I doubt WikiTribune will be sucessful. It lacks much of what blogs, Wikipedia and the current news online have got going for them. The sort of left wing elite they want to attract wouldn't be caught dead supporting a crowd funded offshoot of Wikipedia, they prefer the Guardian, HuffPo and New York Times. Those who would be happy to use it are already catered for and wouldn't be pleased with the elite style preaching. Potentially it will become the screeching platform for animal/human/planet rights organisations but they will be bleating to the converted.

Not been a warm weekend here
Yesterday was windy with bit of sun in the morning
Today low cloud humid and really windy
No sign of 24C

I don't see why people go on about measured temperature
Cos the next year the same day could be the same temperature and higher humidity so it feels a lot colder and I guess for plants there is a big difference in functioning as well.

When it comes to the unreliability of Climate Science and Wikipedia, there is this from Real Climate (hardly a reliable source)

"William M. Connolley. Filed under: Contributor Bio's — group @ 6 December 2004"

"When I joined RC, I was a climate modeller with the British Antarctic Survey. Now I’m a software engineer for CSR. I’m still interested in communicating the science of climate change, but can no longer do so at a professional level.

I’m also elsewhere: the wikipedia project is developing into a useful resource ........."

Jimmy Wales has made an outstanding contribution to faking up climate science. None of it can be trusted.

From WUWT
"OCO-2’s sensors also measured carbon dioxide emissions over the Los Angeles basin, detecting a sort of carbon dioxide “dome”. Urban areas account for more than 70 percent of anthropogenic emissions."

Urban Heat Islands account for most of the Global Warming ever recorded. Country bumpkins have never noticed any of it.

It is 30th anniversary of Michael Fish saying there was no hurricane about to happen. Thankfully there has never been such an extreme weather event since, despite the forecasts of Climate Scientists

Doctored ?

You betcha... they've been wrestling for a while with how to torture the inconvenient data into submission.

I did some trivial looking at some of the researchers working on the data ... some of them were seemingly proudly broadcasting their bias even before the calibration phase was underway.

I think they've decided that status will trump any criticism of their presentational tricks ... which should've attracted far more criticism than it has from the atmospheric science community and some acknowledgement that the situation is very different to what was predicted.

OK so Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia has been working on a project
WikiTribune is supposed to be the antedote to FakeNews
It will be an online newspaper of pure truth
I pointed out earlier on B-BBC that they FAIL to understand bias/evidence cos they first list 18 places as "Preferred sources"
Putting the BBC down as one of the 3 sources that doesn't even need to be double checked.

The Times article speaks of the Fail of their first test article
Hardly surprising cos it's SJW missionary crap
The original on wayback was so bad they've rehashed it
https://medium.com/wikitribune/wikitribune-taster-1-the-great-and-the-good-meet-to-promote-un-global-goals-729a22401bd3

So then I looked the last thing Jimmy retweeted FFS look how LibFascist it is
"National calamity of Brexit"

First lines of that taster story
\\New York, 18th September 2017
An unusual coalition of figures from the movie and music industries, fantastically wealthy philanthropists, human rights leaders, politicians, and diplomats are pushing against the nationalism and gloom evident since Brexit and the U.S. elections to push for bold new goals to combat poverty, health and security.
While some critics may see the “Goalkeepers” group as what the British call a collection of the “great and good”, it has the explicit backing of the United Nations and meets this week in New York alongside the General Assembly — the annual pinnacle of global diplomacy and the first for President Donald J. Trump.
His predecessor President Barack Obama leads the list of international figures from politics, industry, philanthropy, and entertainment at Global Goals in one of his first keynote speeches since leaving office last November.//

FFS ..I just looked at their re-edit ..and the first paragraph now ends
: " despite the rise of nativism and populism."

It might be interesting to know how many other stars of Hollywood provide financial support to the Clintons, despite their deceits.

Wow How come BBC don't put these points to Hillary ?

\\In April 1999, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright found Clinton in contempt of court for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones sexual harassment trial and fined him over $90,000:
In 1994, Paula Jones filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Bill Clinton. Thar case dragged on for four years (while Clinton was serving as President) before it was finally settled in November 1998 with a check for $850,000://
