'First, the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide are dominant over the climatic effects and are overwhelmingly beneficial. Second, the climatic effects observed in the real world are much less damaging than the effects predicted by the climate models, and have also been frequently beneficial.'

Yours truly played a minor role in this, mainly just encouraging the others and promising to do more in the future. Theirs was the original idea, and theirs the energy that got it launched.
Earlier this year (27 April post), I said I was going to post less often here, but that I would maintain the blog - especially the reference Pages - when I came across relevant material. I also mentioned a couple of posts I had mind to publish soon. I have not done those yet, but instead I have put up a few easier-to-do reactions to or reports on other people's work. I still hope to do the promised posts, and others from time to time.
This new blog suits me, and the others behind it, in that by sharing the work, we hope to keep it lively and frequently updated so that it becomes a popular place to visit. How dull, after all, is a blog where new posts are few and far between.
From the 'About' page of the new blog, some further explanation:
'The climate sceptic blogosphere is becoming crowded to the point that it’s difficult to keep up. Several of us (all British or UK based so far), are getting weary of the effort of grinding out several articles a month simply in order to remain visible. It’s not that we haven’t got something to say – rather that we’d like to take the time to say it as audibly and as clearly as possible.
