So the list has grown to over 300 already! I know that the inspiration for this list – that is, Poptech’s list – is no longer of much concern. Indeed anyone with any scientific training would have already quickly come to the conclusion that the meaning of his list is simply that it’s a list – and a list of papers that are pleasing to the ears of the few who would promote industrial stagnation.
However, it did lead to my creation of the list of Genuine Science Papers Supporting Confidence in the AGW theory and Relevant Environmental Concern, which is no doubt a valuable resource for those interested in learning more or requiring references for their work. It also does what his list could never do in providing mutually supportive work behind a unified theory.
Over the most recent 100 papers added, those I found really fascinating were;
Photosynthetic performance of lichen transplants as early indicator of climatic stress along an altitudinal gradient in the arid Mediterranean area
– Pirintsos, Paoli, Loppi and Kotzabasis (2011) Climatic Change
Pan evaporation and wind run decline in the Cape Floristic Region of South Africa (1974–2005): implications for vegetation responses to climate change

– Demeke, Keil and Zeller (2011) Climatic Change
There were a few others I really wanted to add, but these would have to be the top 10 of the new entries for me. I’ve leave the (NEW) flag on the most recent additions until the beginning of next week. As always, I recommend you keep an eye out as the list is ever growing (the title of the post will change to reflect the most recent multiple of 10 that has been achieved, the poster will be updated by values of 50 and by values of 100, I will produce a like post reflecting on my top 10 papers from the new additions).
I hope you enjoy!
