I’ve been hanging out in Boulder, Colorado, this weekend, and saw a pair of bald eagles yesterday on a hike–and a lot of these little guys at right, which were everywhere. I also saw a golden eagle in a cage, presumably being rehabilitated. Plus, I got to hang out with the Bad Astronomer–so it has been a pretty good trip so far.
And now to business: The first seminar of the year at NCAR’s Earth System Laboratory will be on communication, as befits a growing interest in the topic here. I’m the speaker, and will be talking about our “Unscientific America” and what scientists can do to better connect with the society in which they’re embedded.
