Dodging the Roadkill: Maintenance

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve never been a “grease monkey.”  I’m not one of those guys who’s always working on cars or spending my days in the garage just “tinkering.”

I might need to take an interest.

When I began this journey, my research revealed that it was a fairly expensive venture.  Considering the thousands and thousands of dollars I had spent over the years on the golf course, owning a motorcycle didn’t compare.  I brought my bike to the dealership for all of the routine maintenance checks, and I’ve NEVER had an issue.

NASA reports new study reveals Arctic Carbon Cycle accelerating

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – When people think of the Arctic, snow, ice and polar bears come to mind. Trees? Not so much. At least not yet.

A new NASA-led study using data from the Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) shows that carbon in Alaska’s North Slope tundra ecosystems spends about 13 percent less time locked in frozen soil than it did 40 years ago. In other words, the carbon cycle there is speeding up — and is now at a pace more characteristic of a North American boreal forest than of the icy Arctic.
