Another Article about BEST

The Talk post for October 21, 2011, was largely about the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperatures (BEST) project. This study might be expected to be of interest to those living in Pflugerville because of the emphasis that PCDC and the city government have been placing upon bringing green commercial development here. The next addition will apparently be a green data center planned by WindData.

Another article about BEST has just become available online.

The WSJ article reports on some of the reactions to the BEST study and includes links. There were many other reactions in websites that have had commentary about the BEST study. I would like to list two of these websites here.
