James D. Goodridge – climate skeptic pioneer and mentor, 1928-2020

It has taken me a couple of days to bring myself to write this. It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my dear friend and mentor, James Goodridge, on Sunday, January 5th after an illness. Jim, who was probably the single most influential person in influencing my thinking about climate, led…

New Year, New WUWT, New Initiative

After a year of mostly being on hiatus, I’m coming back to regular daily operations. As previously mentioned, there will be an announcement forthcoming related to that and to the larger news that enables me to spend much more time at WUWT than ever before. This will include some plans for expansion, as well as…

Thanks – and a note for the future of WUWT

On this traditional day of reflection and thanks, it is only fitting that I give thanks to the many many people who have made WUWT what it is today, and helped me personally. From memory (which is of course imperfect, so I have likely missed dozens if not hundreds) I offer my thanks to these…

At Sea, with Steyn, McIntyre, and McKittrick

Well, now that I’ve boarded, and there were no extinction rebellion/climate protestors at the dock in Vancouver (a hotbed of climate activism) to shout hateful messages at us, (which wouldn’t go over well with the cruise line at all) I can tell you about it. I’m on a week long cruise to Alaska with Mark…

It’s been awhile since I did. For anyone who frequents here, these results aren’t surprising. Lower numbers are better. Compared with…

WUWT housekeeping, features, and announcements

I have a few items of interest for WUWT readers. First I’d like to talk about one of the most common email issues we get with the blog and that have to do with subscriptions to our content. We often get emails saying that we have somehow deleted you from a mailing list that we…

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I’ve been able to take some much needed time-off, thanks to Charles Rotter aka “Charles the Moderator”, but I wanted to say how much I appreciate this opportunity to reach around the world with our message, and to touch lives. I’ve been given a great gift. I also wish to thank Kip Hansen, who was…

Man, I Hate Being Wrong

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach We’ll get to what I did wrong in a moment, but first, in my last post, a number of folks questioned my calculation of the surface temperatures from the CERES surface dataset. This is a dataset which is calculated from the CERES measured top-of-atmosphere (TOA) radiation measured by the satellites.…
