I attended the ACURIL (Association of Caribbean University Research and Institutional Libraries) annual Conference which was held June 1-5 in Guadeloupe. This provided an excellent opportunity to network with my colleagues from the English, Dutch, French and Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands.

They were very receptive to my ideas outlined in my presentation Web 2.0, Library 2.0, Librarian 2.0 - Innovative Services for Sustainable Caribbean Libraries.

You need think about it. Despite the emails, the overwhelming evidence showing global warming is happening hasn't changed.
"The e-mails do nothing to undermine the very strong scientific consensus . . . that tells us the Earth is warming, that warming is largely a result of human activity," Jane Lubchenco, who heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told a House committee. She said that the e-mails don't cover data from NOAA and NASA, whose independent climate records show dramatic warming.
