As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, but if clicking on forum on homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Extreme weather:

    " Thanks to improved modeling, increased computer power, and better skill in interpreting data, attribution science – a young branch of climate science – has been blossoming, says Jeff Rosenfeld, editor-in-chief of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS).
    "It’s a calculation of how the risks have changed in the new climate."

    Jeff Rosenfeld
    Rosenfeld spoke at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in Washington, DC, in December 2018, on the release of Explaining Extreme Events of 2017 From A Climate Perspective, the seventh in an annual series published by BAMS.

    Based on the research of 120 scientists in 10 countries, the report comprises 18 peer-reviewed chapters; each deals with a particular weather phenomenon during 2017.

    “The studies look at what the climate is now, then they run tests to compare it to what the world might have been had we not been releasing greenhouse gases at this rate,” Rosenfeld said at AGU. “It’s a calculation of how the risks have changed in the new climate.”

    Martin Hoerling of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), editor of the report, said that over the seven years of the Explaining Extreme Events series, 70% of events studied had had some “appreciable climate change footprint”. This trend was predicted in the first IPCC report in 1990, he noted."

    "The exact sciences also start from the assumption that in the end it will always be possible to understand nature, even in every new field of experience, but that we make no a priori assumptions about the meaning of the word "understand"."
