    I am reading your latest book, Six Degrees. I must protest your statement on page 118 “This might come as news to the average city dweller digging in to a ready meal in front of the TV”. Not only is that an errogant statement but it is an ignorant statement as well. I guess your predetermined bias toward “City Dwellers” has some kind of reasoning. But being a city dweller I find that we get out more and get involved more and fill up gyms more (in reference to the TV) than the other folks I guess that you elude to as being more enviromently and physically (non-city dwellers) active. Great Book

    I missed the live chat on Gather but I have been in some heated AGW debates there. Used your guide too! Say do you remember that paper the sceptics used that looked at the growing ice sheet in eastern Antarctica? I cna’t find it or remember the guy’s name. Iowa State U. I think? Thanks.
