This Year’s Weblog Awards

I’ve never done this sort of thing before, but I am asking you to nominate Climate Progress your favorite science blog (click here) for a Weblog award. Please read this whole post first, however.

If you go to the site, you’ll see why I am sticking my nose under the camel’s tent of shameless self-promotion beyond a general desire to win, drive traffic to this website, create a groundswell of support for strong climate legislation, and possibly save your children and my 22-month-old daughter from a ruined climate….

Certain websites, who will remain nameless www.climateaudit.org and wattsupwiththat.com, have, shall we say, very enthusiastic supporters … not that there’s anything wrong with that, unless, of course, having Climate Audit be cowinner of the 2007 Best Science blog rubs you the wrong way.

Please note the Rules and FAQs:

  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough…
  • Rather than add a “me too” nomination for a site you’re encouraged to use the “+” icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The “+” ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • The nomination period has been extended to Friday, November 21, 2008 [that would be tomorrow].

There will only be 10–15 finalists, so please do act now (click here). Thank you for your support.
