Snowing here last night and today.  We’ve got 3.5 inches already.  More on the way. deniersThat decaying snow, the dripping from the gutters, all gone now.  The landscape has again taken on that soft, rolling look that only snow can give it.

After reading a paper called, The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change: How Do We Know We’re Not Wrong? by historian of science, Naomi Oreskes, I’m grateful for the snow and the cold.  Even more grateful than in the past.  We’re so lucky to have a northern climate that still delivers its distinctiveness in spite of a warming world.  This luck will not hold.consensus

If  you’re curious about the various kerfuffles around climate change, this is a very clear refutation and explanation of the climate change deniers wrapped in a carefully argued depiction of the current state of climate science.  A good read.

Meanwhile, I’m enjoying the snow, embracing the privilege of living here.
