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 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.

    You deserve a great deal more gratitude and recognition than I could afford but I was very glad to be able to help a little. I’m looking forward to seeing the films you make.

    That is what I call a swift Kickstart. We will also be looking at the adjacent Deming Glacier . To get a feel for work on the Easton Glacier

    If you happen to swing through Bend, OR on your way to Mt. Baker, I can prove that there is such a thing as free lunch. 🙂
