Are Climate Bats More Like Fruit Bats or Vampire Bats?

January 28, 2010

Friend and colleague Tom Yulsman has a nice post over at the Center for Environmental Journalism on the recent Chiroptera kerfuffle. Meanwhile, friend and colleague Roger Pielke Jr. has several — lots and lots of — nice posts over on his blog. Oh, yeah, and the London Times has an article, as does Der Spiegel.

I’ve basically been watching this issue unfold from afar, partly because I mentioned it a while back and someone in the comments said that I was late to the game (which I think I wasn’t) and also because I think it probably safe to say that Roger’s on top of it.

Even still, I may be piping in soon. Depends if I can get this grant application finished before the Feb 1 deadline. Meanwhile, read the above posts and catch up on the hurricane discussion.

Stay tuned, same bat time, same bat channel.


  1. Hey, philosophers are SUPPOSED to be late–“owl of Minerva” and all that.

    • Hadn’t thought of it that way. But you’re right. I’ll spread my wings at dusk, folks.

  2. “on top of it”

    Delicately put.
