RC's Introduction to Climate Science - see here.

[This is an impressive list of articles. However, while some may be perfectly valid scientifically, not all are trustworthy, because they are all overlighted by a dogmatic belief in Anthropogenic Global Warming, "proved" by selection and omission of evidence. The courtesy towards skeptics and doubters can often be seen to fall short; and one does not even see here the huge number of perfectly reasonable scientific posts that have been censored, for no other reason than that they seriously challenge the AGW dogma - GWT]
