New York Sizzles in the Wrong Way
I’ve been trying to put in miles on my bike this summer–at least 50 miles per week, and more if I don’t have gigs in the offiing. But this weekend, not so much. The temperatures anticipated for NYC (and most of the eastern part of the US) are in the wet bulb range. I’ve tried […]
Did I speak too soon on Extinction?
Well, this is confounding.

The Arctic Methane Emergency Group has a scientist named Sam Carana. Or […]
New chart on Methane and climate

The numbers along the left side are estimates of methane in the atmosphere. The (mostly) pink triangle predicts when certain milestones […]

One of the confounding realities of global warming theory has been that nobody with the requisite knowledge of the science really wants to put a date on when an ‘Extinction’ event will occur. As I noted in an earlier post, there is even a great reluctance about using the E word–even when all the evidence points […]
