To that title I should probably add 'alliteration'.
I still have not completely processed the Peter Gleick - Heartland Institute affair. Had some interesting chats (live and online) with friends, colleagues, and Mary Frances. Despite all the buzz, my belief in Gleick's scientific 'chops' has not wavered: he's one of the smartest guys in the room and I hope his voice has not been stilled for long.
But much of today was one of those quite remarkable days that reinforces my belief that I have the best job in the world: I met with six students. I will probably embarrass them by mentioning their names, but here is what (evapo?) transpired.
2) Chatting with Maria Gibson about ASR and her research proposal.
4) Kate Moran on transboundary water issues in Central America and the importance of grassroots organizations.
5) Denise Costello discussing WaSH in Afghanistan, where she would like to do her thesis. Yes, you heard me, and yes, she's worked there before.
Time to go. The South Caucasus beckons...
“With the possible exception of Tiger Woods, nothing has had a worse year than global warming. We have discovered that a good portion of the science used to justify “climate change” was a hoax perpetrated by leftist ideologues with an agenda.” —Todd Young, new congressperson from Indiana (2010)
