From all the data that I am reading and just by using common sense, I have finally accepted the harsh reality that we humans are indeed the root cause of rapid climate change..
Today I'm going to start to have an opinion..
No more hanging out in the gray areas and shrugging my shoulders..
I have no hidden agenda here...
This is a straight forward issue and I'm approaching it as such..
I'm just a single soul here on this planet and am saddened by man's neglect, neah, deliberate trashing of this world we all live in together..
So in the spirit of fairness, this blog is going to be updated and kept as current as I can..
Not all individual points on this subject can or will be posted here by me..
Just as many as I can manage is all..
Thats the best I can do..
So in closing, I would like for those read and post here to understand this is just a blog and please keep it civil..
I will respect you and others here will as well
Don't hesitate to post what you will..
I'm sure others will enjoy the reading of them as well as I..
Anyone who would like to share their views are welcome to..

Thanks for reading..

Governor Brown Joins Oregon, Washington, British Columbia Leaders to Combat Climate Change
Report dated 10-28-2013


Preamble and full article can be found HERE


SAN FRANCISCO Building on international agreements with China and Quebec to combat climate change, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today joined the Governors of Oregon and Washington and the British Columbia Premier by teleconference to sign a regional agreement to strategically align policies to reduce greenhouse gases and promote clean energy.

California isn't waiting for the rest of the world before it takes action on climate change, said Governor Brown. Today, California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia are all joining together to reduce greenhouse gases.

The pact seeks to enhance cooperation through a range of activities, including:

* Accounting for the costs of carbon pollution in each jurisdiction;
* Harmonizing 2050 targets for greenhouse gas reductions and developing mid-term targets needed to support long-term reduction goals;
* Taking steps to expand the use of zero-emission vehicles, aiming for 10 percent of new public and private fleet vehicle purchases by 2016;
* Enlisting support for research on ocean acidification and taking action to combat it;
* Adopting and maintaining low-carbon fuel standards in each jurisdiction; and
* Continuing deployment of high-speed rail across the region.

Earlier this month, the California Air Resources Board announced an agreement with Quebec outlining steps and procedures to fully harmonize and integrate their cap and trade programs. Signing the agreement is the latest step in a process to link the two jurisdictions that began more than five years ago. In April 2013 the Air Resources Board adopted a regulation setting January 1, 2014 as the start of the linkage, which will enable carbon allowances and offset credits to be exchanged between participants in the two jurisdictions programs. The linked programs will provide a working model for other states and provinces that are seeking cost-effective approaches to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

In September, Governor Brown joined China's top climate official, National Development and Reform Commission Vice Chairman Xie Zhenhua, to sign a first-of-its-kind agreement on climate change between the commission and a subnational entity. This followed landmark partnerships established earlier this year on the Governors Trade and Investment Mission to China, including agreements signed with China%u2019s Minister of Environmental Protection Zhou Shengxian to improve air quality and with Jiangsu province to promote renewable energy...

Dr. Myneni's petition to protect Earth from climate change
Professor Myneni of Boston University's Department of Earth & Environment, co-author of the greening Arctic study, has developed a simple one-sentence petition that he hopes one billion people will sign by Earth Day, 2014:

Dear Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon,

We, the People of the Earth, request You to act judiciously and expeditiously to protect the Earth from anthropogenic climate change.

Respectfully,
People of the Earth

Wishing you a very happy Saint Patrick's Day :-)

I have a PWS...it is nothing special, but it shows what the humidity, temperature, moon phases and pressure are doing. It has an outdoor sensor for the ambient temperature. This is the one I have, it is produced by the Science Museum here in the UK.

Hope you had a good birthday yesterday. Sorry I missed it, but it looks like you might have had a good day, for which I'm glad.

You share a birthday with a great organization. The National Wildlife Refuge System was 110 years old yesterday.

Obama has proposed a way to fund alternative energy research. Looks like a good idea to help wean us off of carbon-rich oil products. We can only hope our do-nothing congress will pick up the baton and run with it. For more info:

Happy birthday Marvin, may this next year be your best so far!


Thank you Randy for the b'day wishes..
This coming year may surprise me as I've a gut feeling that we may be in for it this year,hurricaine wise..
I really do feel that we have been waaay to lucky with the wind shear last few years..
As you know, Ivan was a low latitude Cape Verde storm that survived shear all along its way and landfalling within 41 miles of me here..
We shall see what this season brings..
It may surprise many..
Thanks again for the wishes my friend.. :)

ExoMars: European Space Agency and Russian Federal Space Agency sign agreement for mission to Mars..for more click HERE..







14 March 2013

ESA and the Russian federal space agency, Roscosmos, have signed a formal agreement to work in partnership on the ExoMars programme towards the launch of two missions in 2016 and 2018.

Establishing whether life ever existed on Mars is one of the outstanding scientific questions of our time and the highest scientific priority of the ExoMars programme.

The partners have agreed a balanced sharing of responsibilities for the different mission elements. ESA will provide the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and the Entry, Descent and Landing Demonstrator Module (EDM) in 2016, and the carrier and rover in 2018.

Roscosmos will be responsible for the 2018 descent module and surface platform, and will provide launchers for both missions. Both partners will supply scientific instruments and will cooperate closely in the scientific exploitation of the missions.

Good Morning BrairCraft..
Thanks for the great links and and comments..
I'm now wondering what do you plant in your part of the world?


I can grow just about any veggie, except no okra or sweet potatoes, as it just doesn't get hot enough here. I just started tomatoes, peppers, and basil seeds indoors. In a couple of weeks, they'll move to the greenhouse and I'll start a whole lot more seeds of veggies and flowers. Last spring frost is around May 10 and first fall frost usually happens by October 10, so about a 5-month growing season for things that can't survive a frost. When I plant cool season crops depends on when my garden plot dries out enough to rototil.

