0ÂºF this morning. Santa Fe could afford to pass on a few degrees of coldness to this place, which seems to be warming up rapidly.
these cups were designed in 1969, especially for blind people, to help them tactically distinguish one from another.
LINK to main page. I can imagine a little game between friends… fill with liquids, some tasty, some awful, blindfold guests who have to remember the shape of cup…
Oh, and check out what Exxon has to say:
Heavens to Betsy! Is Exxon lightening up on climate denial? | Gristmill: The environmental news blog | Grist
Exxon says important questions remain about the degree to which fossil-fuel emissions are contributing to global warming. But “the modeling has gotten better” analyzing the probabilities of how rising greenhouse-gas emissions will affect global temperatures, Mr. Cohen said. Exxon continues to stress the modeling is imperfect; it is “helpful to an analysis, but it’s not a predictor,” he said. But he added, “we know enough now – or, society knows enough now – that the risk is serious and action should be taken.”
Whoa, that’s amazing: …the risk is serious and action should be taken. And with those words the sun is breaking through the clouds and lighting up the Santa Fe landscape.
