I wish I could say that I deliberately started writing this blog on Groundhog Day, 2/2/2007 - - but I wasn't that clever. Though I did hit a water theme: call me prescient, or something.
And yes, 2/2/2007 was the day the UN declared that human behavior was driving climate change - - a major topic on this blog - - but I don't remember and did not the post story that day (in large measure because I couldn't get the hang of embedding links using the Blogger template):
On Feb. 2, 2007, the United Nations scientific panel studying climate change declared that the evidence of a warming trend is "unequivocal," and that human activity has "very likely" been the driving force in that change over the last 50 years.Truth is that I'd been thinking about starting a political and environmental blog (thank you for the kick in the pants, Xoff) and tinkered with Blogger and on 2/2/2007 hit "publish."
The blogging will continue here for at least another six weeks, regardless of the weather. Thanks for reading.
