Because apparently we can't have a website anymore without a blog

The blah-blah-blog

Actually, I post a lot of information related to climate change almost daily elsewhere. But, as time permits, I'm going to put the esoterica I encounter related to climate change here rather than trying to update the various pages. So this will be reverse in chronological rather than logically organized within the structure of the rest of this website. Please don't rely on this as a consistent and current source for climate change information updates. Sadly, we cannot rely on our corporate-controlled mass media for good information on this. I update this site on my own time, and making a living has to take priority.

2020.02.26 - Alberta government took six months to release alarming climate report (Global News)

Because this is a 'government' that serves foreign oil and gas companies, not its citizens. Also note the fudging of the entry date in the government online records. One critic refers to the chain of mis-steps as a 'comedy of errors'. Whether there was calculated malicious intent or a mind-boggling collection of incompetence by mulitple members of the UCP government, neither is a good look if you're a resident of Alberta. The exodux of jobs and residents will continue.

2020.02.08 - In-Depth Renewable Energy 101 & Climate Change 101 — Thorough Beginner’s Guide (Clean Technica)

Like the blurb for this item says: "This section is meant as a primer to the world of climate change and renewable energy. CleanTechnica has posted over 40,000 articles since its inception in 2008. However, reading all of them would take months, so the following is a distillation of the key pieces of the puzzle."
Likely more than you want to take in at one sitting, but Clean Technica is generally pretty good on facts and being current, so those who haven't been following climate change and renewable energy intently for decades, this might be a reasonable starting point to get up to speed with little effort.
