  1. Just taking a minute to say how much I appreciate ClimateYou.
    Being in Australia, it is a terrific way to keep in touch w/
    cutting edge developments in the American – and global – response
    to climate change. The succinct summary paragraphs are models
    of clear thinking, truly a voice of reason. And I thought the

    Very Well Done! Keep Up the Good Work!
