Just a note to say I have revived my sabbatical blog, which has to do with my other life (inextricable from this one). I took a sabbatical last year to learn something about Arctic climate change. Since then climate change has only got worse, carbon dioxide emissions are increasing, and as the world burns, the powers-that-be are focusing their energies on finding more fossil fuels to burn, such as in the until-now pristine Arctic. (See the breaking news about Shell’s drilling, which has just commenced). I can’t just stand on the sidelines and wring my hands in despair. I continue to learn, and investigate creative ways to communicate on the issue and to act in ways that make meaningful change. The revived and updated blog is one small step in that direction. It is a repository of thoughts, comments and updates on climate, and also includes my scientific-travelogue-style account of my Arctic trip in April 2014.
