AGU Day 2

The day was as sunny as hoped.

Weston Hotel, Union Square, San Francisco
As James already mentioned, we sprinted round the Embarcadero for a morning pastry, and then got a bus back to the hotel. In the peace and quiet of lunchtime we toured Tuesday's posters, on regional climate, tsunamis, and bit of paleo. My favourite poster was one on using Twitter to chart climate change expressed in terms of the location of armadillos. Second favourite was a study which analysed whether the climate change people thought they had experienced was consistent with actually observed trends. The answer seemed to be on the whole yes, but sometimes no.

Meanwhile, I am getting quite concerned about the San Franciscans' want of taste. Who would paint their house a color (sic) that clashes with the sky?!

And then there was this in the window of the supposedly top notch bakery...
Hello Kitty Cake in San Francisco!
I read Hello Kitty Hell for a few years but gave up recently, finally overwhelmed by the horrors it reports.
