Feb 25, 2023 There will be no TWTW this week.

I'm returning from the superb 15th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC) that concluded last night in Orlando. The conference featured excellent presentations on diverse topics by knowledgeable speakers who understand the strengths and weaknesses of different views on climate change and energy policy. The speakers encouraged individual thought, rather than reinforced groupthink. This was the best ICCC conference yet!  

TWTW will resume on March 4 with discussion on some of the 15th ICCC topics key to TWTW.
