Greetings everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you well. For the eastern Pacific and Atlantic, the hurricane season is wrapping up. Simultaneously, there have been some substantial early winter weather events across parts of North America. Therefore, I’ll start posting winter weather safety information this week with helpful tips on preparing an emergency kit that will be useful in any winter storm or severe weather scenario. There are many essential science reads this week including important information on the COP27 summit, but first, a quick note regarding the ongoing situation with Twitter. I will have a separate post regarding that matter with information on how you can keep in touch with Tornado Quest and our other social media platforms.
- A very good read on the irrevocable link between climate & biodiversity. “COP27 climate talks seen as key to success at next month’s United Nation’s nature summit.”
- Speaking of the COP27 summit, it was revealed that recent global carbon emissions have hit a new high.
- Greenland is losing ice at a rate that is the equivalent to what occurred at the end of the last Ice Age.
- Across the United States during the last decade, nine out of ten counties have experienced weather and/or climate disasters.
- This is the latest update on the USA Drought Monitor. Dry or drought conditions continue to persist across much of the contiguous USA with several midwestern and southern states now affected.
- Across the Northern Hemisphere, winter is setting in. If you’re looking for winter weather preparedness and safety 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 also help you prepare an emergency kit and advise discretion when encountering questionable weather information/forecasts/hyperbole while visiting websites and using social media.
WINTER WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
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!
