From last February’s light sprinkling - nothing to sniff, so toss me a stick, OK?

Penticton BC high today 22C, then forecast later this week -3C. Probably no need to pay for indoor skating - just find your closest parking lot.

There’s something strange in the neighborhood…..

Flooding returns and includes new areas.

Some people started their reno’s a little too soon. Some new floors are now old floors.

"Wicked" is my hyperbole since mother nature has neither morality nor sentience, but that's how it sometimes feels to the people at the receiving end.

Fact: earlier this year, scientists confirmed that the Amazon rainforest had switched from being a CO2 sink to a CO2 source.

That means that, instead of millions of living trees absorbing CO2 out of the air, helping to slow down our the rate at which our earth is overheating, now there are millions of dead trees decaying and spewing carbon dioxide. That carbon dioxide, in turn, actually speeds up the rate at which our atmosphere is heating. It's making an already bad thing worse.

The trees are dying due to the increasingly extended dry seasons. Which in turn is caused by humans cutting down so many trees that they no longer transpire ("breathe") enough water vapour into the air to bring the life-giving rains in time.

Until recently, the Amazon rainforest had been helping to slow down global warming. Now we've turned it from friend to foe. As the Amazon forest dies, it's now accelerating atmospheric and surface warming, helping drive all of us on planet earth towards a future too hot for most surface-dwelling animals to survive.

Here's a link to an article about this devastatingly bad bit of news: Amazon rainforest now emitting more CO2 than it absorbs | Amazon rainforest | The Guardian

For a change, the weather here was beautiful today. Clear skies, sunlight, crisp, cold, clear air. I gobbled my lunch quickly at work so I would have time to go for a walk around the block, and still be back at my desk by the end of lunch break.
