Another Introduction

Dear all,

Hmmmm. I've been lurking for quite a while too, so it is probably about
time that I owned up to reading some of your exchanges from time to time.

I would be interested to learn what prompted our friend "Paracelcus
Eulenlehrer" to choose those particular names to speak under. Might it be
because the followers of Paracelsus (and Paracelsus himself) had rather a
hard time at the hands of the establishment?

Anyway, I'm in the privileged position in being in a world-leading
institution that is greatly interested in the history of the earth as well
as its future, and that does not have any objections to me being a
Christian or a creationist. So I am happy to be known by my real name, Tim.
For more details about my climate research or the Climatic Research Unit,
use the link in my signature at the bottom.

I have avoided making any contributions thus far for two reasons:

1. I dislike the abuse / flames that come from some of the emails sent to
this list. Call me a wimp, but although I enjoy debate, I dislike personal
remarks and abuse. So if you want to get me off the list, then send me abuse!

2. I don't have the time to make substantial contributions to debates about
which I am not particularly knowledgable, so I propose to limit my
contributions to climate-related issues, about which I do know a little.

I look forward to some interesting discussions.
