I started this blog for two reasons. The first was to organize my own thinking on the subject of weather and climate. The second was to create a space in which other people who care about such things might comment about what they observe where they live. It had started to bother me that seemingly the only weather stories making it into the mainstream media had to do with unusual warmth. When the TV networks and major newspapers did cover a cold-weather story they would frequently mouth the global warming dogma that the cold was the product of climate change, and not a sign that the ocean-atmosphere system was doing what it always did (which is move warm and cold around the globe like paint on a Spyrograph).
This evening, I’m in New York City, which has had an unusually cool summer so far. Today it was 72 degrees with a light wind and unusual visibility for the time of year. Back home in Austin, meanwhile, they are sweltering.
If you are coming to the site after seeing me on Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld — welcome. Glad to have you on the site! Take a look around, comment if you like, and come back anytime.
