Damn, hadn’t seen this image of that late March storm yet. Says the guy from Capital Weather Gang: “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a storm this big before.”

Whoa: 

Here’s a view of Mount Washington that most never see. Taken by a friend of mine 20 miles off the coast of Bailey Island, Maine. So that would make it like 90 miles away as the crow flies.

Put the argument into a concrete shape, into an image, some hard phrase, round and solid as a ball, which they can see and handle and carry home with them, and the cause is half won. - Ralph Waldo Emerson, laying down what’s probably the biggest failure in contemporary climate/energy/environmental communications.

The Northern Lights, taken by my friend and shipmate Shiro Takatani from the deck of the Noorderlicht, using some kind of fancy lens and tripod contraptions, somewhere on the coast of Greenland. [More shots from the voyage by clicking on the photo. ]

Five years since Whitman and Brown, sitting around the dinner table in the transient room-for-let hub we affectionately called the Treehouse, convinced me to start one of these Tumblogs. Five years. I think I was much better at it back then. Might just start reposting things from five years ago. Get back to the roots and all that. Five years. Good grief.

I doubt we’ll hear much about it here, because people might think what Iceland did is a better solution than whatever turd sandwich we get in a “grand bargain”. (Likewise, we’ve heard only a little about how austerity isn’t working too well in the EU, and of that, only recently.)

Because y’all don’t watch BBC World News.

And maybe because Iceland has about half as many citizens as Vermont. No knock on Iceland. It’s just small and they can do things like these.

Bloomberg Businessweek’s post-Hurricane Sandy cover story “may generate controversy, but only among the stupid,” editor Josh Tyrangiel tweeted Thursday morning.
Coincidentally, the Climate Desk is hosting its second Climate Desk Live event, featuring Kevin Knobloch—the president of the Union of Concerned Scientists and an expert on climate—and Mike Castle, the former governor of Delaware and a nine-term Republican congressman from the state. You can watch them talk about the question of the day—In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, to what extent can science, and climate science in particular, shape US policy?—right here.

Those crazy hippies at Businessweek dare connect the dots between the greenhouse effect and extreme weather.
