THANK YOU for inspiring us and giving us hope in Vancouver last night. Well done. Please consider continuing to help folks understand how to communicate about this issue (especially since there is not yet a date for public comment). Help people understand what an elevator speech is, how to post a nut graph or sentence on FB, and perhaps how to borrow from principles of effective communication learned from the climate change arena (http://sciencepolicy.colorado.edu/students/envs3100/oneill_nicholson2009.pdf). Perhaps this is (or was?) a series of flash cards?
