Greetings everyone! I hope this post finds all of you safe and well. The tropical Atlantic is still active even after Hurricane Ian which left a tremendous amount of damage and over 100 fatalities in it’s wake. This week, I’ll continue sharing helpful information on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in any tropical storm or hurricane scenario as well as an infographic cautioning you to the hazards and dangers of using unofficial sources for weather information. 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.
- This week, we’ll start on a visually spectacular note with these amazing looks at Jupiter’s moon Europa that were captured by the Juno spacecraft.
- This is a harrowing listen about environmental and public health irresponsibility that dates back to the early 1980’s. “Contempt: How Reagan’s EPA Head Became The First Cabinet-level Official Cited For Contempt Of Congress.“
- Changes in past climates on our planet can quite often give us valuable insight as to what we can expect in the future with climate change.
- Global weather patterns are strongly affected by this. “La Niña winters could keep on coming.” This will be the third winter in a row that the Pacific Ocean has been in a La Niña cycle.
- Over a billion people depend on this water. “As Himalayan Glaciers Melt, a Water Crisis Looms in South Asia.“
- A new and potentially catastrophic new normal for parts of the USA. “Megadrought could become the new normal in the south-western USA.“
- Before we take a look at the latest US Drought Monitor, let’s take a look at how the ongoing drought is affecting California, only one of many states being ravaged by the current dry conditions.
- Here’s a look at this weeks US Drought Monitor. With few exceptions, drought conditions continue to worsen across much of the contiguous USA. Hopefully the autumnal patterns will bring some badly needed relief but at the current time, there’s little substantial rainfall in recent outlooks.
- Last but certainly not least, if you’re looking for hurricane preparedness information, here’s your one stop website for everything you need to know for before, and after the storm. This all inclusive website from NOAA will help you prepare for the storm and tell you how to stay safe afterwards. The infographics below will help you prepare an emergency kit and use discretion when you come across questionable weather information/forecasts/hyperbole when online or using social media.
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, a follow is appreciated! And remember, prepare ahead now for the storm you hope never happens!
See you next Saturday!
