"The most read Climate Progress posts of 2008"
Here are all the year’s posts viewed by 15,000 or more people.
It is a more arbitrary list than the most-discussed posts of 2008, since it is wholly determined by whether I get picked up by some uber-popular website like Digg or if the post pops up in search engines. But I will include this list in the year-end recap if for no other reason than it contains one post guaranteed to make you laugh:
[The only post to make both lists.]
[This received 1700 Diggs and temporarily crashed my system — otherwise it probably would have gotten considerably more views.]
[A lot of people come to Climate Progress after doing a search on polar bears.]
[If that post doesn’t make you smile, then you are simply impervious to schadenfreude.]
[This one shows the benefits of getting out a blog post fast — this post was published before she even began speaking!]
[Did I mention that people love polar bear posts.]
[Andrew Sullivan picked this up — and, of course, nothing is more dissable than corn ethanol.]
[I have no friggin’ clue why this post from March gets so many views. It was viewed 9500 times in December alone. Yet Technorati lists only two links to it. That means it must be cropping up on Google searches. Again, not sure why. Such are the vagaries of this list.]
