A Mile Stone Achieved! 100,000 views!


Well, it’s a small mile stone, but, considering how this blog started.  I’m going to allow myself just a little self-satisfaction.  And thank all of the people who contribute to this blog. 

Originally, I used this blog only as a work space of sorts.  I got tired of doing work like plotting snow cover and then working like heck to post a graph or a chart just to get it on the blogs for people to see.  I got tired of writing lengthy comments with links that no one would read.  Thinking smile  So, I linked, graphed, analyzed and wrote blog posts no one read.  Laughing out loud

I have to say, it seems worse to write blog posts which no one reads than blog comments which no one reads, for some reason.  Annoyed

Again, this place simply started as a work place.  I didn’t really “blog” in the typical sense.  I’ll break it down for you.  I wrote 3 posts in March of 2011, 2 posts in April, 3 in May, 4 in June, 3 in July, 11 in August and 33 in Sept.  So, while technically this blog is about 1 1/2 years old, it’s really only been a traditional blog for less than a year.  It’s likely We will  go over 1000 posts tomorrow.  (by my count there’s been about 5 or 6 guest posts)  The first being AAM!  




The reason I decided to move forward with this blog in such a manner is because of the climate issue.  No, not that I believe I have anything great to add to the discussion, (though I have had my moments. Smile  )  It is because I saw something changing and something lacking.  Nearly all skeptics see the political and ideological bent to anthropological climate change advocacy.   I’ve written several times that the science is so weak that it can’t be about the science.  It’s virtually non-existent.  In my opinion, the specific issue of climate change is in its death throes.  But, the ideology behind the advocacy is as strong as ever.  So, we cover a plethora of issues here.  The readership is diverse!  We have all sorts of knowledgeable and earnest people come by and contribute!   

We have an international diversity as well.  1/3 of the visits come from outside the U.S.  The peak visits are still when we’ve written something newish and novel regarding climate.  Now, I know the numbers are miniscule compared to other blogs, for the time being.  But, I’m more than satisfied of the slow and steady progress we’ve made. 

While there are scores of people I’d like to thank, and give a shout out, I’ll refrain for fear of leaving someone out.  I just want everyone to know that I treasure the discussions.  I get a charge out of knowing I’m not the only one who feels the way I do.  I also deeply enjoy the diversity of opinion.  Even the ones who challenge my assertions.  There is, however, one I feel I should give a shout to.  Frequent commenter Latitude, who has gone missing from the blogs as far as I can tell.  I’ve been commenting on various blogs with Lat for so many years, it’s like I would know what he would write and he would know what I would write, regardless of the issue.  So, my thanks, my friend.  Come back soon.  And, thanks to everyone.  In my estimation this has been an unqualified success and I’m looking forward to more success as we all move forwa…… ahead.  Smile 

God bless,

    Well Done, Sir and congratulations.

  2. jimash1 says:

    Congrats and Thanks for the opportunity to hang with you.

  3. Bruce says:

    Congrats from me too. Just be careful – from what I see blogging is not yet mature enough to be a paying prospect generally. However in face of the MSM’s mad rush to progressivism, I’ll quote Darius Jedburgh:

    But as a vehicle for regaining one’s self-respect, oh, it’s got a lot going for it!

    Keep nuking those totalitarians, Suyts.

    • suyts says:

      You can bet I will.

      No, it isn’t a paying prospect, yet. So far, with social media, the only way I see to make money is just go public and then sell my shares on the IPO. πŸ˜€

    you are really going places now:

    • miked1947 says:

      Steven’s place was better when it was more intimate.
      I prefer the one on one conversations at a site like this.
      Thanks for sharing with me.

    • suyts says:

      Love the 5th dimension!!! KK, I’ll take the balloon, but, I’m pretty jealous of the wings!

      Thanks Mike. It’s been a great pleasure having you come by and comment since almost the beginning.

    • miked1947 says:

      Two additional items:
      I am back to a more regular attendance and I also miss Latitude. I need someone on the coast to harass about the Hurricanes and sinking coast line. ;).

  5. Me says:

    Ya earned it, good work here, but someone will say you diddy build that, err something like that. πŸ˜† Continue doing what ya do and full speed ahead! Foreward was so 30’s\40’ish. πŸ˜†

  6. leftinbrooklyn says:

    Nice work….

