of the code and content for GreenHouse Gas Online was written
late at night during the first six months after the birth of my
daughter, Maddy. Thanks to her for making sure I was kept awake
enough to carry on and write into the early hours!
Biggest thanks to my wife Sarah for putting up with my boring
talk about what picture best sums up livestock methane and whether
the site was ever going to be publishable on the web.
Thanks to my Labrador Flo for the numerous comic moments and
sock pinching during the last year. Phil Ineson, this photo's
especially for you.
Thanks also to the University of Edinburgh's Institute of Ecology
and Resource Management and the Natural Environment Research Council
for inspiring me to come up with the website and for paying my
mortgage each month.
Much of the background material comes from the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change's in depth book 'Climate Change 2001:
The Scientific Basis'. Pages describing global warming are in
general based on information in Sir John Houghton's excellent
book 'Global Warming: The Complete Briefing'.
Finally, thanks to all those visitors to my Southern Ocean website
who have been so complimentary, despite its many faults, and have
given me the encouragement to continue writing HTML and designing
websites in the little bits of spare time I have.
