Real Climate wants better graphs of historic climate shifts.

Sense About Science has a nice round-up on the AAAS “Planning for Hazards” panel.

The Capital Weather Gang says that focusing on extreme weather events doesn’t get across the severity of climate change, and lets people ignore climate whenever we aren’t having a major storm.

The Senate’s big climate all-nighter doesn’t seem to have had the desired effect.
