Snip This Real Climate
Posted by Jeff Condon on July 16, 2010
No snips at tAV this year.
To my recollection, I’ve had to snip nobody this year. No comments deleted, no thoughts removed. I think I edited a cussword, but it was from Ryan O’s guest post haha. Perhaps I’ve just forgotten one, but considering that the Air Vent has close to 10,000 comments this year and over two million views in its under two year life, that’s pretty good stuff. Especially so when considering the contentious nature of the discussion here.
Going forward, I hope to refocus more on science and less on scientists, of course they have to try not to release insane emails for a bit if we want that to happen (and no damned shrinking fish papers - I can’t resist those). Also, it would be helpful if our politicians didn’t try to pass cap and trade but today, I don’t care what they do. Science is fun.
Think about that, I’m probably the loudest and most outspoken of the scientific climate bloggers –not to my credit but the lack of snips is due to the credit and profile of the readers.
That is very unusual in blogland. And of all the sites on all the blogs, that is a huge rarity.
Wow…Someone calc the probability of that happening here!!
There are a variety of snips which could have been used:
The intended snip:
The voyeur snip:
The necessary snip:
The unintentional snip:
