2012 SkS Weekly Digest #21
Posted on 28 May 2012 by dana1981
John Hartz is on vacation this week, so this version of the weekly digest will be slightly abridged.
Dana''s Modeled and Observed Ocean Heat Content - Is There a Discrepancy? and Hansen and Sato Estimate Climate Sensitivity from Earth's History garnered the most comments and pageviews this week. We also saw John Cook interviewed in The Climate Show #27.

Issue of the Week
How do you feel about the ratio of different types of SkS posts (i.e. myth debunkings, technical posts, discussions of new research, mainstream media and blog rebuttals, etc.)? Should we do more or less of any of these types of posts?
