… will have to wait until next week. [Note to self: You are starting to sound like Ryan Seacrest on "American Idol".]

I got bogged down in giving three talks and responding to Breakthrough Institute’s mistakes about breakthroughs and finishing my next Salon piece and writing the pieces explaining why the Pielke et al. Nature article is wrong in a variety of respects, most especially its conclusion — and then responding to the latest personal attack on me by Breakthrough Institute that I confess was totally unexpected.

I promise I will run the solution posts next week. And the three pieces on the Nature article, too. Though if Tiger doesn’t get his act together at August tomorrow, I may have some blogging time Sunday….

    I thought about it and I came up with everybody stop releasing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. I hope yours is more complete than that.

    “everybody stop releasing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. ”

    Like in stop breathing ?
    All other “solutions” are equally feasible.

    No rush on trying to cover the solutions. It is important to give time for each to digest. As a scientist some of my publications have come under attack from expected sources. I found that the paper I received the most compliments on ever, was a response to a bitter attack, in which I remained completely on the high road, disproved the items they contended, without getting into motives or even hardly mentioning the critics. Lesson, stick to the science and ignore motives when trying to identify science mistakes. It is nigh impossible to do both at once, and your readers can only conflate the two goals.

    Mauri: I good lesson for all!
    Any chance your paper would be of interest to Climate Progress readers?

  6. Mauri Pelto says:

    Joe, the paper in question was a 1997 published response on glacier mass balance measurement methods. I use crevasse stratigraphy which had been avoided in the past. Recently there has been significant flak regarding the concept of glacier disequilibrium explained here

    good layman’s version with nice pictures. http://www.mountaineers.org/nwmj/07/071_Glaciers.html

  7. Hi! I will be looking forwards having more information from you. It nice to know that there are people who say that “we can”. It is important that the movement increase and that more people say that “we can solve the climate crisis”. The WE project is fantastic in the sense that it offers a good vision (se http://www.we.org).

    I have done some research on the power of using the universal law of attraction to help us make change come trough, se more at http://www.debatcode.com
