Entire Nations Could be Wiped Off the Face of the Earth

“Entire Nations Could be Wiped Off the Face of the Earth”….by rising sea levels, if global warming is not reversed. Yes, that could happen, but it didn’t. Let me add a couple of words from the quote, to put it into greater perspective. “Entire nations could be wiped off the earth by rising sea levels, […]

What is a “good” climate?

One of the more difficult things about being a broadcast meteorologist is that different people enjoy different seasons. I probably like Fall the best, but I enjoy all of the seasons. I like to see the changes. I enjoy a fresh snow almost as much as green garden. This is not the case for most […]

The pros and cons of fracking

I just wanted to update a blog entry from last year “The United States of Clean Energy” Because of the proposed solutions to combat anthropogenic global warming (AGW, or “climate change”), it is a very political subject, and difficult to discuss pragmatically. One very positive story I have been mentioning for a few years now […]

Flooding & Growing Again

If you have been following the weather recently, you have probably heard news and seen some amazing sights coming out of California. Since the middle of December, there are many places in Northern California that have received between 7 and 15 inches of rain – essentially 6 months worth of rain in a little over a […]

Fantastic Environmental News

I have to admit, maybe most people will not celebrate the news as much as me, but I think it is fantastic anyway. Americans are having fewer kids (and spending more money on pets). Some demographers noticed the trend after the great recession of 2008. It continues through today. More people are delaying or foregoing […]

Extreme Hipocrisy?

I experienced an enormous sense of de-ja-vu a couple of weeks ago. There is a new movie about the potential dangers of “climate change”. It is called “Before the Flood“, but I will forgive you if you think the title could be “An Inconvenient Truth“. Before I begin an epic but not very unique rant about […]

Yes Virginia, There is a Carbon Cycle

With all the talk of Peak Oil and anthropogenic global warming (AGW), many people often forget that the earth has a natural carbon cycle. The carbon that is under the crust doesn’t stay there forever. The carbon in the atmosphere doesn’t stay there forever. It is naturally recycled in a myriad of ways. Almost every […]

Not so permanent 400

What is in a number? There are many numbers that are marked as milestones, like every decade of your life (birthdays). Silver, gold, and diamond anniversaries are marked at 25, 50, and 75 years of marriage. The turning of the seasons and each year on the calendar are often noted as special events. I though a […]

Innovation and progress – a winning strategy

The very paradoxical and antagonistic nature of our national economic and environmental policy continues. I hate to beat a dead horse, but if our national economic policy is grow, grow, grow and build, build, build, there are going to be environmental consequences. I’ve got news for economic planners: houses, strip malls, and parking lots require […]
