The latest news from Alaska
Hot off the press: Rick’s second newsletter from Alaska. Read all about his latest adventures with the #ARCSPIN expedition to the northernmost point of the United States. For the past month, Rick has been filming four atmospheric scientists from Colorado State University as they take water, air, and permafrost samples to test their hypothesis that microbes from thawing permafrost could be getting swept up into the air and be affecting cloud formation and weather patterns. It’s a totally new dimension to understanding climate change, and may help improve climate modeling over the coming years and decades.
On Sunday, September 19th at 10 a.m. Alaska time (11 a.m. Pacific, 2 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. CET), Rick will be hosting a Zoom call exclusively for his Patreon supporters. Sign up now and join the fun. Thanks!
