Real Climatologists Look at the Real Cilmate

'Though I am enjoying the sunniest April in 30 years (and watching our baby become a toddler playing with worms in the garden) I can't help but worry that the lack of April showers bode ill for May flowers.

RealClimate is for anyone mildly (or wildly) questioning the state of the world's weather; and whether or not it's getting hotter 'n' hotter.

The site is written by actual scientists who study actual data and measure temperatures for a living. The contributors present such data to confirm that, yes, the world is getting warmer, and, yes, we should worry.

A recent post illustrates in photos and graphs the worldwide retreat of glaciers from mountaintops.

The editors of RealClimate describe their blog as:

[A] commentary site on climate science by working climate scientists for the interested public and journalists. We aim to provide a quick response to developing stories and provide the context sometimes missing in mainstream commentary. The discussion here is restricted to scientific topics and will not get involved in any political or economic implications of the science.
