Good morning, not from the pink and orange coffeehouse, but from a cubicle in a small-town public library. With the end of the year rapidly approaching Ted and I thought we’d take a look back at 2012 and talk about some of the lasting impressions we had from Two Thousand and Twelve, Anno Domini.
Here’s more information about some of the things we talked about in this edition of the Climate Minute:
Check our our blogs on Falmouth wind and the Plymouth wind moratorium attempt. For a look at the propsed wind siting reform legislation, go here. And if you’re interested at seeing what the opposition, WindWise, has to say, check out their site here.
For a good overview of the wind power production tax credit, check out DSIRE’s page here.
Ted had a great time at the Government Center Vigil, and spoke with some of the folks there.
Here’s our blog on the Arctic melt maximum this fall. To read more about the opening of the Northwest passage go here. The level of the Mississippi River is discussed here, hopefully the recent blizzard in the midwest will make a difference.
Finally, as we wrap up the year with the slightest glimmer of a chance for a white Christmas, Think Progress is writing that 2012 will almost certainly be the hottest year on record.
We’ve enjoyed our conversations with you in 2012, and look forward to coming at you from the pink and orange coffeehouse, or places yet to be discovered, in the new year.
And, as always — remember, for these reasons we have discussed, the United States must place a price on carbon. Have a great weekend, and we look forward to talking with you again next week!