Thanks for dropping by my blog yesterday.

Hope you are well :)



Hi Brair,
So you go from sprouts to greenhouse and then to the garden..
I guess I'm lucky as I pretty much just plant my seeds in a planter outside and they grow well..
All except the potatoes as I use starters for them..
I don't think we will plant much this year though as I've got other things to tend to that will take up my time this year..
We'll see..
I see your getting some rain yesterday and today..
I know you said your planting season runs from May 10 to October 10..
I hope your garden is successful this year..
Thanks for stopping by..
Will TTYL..
Peace :)


Hey sandiquiz,
I'm doing fine..
It's my birthday today..woohoo..
Got a water purifier, some clothing and going out for dinner tonight..
Next year I'll get myself a PWS..
If I can find a sale on a good model..
Gotta do my research and find out which ones are good..
Thank you for dropping in and have a special day.. :)

I hope your meeting went well Yesterday :)
You know the saying what doesn't break ya makes you stronger I am a firm believer of that ... and good luck to your daughter :) She will have a blast at college!

Yes you folk in the western part of the Panhandle are storm tough . I actually looked up the 2004-2005 seasons a couple of days ago . It seemed as though nearly every landfalling storm those 2 years either threatened or hit that area . I guess that is why the folk there take whatever comes in relatively good humour and is a reason I have so much respect for people of that area . I know this stuff is off topic but I rather talk about weather .....



Hey VR46L,
Well the meeting went fine..
Will have another Wednesday afternoon..
Step at a time..
Oh, you post whatever you like,
I have a blog topic but even I wander..Lol
2004-2005 were the worst seasons since I've lived here..
And yes, the folks that have lived here for awhile
Know how to prepare for the TC season.
Unfortunately there is alot of military people and college people who come and go and they aren't used to storms..
So there is some hysteria and confusion when the hurricaines do come..
I myself, am responsible for my mother here as she is and has been ill for years now..
So I am at the ready..
We are 38ft above sea level here and about 4 miles
away from the GOM..
Not bad really..
Well, gonna post this now.
Please feel free to post here and on whatever topic
you choose..
GB.. :)

Yes Isaac was good for me here as it kept the drought index down for my area..
But folks west of me didn't fair as well..
As far as Sandy is concerned..
I think she will be the new standard in as far as being large and destructful..
The Eastern Seaboard had better start building up defenses and infrastructure..
Time is of essence..
Where I live along the GOM there are fail safes..
Certain utilities have break-away structures and backup pumps,steel poles, and alternate travel routes specifically for after the storm repairs..
Hopefully the Eastern Seaboard has and will do the same..
Without a doubt there will be another Sandy..
Ok.. gonna post this as I have a meeting to go to for financial aid for my youngest daughter to enter college..
She's such a sweet and mature young lady..
She's had it tough all of her school years..
I will do whatever it takes to help her succeed..
Until next time.. :)

Thats what I am thinking too ... last year kind of threw everyones numbers out the window. And yes I think there will be less but worried about how strong ! Sandy was the only one that really was awful last year ! Yes Isaac was not great but Sandy oh boy ! I hope I am wrong !


Yes Isaac was good for me here as it kept the drought index down for my area..
But folks west of me didn't fair as well..
As far as Sandy is concerned..
I think she will be the new standard in as far as being large and destructful..
The Eastern Seaboard had better start building up defenses and infrastructure..
Time is of essence..
Where I live along the GOM there are fail safes..
Certain utilities have break-away structures and backup pumps,steel poles, and alternate travel routes specifically for after the storm repairs..
Hopefully the Eastern Seaboard has and will do the same..
Without a doubt there will be another Sandy..
Ok.. gonna post this as I have a meeting to go to for financial aid for my youngest daughter to enter college..
She's such a sweet and mature young lady..
She's had it tough all of her school years..
I will do whatever it takes to help her succeed..
Until next time.. :)

Hello VR46L,
And Hey back to ya !!
I saw the same as you did in looking at the upcoming TC season..
The lower Lats being more active than last year will
Kept the number of TC down a notch but
With that said, I'm thinking of stronger, not more storms..
Climate is in flux and events of rain/ severe/ and TC will be more intense this year.
Of course it's only my opinion..
I was way off on my numbers last year..
Am thinking I'll be closer this year as I did my Homework..not just guessing this time.. :)
Remember your welcome here and I will look forward to your input as we go along..
TTYL..
Your friend, Marvin.. :)

Hiya Pcola,

Just thought I would drop by , and say hey!

I am actually starting to get pessimistic about this coming season ! I looked at the Atlantic temp Map and not liking where is warm and cool at the moment . Its looking like a lot less 30%uFFFDN formation which is what bumped up last years numbers with alot of harmless storms that killed of the Western Europe drought ..

But instead just on the temps that are in the Ocean at the moment I see alot of the storms forming Quite far south . the neutral ENSO is a concern as more severe hurricnes seem to form in a neutral year !

We will see 16/7/4 thats mine withe a June start !


Hey Mary,
Yesterday was great,weather was in the high 60's with a passing cloud deck..
Wind was 5-10mph and dry..
How did the girls night out go?
Hope all was enjoyable and safe..
Spring is in the air here now..
Gotta give the yard guy a call this week..
I just can't do it anymore with my back..
It gives me fits..Meds help alot..
I'm pretty much limited to pool duty nowadays..
That's enough work anyway..
Hope your day is special and
I'll talk to you next time.. :)
