Big Conference; small fish
Penny Wong pretty much confirmed to a room of almost 1000 adaptation researchers that in the big political game of climate change, climate adaptation is a small fish at best. - Ryan from Bookmarklet

Wrong thinking about emissions and adaptation. - http://adaptalready.wordpress.com/2010...
Adaptation policy does not need emissions policy in order to proceed. Environmental change is happening whether we reduce emissions or not, and it would be a good idea to work on that. - Ryan from Bookmarklet

Defending democracy: How can Homeland Security incorporate privacy and civil rights concerns into its R&D process? - http://www.nature.com/news...
Using physiological indicators such as heart rate and breathing, these devices would screen individuals at stadiums, airports and other possible terrorism sites for what the DHS inelegantly calls "malintent". Lee rejects my suggestion that FAST is leading the DHS into the territory of Minority Report, a movie in which authorities monitor citizens to predict crimes before they happen. But when I ask her about political and ethical concerns raised by her FAST panel, the DHS public-affairs officer monitoring our interview interrupts, saying: "We're not going into that level of detail." Such interdictions do not relieve one's paranoia. - Ryan from Bookmarklet

Our Fix-It Faith and the Oil Spill - NYTimes.com
"Americans have long had an unswerving belief that technology will save us — it is the cavalry coming over the hill, just as we are about to lose the battle. And yet, as Americans watched scientists struggle to plug the undersea well over the past month, it became apparent that our great belief in technology was perhaps misplaced." - Ryan from Bookmarklet
Why the #NYT article on public opinion and #climate change is off the mark. #agw - http://rogerpielkejr.blogspot.com/2010...
The public is in fact doing just fine. It is the media and other elites who continue to carry along an incoherent narrative who are doing most of the struggling. When they start listening to what the public is actually saying, rather than trying to force public opinions into a predefined but ultimately unrealistic mold, might be the time when debate over climate policy truly opens up. - Ryan from Bookmarklet
A prominent paper is calling climate change a distraction in the fight against malaria. What does this mean? I believe we should see it as a lesson in science policy. - Ryan from Bookmarklet

Slate: #Adaptation has nothing to do with saving the planet? Umm... then what's it for? #Happy Earth Day #agw - http://adaptalready.wordpress.com/2010...
"I would say that adaptation is precisely about saving the planet, if by planet you mean humans and the environment. Adaptation is all about finding ways to deal with pervasive, inevitable, uncertain change. “Saving the planet” absolutely requires that we figure this out, whether you’re worried about overpopulation, climate change, disease pandemics, or robot armies a la Terminator." - Ryan from Bookmarklet
