Jeff Masters has been a prominent blogger on climate change and weather since the early 2000s. In early 2018, Masters announced that he was taking a hiatus from blogging to focus on his new book, Climageddon: How Climate Change Threatens Our Future.
However, in early July 2018, Masters announced that he had taken down his blog “due to personal reasons.” Masters did not provide further details about the reasons for the blog’s closure.
Some have speculated that the closure may be related to personal struggles Masters has been experiencing, while others suggest that it may be due to decreased traffic and engagement over time. Regardless of the reason, it is unfortunate that one of the most influential voices on climate change has ceased writing on the topic.
