Feeling the pull of climate change? I’ve been happy because we’ve had such a mild Autumn here in New England this year and because we are building a passive solar sunspace on the from of our cabin. Construction projects are so much more enjoyable and possible when you are not dealing with cold, snow and ice.
Yet the local NPR station ran a story about how there is a downside to all this mild fall weather…the ski areas have not been able to open “on time.” They mentioned that this was the warmest year on record, but did they mention climate change? No. And it is funny because this is the kind of thing that would get people upset and motivated.
This may be an interesting study, to look at when the media talk about the effects of climate change but don’t refer to it as such.
