Greetings to everyone! I hope this weeks post finds all of you healthy and doing well. We’ll continue sharing severe weather preparedness information this week with a infographic on taking shelter during a tornado warning. There are many other interesting topics to cover this week, so let’s get started.
- This is a very cool astronomy read on the Hubble telescope taking a look at a star 28 billion light years away. That makes it the most distant star ever seen.
- There is a race to upcycle CO2 into concrete, fuels and much more…but will it help curb climate change?
- In the UK, 2021 saw a jump in greenhouse gas emissions that was the largest annual increase since 1990.
- Planting trees is a good idea, but it’s benefits are not as clear and are far more complicated than previously thought.
- California used to have a fire season, but with climate change in play, it’s turned into a fire year.
- A ice melting event that has ties to climate change. “Conger ice shelf has collapsed: what you need to know, according to experts.”
- This is the 40th anniversary of the April 2-3, 1982 USA tornado outbreak. Many things make this event interesting including the first time the wording “particularly dangerous situation” was used in a tornado watch.
- Here’s an excellent look from NOAA at eleven American regions and subregions that have released their latest spring 2022 climate outlooks and winter summaries.
SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY
This is an excellent infographic on knowing where to and where not to go in a tornado warning if in a substantial structure such as a house, apartment, office, school, store, etc.
The following infographic carries a clear message about where NOT to go in a tornado warning…and how you can avoid getting in trouble in the first place.
Please keep in mind that ONLY your local National Weather Service office, NOAA Weather Radio, or reliable broadcast media are the BEST sources of important, timely, and potentially life-saving, information on winter storm watches, warnings, and other related weather advisories! None of the links on this website should be used for life-&-death decisions or the protection of property!
