Congratulations to Roger Pielke jr.!!!

Here the announcement from Roger's department:
Roger Pielke, Jr., has been awarded an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy from Linköping University, one of Sweden's top universities that focuses on interdisciplinary research and teaching. He will travel to Sweden in late May to attend their graduation ceremonies and receive the award.
Klimazwiebel, which is "orientiert am Leitbild des 'honest broker', cordially salutes to Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Roger Pielke jr.! We totally subscribe to the statement of the Linköping university:
In awarding the degree Linköping noted Roger's "outstanding achievement in interdisciplinary climate research is a bold and refreshing voice in the climate debate. You have taken on public discussions with the IPCC, environmentalists as well as climate sceptics. You are profoundly committed to both use science to critically scrutinize policies and political decisions, and to deeply engage in finding ways of enhancing dialogues between science and policy."

For an obfuscated mind like mine, I would say that 'honorary' and 'doctor of philosophy' are somewhat contradictory.
Roger deserves more :-)

Roger Pielke Jr is an avid soccer fan. Is that a Newcastle shirt behind him?

Thanks Werner and Klimazwiebel! Except for the scoreline (8-1 Bayern, ouch) that was close to a perfect day ;-)