  7. miked1947 says:

    I found your problem:

    • Me says:

      The problem is things aren’t simple anymore and innocent people pay the piper at times.

      • miked1947 says:

        I agree ME:
        Things have not been simple for many years. I was teasing James.

        • Me says:

          Yeah, I know where your coming from. It’s a crazy world out there now. Sick really.

        • miked1947 says:

          It is and I am still being fooled by some of the deception in my own life. At least for a short period. But I bounce back and try again.

        • Me says:

          Yep, All I know is Me ain’t no messiah with all the answers, Not that I am religeous, or anything now but I was at one point I guess and still maybe.

      • Me says:

        Hey Mike, I like where your comming from, keep it up, Eh! Not everyone agrees on everything at times but hey we still have a common intress, freedom at the top and freedom from being fucked over by others wanting to get into your wallet, is probably the most common.

    • suyts says:

      It’s a great song!

      • Me says:

        Yep, it sounds great and sound, but when it can stir a witch hunt kinda thing, bad things can happen when the concensus is made without facts. It’s follow the leader kind of thing and you put your trust in a snake oil salesman, is all Me is saying. But for those that there is no question to their guilt, they should pay the piper, and still there are grey areas, it isn’t that simple anymore.

      • suyts says:

        Well, I don’t think Charlie was advocating vigilantism, songs have to be condensed and was singing about feelings rather than asserting action.

  8. The one thing I was thinking as I was reading is what’s happened to Latitude. I’m glad to see the last paragraph was about him.

    Where are you Lat?!

    I hope everything is ok with him.

  9. What happened on May 21 anyway?

    • Me says:

      OK, I missed that, what happened?

    • suyts says:

      Lol, my busiest day….. the Peter Gleick clearing himself..I think I was the first skeptic to write about it. It was weird. Serial misreporter Susan Goldenberg apparently had released the news before she was suppose to. I pointed it out, after a stir, the story disappeared for a while and then they put it back, no sources, no quotes nothing. Much later, it turns out it was right. Glieck’s organization cleared Glieck….

  10. Me says:

    Any how James, Congrats on your milestone here, if you didn’t build it, we wouldn’t visit here. Very nice work and continue with it.
    Cheers to you and everyone here, Have to go, Good night, Chat later and keep them to the fire.

  11. Jim Masterson says:

    Congratulations sir. Thanks for being a great host. I’ve enjoyed my stay. I also like how you treat the liberals–firm but polite (not to mention slicing and dicing them with logic). I, too, have a web site/blog, but I use it for storing my images, graphs, and documents. I need a reference for my posts. I’m amazed at how you and others can write so many posts. Writing was never my thing.

    I wish you much success in the future.


  12. HankH says:

    Congratulations, James!!! Suyts Space is my first daily read and there’s a reason for that. You’ve hit upon a rich and well balanced mix of the things that interest me. Keep up the good work.

    I’m still crunching numbers to beat the Aug 2nd deadline but I had to take time to stop in and tell you well done and wish you more success going forward.

    I miss Lat too. I hope he’s okay.

  13. gator69 says:

    Great googly moogly! Well done James! Like fine wine, your blog gets better as time passes. Thanks for all you do!

  14. philjourdan says:


    Each blog I frequent has a different style. Some (such as WUWT), your posts rarely (if ever) get feedback from the owner. Understandable for high volume blogs like that. Others, you get feedback on almost every post. Those are the smaller ones, that appear more to be a friendly bar chat (or pickle barrell for you tee totalers), Yours is the latter of course (along with Chiefio).

    While I know you are proud of your success (as you well should be), I hope you never change your style.

    • suyts says:

      Thanks Phil. You hit the nail on the head. I do make an intentional effort ot for just such a style. Like you say, the volume for places such as WUWT would make it impossible for such an interaction, but, I prefer the bar or pickle barrell chat. I liked it when I was mostly a commenter and I like it as a host.

  15. DERise says:

    Bravo Zulu on 100K, hope 100KK comes soon. I enjoyed your posts on Steve and Anthonys blogs, followed your link and now have found one of my favorite climate/political blogs.

  16. manicbeancounter says:

    Well done on your achievement. I have only discovered your blog in the last few days, but look forward to coming back.
    I have recently been coming round to your view of the politicized nature of climatology. It is not an Athenian democracy either, but one where any disagreement is denigrated or expunged,
