Greetings everyone! If you live in North America, I hope you’ve handled the recent cold snap well. Many states, including Florida, saw the first snowfall they’ve had in many years. “Bomb Cyclone” was the weather term that was making the rounds in social media. Meanwhile, Australians are sizzling in a brutal heat wave. Truth be known, North America has been the only area on the entire planet that has really been cold as of late. Plenty more to go over, so let’s get started.
For your consideration, here are this week’s links…
Hopefully, your night skies will be clear on 31 January 2018 for Earth’s moon to do something it hasn’t done for 150 years.
Now that Christmas is over, how do you keep that tree from going to a landfill? There are plenty of green options that are beneficial to our environment.
As winter continues, it’s a good idea to re-familiarize yourself with winter weather terminology and the basics of winter weather forecasting.
A very nice overview of the early January “Bomb Cyclone” that affected much of eastern North America.
Speaking of the “Bomb Cyclone,” what does the term mean and why all the attention given to this event?
It’s not cold everywhere. Australians are dealing with a brutal heat wave with temperatures over 115F.
The latest Drought Monitor is out for the start of the new year. As of 2 January 2018, over 147 million people across the USA are experiencing abnormal dryness or drought conditions.
This is an article that can’t be shared enough. It’s an excellent response written by Dr. Marshall Shepherd regarding people using the winter cold as an excuse to refute climate change.
Scientific facts are hard to accept for some people. “A British government-backed research project that coordinates data from tide gauges around the world has hit back at climate science deniers who wrongly accused their scientists of faking findings.”
Evidence is mounting as scientists continue research that can link climate change to specific extreme weather events.
Even without the short-term warming influence of an El Niño event, 2017 was the hottest year globally on record according to NASA data.
That’s a wrap for this post! I’d like to welcome my new followers in social media. It’s nice to have you along for the fun.
