Wild Gyrations in Winter Temperatures. Why? // Published on Jan 14, 2018
Winter temperatures seem to gyrate from extreme cold to extreme warmth, and back again, in an endless repeating cycle. When this gyration passes through the freezing point there is frost, snow, melt, rain cycling repeatedly, wreaking havoc on roads, rail lines, bridges, buildings, water pipes, animals and plants. Infrastructure and wildlife suffer greatly, and there are huge temperature contrasts greatly increasing the frequency, severity, and duration of extreme weather events. Why?
Dissection of a Disaster: California Debris Flows // Published on Jan 11, 2018
I discuss how a sequence of many cascading events (worsened by climate change) resulted in horrendous debris flows (different from flash floods, mudslides, and landslides).
Heavy spring rains in 2017 stimulated rapid vegetation growth (grasses, bushes, trees); baking summer drought killed off much of this vegetation, and intense wildfires consuming this bone-dry plant material continued into December charring the hills.
Heavy rains in early 2018 on the burn scars ran down hills causing debris flows (water, mud, rocks, boulders) devastating towns and blocking major highways.
