I have written a blog post for the Prudent path week.

I'll probably tinker with it some more once I leave it alone for a while but in the meantime I'd welcome some comments

Andy, looks good to me. Haven't checked all the links, but the Shakhova one is a dud. Another link on the Science page does take you to the abstract.

Looks good Andy.  Hope you don't mind, I went in and made a few minor formatting and editorial changes.  Just adding commas and things like that.

I'd suggest revising the intro so that it references Prudent Path Week and the "skeptic" letter to Congress without being an exact copy of the Prudent Path Week post intro.  But otherwise it's quite good.

Thanks Rob and Dana.

Rob: The link to the Shakhova paper didn't work because it pointed to the full paper that I have access to through my  AAAS subsciption. I replaced it with a link to JC's SkS article on it. Thanks for catching that.

Dana: I did revise the intro but if you want to revise it further, or change the title to fit in with the rest of the series, please go ahead. I don't object at all to you making any minor changes. I changed the headings format to be consistent with other blog posts but I'm struggling with the line spacing at times.

"A recent paper by NOAA and NSIDC predicts that by 2020 the tundra will turn from a carbon sink to a carbon source". That should be "by the late 2020s" or "sometime after the mid 2020s".

Thanks, John. Corrected.

I haven't been able to track down a full copy of that paper yet. Can anyone help? To buy a copy costs $40; at that price I'll assume that Joe Romm's reading of it is fair.

I'll EM Albatross & see if he can help with that.

 

Andy:  What's your email address if he can help out?

Thanks, Daniel.

If anyone wants to borrow a Science or AGU article pdf for researching a SkS blog post, please drop me a line.

Andy, are you ready to publish this one?  Let me know if you are and I'll go live with it.

Yep, ready to go. Thanks.

Feel free to change the title to conform with others in the series. "The Prudent Path" reference in the title may no longer be required since the PP logo is now attached to the post.
