Dubai

Someone complained about the Paris picture being at the top of the page, so I thought I would update this briefly. Currently I’m in the no-mans land of international transit and sat in the airport of the Giant Sandpit City, otherwise known as Dubai. Flying in, I was reminded that really, we should be less worried about global warming and climate change, but development as a whole. Climate is changing, we’re almost definetely contributing to it, and changing our lifestyles will probably dampen the changes, but what use is that gonna be if we’ve screwed ourselves by irresponsible development in the first place. I’ll write more on this at another point when I’ve had more sleep, but to give you some food for thought, check out this little video.

Oh, and if you didn’t know, I’m flying out to Zanzibar to try and be a real scientist for once and study coral diseases there. My Masters has got a lot more fun.
