Thanks to Baerbel who's started adding to the new Wiki
, but it would be really great to get some more volunteers to help populate it. All you have to do is register on the Wiki (top right corner) and you can add to or edit the entries on these pages:
Editing isn't hard. There's an edit icon to the right of the screen. There are guidelines on this page
. If you were able to donate 10 minutes a day for a few days, the Wiki would grow hugely. Even just adding one or two links a day would help enormously.
To get back to the Wiki home page
at any time, just click on the logo on the top left of every page. Any other questions, just ask. Any suggestions - please add. (Eg I think it would be nice to pretty it up in time, with images. For now, getting some data in there is the priority.)
Gavin Schmidt's Ted Talk "The emergent patterns of climate change"
Ars Technica's "Why trust climate models?"
Links to climate related MOOCs to keep an eye on
SkS' "The history of climate science"
SkS' Rough guides to "The slow carbon cycle" and "Jet stream"
So, these my be links to individual/specific pages or articles but not necessarily to the whole blog or website.
Should we group these by topic or just one big list with "other relevant links"?
Also, I'm okay with you creating new pages Baerbel. I've given you access permission that will allow you to add pages as well as sections. If you find you can't do something you'd like to do, just shoot me an pm (chat message) or email and I'll enable it if I can. (I'm still figuring out things like permissions and security so for now the Wiki is locked down except for registered users being able to edit existing pages, unless I explicitly give access to do more.)
Regarding sorting and grouping - I think sub-headings will make it easier to find things. What do you think? For example, we can probably break things up on the Climate Reference page with sections for:
Or whatever works.
- Overview/intro to climate change(for websites that have the lot)
- climate models;
- history of climate science (the SkS page and Spencer Weart's pages);
- videos (Ted talks, Denial101) etc.
The beauty is that we can change things easily, and add more headings or pages as the number of references grows. We can try different ways of organising the material and if we don't like it, we can easily change it by cutting and pasting into different headings or pages.
I'm happy for you to have a shot at whatever you think will work best, Baerbel.
If the number of blogs grows, that blog table could also be divided into sections for straight science, general, denier debunking etc. - or maybe just add another column with a tag that allows sorting.
Let me know if that doesn't work for you. (Perhaps I should add that to the intro.)
- going into edit (the pen icon on the right),
- clicking inside the row below the spot you want to add.
- Then right-click (or the equivalent) and from the list that appears choose "row/insert row before".
- Then a new row will appear and you can add the entry.
- Then scroll down the bottom and click "save"
