Tornado Quest Science Links And More For Nov. 9 – 16, 2014

A shorter post this week due to several previous commitments that require a great deal of attention and arduous work. One thing’s for certain…for much of North America, frigid temperatures have settled in for an early taste of winter. At the same time, folks in Alaska are basking in conditions that are warmer than many locations in the Southern Plains.

For your consideration, here are this week’s links…

ASTRONOMY

Check out this amazing video of NASA of our very active sun!

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE/SUSTAINABILITY

Once again, Scandinavia leads the way. Denmark is aiming for 100% renewable energy!

AOL is one of the latest companies to part ways with ALEC.

A new kind of “solar cloth” allows solar cells to be stretched across stadiums and parking lots.

ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE

As the California drought continues, water theft is on the rise.

If you thought October, 2014 was warm in the USA, you weren’t imagining things.

As time allows, I’ll likely add an article or two this week and re-post this on social media.

In the meantime, I’d like to welcome my new followers here on WordPress and on Twitter. I’m glad you’re along! Very sincere thanks to all the folks on Twitter who have re-tweeted and/or mentioned me this past week. I appreciate all of you.

Cheers!
