Jared Diamond

Wendy, myself and about 1500 people went and saw Jared Diamond at TCU Place tonight.  He was what I expected.  Witty, gracious, concise, and profound.  He talked mostly of his work in Collapse but offered up some thoughts on the global economic collapse and global warming.  Sadly for a lot of defeated Liberal candidates, he offered up the best apologetic of the Green Shift that I have heard.  Too bad it came out now instead of prior to election day as it would have contributed greatly to the election debate.

I have some more thoughts on his talk and his book Collapse but that is for another night.  Tonight I need some sleep.
