Greetings to everyone! I hope this weeks post finds all of you healthy an having a good week. We’ll continue our look at winter weather safety this week . There are many other interesting stories to review, so let’s get started.
- Let’s start off with some good news. Near Tahiti, a new and rare area of ‘pristine’ coral reed has been discovered.
- There’s been a great deal of discussion as of late regarding what kind of mask to wear during the COVID pandemic. If possible, KN95 or N95 masks are the best options to choose over cloth. Personally speaking, I’ve worn KN95 masks and have found them very affordable, effective, and comfortable.
- The passing of the great scientist E.O. Wilson was the end of a priceless era in scientific research. Unfortunately, it also provided some elements a chance to take caustic ad hominem attacks.
- The Tonga volcanic eruption of 15 January 2022 was a very rare event that set off a tsunami and sent shockwaves through the earth’s atmosphere that circled the globe.
- After the Tonga volcano eruption, ripples were sent through the atmosphere that are puzzling atmospheric scientists.
- If 2021 seemed to be a very warm year during the summer months, you weren’t imagining things. Last year was one of the seven hottest years on record according to the World Meteorological Organization.
- The latest US Drought Monitor shows considerable drought conditions persist across much of the western and great plains states.
- Here’s the latest NOAA outlook on the current La Niña with all the details we need to know about the coming months.
