Greetings to everyone. I hope everyone is having a pleasant and productive week. The COP26 climate talks have come to and end. We’ll take a look at a few stories on that important event. The tropical Atlantic is still quiet and will likely remain so for the coming weeks. This week’s post will be the last post with a plethora of links to help you with hurricane preparations. The Atlantic hurricane season officially lasts until November 30, 2021. As usual, there’s many good reads to review, so let’s get started.
- There are many complex scientific questions that surround human existence. Here’s a look at some questions with no easy answers.
- Regardless of the field or topic, science communication is a fine art. Unfortunately, much of the general public and mainstream media often misinterpret or misinform consumers on scientific data. “On Covid, we need to be careful when we talk about numbers.”
- You know that things are getting bad when this happens…and for all the wrong reasons. “An Astronomer Cancels His Own Research—Because the Results Weren’t Popular.“
- When you look at the general trends from the past, this reaction was inevitable. “Climate change deniers are over attacking the science. Now they attack the solutions.“
- In order for climate change solutions to be properly implemented, the communication gap between climate science and social science must be vanquished.
- Now that COP26 is over, you can catch up on many of the events, speeches, and interviews on their YouTube channel.
- At this point, it’s not too early to beginning making plans and agendas for next year’s climate talks. “Climate leaders call for pressure on stubborn nations before Cop27.“
HURRICANE SAFETY AND PREPAREDNESS
The official start of the Atlantic hurricane season began June 1, 2021. As is the case with most years, the late summer and autumn months comes the peak of activity. This is a list of tropical cyclone safety and preparedness links that I hope you’ll find helpful and spearhead your preparedness plan. None of the links on this page should be used for life-&-death decisions or the protection of property!
HURRICANE SAFETY & EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION
The following infographics cover many important topics including emergency kits, staying informed, and avoiding misinformation and disinformation that are applicable to tropical cyclone scenarios. Tornadoes are also common in land-falling tropical storms and hurricanes. If in doubt, always stay with OFFICIAL sources of important information, forecasts, and warnings.
Even though this infographic is focused on winter weather, it certainly applies to weather information year round. Diligence from January through December is important to cull through misinformation, disinformation, and unfounded rumors.
Please keep in mind that ONLY NOAA weather radio, your local National Weather Service office, or reliable broadcast media are the BEST sources of important, timely, and potentially life-saving information on hurricane/tropical storm watches, warnings, and other related warnings! None of the links on this page should be used for life-&-death decisions or the protection of property!
That’s a wrap for this post! Next week we’ll have some winter weather safety information along with many good science reads to review. A big ‘Thank You’ to my followers in social media. If you’re on Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram, let’s connect! As for the COVID-19 pandemic, get vaccinated, sport a quality mask, practice good hand-washing hygiene, mind your social distancing, stay positive, and test negative!
See you next Saturday!
