An erarlier version of this post mistakenly referred to L1.
What is L2?
L2 is a Lagrange point and destination of the James Webb; there the gravitational pull of the Earth and Sun on an object balance the centrifugal effect on an object. Thus, objects can orbit this point without a planet or other large body to anchor their orbit.

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. Climate change is one of the two great challenges facing humanity (the other is nuclear weapons). In writing about the impact of climate change I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide.
As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy.
This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know.
I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look.
