Greetings everyone! El Nino and other climate topics have been given a good deal of discussion lately and we’ve got some links covering those topics. The latest State Of The Climate report from NOAA is out…and I’ll let the data speak for itself. With the ongoing heat wave across much of North America, I’ve included some summer heat safety info along with hurricane preparedness links. Let’s get started.
For your consideration, here are this week’s links…
Few things would benefit our students more than a familiarity with the scientific method and critical thinking…regardless of what field they’re studying. “We Should Teach All Students, In Every Discipline, To Think Like Scientists.”
This will have an effect on our weather and climate patterns for some time to come. “The June ENSO forecast estimates a 50% chance of El Niño developing during the late summer or early autumn, and an approximately 65% chance of El Niño conditions in the winter, so forecasters have instituted an El Niño Watch.”
The latest NOAA State Of The Climate report is out and includes a look at significant global climate events for May 2018.
This is unprecedented warmth…and it’s only a small piece of a much larger warming puzzle that’s rapidly falling into place. “The U.S. Just Observed Its Warmest 3-, 4-, And 5-Year Spans On Record.”
Here’s a good listen about a very unique way of “listening” for tornadoes. If this works out, perhaps this will become part of the warning process of the future.
This is a “spot on” essay on why it’s not productive…or worth your time…to debate science that already has sound evidence to establish its facts.
This week, I’m continuing to pass on weather safety information. With the current heat wave across much of North America, summer heat safety is of utmost importance. It’ll get hotter into July and August…so keep this information handy.
WEATHER SAFETY: SUMMER HEAT
The Atlantic is quiet for now, but this is the perfect time to prepare for tropical cyclones. Waiting until everyone is in panic mode is the worst way possible to handle a potentially life threatening situation. It’s also important to keep in mind that most deaths from tropical cyclones comes from flooding…not wind.
WEATHER SAFETY: HURRICANES/TROPICAL CYCLONES
That’s a wrap for this post! I hope all of you are having a great summer…or winter…depending on which hemisphere you live in. A big “Thank You” to all my followers in all my social media outlets. I’m glad you’re all along for the fun.
