Funded

June 27, 2012

When you have a history of epic swan dives, pratfalls,  and face plants such as those in my checkered career, you don’t automatically assume that everything will come off smoothly.

But here it is. About 30 hours after it began, the Kickstarter.com funding project to put Climate Denial Crock of the Week on a glacier this August is funded, and a go.

There are still 16 days to go in the fundraiser, but the rules make it clear that you must make the original funding goal, or you receive NONE of the pledges. Now that we’ve met that goal, the additional contributions still coming in just help firm up my bare bones funding proposal. What I’m saying is, don’t feel you have to stop now.  Any additions to the $4000 base proposal will definitely go to good use, and directly help improve the frequency and quality of these productions.

Deepest gratitude to all who pitched in, blogged, face booked, emailed and tweeted this project to their circles.  I’m looking forward to taking this series to a whole new level.

    A fast kickstart indeed. Thanks for covering science straight from the scientists.
