Re: Hi all
I agree with your points, climate change is a bad science. Bangalore's climate is moderate and beautiful, but increasing the number of vehicles and pollution may impact on the climate of the city in future.

Re: Hi all
I like the idea of Future Cities trolling, Jon. On which note...

(1) Climate change is bad science.

(2) The more I learn about Vladimir Putin, the more I like him.

(3) Let's make more space for cars by axing bike lanes.

That should get things started.

Thanks, Rich, I think that encapsulates the new editorial direction. Would anyone like to write a blog on "Useless Old Architecture: Getting Rid of History"?

Re: Hate seeing you go but wish you the very best
I do know, like, and respect Kim Davis, and I think you are leaving the site in good hands.

Now thinking of a Message Board post of the month feature.

Re: Hi all
Rich! So nice to see your smiling - well, somber - mug again! Do you miss the FC gang yet? Of course you do. 

Nicole, Mary, do tell us that you - like Mr Heap - will log in from time to time? I am so fond of both of you and will miss you, your wry perspectives and your always informative posts so much. Tell me I'm not talking into thin air, writing all this. Tell me I don't look like quite the fool right now. 

Hello Kim, and congrats to you! Off to read a post of yours..

Never can say goodbye
A long overdue hats-off to Nicole, Mary, and Rich for all the groundwork you've laid and excellent work that's been brought to bear to give life to Future Cities, and sustaining it with such excellence. Sincerest thanks to each of you for your inspiration and vision -- we'll certainly miss you!

Added to the list along with:

If global warming is something real... how come we've got a couple of freezing polar vortex?

Sad to see you go
As you mention Nicole, has been quite a ride. Thank you for showing us plenty of different perspectives and intel about Future Cities (and Cities from today as well).

Everything needs to keep evolving and pivoting to stay on top and improve. I'm sure that Kim will be able to steer UBM's Future Cities on the right direction, even though you'll leave a high bar on how things were done.

Again, thank you for letting us be part of this community and even, to caroling with spaceships and lasers! (Where else could it be if not here!).

Re: Thank you!
Thanks Hazel. I'm now getting stuck in to the wind power sector, and energy markets in general. Lots of connections between that and cities so I hope to be able to share more soon.

Of, if you just fancy shooting the breeze, I'm on Twitter too. Not very good at tweeting regularly, but happy to get involved in a conversation if one crops up!

Re: Thank you!
Oh Nicole, you'll surely be missed! I'm hoping for the best for the future of Future Cities, and it has been a great run with you, Mary, and Rich at the forefront. I can only hope for things to get better.

I honestly feel like crying.. You will be sorely missed and it would be so sad not to have you around anymore! If you can share what you'll be up to in the future (or where we can all continue to "see" you around on the web or read your work), then please do.

Thanks for all that you've done here on Future Cities!
