It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

This morning's tweets

I think I was on. Nothing you haven't heard before, but in pithy quotable 140-character chunks. Kicked off by my pointing Fab at my article CO2 On Trial

What did you learn from this exchange?

About Fab? He's drank the kool-ade. Nothing to be done about him as an individual.

Not an exchange really. I just wanted to keep some of my pithy quotes form vanishing down the Twitter memory hole.

Michael, your "CO2 on trial" piece was magnificent. I agreed with every word of it! You have a rare ability to get to the heart of the matter succinctly. If only you had a larger audience 8^(!

Thanks immensely, Mal.

I need to develop self-promotion skills even though I really hate tooting my own horn very much.

Yes, I think he has. It's unfortunate because - as you've said - some of his writing is pretty good, but he seems to have a real blindspot when it comes to this topic. It's hard to take someone seriously when they're so misinformed about a topic you think you understand. Also, the whole Rick Santorum incident didn't do him any favours.
