CLIMATE CHANGE (PDF) – Here you will find writings on global warming and other aspects of climate change. They range from the popular to the highly technical. Be warned! I am a scientist, not an activist. I believe that carbon dioxide is an important element in the current global warming, but I do not believe that is the only contributing factor or even the most important one.
THE KINETIC ATMOSPHERE (PDF) – This section contains papers viewing atmospheric characteristics and behavior through the lens of kinetic gas theory and statistical mechanics. Some of the papers may be understood by an intelligent and well-educated layperson. Others require some familiarity with atmospheric physics, kinetic gas theory, statistical mechanics, and mathematics through the calculus. Test yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised.
OTHER WRITINGS (PDF) – This section contains a wide variety of writings on a wide variety of subjects. It contains articles written for popular magazines and books, philosophical writings, political writings, and even—gasp!—romantic and erotic poetry.
