The Intersection

Back to The Hill

i-2b40933cbed48fa20cbf52966d838d20-bill.jpgThis weekend I’m returning to my old stomping grounds to brief Hill folks on oceans, climate, and their interface in the policy realm. I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and Autumn is a wonderful time to be back because the humidity has finally subsided. While my heart is always with New York, I appreciate that DC is deliciously unique. Everyone bustles about making their way in the world, and for the most part, residents don’t settle in for more than a few years. A land of nomads from everywhere with big dreams on a million different trajectories. The District is seductive because there’s always something to do, somewhere to be, and someone to meet. Even back when I lived on 11th st, I knew it wasn’t a place I’d stay long, yet would always be a city where I’d feel at home.

    I just read over the Nicholas Institute’s website and can’t think of another organization like this anywhere. It sounds very exciting and appears your team has accomplished a great deal already for such a young Institute. It seems like as well as blogging at an “Intersection” you are also actually working at the intersection of science and policy. I look forward to reading more about your work because it sounds like a group that is finally moving past the interdisciplinary talk and taking action.

    Thanks William. The Nicholas Institute is a great place to be and I’m lucky to work with a wonderful team.
