lenin, but the hair is definitely more Trotsky.

Re:”science is not a democracy”.
Nor is global warming hysteria a science.

Mike Bryant

I think it is noteworthy that there was a hue and cry, and many saying they would abandon this blog because you published, “Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty in Copenhagen, Claims British Lord Monckton “.
I believe that most of them did not stop reading, and in fact you gained readership.
Integrity is easily recognized, and Anthony and crew have it in spades.
Thanks,
Mike Bryant

John Graham

As a new reader its great to see I have found the best!

The truth about our climate will shake the world to it’s core.

Congratulations
I like the humour on the site mixed with the egghead stuff.
Although algebra jokes have always whooshed over my head. 🙂

Boudu

Congratulations. Keep it up !

Congratulations!
BTW, ref. Mike Bryant (14:23:36) : “Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty in Copenhagen, Claims British Lord Monckton“
Lord M was only doing what the warmist willies advocate: don’t let the facts get in the way of scaring the p out of your audience. He had a couple of carefully placed qualifiers starting with “If…”

rbateman

Keep it up, Anthony. The more folks you can get to look outside thier window and question what is going on, the better off this country will be.

Congratulations. You helped me open my eyes, and you’re doing the same for many others–keep it up!

“Science is not a democracy”
The Wright brothers were bicycle mechanics.
Albert Enstein was a patent clerk.
Science, at its core, is about testing one’s hypotheses against observations, and in a perfect world it’s the guy who comes along with the better data that wins.
It is not a democracy, it is (or should be) a meritocracy.
Not an oligarchy of insiders.

a) s/Enstein/Einstein
b) s/the better data that wins./the better data that wins. Until someone comes along with still better research.

John Wright

Go on! Do let it go to your head… Well, not too long.

Congratulations, and well deserved. I’ve learnt an absolute pile from this site. Here’s looking forward to more great articles in the future

Gordon Ford

Congratulations. Only one small step to go.
WUWT is one site that information and opinions can be shared without (to much) rancor!!!

The power of fame.

Actually, I’ve seen WUWT at the top several times. I don’t know if this is a different competition but in the past format on WordPress Anthony made top blog probably 3 times a week. tAV made the top 100 once but that was because of a WUWT link! hehehe.
Thanks for giving Gavin and Tamino heartburn.

With that many readers, perhaps you’d better simplify the comment section? How about a field with ten tick-boxes with ready made comments? I would click on the “Keep up the good job!” box, while other may prefer the “I hope you rot in hell!” box. I’m sure other readers can come up with a great number of interesting alternatives…

Tyler

Celebrate when everyone agrees with you.
However congratulations, you have one of the few places where facts, real science, and challenging thinking still matter.

May I correct: that “sometimes” should be “ALWAYS”. After that strong individual are the ones who find him right and his fight just so we choose to follow him.

Congrats Anthony but it is no surprise to me that you would rise to the top.
May the Lord reward you and your staff with enough cold weather to seal your victory.

Capn Jack Walker

At least some Good News.
Congratulations.
In Australia, the Liberal Party of Australia has indicated a willingness to negotiate on an Emissions Trading System. It is a convoluted lite solution. But as it was bullied thru by a Merchant banker of one term we all know it’s not about the Cimate but derivative products, and this is possibly the only reason he was endorsed over a sitting member to begin with. The grand scam. It leaves a lot of people with no where to vote.
The common sense postion even if your are a warmer is to wait for Copenhagen to fizz.
A lot of people are lsitening to their electorates though and they realize this could be the thing that destroys that party.
Anyway quality journalism always works the reward is audience share.
I thank all the contributors to this blog, making it a place to truly think thru issues from data and good starting theory and hypothesis.

Trey

Thank you to WUWT! Not suprised that more people are finding the site. Seen a lot of links and mentions to your site recently. Been enjoying it myself for quite some time. Thanks for what you do!

Such inconvenient count of hits.
Such inconvenient raise of awareness.
Though it’s worse than they thought it would be,
It’s just ‘fad’ it’s not trend-ness.

p.s. I know, kinda bumpy read, not as witty as evan or Lucy.

Re: Symon (13:37:18) :

I’m glad you realise that “consensus” about something doesn’t make it scientifically correct.

old construcation worker

Hats off Steve M., You and your crew. What a job, what a job well done!!!

Mark N

Great! the debate is not so one-sided, if only more could realise it. Keep at it they might hear and the figures will keep climbing. Thanks for putting up with all the bad stuff too.

John Michalski

The cream rises to the top. I don’t think I’ll get tired of saying this, but, great job Anthony and all who contribute. I don’t think even SM can discredit this hockey stick.

Since no one else has made a tipping point reference.
We are reaching a tipping point on the climate, and it’s the realization by the majority that climate alarmism is a hoax perpetrated to generate vast quantities of money for the internationalist cabal that shelters under the aegis of the United Nations, because they know their ideas would get short shrift in a democracy.
For those of you haven’t read it, I recommend Indur M. Goklany’s article on the transnational politics behind AGW.

Anthony, once again congratulations on simply the best blog on the internet.
BTW, have you ever thought about doing an antidote to Gore’s AIT movie.
An idea for a title,
