EGU Autumn 2011 election now open

The EGU election for President may be of a bit more importance than usual, given the somewhat disturbing behaviour of the EGU in recent years (eg here and here). One of the candidates, Denis-Didier Rousseau, has done a good job running the Climate Division over recent years (re-elected last year with an extremely high level of support, IIRC). He's done plenty of worthy things as detailed on his CV and statement, but of particular interest to me, he's also a strong supporter and promoter of the EGU journals which have brought a welcome breath of fresh air to scientific publication.

It's quite rare that I write a non-cynical and straightforward post, but in this case I'll make an exception as I think he's a good candidate and worth supporting.
