Is that global warming has thrown a monkey wrench into everything we used to know. There are a lot of things that are now risky that didn’t used to be, or were rare, or confined to one part of the world — but not anymore. Oh, and our medicine isn’t going to be able to […]

But damn, tornadoes are becoming a lot more frequent around here than they used to be. I was getting acupuncture treatment for a severe tension headache, which normally involves kicking back in a lounge chair for an hour while schlocky New Age “music” plays in the background. Instead, I had mixed emotions: High winds, rain […]

The attack on Christians is coming from the right, not the left. In an interview yesterday on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., railed against Pope Francis and other Christian leaders who have addressed the human influence on climate change. Inhofe told FRC President Tony Perkins that the pope’s recent […]

It was quite a storm last night: commuter trains still not up, more than a half-million homes without power, hundreds of downed trees and damaged houses, a collapsed house in Fishtown, and at least eight reported funnel clouds in the area.

Cool water

I certainly get the appeal of having a backyard pool (although, to be honest, I preferred a swim club when my kids were little), but they’re really, really expensive. (Which is why they’re a “status symbol.” What fun.) But I don’t see residential pools lasting into the future. We’re already seeing drought, extreme heat and […]

Seems like a lot of those “freak storms” going around lately: CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A freak thunderstorm dumped up to 6 inches of rain and inundated a tiny Wyoming town, collapsing a bridge, damaging homes and businesses, and sending about a dozen people to higher ground. Another brief thunderstorm dumped more rain on the […]

Record heat hits Alaska

Alaska, usually frozen until June, has recently been experiencing something of a heatwave. Long-held temperature records have been broken and the winter roads that are made entirely of ice, are melting earlier than usual. On Saturday, Alaska, the 49th state of the US, was warmer than Arizona. To get this into some perspective, the Arctic […]
