No phd for me (yet)

The faculty of science did not see fit to give me a phd. And I don't know why, as no feedback is given. I wonder if I would get any explanation if I wrote the dean and asked him.
Maybe I'll apply again in february.

Denmark rocks

Sometimes I manage to appreciate the little wonderful things in life. I've forgotten my bike-lights on the bike three times lately, when I've parked the bike different places in Copenhagen. And all three times the lights were there when I got back.
Two of the times some nice person had even turned them off, saving the battery. Yay!

An Inconvenient Truth

Lise and I went to see the movie An Inconvenient Truth. It was a great and somewhat depressing movie. At the end the audience is encouraged to spread the word. I could participate here, but instead I'll buy the DVD when it comes out (26. December on, and lend it to anyone who wants to see it.

Meanwhile it is usefull to think about that for the last 5 years the Danish government has been sitting on its hands, stopping practically all programs related to CO2 reduction in Denmark. See here and here. And a status of the policy until 2005.
The latest development is that the Danish prime minister once again blindly does what George W. Bush does, namely claim that "energy independence" is an important goal, and for that reason, something should be done about Denmarks consumption of oil.

I've made my first public calendar for Google Calendar. It contains the presentations arranged by FritForum Copenhagen. The schedule is already available here, but if you press the button below the calendar will be automatically added to your google calendar. I'll even try to keep it updated with changes.

Everyone is welcome to attend a few presentations to see if they want to join FritForum.
