On the previous post (about Willis Eschenbach) I had reworded a Wizard of Oz song to be about Willis’s great ideas. Another Ian posted a reworded song in comments, and suggested a poetic equivalent of Josh’s climate cartoons – perhaps a competition. So how about it folks? And I’ve got an ideal subject…
I’m a bit late with this but send a great big CONGRATULATIONS to Anthony Watts for Watts Up With That? being voted Best Science Blog in the 2011 Bloggies. Science should be made interesting, debated and discussed. What it shouldn’t be is – dry, straight-laced, and only for scientists. Whatever critics like to say, WUWT attracts a varied mix of people with a natural curiosity about science and technology and only asks that people keep an open mind and a civil tongue in discussions. I found it when I first started to look behind the ‘science’ of global warming about three years ago. I found it a forgiving place to someone who was only starting to ask questions.
So, to honour the Bloggie win, how about a few verses in celebration of all that Watt’s Up With That is – and does.
Minimal rules: must rhyme (but it’ll be interesting to see that one being pushed 😉 ); must be four lines or more; maximum length? – oh just keep it sensible. If there’s a good response (yes this could fall very flat I know) I’ll ask the WUWT Moderators to shortlist their favourites and put up a poll. Come on now – don’t disappoint me!
