Greetings to everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well. For this week, our safety infographics cover summer heat safety. As usual, there are many topics to review, so let’s get started.
- In the late 1980’s, the late great Carl Sagan gave a lecture that is worth revisiting due to the fact that it was decades ahead of its time.
- This is definitely something to look forward to. NASA is giving us a subtle preview of what the new Webb telescope’s first images will look like.
- Now that the USA’s EPA has had it’s power removed to stave off the effects of climate change, time will tell what will happen now that it’s up to the individual American states to either courageously take action, or forego any responsibility and duty.
- Interesting read on progress that’s at risk. “Europe must not backslide on climate action despite war in Ukraine.”
- A very timely and accurate read on the state of our current lack of actions regarding climate change. “Beyond Magical Thinking: Time to Get Real on Climate Change.
- Here’s a very concise and essential read on how and why heat waves occur.
- The latest US Drought Monitor has been released. In spite of recent rainfall, dry and/or drought conditions are spreading back into much of the great plains.
SUMMER WEATHER SAFETY
Summer heat is one of the leading causes of weather related deaths and illnesses. Due to its slow yet potentially deadly ways in which is affects the human body, even the most physically fit individual who is well hydrated can succumb to heat exhaustion or heat stroke very quickly.
The Heat Index is a very important part of summer safety. Here’s an excellent page from the National Weather Service in Amarillo, Texas that explains how to calculate heat index and why it’s important.
That’s a wrap for this post! Thanks to everyone for stopping by. A big ‘Thank You’ to my followers in social media. If you’re on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or Facebook, let’s connect! As for the COVID-19 pandemic, stay safe, stay positive, and test negative!
See you next Saturday!
