Hard to believe, but with the House adjourned until next week, the shutdown will almost certainly extend into a second month. Here’s a recap thread as Union Steward of NHC of what we have lost so far, and what else is on the chopping block:
The National #AMS2019 conference has come and gone. All the potential scientific gains, interactions, new ideas- not this year. I probably regret losing the interactions with the hundreds of student attendees the most- a real missed chance for future inspiration and talent.
The first week of the @FEMA #hurricane preparedness classes is cancelled. The next one is likely to be postponed as well. This class is for decision makers who usually don’t know a lot of meteorology to help them understand what NHC/NWS products can and can’t do for them..

Since the shutdown is nearing a second week, I thought I’d share a thread as Union Steward on how it is affecting me and the @NWS - the agency I work for. While life-saving services continue, the shutdown most certainly still has negative consequences:
The National AMS conference starts next weekend. Thousands of people will gather for it, but unless the shutdown ends- very unlikely anyone from NOAA is going (no travel permitted except for emergencies). So much lost time and money that can’t be recovered.
In mid-January, NHC starts to host #hurricane preparedness training weeks for emergency managers and decision makers from across the southern & eastern US. The shutdown means those classes will be cancelled if it reaches that date- not good for US hurricane readiness.

#DallasThread #Thread #Hurricane #HurricaneFlorence #Flood #Cleanup As the flood waters recede, I want to talk to you about cleaning up. I have received training in disaster relief and sadly have had to use this training.
While this thread is not in-depth, it will be most useful info in one place that I think you will find. It’s also a bit long. Sorry not sorry 😬
Let’s start out by stating the obvious, unless you are saving another human, nothing is worth risking personal sickness or your life for. You must protect yourself first in disaster areas. If it takes another day to get the right gear, wait that day.

FAKE NEWS

This is so brilliant I just had to show it to you.

People making audition tapes for fake news.
I hope this becomes a trend. I would love to see more videos like this for the next two months. Please around your family and friends together and make one of these. The more ridiculous to the better!

Short thread on importance of even the smallest elections:
BEGIN
1) My small coastal town has 3 seats up for city council next month. #vote
2) Of those running for city council, 5 believe in climate change, 4 don't. All but 2 candidates GOP. 3/5 climate believers here GOP. #vote
3) Last city council election, only 20% registered Dems voted, because they saw majority of candidates were GOP and they dismissed them.

One thing I’m worried about—in addition to my family’s safety—re: #Maria in #PuertoRico is how #colonialism capitalizes on #NaturalDisaster
In the early 1900s US #businesses were able to monopolize #PuertoRican farm land after Hurricane San Ciriaco (1899) devastated the #island
#Farmers who were never able to rebuild after the #hurricane were forced to either give up their #land or enter unjust agreements
