Back in a world of slush and melting snowmen, I make some extra coffee to try to stay awake. Undoubtedly, having kids who wake you up at 5.30 am puts a certain twist to any eastbound jetlag.

On Tuesday I have agreed to give a talk at the university student association of international affairs (UPF) about Pinker’s Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress. As I am expecting at least a couple of German exchange students, I guess any mention of the word "nuclear" will spark a lot of emotions. Which is perhaps not so surprising given the impact that anti-nuclear books like Gudrun Pausewang’s Die Wolke have had on whole generations of German kids.
