In these parts, it’s mid-September and the temperature is still in the mid-80s. This is not normal.

This is weird:

Businesses in Ocean View reported that people in fluorescent vests told them to shut down and leave because they are in an evacuation zone, Crouch said. She didn’t know which neighborhood the NextDoor report came from.

Crouch said that these people are not Norfolk employees and that the city would never force people to leave evacuation zones. “That’s absolutely a personal decision.”

The city is trying to identify these folks.

Will Bunch covers the fire this time and why it’s not getting the media play it warrants. A snippet:

In a critical midterm election year, with a wave of new and allegedly fired-up candidates, how many of them have made climate change a front-burner issue? Very few that I’m aware of.

Why is this, and what is to be done?

In the Why Dept., climate change is ultimately a science story — which is bad news on several fronts. Bill Nye aside, America is pretty much a nation of Not Science Guys and Gals — with study after study showing that the U.S. lags the rest of the developed world when it comes to science education. Lack of education typically leads to lack of interest, but I don’t think that’s the only reason viewers reach for the remote. We’ve also seen a steady devolution as reality-show production values trump (pun intended) any kind of real-information culture in the news media.

And it’s not just here.

Afterthought:

I fear we are well past the tipping point.

Look at the weather widget, over there —-> on the sidebar.

This is not right.

I fully expect that, within a century or two . . .. oh, never mind. Nobody cares.

I went for a bicycle ride today.

In shorts and a tee shirt (yesterday, it was a sweat shirt).

In February.

Wednesday was in the 40s, and it’s back to the 40s tomorrow.

The prosecution rests.

It’s over 70 degrees today–in February (you know, the coldest month of the year) in a mid-Atlantic state.

A week ago, it was in the 20s and 30s.

This is not right.
