Via dubious sources, I’ve just discovered thedailymash, and Obama defends ‘creationist psycho bitch’ remark in particular. Their take on the US housing crisis is good, too. There’s even a bit aboutGW.
On a more techie note, I came in at the facebook article before my technical lead directed me to the Lib Dems political plans. But I found this all by myself. Sorry: I went to public school, you know.
Meanwhile, from cyrolist, it seems the UKMO is interested in ice shelves:
Polar Ice Sheet Modelling Scientist
Salary: GBP 25,500 + competitive benefits including Civil Service Pension.
Permanent post at the Met Office, Exeter, UK
Closing date for applications: 24 September 2008
A significant uncertainty in future projections of sea level is associated with dynamical changes in the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets and a key aspect of this uncertainty is the role of ice shelves: how they might respond to climate change, and the effect this could have on the ice sheets. The purpose of the job is to incorporate a model of ice-shelves into the Hadley Centre climate model to develop a capability to make projections of rapid changes in ice sheets, thereby leading to improved scenarios of future sea-level rise.
There’s a web advert with further details at
I’mnot sure I fully agree with them, though. Probably icesheet-shelf interaction is more fun. Maybe thats what they mean.
