A happy 2010 to everyone. I thought that the start of a new year would be an appropriate time to thank the many people who have made this blog possible.
First and foremost, thanks to the ever-patient and computer-savvy reader who set me up with a blog after months of listening to my rambles about climate change….and who continues to listen, even though I now have an outlet for my thoughts.
I never would have become interested in climate change if it weren’t for a certain geography teacher and a certain climatology prof (you both know who you are!), as well as the great folks from Climate Change Connection.
I have taken a great deal of inspiration from the work of Greg Craven, and many of my posts trace back to ideas that his videos sparked. More recently, I have relied on at least a dozen great blogs for climate change news – thanks to all of you.
Tamino and Mychaylo are each responsible for about a third of my regular readers – it’s amazing how much an influential person can help to spread the word.
And now we reach the regular readers and commenters, who are the heart of this blog. I have turned to these conscientious people for resources, answers to scientific questions, moral support, presentation editing, career advice, insights…..and they have never let me down.
Deep thanks to all of you who keep the discussion flowing and the message moving. It isn’t always easy to spend so much time on such a depressing issue, but you make it worth it.
