I have recently been following some of the work of a colleague of mine, Kjartan, who is a recently graduated PhD working in my university’s Industrial Ecology department. He has an impressive number of publications behind him for someone who’s just finished his PhD and has been quite active in the media lately (both local … More Long distance ground transport – is it worth it?
My dad is planning on coming to Europe for the first time since the early 1980s (I think… I don’t know but it was before I was born).
