I'm a British mathematician, been in the Netherlands for 35 years ("chercher la femme"). Recently became a double proud grandfather. Have a compulsion, but it's not secret, to want to correct miscarriages of justice involving abuse of science, see Dhamaka's plea

THE 9-11 was my 50th birthday. That's why I use it in my internet name, but English fashion, 11-9. The other part is my surname.

This is a brief glimpse at the garden of our real house "Combray" on Bosweg in Apeldoorn.

They are really delicious! Our best year ever. (Global warming?)

It would be sad to think it was a result of global warming. Our grapes never flowered this year. Winter hung on throughout Spring though, and we didn't get much of a summer. I'm jealous of *everyone's* grapes! :D

@Caine: You're in North Dakota, we're in Netherlands... some places get hotter, others get colder.

Yep. We're getting colder. Just what I don't like...

We get more variable. Hottest this, coldest that, driest this, wettest that.. all the time.

Actually personally I suspect it is not really so much to do with human activity. And if so, a nice warm blanket of CO2 might actually postpone the next ice-age by a year or two. It's going to come and nothing is going to stop it.

Did you know H2O is a much worse greenhouse gas than C2O?

BTW I do believe we humans have a problem - multiplying and consuming everything like a plague of locusts - but I'm pretty sure nature will sort that out in her own time. In the meantime we should live aesthetically and ethically and enjoy ourselves if we are able to.
