Just "Weather":

It may be 3 days from the 2600.png summer solstice, but it's 2744.png snowing in Idaho's high country.


June snowstorm drops nearly 2 feet of snow across northern Rockies...


The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office in Idaho said on Facebook that it was issuing a “felony warrant for Mother Nature for Illegal Dumping.”

“If you see [Mother Nature], please show her a calendar. She thinks it's Junuary…” the sheriff’s department wrote.

GLOBAL WARMING...since 200,000 years ago!


Fossils show 1st intrepid humans left Africa 200,000 years ago for an icy Israel Discovery of fossils of cold-climate rodents alongside remains of region’s 1st modern humans shows they arrived from hot cradle of Africa during Ice Age, but were able to adapt.


The temperature would have been circa 5 degrees Celsius (41 Fahrenheit), which would allow for cohabitation of other warmer climate species that were found in the cave assemblage with the cold climate voles.


“People who evolved in Africa — in a completely different environment — took this step, which you don’t see any other species in world history with the ability to do — to step out of their original cradle into a different environment and be able to survive,” Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologist Lior Weisbrod, the co-author of the study, told The Times of Israel on Monday. “That’s what eventually allowed humans to reach every corner of the world.”


The study is based on further analysis of artifacts discovered in Weinstein-Evron’s 2002 excavation of the prehistoric Misliya Cave, where a 170,000-200,000 year old jawbone was discovered that explosively reset the clock on human migration when published in 2018

Latest Global Warming Record Breaking News: "Cool spring breaks tornado record"


Cool spring breaks tornado record with the lowest number of tornado watches issued during the month of June in recorded history, beating last year's total of eight, which was the previous record and, until this year, the only year that number did not reach double digits. Prior to last year, the low was 10 watches issued during June 1988, according to the NWS.


The record-low trend in June followed an abnormally calm May, as well.


"May was a chilly time in the East with no chance for the warm air to bring these strong storms."


On average, tornadoes cause 80 U.S. fatalities annually. Last year, tornadoes were blamed for killing a total of 41 people.

"Fake Climate Science" vs "Real Science"
Can true climate science even exist in a world dominated by philosophical, political, religious and personal bias?

While reading a book review of A Cold Welcome, an historical account of the Little Ice Age and its devastating impact on the early American colonists, I was saddened to find the article typically tainted by the author's Philosophical Bias as revealed in her final summation:

"But while the Europeans who traveled to North America in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were not responsible for the Little Ice Age,

today the responsibility for the global climate lies largely with humanity."


Without empirical proof, her conclusion is simply based on her personal bias.


Philosophical bias is the one bias that science cannot avoid
Scientists seek to eliminate all forms of bias from their research. However, all scientists also make assumptions of a non-empirical nature about topics such as causality, determinism and reductionism when conducting research. Here, we argue that since these 'philosophical biases' cannot be avoided, they need to be debated critically by scientists and philosophers of science.
Basic philosophical assumptions count as biases because they skew the development of hypotheses, the design of experiments, the evaluation of evidence, and the interpretation of results in specific directions. In our own research, we look at biases related to ontological, epistemological and normative assumptions about causality, probability and complexity. To give an example related to causality: when choosing a scientific method to establish a causal relationship between some medical condition and a virus, one must first have an idea of what causality is. This is a part of science that cannot be discovered empirically, but remains tacitly assumed in scientific methodology and practice.

The New York Review of Books,
 Susan Dunn

"In his deeply researched and exciting new book, A Cold Welcome, the historian Sam White focuses on the true stories of the English, Spanish, and French colonial expeditions in North America. He tells strange and surprising tales of drought, famine, bitterly cold winters, desperation, and death, while anchoring his research in the methods and results of the science of climate change and historical climatology."


Galileo also had to fight the Flat Earth bias of his day.

Supposedly, even today, to million, the Earth is still flat!
