Dear Sir, I always read your posts and thank you for my continuing education on all matters climatic. My only gripe is that you give too much homework with your supporting links and I sometimes do not complete my assignments! ... Anyway, please keep up the great work.I'm flattered, I do like putting a lot of links out there and I believe it's valuable information to help people gain a more complete understanding of our Earth for themselves. I'm happy to know there are some who also think it worth investing the time to learn about it. Thanks Ian.

It will be a valuable addition to my collection of resources for the serious student of the attack on science.
