Yes indeed, Earth matters! It’s the only planet we have! But it is also a wonderful planet, a planet that is “just right”. As an earth scientist, I have the privilege to discover all the extraordinary ways our planet works, from deep in its core to high in the atmosphere.
But as an earth scientist, it is also my duty to act as a “spokesman” for Planet Earth, by putting current Earthly matters in their proper Earthly perspectives. More than ever, our society is confronted with pressing Earthly matters, such as climate change, resource shortages, the planetary boundaries, geohazards.
Sharing my astonishment about the wonders of our planet, sharing my opinion on Earhtly matters, that’s what I have in mind to do in this blog. Morover, this blog also serves as my portfolio, from research papers, science outreach articles and videos, to op-eds.
