Item #d98sep2

As the new editor of Global Climate Change Digest, it is my pleasure to join CEI in its task of providing people with objective and accurate information about the environment and our stewardship of it. After earning degrees in chemistry, technical writing, and mass communication at Boston College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and the University of Illinois, respectively, and serving as senior editor of technical publications at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, I have been involved in a number of projects. They include editing the newsletter of the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center, writing U.S. position papers on environmental policies for U.N. conferences, compiling bibliographies on tropical forests and land use, editing books to guide environmental decision makers, and documenting workshops and meetings on global climate change and its assessment.

I commend my predecessor, Bob Pratt, for his fine job, spanning more than a decade. On the one hand, I hope to live up to his high standards; on the other hand, I expect to bring a different perspective and a different mix of experiences to the position. I anticipate that changes will be made as the publication and I mature, but those changes will be evolutionary, not revolutionary. And as in evolution, if they do not produce positive advantages, they will face demise.

I look forward to this new challenge and the intellectual stimulation that it will bring to me and, I hope, to the readers of the Digest.
