What Is Global Warming?
- It's one of the hottest topics (no pun intended) in the weather and science world today.
Global Warming is what some scientists say is the result of an increase in carbon dioxide emissions from human technology.
Factories, power plants, and especially cars have carbon dioxide in their exhaust. As more and more people drive and as technology expands, we're increasing the amount of carbon dioxide we're releasing into the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide acts like a blanket in the atmosphere, trapping the sun's warmth in the atmosphere instead of letting it radiate back to space, increasing the Earth's temperature.
Some of the recent years have been some of the warmest recorded in history, but then again, weather records span but an instant in the Earth's geological time, so to some, it's too early to say for sure if Global Warming is indeed happening. But the debate continues.

When I saw this dramatic cloud to the north, it reminded me of smoke, rising in billows until it hits the jet stream, then it's pulled hundreds of miles east. I had to capture it quickly. Within minutes the effect had faded.
For my girlfriends birthday we had a party at her parents. We knew the nest was there but the owner hadn't seen or heard the osprey for a day or two. He asked me to fly my drone up and see if any was wrong. I flew up and found that there were two eggs inside.
The growing season has been great.
The secret to this garden is simple.
I used recycled grass clippings.
