ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS; BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL

Nov 28th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

If you follow the daily accounting of weather patterns, the picture shows that for most of the nation, temperatures of recent date have been above normal, while rainfall has been below normal. What this suggests, I am not meteorologist enough to know. It presents, however, a picture of lessening water supplies, days with more sun, and drought in those areas where drought has consequences that affect us all.

By now, for everyone except the non thinkers, there is ample scientific evidence that climate change is real. It is supported by more than just daily trends of temperature and moisture. It is complex enough that many simply turn their backs on any consideration of it at all. This, in itself, is a phenomenon that seems endemic to some and epidemic to others. There is something going on and while weather scientists struggle to explain the goings on, for most of us, trying to understand it, is a struggle of our own.
