Thanks to everyone who reads and a special thanks to those who have contributed posts.  Science blogging is not an easy thing   but without it, I’m not sure what i would do with my mind.

Special thanks to my favorite blogs Climate Audit, WUWT and Lucia’s for helping turn tAV to be what it is.

I wonder what the next 12 months will be like.

    Hi Jeff, your site is on my list of “homepages”. so I tend to see it daily.

    I believe that I get where your coming from and I have a lot of respect for what you are doing, and hope that you can continue to keep doing it.

    All the best for the future.

    Cheers Graeme

    An average of 30 comments per post. Pretty darn good. I’m probably one of the few who enjoys the political posts more than the science, but I’m trying to learn more about each and this is a good place to do it. Keep up the good work,

    Keep up the good work. And your occasional rant! You manage to say just about exactly what I want to but more eloquently.

    Jeff, you forgot one stat.

    A miracle just happened: 1

  16. Craigo said

    Thanks for the good work Jeff.

    When is deer season? We need another miracle!

    You could probably do with a break after a busy year of blogging and begetting.

    Lost on some of the stuff at times but I have been an avid fan since inception of the blog, thank you Jeff, God knows it is a thankless task.
    People like you and Anthony and doing important things.
    The light of this and other notable blogs, needs to illuminate the murky depths of dubious climate science.
    I am grateful for your earnestness in the push/quest, for probity.


  18. Thank God for real climate and the A** H***’s that delete jeff and the other’s that make this blogg what it is. do they GET IT? nope not a bit!

    still lurking

    You mean the overt and clumsy arrogance of RC et al inspires smart & dedicated opposition? Who’d a thunk? 😉
