NATO must combat climate change

Op-ed article by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg

27 Sep. 2020


I have been passionate about climate change all of my life. My first job in government was as Deputy Environment Minister, and I had the privilege of serving as UN Special Envoy on Climate Change. Now, as NATO Secretary General, it is my responsibility to address the threat climate change poses to our shared security.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. As the planet heats up, our weather becomes wilder, warmer, windier and…

Oregon’s Wildfires

Iowa Climate Science Education

By Paul Homewood




 I have already taken a close look at the wildfires in California, but what about Oregon, which has also been badly hit?


But first though, let’s look at the national YTD stats from the  National Interagency Fire Center:


Nationally, this year so far is a long way from being a record, and ranks only sixth since 2010. While the west may be badly hit this year, other areas are faring much better.


Back to Oregon, and a look at the weather data there this summer. The fires have been concentrated along the Willamette Valley, which runs north to Portland:



This is Division 2 in Oregon:





Rainfall there this summer has not been unusually low, and recent summers have been no drier than the majority of years prior to the 1970s.

Jupiter’s ocean moons raise tides on each other

The effects of relative proximity between these large moons seem to have been underrated. Not forgetting that Jupiter does have a big effect on Io, the closest Galilean moon to it.
– – –
Jupiter’s “ocean world” moons may have strong gravitational effects on each other, raising big tides in each others’ subsurface seas, a new study suggests [ reporting].

Surprisingly, these moon-moon tidal forces might generate more heat in the satellites’ oceans than the gravitational tugs of giant Jupiter, study team members found.

“That’s kind of interesting, because Jupiter is the biggest mass in that system, so its tidal forces are much bigger than one moon on another,” lead author Hamish Hay, who performed the work while at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, said in a statement.

Peace Eludes My Mind

Peace, the most cherished of human desires, eludes me. Humans go to any lengths to find solace. Day in and day out, I find myself in the labyrinth of thoughts from which there seems to be no escape. I am very poor at solving puzzles and always avoid and try to find the easy ways…

Just Use A Mouthwash, Stupid! New British Study Suggests “Oral Rinsing” Effective Against COVID-19 Spread

Iowa Climate Science Education

Expect this new study to be greeted by an angry mob with pitch forks and torches. Results Big Pharma, Bill Gates and social engineering technocrats don’t want to see. 

So picture this: tens of thousands of scientists, doctors and health authorities worldwide spending billions and billions in a frenzied search for new medicines and vaccines – and imposing economy-crippling lock downs – all to combat the COVID 19 virus. Meanwhile, a large part of the solution is likely just sitting right there on the supermarket shelf – to be had for just a few bucks!

Use a mouthwash, stupid!

That may be just the case, believe it or not, according a a recently published study appearing in the British journal FUNCTION titled: “Potential Role of Oral Rinses Targeting the Viral Lipid Envelope in SARS-CoV-2 Infection“.

It may be that simply gargling regularly in fact goes a long way…
