     The  Geological  Column  Grows  One  Stratigrapher  At   A  Time

As surely as  Bob Carter  was an  excellent  marine  stratigrapher, 
and  one  of  the  foremost  Friends  of  Science 
there's  something  firmamentally  wrong  with Watts'  eulogy
has he been studying astronomy with the Cornwall Alliance again ?

Dr. Robert Carter, scientist, climate skeptic, pioneer, friend – R.I.P

I was shocked and saddened to read this, I’m passing it on without comment because I can’t write about this at this moment. See update below.
UPDATE: I have gathered my thoughts.
Bob Carter’s sudden death reminded me that life is tenuous, and that what we view as firmament can be taken from us in an instant.
