Just a quick update: Jim Hansen will be speaking Friday in New York about global warming and the recent kerfuffle at NASA. I said it was a press conference; it isn't, he is instead speaking as part of panel on the recent attacks on science. I wish I could go! The speaker lineup is very impressive. I have also been told it won't be webcast, which is unfortunate. However, a lot of press will be there, so we'll be reading about it this weekend.
