I forgot to mention in my email that I presented the "dark and foreboding" side of climate science (my principle of generality), an admittedly one-sided view.  But I like an awful lot of the "disciple" science too, as well as the scientists, and for much of that the standard view of science and scientists applies (my principle of locality). 

It's just that I don't need to talk about the bright side - everybody does.  Missing is the "dark side", a perspective that I can contribute.  Strangely, this also applies to history and most themes, where I seem to end up on the "dark side" so often - or perhaps better stated, I am one of the very few who discusses it at all.
