On Nuclear Power and 'Hating' America

Posted September 9, 2010 | 17:05:31 (EST)

I've been feeling itchy today, and haven't quite put my finger on why. At least I couldn't until a few minutes ago, when watching this video of the now-deceased, highly-respected climate scientist Stephen Schneider on a British show called Sceptics brought things into focus for me. I'm itchy...

The Little Dance Company That Could

Posted June 7, 2010 | 14:57:30 (EST)

That never-ending Colorado winter is finally over, and spring seemed to last about three days. What with it being summer and everything, you're probably spending most of your free time outside biking or working in the yard. But here's one reason to head back inside for an evening or two...

Anchorage, Pt. 1

Posted March 8, 2010 | 11:29:36 (EST)

One of the sad, comforting things about traveling to major U.S. cities is that they feel a whole lot like one another. Sure, New York has the New York thing and D.C. is D.C. and Chicago, Chicago. But on every corner are the same big-box stores and the same locals...

Haiti: Partners in Health

Posted January 15, 2010 | 13:08:35 (EST)

As with other timely affairs, I'm quite late in blogging about this. You all have probably already made donations for aid in Haiti. But if you haven't, I just want to put a plug in for Partners in Health. You can check out their website, and it's very easy to...

Climate Justice and Copenhagen

Posted December 10, 2009 | 11:50:05 (EST)

I've been meaning to write about Climategate, of course, but then again, that's a bit like whistling in the wind at the moment. If I can manage to clear my thoughts and say something that is interesting and meaningful and that hasn't already been said well (like here and...

Not Talking 'bout the Weather

Posted October 15, 2009 | 13:03:48 (EST)

One part of my job requires me to think about climate change communication. I think and write about how scientists and engineers talk about climate change, about how bloggers and environmental journalists write about it, and about how documentary films present it. Over the years, my thinking on the issue...

The Politics of Coal: Don't Write Off "Clean Coal" Yet

Posted October 12, 2009 | 15:01:10 (EST)

I'm giving two lectures this week at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) titled "The Politics of Coal." In those lectures, I'm trying to map out the debate over the future of coal-fired power plants for students. It has been interesting preparing those lectures, from an academic perspective, while...

Democracy and Global Warming

Posted September 25, 2009 | 14:11:16 (EST)

In the academic circles I run in, there is a lot of talk about how to bring citizen voices into debates over science and technology policy. So far, I've been involved in two "citizen consultations" on science policy, both of which have endeavored to give non-industry, non-government folks a chance...

A Night at the Orchestra

Posted September 21, 2009 | 17:41:38 (EST)

Because we have two little kids, a fancy night out has recently meant something like "order a quesadilla at Qdoba and stuff it in your gullet a little more slowly than you would at home." But, my husband just turned 39, so we figured we should probably get cultured up...
