There are quite a few plates spinning this morning, including getting my mom to the airport for her flight back to B’ham. Then, home and get my head around upcoming events: tomorrow at noon at the New College Institute in Martinsville (open to the public) and a TBA event on Saturday at Heartwood in Abingdon. I’ll read and/or interact with what audience there might be at some point (maybe 1:00) and have the digital landscapes slide show running if we can make the physical plant andÂ equipmentÂ work for that.
I’m also responding this morning to some genuine questions from an old friend who never had any science grounding in college where we knew each other, and now has arrived at some conclusions that are wanting a solid grounding in fact,Â especially as relates to environmental issues. I hope we can carry on a helpful dialogue and remain friends, and would not undertake this back and forth if I didn’t think that possible.
His first question basically lets the tail of ClimateGate wag the dog of climate science. Maybe I’ll post my responses at some point. As you may know, some of those same stolen emails are being tossed out now in advance of upcoming climate talks. This time, the villainization and disinformation is not working. See Related Articles.
We had a rip-snorter of a rain overnight, but there is no flooding that will keep us from our appointed rounds this morning.
