AGU2

AGU1



The growth of the Global Environment Change section is what caused me to come to the AGU this year. It has been rather disappointing though, as it seems to contain little climate science and much squealing of the now sadly deranged prophets of doom. In contrast, at sessions on communication that cover areas of geoscience apart from climate, there is such sweet innocence...

Cassandra was always right and those who did not believe her soon dead.

FYI, if you have some time for something other than the conference, this exhibit:

is well worth the effort to get to it.

hi
what GEC sessions did you attend ?

James Annan said...

what GEC sessions did you attend ?

The...major ones. At least, that was the intention. More reports to come...

Sadly no extra time now for sightseeing, we can (and did) take a day in advance of the meeting but have to return first thing tomorrow.

Fortunately you won't have to miss the lovely post-/industrial landscape around the airport, which ought to serve to make you nostalgic for a certain section of Kamakura, if not Kyoto. , Unfortunately, there are no refineries or other major petrochemical sites to be seen.

Tell us more. What doom exactly?

James Annan said...

Didn't you hear, we are all going to die....eventually...

EliRabett said...

no, not eventually, in the long run, as you would have known if you were an economist

Very funny.

I still don't know what the doom prophets we're going on about exactly, but do we have a bit of a Crisis Cocktail on our hands or not?

Because if we don't I'm also going to start a blog and post pictures of American culinary culture.
