As fans of Mitchieville are aware, the annual Weblog Awards are in their final day of voting. The race is in the Best Science Blog category where the voting and the plotting is hectic and vicious. Climate Audit is a blog hosted by Steve McIntyre who is the cat who was instrumental in debunking the science behind the hockey stick climate graph. He generally focuses on the underlying statistical analysis of climate science and debunks a great deal of it. What has this to do with the Weblog Awards? A couple of the nominees who are true believers... or are read by true believers... have essentially pulled out the "anybody but Climate Audit" strategy to stop a Climate Audit win. This has lead the Junk Science blog to throw its support behind Climate Audit to counter this political move by the chicken little science blogs. So when you head over to cast a vote for Mitchieville, think about throwing a vote towards Climate Audit in the Science Blog category and piss of the doomsayers.
