It seems a safe time as I write this to say Barack Obama is the 44th president of the United States. James Hansen will be heartbroken to see George Bush leave, but let’s hope the next 4 years goes well. Here is a bit on Obama and climate change. I did like McCain’s stance on nuclear power, which will inevitably be involved in the future if a predominant fossil-fuel based economy fades away, but Obama did say that energy issues were a large priority.
