Greetings everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well. The tropical Atlantic is certainly much busier than last week and the potential for a landfalling tropical cyclone is certainly a possibility. Consequently, I’ll continue to share helpful infographics on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in any tropical storm or hurricane scenario. As usual, there are many other essential and important reads to review on climate, weather, and other science related topics, so let’s get started.
- The launch of the Artemis vehicle may have had another delay due to fueling issues, but weather can also sideline a launch. Why is weather so important to a rocket launch?
- Here’s some very good news on the renewables front. “US to see renewable energy boom in wake of historic climate bill.”
- Public policy is now key to badly needed adaptations if we are to get a handle on the climate crisis. “To adapt to climate impacts, come to grips with politics.” Good weather has held back USA climate action for decades.
- “COP27 will be deadlocked if climate adaptation funding promise is broken.” A disastrous stalemate is likely unless low and middle income countries can trust promises made by richer nations.
- “Why drought looks different depending on your region.” The USA’s Northeast’s ‘flash drought’ is a reminder that dryness isn’t just a problem for western states.
- Hand in hand with drought is the scourge of heat waves. Heat is by far the deadliest weather hazard for the USA & many other countries. Often underrated, heat’s not called the ‘silent killer’ for nothing. Unfortunately, this weather and climate threat doesn’t garner the superfluous attention and hyperbole seen elsewhere in social media.
- For the latest on the Atlantic hurricane season, check out NOAA’s National Hurricane Center’s website. Here’s a look at the outlook for the next few days.
- Here’s a very comprehensive website from NOAA and the National Weather Service on hurricane preparedness, watches and warnings that will be important to you, and what to do after a hurricane or tropical storm.
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!
