Grace and Jeff, sans Jon, talk about some of the latest in carbon cycling research--terrestrial and aquatic! We also talk Jon's recent wedding, examine a new paper in Science focusing on the tropics, a great piece on science blogging, and talk about the podcast's upcoming anniversary. Oh, and cow farts. Lots about cow farts.

Rethinking the Scientific Career from Emily Bernhardt et al.
Baccini et al. 2017 "Tropical forests are a net carbon source based on aboveground measurements of gain and loss"
Saunders et al. "Bringing ecology blogging into the scientific fold: measuring reach and impact of science community blogs"
Kool Keith - "Trees"
Troubled Hubble - "I'm Pretty Sure I See Molecules"
Grace, Jon, and Jeff do a deep dive into having difficult conversations in the classroom around the current political and social climate and how to respond to situations in a thoughtful, and supportive manner. They also "Google" themselves--with mixed results.
