For the moment, I’ve decided to remain anonymous. I don’t really know why. No particularly good reason and I certainly don’t intend to use my anonymity to attack those who are not. I am not a climate scientist, but am a professional and active scientist who teaches and carries out research at a university – regarded by some – as amongst the best in the world. The views I express here are my own and not those of my employer.
As far as the name of the blog is concerned, it was clearly chosen to indicate that a goal is to address climate science claims made on Anthony Watts’s Watts Up With That (WUWT) site. I say “address” because the goal isn’t to simply refute what is said on WUWT. I will happily acknowledge contributions there that add positively to the discussions around climate science. I should also acknowledge that there is already a site called Wotts Up With That? and realise that the name of this site is somewhat similar to that. Hopefully they will recognise imitation as being the sincerest form of flattery but, if not, they are welcome to let me know. If for some reason anyone would like to get in touch with me, I can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
