The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

However, the conservative pundit still insists that the scientific community is still divided over the merits of Kyoto; I suppose that that's true if anything less than unanimity constitutes grounds for describing scientrists as "divided." But still...
