A New Mission

May 19, 2010

The time has come to retire this occasional blog, at least for now.

I’m so lucky these days because I get to work on climate change all day long – and I get paid to do it!

I can thank Barack Obama for my new gig. He came to town and gave all federal agencies, including the one I recently started working for, a new and important mandate: Tackle global warming, build an international dialogue, and let the scientists do their jobs.

Remember, the previous president had marched the United States out of the Kyoto Protocol – the only existing global warming treaty enacted thus far – and made it clear to the world the the United States couldn’t care less about greenhouse gas emissions wreaking havoc on Earth.

Well, that’s all water under the bridge now. I’m having a blast writing about species going extinct, a Senate energy bill that just won’t move, climate change nay-sayers — and all the wonderful things that people are doing anyway because they believe in science and want to do the right thing for the environment.

I don’t see so many wannabes anymore. Seems to me, people are either in denial or trying to advance the cause any way they can.

It’s them and us. And right now, we’re in power.
