John's face has been front and center on the CP website now for nearly a week or so.  Nice exposure!  I find it interesting too, in that really, John's face is more prominent that Joe's face on the site.  

People are going to start calling it, "John Cook's Climate Progress blog."  :-)

Climate Progress.

Yeah I sent John and email with a screenshot of the page a couple days ago.  He didn't seem thrilled :-)

Yeah, I get the sense that John's a little camera shy.  I don't know why.  He's a good looking guy.

John should get the person who did Romm's caricature to do one of him. It could then be incorporated into the SkS home page.

I've always tried to make the blog as little about me as possible. Other blogs have a cult of personality feel and I've always tried to avoid that - making the science front and centre. Not that there anything wrong with those blogs, it's just not my style.

Rob, hopefully you'll be at AGU in December and we can finally meet. Then you can see my mug in the cold hard light of day. :-)

John, that would totally be fun!  We can pal around a bit.  I can show you the city.

Didn't the Aussies inherit the British dry sense of humor?

I'm hoping as many SkSers as possible can converge on San Francisco in December - we'll have to have some kind of SkS shindig. And Rob, would love to see the city - I'm very psyched about being able to visit the US. Hell, it's an event if I even get out of my blogging dungeon and out the front door, so this will be huge!

Yes, we Aussies inherited British humour - and their healthy sense of self deprecation :-)

BTW, Joe Romm's ears must be burning - he finally removed my pic from the header!

John...  Joe removed your picture and in it's place a picture that I think looks a lot like Dana.  ;-)
