Here’s a weblog that’s definitely worth taking a look at:  Real Climate, a collaboration by a group of preeminent climate scientists (including the University of Washington’s Eric Steig) to explain issues of climate and climate-change to non-scientists. (Tip of the hat to Brad deLong for pointing this one out.)

Of topical interest:  a discussion of Michael Chrichton’s new book, State of Fear, which is apparently as full of factual errors as it is of climate-change skepticism.  The comments from interested readers are just as interesting as the post itself.
