Fair Warning

Posting may be a little light over most of August:  I’m having a little vacation (locally) because this every-day-getting-up-at-3.30am business is tiring me out, so I need to recharge the old batteries somewhat.  Also, this fucking heat has been getting on top of me, so a lot of the time will be spent in sub-zero air conditioning, putting the finishing touches to a couple of books I should have finished earlier in the year.

This year, winter can’t come too soon.

As always however, there will be a fresh post each day.  I may be on vacation, but that doesn’t mean I can shirk my responsibilities…


  1. Stephanie Osborn’s Long-Range Climate update.
    If you remember the big freezes of 1977-79 then you know it’s time watch Chinese and Indian CO2 emissions save us from another Ice Age while raising global food production cause plants inhale CO2 like we inhale O2. And the CO2 level at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution was as low as its ever been. The current increase alone from 180 to 360 directly raised crop yields 15% and contributed to a similar greening throughout the world’s wilder areas.

  2. “Way up north to Alaska, way up north to Alaska
    North to Alaska, go north, the rush is on”

    Why does a stocky Seffrican-American like you hang out in a furnace? In summer?

    I’m a stocky German-Canadian guy who has discovered that trips to the tropics, eg Texas, are too painful. I’m currently just north of the Montana border, it’s been about 90F and I can only stand it because there’s a glacier melt lake down the hill.

    Even if not Alaska, Montana is the place you ought to be, Glacier Park, way up a mountain next to a glacier melt lake. https://www.google.com/maps/@48.6048306,-113.7539342,3a,75y,147.28h,92.19t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipMeK820OM5TDyXmqxanSI4_qqhDzqDJRW4Gtnhg!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipMeK820OM5TDyXmqxanSI4_qqhDzqDJRW4Gtnhg%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya216-ro0-fo100!7i8704!8i4352

    1. If I remember correctly from the old blog, Kim had specific reasons for moving to Texas when he did.

      1. Yeah, sadly we needed a large international airport for all our business trips overseas, and Montana just didn’t / doesn’t cut it. Also, there are no Nordstrom’s stores in northern Montana.
