I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog.

Never ever thought I would obtain the information I want in this article. I've been looking everywhere in the internet for some time now and was starting to get discouraged. Luckily, I came onto your page and got exactly what I was struggling to find.

Have you heard about the research "Europe's Share of the Climate Challenge: Domestic Actions and International Obligations to Protect the Planet" from the Stockholm Environmental Institute? It shows how Europe can cut domestic emissions by 40% in 2020, and by 90% in 2050, compared to 1990 levels. That is excellent news. Hope the US are doing their share too.

Guess the place hasn't changed much. Some places in Africa look pretty inaccessible too. I assumed most of Africa (including Sahara region) would be inhabited.<br /><br />Looking at the 'human footprint index' map, it was surprising to see so much green in China, but then I realized this was the tibetian part I was looking at ;-) Mon, 01 Feb 2010 15:24:35 -0500 William@philosophy degree <a class="comment_auth" href="" alt="" title="">Ibnu</a> on <a href="/blogs/post/2009/12/08/On-Doctoring-the-Planet.aspx#id_7160c489-a546-430a-b787-a48aee743cc2" alt="/blogs/post/2009/12/08/On-Doctoring-the-Planet.aspx#id_7160c489-a546-430a-b787-a48aee743cc2">On Doctoring the Planet</a> I have been working extensively on using science to help river restoration, as well as thinking about the relationship between science and policy. I think what we have to strive to avoid is "stealth issue advocacy" - pretending to be unbiased interpreters of the scientific word while advocating.
