Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 1

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I pulled out of the Iron Horse Inn at 5:30 on Friday morning.  I had already apologized to my neighbors the night before about firing up “black beauty” that early the next morning.  It was a cool, crisp morning and there was a “calm” in the air as I pulled out, on my way to Colorado Springs, Colorado.

It was there that I would rendezvous with friends I had met through this blog.  After spending a couple of days there, I would then head over to Ouray, Colorado, where I would stay with friends for a couple of days.

Make no mistake about it, I LOVE COLORADO!

NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite data reveals reasons for Earth’s Carbon Dioxide Rise

 

Written by Dwayne Brown
NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – A new NASA study provides space-based evidence that Earth’s tropical regions were the cause of the largest annual increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration seen in at least 2,000 years.

Scientists suspected the 2015-16 El Nino — one of the largest on record — was responsible, but exactly how has been a subject of ongoing research. Analyzing the first 28 months of data from NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite, researchers conclude impacts of El Nino-related heat and drought occurring in tropical regions of South America, Africa and Indonesia were responsible for the record spike in global carbon dioxide.

The last El Nino in 2015-16 impacted the amount of carbon dioxide that Earth's tropical regions released into the atmosphere, leading to Earth's recent record spike in atmospheric carbon dioxide. The effects of the El Nino were different in each region. (NASA-JPL/Caltech)
