Greetings everyone! I hope your autumn is to your liking and for folks in the southern hemisphere, here’s to a bountiful spring season. There are plenty of topics to go over, so let’s get started.
For your consideration, here are this week’s links…
Disasters of all kinds force us to reevaluate the importance we place on belongings.
Here’s a fascinating read on climate change and the human mind. If we’re not willing to introspectively examine our feelings on such an important topic, where does that leave us?
News coverage of recent droughts that carried a stern message may be the way to go…it just might help with the water waste issue.
WEATHER SAFETY/EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
Forest fires in Brazil and Indonesia contributed to a record loss in global tree cover in 2016, equivalent to the size of New Zealand, that could accelerate deforestation blamed for climate change.

St. Louis, Missouri has just taken the bold step of becoming the largest midwestern USA city to commit to clean energy.
I’ve always been of the opinion that NOAA’s National Weather Service is woefully understaffed, poorly funded, in need of twice as many Doppler radars, three times as many NOAA weather radio transmitter sites, and far better equipment and working conditions. This good read is my chance to say, “I told you so.”

Due to a combination of human activities and a strong El Niño, another CO2 record has been set…and what’s especially bad is that this happened at a record speed.
The water crisis in Puerto Rico that is taking place in the wake of Hurricane Maria could have been avoided.
That’s a wrap for this post! I’d like to welcome my new followers in social media…it’s great to have you along.
