Cyclone Gaflio, South Indian Ocean, March 2004.

Well, my first hurricane-related presentation, at the Exploratorium here in San Francisco, can now be watched here…Here for Real Player, here for Windows Media Player….I think it came off pretty well. Lotsa slides, hurricane pictures, and even a movie….enjoy. I think it’s a good start for my speaking on this subject.

Meanwhile, literature on Storm World is being distributed at the American Geophysical Union meeting at the Elsevier exhibit table, booths 720-724. Check it out….more info here.

    WASHINGTON – The Bush administration is clamping down on scientists at the
    U.S. Geological Survey, the latest agency subjected to controls on research that might go against official policy.

    New rules require screening of all facts and interpretations by agency scientists who study everything from caribou mating to global warming. The rules apply to all scientific papers and other public documents, even minor reports or prepared talks, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.’

    you just gotta monitor what usgs scientists say about caribou mating. they might use language that could be offensive to bush’s sensibilities.

    Watched it all the way through – You show, once again, that you are among a small and uniquely qualified number of journalists who have genuinely taken the time to significantly educate themselves on their subject matter. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire webcast from start to finish, and have recommended it to friends and acquaintances.

    Once again, bravo!

    Dark Tent, recall that the caribou were the poster child for the campaign to stop oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    Excellent job, Chris, with the “difference between weather and climate” statement. I think it does the trick. It explains things very succinctly without getting sidetracked too far into a discussion about probability, etc., which I think makes it too abstract. Great stuff!
