Long Term Consequences

It was 16 degrees Sunday morning and just above freezing this morning.  The forecast calls for temperatures in the 60s over the next couple of days and then for the possibility of snow showers later in the week.

A local NPR station has a relatively new show entitled 1A, and one of today’s broadcasts dealt with climate change-a topic that Mr. Joshua Johnson, the host, has addressed before.  The panelists reported on the fluctuation of weather systems coupled with the longer term consequences of climate change.

There were two major areas of discussion involving the warming temperatures: the shift in weather patterns and the de-synchronization between plant and animal species.  (The book Why Time Flies covered in an earlier blog includes this as well.)  One of the panelists presented a theory that addressed the former and both discussed examples to illustrate the latter.  The biological and economic consequences of these developments are quite notable.

Take care.
