Wild weather in Steamboat's forecast 9.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
It might be best to postpone that hike to the Mad Creek Barn or the Emerald Mountain quarry until the end of the work week. NO PLACE outside is safe when thunderstorms are in the area!! • If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you. • When you hear thunder, immediately move to safe shelter: a substantial building with electricity or plumbing or an enclosed, metal-topped vehicle with windows up. • Stay in safe shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last sound of thunder. • If you are caught outside with no safe shelter anywhere nearby the following actions may reduce your risk: • Immediately get off elevated areas such as hills, mountain ridges or peaks • Never lie flat on the ground • Never shelter under an isolated tree • Never use a cliff or rocky overhang for shelter • Immediately get out and away from ponds, lakes and other bodies of water • Stay away from objects that conduct electricity (barbed wire fences, power lines, windmills, etc.) -Source: National Weather ...

Basically, the Arctic Is Melting, the World Has Gone Crazy, and It's All Our Fault 28.3.2017 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by the Guardian and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The fingerprint of human-caused climate change has been found on heat waves, droughts and floods across the world, according to scientists. The discovery indicates that the impacts of global warming are already being felt by society and adds further urgency to the need to cut carbon emissions. A key factor is the fast-melting Arctic , which is now strongly linked to extreme weather across Europe, Asia, and North America. Rising greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have long been expected to lead to increasing extreme weather events, as they trap extra energy in the atmosphere. But linking global warming to particular events is difficult because the climate is naturally variable. The new work analyzed a type of extreme weather event known to be caused by changes in "planetary waves"—such as California's ongoing record drought, and recent heat waves in the US and Russia, as well as severe ...
