New Thread Specialy for #Canadians
We have all seen the strange phenomena. We never understand it. Piglets and puppies always go to the same nipple when they nurse from their mother. Cows file in order when its time to go back in for milking.
We have seen videos of this strange thing and its cool but no one ever understands it. Birth order of you and your siblings. I always wondered how each egg ripens in the ovary and why that one does. Its because they formed in an order and come out in the same order.
Yes so what?
This is real, electrical phenomena. All countries have counties. Why do we have counties? Is it easier to divide everything up so much? No its because each country has a town seat. The main center of power.

Let's talk about "national emergencies."
There are THOUSANDS of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in this country. Sisters, daughters, mothers, human beings that disappear without a trace. Where is the declaration over that crisis? #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIR
In a country determined to place nationalism at the forefront of domestic and foreign policy, we have a shocking number of homeless veterans. In states like Arizona, the number of #veteran suicides is 90.4 per 100,000.…

With the #polarvortex last week and the potential for significant Pac NW snow, I thought it'd be interesting to look at the "benchmark" arctic outbreak on record. Behold, the Great Arctic Outbreak of Feb 4-14, 1899. /1
The majority of what follows is taken from Kocin, Weiss, Wager (1988). Highly recommend the read along with the Weather Bureau Monthly Weather Summary /2……
The period began "benignly" enough with temperatures reaching 33 in Los Angeles, 12 in Seattle, and -9 in Boise on Feb 3-4. Cold, for sure, but nothing that still holds a record today. Then the first of three relatively "normal" snowstorms began in the East. /3

Thread time (mildly technical) for some broader context in relation to #PolarVortex

Because it’s popular, let’s dig in, and also is this thing related to global warming? Let’s start with the basics. We’ll get to polar vortex toward the end.
It turns out when you take a “fluid,” like an atmosphere, or a big water tank in a lab, and subject it to temperature gradients (e.g., driven by differential solar heating) and then make the fluid rotate, interesting things happen.
Digression (a): In reality, when you take (under)graduate atmospheric science classes, you bond not over how you will become rich promoting global warming, but rather hours spent writing down equations that describe those interesting things.

As cities across the country try to save lives and shelter the homeless this weekend during the #PolarVortex, can we please talk about how homelessness is a policy failure?
There has been EXTENSIVE research about the best way to fight homelessness.

The research TELLS US how to solve it!

It's an approach called "Housing First."…
You don't wait for someone to get sober before you get them a place to stay.

You don't wait for them to get a job.

You house them FIRST.

No preconditions, no barriers to entry.

This is what the RESEARCH tells us.…

"In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the Coldest Ever Recorded. In coming days, expected to get Even Colder. People can’t last Outside Even for Minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Warming?" @realDonaldTrump

From the Everyone-Needs-A-Project department, I spent time this afternoon trying out methods for keeping my dogs from getting frostbite.
An internet search suggested human hats with flaps, but all the local stores were stocking swim suits, so that was a non-starter.#PolarVortex
I then tried face masks, balaclava style. The dogs were very patient about it, but it was a fail.
Then, on the sale rack I found women’s hoodies for $8. This seemed promising, but not quite ready for primetime.

Yep, that's all that's ever present here too. I call 'em Masonic Milky White Skies. Of course after dark the skies clear completely to let any heat that was escape into the atmosphere. #WeaponizedWeather #WeatherWarfare #Chemtrails #HAARP
@NULOOKREFINISH Weather manipulation "is perhaps the single greatest threat facing humanity. I think if we fail to act collectively against this nefarious agenda, we will all be living in a toxic world were life will cease to be sustainable.

Usually at this time of year a sub-freezing tornado-like vortex forms over the North Pole, making the #Arctic super-cold. But in Dec. the #PolarVortex fractured, and part of it is heading southeast -- towards Great Lakes, Boston, NY.
2] There are 2 implications of this: 1.) North Pole could warm, worsening #climate impact on ice melt.
2.) W/in 10 days a wave of bitter cold & storms could overwhelm eastern US & Canada.
If #TrumpShutdown still in place then, many winter storm agencies will be shut down...
3] ...or have employees working w/out pay, including:
FEMA, Air Traffic Controllers, TSA, National Weather Service, US Coast Guard, parts of HHS, etc.
The #TrumpShutdown is literally a matter of national safety & security.…

NZ was one of the only populated places on the planet yesterday where there were temperatures under 15 degrees celsius.
Another perspective on the global heatwave that NZ appears to be missing out on (which may well turn out to be a good thing)…
