The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.

About meEdit

My name is Femke Nijsse and I'm a PhD researcher on climate variability and change at the university of Exeter ( I write for Wikipedia because I believe that accurate and neutral information about climate change can help us make informed decisions to get us out of this mess.

I have been active on the Dutch Wikipedia since 2013, mostly on physics, climate change and women in science. Now I'm mostly working on climate change related articles.

Figures and art project for climate changeEdit

I recently started language overarching project to improve figures and images on the topic of climate change. Wikipedia:WikiProject_Environment/Climate_change/Figures_and_art

Some of the currently used figures

  • Need updating
  • Need to contain less information: small-font additional info only clouds main message
  • Need to contain easily readable axis

  The Invisible Barnstar

Thanks for your participation in the September 2019 GA Backlog drive. Your 2 reviews made a difference, as did your willingness to review particularly old nominations. The work of editors like you helped bring down the unreviewed backlog by over 35%. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 18:34, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

  The GW & CC Barnstar
For being an endless fount of largescale vision and micro-gnomity in the climate pages, and always striving for civil intellectual integrity when dealing with stubborn situations!! And let's not forget creating Climate system and being the main contributor all the way through GA status! NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 21:15, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
