One way the Azimuth Project can help save the planet is to get bright young students interested in ecology, climate science, green technology, and stuff like that. So, [as planned out a while back](http://forum.azimuthproject.org/discussion/1140/helping-jb-write-for-azimuth/), David Tweed and I have been writing an article for _Math Horizons_, an American magazine for undergraduate math majors.

Here's a draft:

* [Monte Carlo Methods in Climate Science](http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/horizons.pdf).

It's been really a delight for me to write this, since David Tweed has put a lot of work into things I can't do very well - writing software illustrating the concepts - and this has let me focus on what I'm good at, namely writing. But so far he's done most of the work, and now it's time for me to polish the writing a few more times.

We'd really like to hear your comments! Personally, the kind of comments I _don't_ want are ones asking for more technical details. The kinds I _do_ want are ones where you sincerely don't understand something, or feel that students would have trouble understanding something. We're trying to cover a few big ideas rather rapidly, and that's hard to do well.
