Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be flying off for three nights to chilly Copenhagen, Denmark, where I’ll be getting the lay of the land at the COP15 UN climate change conference.
The trip is dual purpose: I’m hoping to get a more tangible sense of the intersections between domestic and international politics on the climate change issue for purposes of this blog, and I’m also hoping to knock out a few interviews for my book, which will include extensive material on climate change forecasting.
Apart from that — I figure it will mostly be a lot of watching and listening. And I’ve never been to Denmark or anywhere else in Scandinavia before, so sampling some of the local beer/food/etc. is also on the agenda.
Posting times will be a bit irregular for the next week. If you need to reach me, however, I should be online rather frequently, subject to the time zone difference. I do still have some interview slots free, so if you have suggestions on people at your organization I ought to speak with — or are yourself someone I ought to speak with — please don’t hesitate to contact me.
