“…we are coming of age on a finite planet and only just now recognizing that it is finite. So how we mesh infinite aspirations of a species that’s been on this explosive trajectory — not just of population growth but of consumptive appetite — how can we make a transition to a sort of stabilized and still prosperous relationship with the Earth and each other is the story of our time.” -Andrew Revkin

    Getting lonely over here Coby? I haven’t forgotten about you. We had an interesting night here in Denver. The old record low for this date (15 Dec.) was -6. Set in the 50s I believe. Last night we broke it by 13 deg, going down to -19. Brrrr.

    We also have very cold weather (for Vancouver) and snow here. Hallelujah! Global warming is over! (or maybe not…)

    (Thanks for the company!)

    Well, Coby, at least it’s 39 in Poznan Poland where they are about to have the next UN climate change conference. Toasty by comparison to Denver. Looks like the pack of opposing scientists is growing. Wonder if these troublemakers will get to be heard at the conference.
