Hey looks like nice weather for the Fair!

If you would like to come say hi, there is a good chance I’ll be at the Climate Change booth (as part of my duties with the Climate Change Committee).

I’ll be there tonight between about 8 and 10 probably.

See you there!

Oh, and two weather/climate related things to keep an eye on. Hurricane Ike is a monster roaring towards the Caribbean, hopefully he weakens before he gets there. Hurricane Hannah should cause some trouble for New York City and Atlantic Canada in the next few days. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov And the Arctic ice sheet is edging closer to a 2nd all-time low. http://www.nsidc.com
