LA Times Festival of Books

Another good day of author panels at UCLA topped off by a new story written and performed by T.C. Boyle, one of the best entertainers in literature. I was pleased and honored to finally meet Bill McKibben. I'm a 350.org member and feature the number, which represents the safest level in parts per million of CO2 we can have in the atmosphere, in both of my novels. We stand at 391 and climbing. Without a price on carbon it will only get worse. We see the effects now and they are not good.

Hey, Mark. Did your see Marc Cooper or Celeste Fremon at the LAT Book Festival? I recently told each of them that I've made my last comment on their blogs, so they turned around and each banned me. Sort of like, "You can't quit, you're fired! So, I guess that leaves you and me, buddy.

So, what's new now that global warming has been disproven?

No I didn't. I only go to fiction panels, except for McKibben. I knew they were there but that stuff is so boring I don't bother with it. Well, they didn't believe you obviously. You always have GM if he's still alive.

Nothing has been disproven save to the deluded. You should join in on Dot Earth. Plenty of winger company there. They're wrong too.

Yeah, they didn't like what I had to say, especially if it was something against them. But, I didn't like the stupid responses from folks like reg and the restrictions on conservative commenters that didn't apply to the liberals.

G.M. is fine, and I'm still posting over there. Come on over and say hello.

I figured that global warming was over when Gore bought that mansion on the beach. After all, he wouldn't buy a house so close to sea level if he thought that it would be covered up in five years.

I had not heard of Dot Earth, but when I saw the NYT label with it, I didn't think that it would have many conservatives commenting.

BTW, what are you doing these days? Are you writing or involved in fish & game or the environment?

I find that conservatives get all the leeway on comments. Including on Dot Earth. I call it the conservative action program. Liberals, unlike conservatives, are generally afraid to offend. In newspapers their corporate sponsors and potential readers.

I'm writing novels and fighting West Nile virus, which is more prevalent in a warmer world. Disease rules such a place. Don't worry though Woody, while you deny, we'll fix it. How 'bout that Nashville eh? Atlanta is next. Batten yer hatches matey!
