Safety Saturday


This stuff is used in your cars’ AC system and sold widely across the World.

HFCs, a type of short-lived climate pollutant, linger in the atmosphere for an average of 14 years, which is significantly less time than CO2, but long enough to become mixed throughout the atmosphere. That means that reductions in HFCs in one area can affect the climate globally, including in the Arctic where climate change is wreaking havoc on natural systems.

An Obama-era rule would have restricted the manufacturing of products containing HFCs, and had the potential to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by as much as the equivalent of 72 million metric tons of carbon dioxide by 2025, according to an analysis by scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

But a federal appeals court sided with foreign manufacturers of HFCs, ruling that the EPA did not have authority to regulate them under the Clean Air Act. This came despite support for the Obama regulations from the Trump administration and two large U.S.-based chemical manufacturers—DuPont spinoff Chemours and Honeywell International, which make alternatives to HFCs.

    Same weather today. Sunny and cold.

    Tomorrow, Nick’s birthday party. Monday, wedding dress shopping w/ Jill. Pete will be over some day next week, not sure when.

    I putzed around the house today, got lots of piddly things done. Got a meal ready for myself, poured a glass of wine to go with it, then remembered there was a movie waiting for me at the library. Before I would drink the wine, I drove to town to get it. THEN I saw in the LR and ate and drank the wine while watching Monday’s American Idol episode. I love that show!

    For Jim, I got an old movie via MelCat because our Ingham County library didn’t have it. MelCat is made up of most of the library systems in Michigan. “Time After Time.” A version of H.G Wells The Time Machine. I loved that movie when it came out in 1979.

    Up to Bryan Hall for the opera workshop production of Sondheim’s “Into the Woods” took 15 minutes. After a wonderful 2:10 back to the Hillside Cafe in another 4 minutes.

    The Orchestra played, or rather just a few; Harrison Storm, bassoon, Kirill Polyanskiy, concert master, Elizabeth Swanson, 2nd cello, faculty Michael Seregow, pianist, Ryder Matanane, 2nd viola, are the players that I recognized; oh ys, Jackson Bores on the double bass.

    Celena starred as the Baker’s Wife, Clare of the great voice was Cinderella; talked to both their mothers during the intermission. But the big surprise was Keadrin Dick as Little Red Riding Hood, a part requiring not only a powerful voice but considerable acting ability; a winning performance and I told her so after it was over.

    Except for installing a folding door in the master bath I did’nt do much else. Car developed an issue on the way to dinner, too late to diagnose tonight, looming for tomorrow or Monday depending if I put it off. I have a manual for reference at any rate and will no doubt require a solder rework somewhere since GM never figured out wave soldering in the 90’s. All their PCB’s have cold solder joints that break easily over time, I already fixed my keyless entry and door lock relay PCB. I hope it doesn’t require money, might have to open a go-fund-me account. 😦
