andrew revkin and me

yesterday, over on myspace, andrew revkin found me. and this would be the perfect example of why i heart myspace. he's a science writer for the ny times. he'd read a post i'd left on another global warming (global climate disruption) myspace page and sent me a message. he's responsible for the video you now see linked to the right. all of that snapping and popping is ice at the north pole breaking and cracking beneath he and the other scientists there that day. pretty freakin' wild!

i've been writing back and forth with him, and found out that he has a new children's book out about global climate disruption. it's called THE NORTH POLE WAS HERE.
you can read the first chapter online. i think the idea is that it is written for children 10+. so that even elected officials will be able to understand.

he asked that i help spread the word. and here we are. feel free to pass it on!
