Thanks everyone, tAV has continued to grow. Let’s hope for another great year next year, but a little less dramatic.

May you live in interesting times.

    A little less dramatic? Sheesh, man, ask to die in your sleep. You’ve had a lot to vent and the rest of us come here to be enlightened…. or to at least graze on food for thought. More drama! More Sturm-und-Drang! And when I die, I’d like it to be in bed, but MOST definitely not asleep…

    #1, My experience on this rock has been quite eventful, I’ve been lucky enough to be lucky in both extremes. Climategate is just another chapter.

    #3 Thanks much.

    You started your blog about the time I started lurking at CA. I discovered your blog from your comments at CA linking back. Started to comment during the NSIDC data kerfuffle and have been babbling here ever since. It is hard to believe how far your blog has come in such a short time.

    I enjoy the rants, the science, and the honesty. Congratulations on the milestone.

    Congrats and keep up the good work. I trust that tAV, CA, etc will will continue to be the catalysts that will open peoples eyes and minds to what is actually going on right now with Climategate. Indeed these are the best of times and the worst of times.

    Congratulations on a well deserved achievement!

    This has not been an easy project/obsession πŸ™‚

    I’ve snipped less than 20 posts here, hell I don’t even have a ‘policy’. Actually probably less than 20 in 12970 comments but I lost track. If you consider the tone and quality of the comments here, it’s right near the top of blogs. This is absolutely not my doing but a reflection on the quality of the readers.

    Free speech, free thought, free data, free methods, and the freedom to be wrong!! Just like a weekend with the fam.

    Congratulations, Jeff! You have made a tremendous contribution to these important issues, and I look forward to much continued success.

  11. This is my first post, but I’d just like to add my congratulations. I was a student at UEA in the mid 90’s and have been taught by some of the people at the centre of Climategate. I’m an ‘ologist’ and so have a working knowledge of the stats etc used but it’s great to have the regular contributors here disect stuff and add their thoughts and expertise.

    Keep up the great work!

    tAV always makes the mornin’ coffee taste that much better.

    Who needs a newspaper? Except you need more sports. (j/k)

    Viva tAV!

    Oh no, not another damn hockey stick. I blame this one on Hollywood as it’s obviously part of the St Trinians promotion.

    Congrats πŸ™‚

    I first came here when you were banging around with your version of Wegman-MM’s red noise work on the “hockey stick” The work on Steig this year has been really great. I presume some Journal article is forthcoming…man you have come along way!

    I have an idea for 2010 that is right up your alley optics-wise. How about taking a whack at the albedo-atmospheric refraction topic as seen from the perspective of quantum partial reflection. It might be possible to build a simple atmospheric model with proportionate CO2 and H20 and generate some ## and address the filled wave-length tussle.

    Congratulations Jeff!

    A million hits is a great milestone.

    Congratulations Jeff!!

    As a contributor to the numbers almost daily almost since day one of this effort, I too say congratulations!! KEEP SCREAMING, because there are many of us non-scientists, educated before the dumbing down, who still remember what the ‘scientific method’ is, still remember our basic science, computer training, etc., who feel the same as you.
    Keep up the great work!!
