A new Maunder Minimum?

Over the last few years you might have caught wind of people talking about reduced energy output from the sun. This is nothing new. Many of you know that the sun has an approximately 11 year cycle that can be tracked by sunspots. During the 11 year cycle, the energy emitted from the sun varies […]

I Rolled My Eyes

This is a difficult subject to write about, because it goes without saying that protecting the environment is a good thing. I always encourage people to live responsibly, take care of “nature”, and lower their impact, but I do this without having to say “otherwise, the world is going to end”. There have been apocalyptic […]

Climate Comparisons

When people talk about the climate of the earth, they usually only refer to the recent past. Throughout earth’s history, the planet has at times been mostly ice-free and MUCH warmer than today, and almost completely covered in ice and snow. We’ve had significant glacial periods within the last few hundred thousand years and the medieval […]

“Climate Change” is real bad

I usually am not prone to hype unless it is necessary, but there is a big problem out there. The generic term “Climate Change” is awful. You might remember that the special story I produced about how the climate of Northcentral has changed over the last 50 to 100 years had the words “Climate Change” […]

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 […]

Environmental Action Continues

You might recall that a couple of months ago there was a great outburst of angst, criticism, depression, and anger about the future of the planet. What was the reason? The president of the United States called the Paris Climate Agreement a “bad deal” and removed the country from participation. I blogged about the decision […]

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 […]
