Greetings everyone! I hope all of you are doing well. The tropical Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico is still active for this years hurricane season. 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. There are many important reads to review on climate, weather, renewables, and other science related topics, so let’s get started.
- Let’s start with some good news. “Science’s no-fee public-access policy will take effect in 2023.”
- This is a case where patience is a virtue. “Bit of Panic: Astronomers Forced to Rethink Early.”
- Mixed plastics, items that contain a variety of plastic types, have been a challenge in recycling. Here’s a hopeful look at what can be done in the future with mixed plastic items.
- This is interesting, but nothing to celebrate when viewed from a futuristic drought perspective. “Lake Mead water crisis is exposing volcanic rock from eruptions 12 million years ago.”
- This new UN report looks at the increase in dangerous and deadly impacts of heat waves and how it will affect humanity in the near future. (Report in 20.33 MB PDF file.)
- Another new report, this from the World Meteorological Organization, examines the importance of moving faster to a transition of clean energy sources.
- 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 for the coming weeks.
- 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 for the storm you hope never happens!
See you next Saturday!
