Life has been busy, so in case you missed it, let’s do some catching up on Hot White Snow and The Dake Page.
Hot White Snow is where you’ll find my more “creative” writing, includiing responses to writing prompts, some memoir-ish works, and articles “On Writing.” Featured recently:
- My Precious: A short essay on time, writing, and Golem. Written in response to a one-word writing prompt.
- Bedtime: A slightly erotic suggestion.
- The Fake Life: Ruminations on staying employed…barely.
- Crossroads in History: Lincoln and the Civil War. Another writing prompt response.
- Abandoned Writing: How to resurrect old writing for new life.
- The Invisible Fall: A vivid memory of an event that never happened.
- South of the Border: What country is Texas?
The Dake Page focuses on communicating science to the general populace, with a sometimes emphasis on climate change. Recent articles:
- Antarctica is Melting and Attorneys General are Going After ExxonMobil: An update on two major climate change stories.
- Science Communication and How to Deal with Trolls on Facebook: Trolls on Facebook? No way you say.
- A Consensus on Consensus: New study proves old studies.
- The Surreal Case of Sarah Palin vs Bill Nye the Science Guy: The title pretty much says it all.
- 175 Nations Sign Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day: Here’s what it means.
- Will Thinking in Collective Terms Lead to More Climate Action?: Perhaps not so much.
- The Discovery of Global Warming by Spencer R Weart: A book review.
I’ll save the update on Science Traveler posts for another day.
David J. Kent has been a scientist for thirty-five years, is an avid science traveler, and an independent Abraham Lincoln historian. He is the author of Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity (now in its 5th printing) and two e-books: Nikola Tesla: Renewable Energy Ahead of Its Time and Abraham Lincoln and Nikola Tesla: Connected by Fate. His book on Thomas Edison is due in Barnes and Noble stores in July 2016.
