One of the things I constantly* hear from Gristmill readers is, "David, we adore your writing, but what about your voice? We long to hear it!"

Well I give my fans what they want, so this morning, at the nightmarish hour of 7:00AM, I dragged my ass out of bed and spoke on the phone with Earthbeat Radio, a syndicated public-radio show out of D.C. The subject was “political climate change”: Bush’s alleged new climate policy, Gore’s climate-policy speech, and related issues.

Grist relies on the support of generous readers like you. Donate today to keep our climate news free.

If you’re eager to hear my congested, foggy, morning croak, you can download the show as an mp3 here (it’s the second link down). You’ll just have to trust me that my voice is much more mellifluous after several cups of coffee.
