8. wow--great article. thanks for posting this

i'm no scientist but this topic has been a very important part of my life for the past thirty years.

i feel the sadness about what i perceive as the impending doom of climate change. i feel a weird relief that i won't live to see the brunt of it (at least i hope i don't). i feel a tremendous sadness for my daughter who is married. she says she wants to have a child but goes back and forth on this issue--because of climate change. AND YET, in spite of what i have taught her since childhood, she continues to do things that are in direct opposition of what is beneficial for the environment (such as driving a gas guzzling suv, recycling maybe or when it is convenient, not interested in the reduce/reuse/recycle lifestyle, not interested in a vegetarian diet, water and electricity waster, blablabla).

i imagine it's very difficult for these scientists who become emotionally invested -- and how could they not? i would guess it was their love and concern for this planet that lead them into this particular scientific field.

again, thanks for posting this article.
