Very nice piece on MSNBC’s The Reid Report. Spread this around. Nice job, Michael Mann and Bill Nye.

Nice coverage of climate change that is NOT A “DEBATE” ASSUMING SOME KIND OF DUMB FALSE BALANCE. Way to go, MSNBC. Thank you. Summer weather in Sochi, a record-drought in California and a polar vortex. The evidence for climate change is all around us. Bill Nye and Jeffrey Sachs talk about the climate debate and…

The following is also found HERE on the White House web site. I provide it here without comment because it speaks for itself. But if you want more, check out “Global warming action: good or bad for the poor?” by John Abraham, and “Keeping The Carbon In The Ground Elsewhere: Developing Nations” by me. Drought…

If water had its way, this is what California would look like: Think about it for a second. Every single moment, currents of air move, slowly or rapidly, across every land surface on the planet. Anything loose gets blown slowly or rapidly, to lower places. Every now and then, in some places rarely and in…

The famous Polar Vortex has come and gone in North America. Then, it came back. What a jerk. As I write this the outside temperature is 13 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, and tomorrow morning’s Bus Stop Temperature promises to be about –25F windchill here in central Minnesota. Meanwhile my Twitter stream is polluted with climate…

I first interviewed Dr. Alun Hubbard on the edge of the Watson River in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland last summer. His vivid language and lucid storytelling made that video on of the most popular in the Yale Series. (see below) Both Dr. Hubbard, and my Dark Snow Project cohort, Sara Penrhyn Jones, live in the tiny village…

More on the “Drunk Arctic”

Mother Jone’s Climate Desk has an excellent and important interview with Jennifer Francis and Kevin Trenberth. I can’t really comment on it now due to lack of time but I think it is time for me to update my AA->QR->WW linkage post based on this discussion. I’ll also bring this into my next talk on…

I have some information on an interesting event coming up in Union, Missouri, in case you happen to be in the neighborhood: “Climate Disruption in Missouri: Consequences and Solutions” Date/Time: April 17, 2014 from 7pm to 9pm Location: East Central College, Union, MO Format: 60 to 75 minutes of presentations and 45 to 60 minutes…

Paul Douglas on Climate Change

Last night I attended a talk by meteorologist Paul Douglas, at the Eden Prairie High School. The talk was “Weird Weather: Minnesota’s New Normal? Our Changing Climate and What We Can Do About It,” and it was sponsored by Environment Minnesota, Cool Planet, and the Citizens Climate Lobby. I didn’t count the number of people…
