WUWT – Voted Best Science Blog in the 2011 Bloggies

UPDATE: It is official now, here’s a screencap from the Bloggies page:

I really like the fact that they used a thermometer in the design.


This was truly surprising. According to the Bloggies Facebook page, WUWT has been named the first ever winner of the Best Science Blog category (new this year for the Bloggies), beating Wired and Boing Boing, both of whom have way more reach and traffic than we do. I suppose it demonstrates the loyalty of our readers.

I have no idea as to the votes or margins, all that remains hidden, and probably for good measure. No voting wars broke out with this contest like we saw with Climate Audit and Bad Astronomy in 2007, and that’s a good thing.

I’ll make no speeches like Sally Field’s famous 1984 Oscar speech: “You like me, you really like me!” which is actually a misquote, and a popular parody.

I’ll simply say “thank you dear readers”, and leave it at that. I also owe thanks to the many moderators and guest bloggers that make WUWT what it is. You are winners too.

I have a temporary badge up, a permanent one follows when they have it all completed. The main page here http://2011.bloggi.es should have the announcement soon – Anthony

R Dunn

Congratulations. When I voted I meant it.


Congratulations Anthony, et. al. Very well deserved!


You deserve it.
Let knowledge win out!


Congratulations and thank you Anthony, the mods and all the contributors for all the work you do and the education you give us.

Curious Canuck

Congratulations Anthony and the WUWT crew!
You guys have really earned this. Thank you!


Congratulations Anthony! This was as expected, natural, no mystery.
Will there be an awarding ceremony?


As if there was ever any doubt.
Congrats Anthony, and crew.

John F. Hultquist

Rock on!


Extremely well-deserved!
This blog is not only an outlet for many of the finest scientific minds on this planet… but is also a means of education [to teach blokes like me!].
Congrats, Anthony and team.
And as the Real Climate people get their panties in a bunch “well…that’s just subjective…its just unfair”….keep whining, RC folks.
The more you whine, the more you hurt your “cause.”
[Which is kind of bizarre anyway because I always thought science did not need a “cause”.]

Congratulations to the WUWT team, especially Anthony. Thank you for providing the other side of the debate. Without you and a very few others we would all be subject to various carbon taxes. Australia is fighting hard against our latest imposition and much of the ammo comes from here.

Anthony, Moderators, Guest Posters, and Commentators,
Thanks for making this a great website and congratulations.
GregO said it all! I can only echo the sentiment and offer my sincere appreciation for all that you do. It is a well deserved accolade.

Don Healt

The award is certainly deserved. We appreciate all the contributions you have made in so many ways in bringing common sense to this issue.

‘I suppose it demonstrates the loyalty of our readers.’
The quality of both the science and layout is fabulous. Thanks.

Wonderful news! The people have spoken.

Evan Jones

Nobody, nobody, nobody beats the Rev!
REPLY: Thank you, Evan. I’m honored. For newcomers, this is an inside joke from way back when I was named a reverend by the local leftie newspaper called the Chico Beat. It died. WUWT remains. So there. 😉
That said, maybe it’s time to make a “screeching mercury monkey” coffee mug and send it to that fellow. – Anthony

Paul Jackson

I’m happily flabbergasted! WUWT and Huffingtonpost both winning an award from the same organization, who would have thought it possible! Of course I was surprised when articles from WUWT made the front page of slashdot, long a bastion of warmist group-think.


Thank you, dear Anthony and moderators and guest posters. You deserve the recognition on so many levels. You give it your all and the result for your lucky readers is entertainment, information and the certainty that there are still people in the world who care about science and the truth!

CRS, Dr.P.H.

As we say in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma…..YEEEE-HAW! Or something like that!
Congratulations, Anthony, and job well done!


Well done all of you at WUWT!!!

Gordon Melville Ford

Congratulations to Anthony and all who have participated!

R. Shearer

So where did, at least partially funded by taxpayers, RC end up?

Light in darkness. Well done.

There are two groups of people on this earth.
Us and them.
Anthony, you are one of us. And the bloggie is not even close.

Doug Allen

Congratulations, Anthony. Very deserved. I especially like the civil tone you try to maintain here and your openess to thoughtful critical positions.

Jan Sobieski

Congratulations!! Keep up the good work.

Applause. Well earned.


I have only been here a few months but I could tell right away it is a good site, so I am happy you won – ‘grats, all of you deserve it 🙂

Congratulations to all at WUWT from the great white north igloo land.

Pamela Gray

This site has provided much instruction, entertainment, and opportunity to provide comment to such as me, just the common citizen seeking to know whether or not my vote is being served, and whether or not the information I was given leading to my vote was honest and true. Thank you. I am a bit wiser now. Your rewards are richly deserved.

Congratulations and well done.

Lew Skannen

Congrats and Well Earned!


What are you going to do for an encore?

Eric Barnes

Congratulations! WattsUpWithThat’s award is well deserved.


A big and much-deserved congratulations.
The big reward will be Romm’s reaction. I can hear his teeth-gnashing already. Bring it on, Joe baby!!!!!


Yes, despite million$ from G. Soros, Joe Romm continues his slide into irrelevance.

Walt Stone

The concepts really are simple:
Make them do the science.
Make them show their work.
Make them listen to criticism.
Then repeat.
This is how science self corrects.
A thousand plaudits for this blog.
I’m glad I have the opportunity to read it.

When you go to the Bloggies Home Page they have links to their Facebook and Twitter feeds for the results. So I went over and took a look at the Twitter feed and they put up every category and winner except the Science Category and it’s winner. They even threw up a category that is not on the list for votes called the best Web application for Web logs and given it to WordPress so that if you just count categories with out reading the numbers come up the same: 30
You can check for your self here:
REPLY: The Twitter feed is DOA this year, those are last years winners – Anthony


Congratulations. I will be interested to see how this wonderful outcome is reported, if at all, in the MSM.

John Mc

I can’t tell your how much I have enjoyed reading WUWT . Congratulations Anthony, on a job well done.

Gavin’s supporters explain why realclimate lost.☺

Congratulations, Anthony. It is well-deserved. And a big Thank You to the moderators who contribute so much.

Douglas DC

Congrats, Anthony, good job. glad I helped with the vote…


This piece of news has made my late night study session worth it, congratulations @3:37am in Glasgow!
This site has been invaluable to members of the public concerned with the rhetoric being pushed by the IPCC and so on and provides us with fantastic information. Well done to the WUWT team 🙂

richard verney

Congratulations Anthony.
Nice to see that you are getting the recognition that you quite rightly deserve.

Bob Diaz

I know it’s a lot of hard work, but let me say, “Congratulations!!!!”
The information presented is very helpful.
