I do know that I enjoyed my climate research. I love tackling ‘big problems’. Here we have the most controversial topic of the day, with scientists divided, with everyone saying it’s complicated, and I was able to cut through all the nonsense and figure out what was really going on, starting from first principles. And it wasn’t because I brought any special knowledge, or even cleverness, to the project. It was actually quite straightforward. It took only the courage / confidence / hubris to engage the problem. Lots of you could have done it better.
