From Near and Far

I guess I picked a good week to go on a business trip. A very quiet weather pattern will dominate. Fairly typical September stuff. Low humidity will lead to cool mornings and warm afternoons. In the middle, a ton of sun.
So for today, all I want to do is direct your attention to the Chesapeake Bay. Last Saturday, NOAA deployed a Smart Buoy at the mouth of the Susquehanna river, where it meets the Chesapeake Bay. It is the fifth in a series to track the nutrient levels in the Bay.
I could elaborate more, but I am in a hurry this morning, so click here for the full story.

On a side note, USA Today continues to tap into recent events to support it's agenda. Recently they posted a story about research showing proof that Global Warming is leading to stronger hurricanes. The problem with the research is that it is just a small comparison- back to 1981. Why not go back farther to the last height of the 30 year cycle? Say the 1950s? At least they quoted a reasonable source- Christopher Landsea who helped Dr. William Gray develop his long range forecasting for tropical storms, and currently works at the National Hurricane Center.
