I don’t want to get in trouble with my constituencies, but I can say this much. I was approached weeks ago, asking whether I would be willing to go on a major network, with Guy McPherson, Peter Wadhams, and several others, as the strong generalist voice. No promises were made, but this conversation continues. Materially and weekly.
Apparently an Emmy Award film maker is also involved, and a friend of our efforts has engaged him and been getting a helping hand as to best options and pathways.
We probably cannot get James Hansen, but tried. But have approached Michael E. Mann, Jason Box, Eric Rignot about joining us. Sam Carana has given serious input and is helping. Harold H. Hensel is doing a lot. Nich Breeze has generously given his help. And David Korn Special Projects has been gifting his time to help pull it together. If I say too much, it is wrong. But in the context of much else, would also be wrong not to share about what is seriously underway.
