If you only browse headlines, you are probably not getting the complete story. Headlines are meant to grab your attention so the most dramatic rise to the top. When it comes to changes in the earth’s climate you are probably either seeing “The Earth is Doomed” or “Global Warming is a Scam” most of the […]

Grain Ethanol Strikes Again?

An interesting story here out of Iowa. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/03/170329122619.htm They are having trouble with drinking water. Nitrates in the water have increased so much in recent years that they have needed to add extra nitrate removal systems. In Des Moines, nitrate removal costs the city $7,000 per day. As is often the case, one of the first […]

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.

Climate Change – it is all on you and me

Our lighting is more efficient in the past. Our manufacturing plants crank out more stuff with less material. Our agriculture is so productive it produces enough food to feed the entire world (hunger problems in the present day are largely political in nature).
