time-cover2.jpgTurns out the latest green issue of Time (online) has a list of the top 15 Green Websites selected by its editors. Climate Progress is on it (click here) — one of the few websites devoted to global warming on the list. Here is what Time says (and I do think they start out with my best headline ever, on the IPCC Synthesis Report):

“Debate over. Further delay fatal. Action not costly.” This headline pretty much sums up Joe Romm’s message. Romm is a one-man anti-disinformation clearinghouse. His Climate Progress blog, a project of the liberal Center for American Progress, counters bad science and inane rhetoric with original analysis delivered sharply, usually with either humor or incredulity or both. Romm occupies the intersection of climate science, economics and policy. Resist temptation to lump him in with knee-jerk enviros. On his blog and in his most recent book, Hell and High Water, you can find some of the most cogent, memorable, and deployable arguments for immediate and overwhelming action to confront global warming (with infrequent guest bloggers — present company included).

[Yes, the reporter the editors asked to write up descriptions of the websites on the list is someone I tried to get to blog here regularly, but it didn't take.]

Sample Climate Progress post: If the next president does not start us on the path to avoid catastrophic global warming, he or she will be ensuring that subsequent presidents receive an endless number of calls at all times of day to deal with the ever worsening impacts on this country and the world.

    Conflicting problems of the Economy, Energy, Environment, Security, Inflation, Food, and Spendable Income, seem Insurmountable, but are they?
