The sequel to my "personal" post, but they both stand (or fall) alone


I know it's longfor SkS  but it's difficult to tell an historical tale without details, dates and blockquotes.

And I had to try to make sense of it in terms of climate change and Stephen Gardiner's ideas at the end. I don't want to split it up into two posts.

Could I please have some feedback on this post? I am concerned that it might not be right for SkS but I'm not sure. Perhaps it's too long, too boring, too far into political territory and too little to do with the science.

Please be brutally frank. I can probably get this posted elsewhere and my feelings won't be hurt. If we don't publish it on SkS, I'd have to tweak my other post on the same theme of "changing minds" before it is published here.

I like it. It's long, but an interesting story.  Thumbs-up from me.  It's more accurately described as a solutions post than a political post, so I don't think that's a problem.

I like it, too.

this headng should be rearraged:

What can we learn from this story about the climate change crisis?


What can we learn about the climate crisis from this story?

Thanks for the comments.

I changed the title to Changing Climates, Changing Minds: The Great Stink of London. Yes, it's about getting to a solution more than politics.

And Sarah's suggestion is a good one.

How about we make tomorrow Andy day and publish both your posts - are they ready?

I like this very much, being fond of historical research.

It gets a big thumb from me.

I will email both these posts to journalists on Monday. One is a doubter and he wrote a shocking opinion article in today’s paper – I know him well so will be blunt.
