Yesterday was a busy day for me. I had a radio interview in the morning that generated so much traffic to my website that it overloaded the server, and I had to defer traffic from it. I spent much of yesterday morning managing that network issue from my WiFi connection in my hotel room.
I missed the morning sessions and lunch as a result.
My presentation yesterday afternoon got moved from 2PM to 4:45PM so that I could do a live interview with Glenn Beck on CNN Headline News. During that interview I got to meet Willie Soon an astrophysicist and Bob Carter from James Cook University, Australia who were there waiting as well, we had a lively conversation.
The Glenn Beck interview was short, as I was the last one on the show and he ran out of time, and I was unable to complete the point I wanted to make. Such is the way of live television, been there done that.
Overall I was surprised at how many people yesterday came up to me and said very positive things about my work, people who I’ve known and those I’ve never met, which was the most surprising thing.
My presentation at 4:45 was well received, and many people came up afterwards to talk about it. One fellow who got up to ask a question said something I thought was quite telling:
“There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that you’ve pointed out serious issues with the way temperatures are being measured in the USA. The bad news is that the USA has the best temperature measurement network in the world.”
When I return home, I’ll make my presentation available to everyone on the surfacestations.org website.
