"Meet Danny Bloom , a Dot Earth comment contributor at the New York Times who is originally from Boston but now lives in Asia and has been a frequent and interesting voice here. I invited comment writers to post a video greeting, if they choose. The DOT EARTH community now stretches from Kenya to Taiwan to Brazil.

Viewers are welcome to chime in with their comments, both pro and con, on the issues of climate change and global warming.
