… and I am one of them.
Each year the AAAS Council elects members whose “efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished.” It means a lot to me to be recognized by my peers for my work, which is certainly not the traditional scientific career.
I am “being honored for distinguished service toward a sustainable energy future and for persuasive discourse on why citizens, corporations, and governments should adopt sustainable technologies.”
And what forum is better for persuasive discourse than a blog?
