La Nina Sunday

1a

After the demise of El Niño, the climate phenomenon that has helped fuel record-setting heat for the past two years, all eyes have stayed on the Pacific waiting for its counterpart, La Niña.

Without the cooling influence of a La Niña event, the planet is likely to continue feeling the heat for the rest of the year. July and August tied for the hottest month ever recorded and 2016 is essentially guaranteed to be the hottest year on record.

So now after a few months of waiting for the arrival of La Niña, where do we stand? Well, that depends on who you ask.

    Most of the heat goes into the oceans. It’s too hot.

    In today’s TNYT I learned that there is a Wildlife Services, not to be confused with the Fish and Wildlife Services. The former specializes in killing birds and mammals.

      East to the end of Grimes Way, across Terre View Drive to the arboretum, on and off trails there for 40 minutes or so, thence back to the Hillside Cafe; a total of 118 minutes this lovely afternoon. Sure builds an appetite. Saw a tidings of magpies, a Swainson’s hawk fighting for altitude, and a flock of robins.
