This is an ongoing series of blog posts that will make up a majority of this blog for a while. For an explanation of what it’s about, you can check out the initial “announcement” post and the two prefaces, or you can just go to here and find all the posts I’ve made so far in this series. The most recent addition is likely to be either directly beneath this sticky, or not far below whatever IS there.
So it looks like weekly is a bit much to expect, given my attempt to maintain careers in science education and fiction writing, at least if I also want to retain my sanity.
That said, another series is upcoming on tiny-scale photovoltaics. Stay tuned!
Recommended reading: Global Weirdness by Climate Central. This book covers what we know about Earth’s climate. Scientists, almost by definition, are always working at the edges of our understanding. They’re more interested in what we DON’T know than anything else in the world, which means that they don’t tend to talk about what we DO know. As a result, a lot of what we hear about from scientists sounds uncertain. This book covers the things that ARE certain, and it’s a good primer in the basics of man-made global warming. It’s a relatively easy read, and well worth your time.
