  1. I didn’t download the course guide. They wanted too much information about me. Must be a secret. However I did glean this:

    Reflect critically on climate policy issues and practical challenges in diverse contexts.

    No need for an expensive course. Dover should hand out “certificates” after a month at the Cat where we do plenty of critical reflection and discuss practical challenges from our many diverse contexts.

    Oh. That’s right. We are barking for the wrong side of the issue. Silly me.

  3. I wonder if the kids from XR have the attention span to complete a university course, even one as soft as this, though it assumes a prior degree.

    This one is for the more committed devotees who wish to become advisers to politicians and inflict some real damage on human beings rather than the artifacts of a culture they are incapable of appreciating.

  4. From the memory hole:

    “Remember, remember,
    The Fifth of November.
    Gunpowder, Treason and Plot!”

    The question remains:
