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.
Thank you, for your many articles, they have been entertaining and informative. This is a depressing issue. The lack of a reponse commensurate with the scale of the problem by the governments and people of the world is not the type of situation which engenders hope. It is nice to know that there are others who are aware of our climate change problem, and are doing what they can to spread awareness.
Happy New Year! You’re doing a great job, Kate. I hope you have the time to continue to blog about these issues.
btw, if you ever need any input on biological or ecological issues–those are my career fields–just email. I get around to checking that email account 2 or 3 times a month.
[Thanks Ken, I’ll keep that in mind. What areas do you study in particular? -Kate]
Happy 2010, Kate! Keep up the good work!
Kate – Happy New Year! Thank you for helping educate me on this topic! You’ve been incredibly helpful and I appreciate that!
Keep up the good work.
