The updated blogroll has been in action since Satruday, but here's the note describing the newcomers. In some cases, I've been reading the blog itself for some time. D'Oh!
Newcomers to the blogroll:
Main focus on climate science, or some part thereof:
The Science of Doom
Neven's Arctic Sea Ice Blog
Climate Change: The Next Generation
Climate change: The Next Generation is a different sort of blog. Most content is pointers to the scientific literature or to science press write ups of the scientific literature. I think this is a good way for people, particularly those who don't have major research libraries handy, to get pointers to interesting parts of the literature.
Main focus on temperature reconstruction and analysis
Moyhu (Nick Stokes)
The Whiteboard (Ron Broberg) [Updated to include]
Clear Climate Code
(This is aimed at being more general than just temperature reconstruction and analysis, eventually, but at the moment still seems to be mostly this.)
Main focus on the computer science of climate science
Serendipity (Steve Easterbrook)
The author, at least when she started, was a high school student taking an interest in learning about climate science. If I remember correctly, she's starting university about now. Articles tend to be about her wrestling to understand the science, and her wading through the nonscience to get there.
Suggestion that I'll invite further comment regarding:
The Green Grok
This one didn't strike me as 'of course it should be here'. It looks good, but the goals don't seem to align as well with mine. I invite the comment (see also my response below to Carrot eater's previous comment) so you all can let me know why you do or don't think it would be a good addition here. That's a different issue than whether it's a good blog.
Some comments to the previous note :
Carrot: If I ask an opinion question, then your opinion, and everyone else's, certainly does count. It's also helpful to me to know why folks agree or disagree -- with me, or with each other. I agree with you that irregular is fine for my blogroll, for the same reason you give. Of course the final opinion that counts for making blunders in blog management here is mine. Still, sometimes y'all can steer me away from some of the worst blunders.
S2: I've sent Fergus some email over the past year and heard nothing back. Don't know if he's just left the blogosphere or what. I do know that the author of evenmoregrumbinescience is ok, just doing other things.
M: There turn out to be multiple whiteboard blogs, and I'm not sure which one you mean.
