It's been an interesting couple weeks for David Roberts of Grist. He's one of the more well-known and respected environmental writers, and he shocked everyone with his announcement that, after 10 years, he's taking a year off - no email, no Twitter, no computer, etc. And in his last days, he's written a few must-read final articles. The first explains why he's leaving for a year. Roberts is also one of the most prolific environmental Twitter users around, and in another post he explains his Twitter tips for the rest of us. And in his final post he explains if he has any hope that humanity will tackle climate change:
- "Goodbye for now "
- "For tweet's sake: How to get the most out of 140 characters"
- "Hope and Fellowship"
He also finished his Twitter-time with a list of 20 things he's learned during these years of writing about climate and politics. I've embedded the tweets here because they can easily relate to Peak Oil as well:
