Yes, I will be in the Lion's den, so to speak. Not sure how much must stands behind his roar though...We do have to deal w/ the skeptics here somewhat directly. At least, to the extent that I do presentations on capitol hill for USGCRP (I do one w/ Jim Hansen and Malcolm on the 17th of this month), I'm a bit in the fray. Mostly, though, I've been trying to help Mike McCracken and company behind the scenes. We all know what happens when a U.S. scientists becomes a thorn in the side of big business...
