DeSmogBlog One of Top 50 Eco-Blogs

The TimesOnline has produced a list of the top 50 eco-blogs in the world, crediting the DeSmogBlog in 22nd spot - among the “macro activist” blogs.

That said, the list also has a “sceptics” section that includes the likes of quibblers such as Steve McIntyre and Vaclav Klaus.

Still, it's an honor to have the DeSmogBlog's contribution recognized by an independent third party, especially one of the Times stature.

Frank Bi,

This is it.

Hey just stopping by to get my dose of green info. Always good stuff here! Love it. I know I have mentioned this site before but I think they are pretty cutting edge so I wanted to share this page:

I was hoping that someone could drop me a link of other reports that might tell us about how much time is left before we can’t fix global warming? has a pretty could article here but I want some other opinions. Man just think how the bad will be if we don’t prevent this. EarthLab has quite a few tips on how to lower your impact, here is a spot where they list what their readers recommend:

Thanks a lot for all your info and drop me a link if you guys see anything on these subjects.

What I feel disheartened about with all the eco-blogs is that none have articles on the failure by government weather service agencies (NOAA’s NWS in the US) to even acknowledge that climate change is happening!

I remember quoting this:

The blog’s not in the Top 50 list, though.

Frank Bi,

NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS) has had easy access to more than 100 years of their daily temperature data at 1000s of climate stations in the US. The temperature data shows strong warming trends at Upper Midwest stations (2-4 deg F increase in 5 yr averages since the early 1900s). NWS supervisors, and staff at their 124 NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) in the US have said that evaluating climate change is not part of the NWS mission in serving in the pubic interest. However, regional climate change has been going on for decades in the Midwest, northern Great Plains and Rocky Mountains. Not only have the NWS WFOs been ignoring climate change but their regional River Forecast Centers (RFCs) have too - in their modeling the rivers and lakes in the US.

NWS supervisor have said that considering climate change is not part of their job in developing models used for weather and water forecasting. NWS has a Climate Prediction Center (CPC) but the CPC office doesn’t forecast climate (only 30, 90 days, 6 and 12 month guidance). The NWS has not acknowledged that climate change has been happening - a great disserive to the public and the environment.
