It’s getting very late here as I type this short post, but I wanted to just comment on the crazy weather we’ve been having here in Montreal. It is currently 5 degrees Celsius and tomorrow it is supposed to go up to 7, which is absolutely balmy for January in Montreal, where the temperature is usually around -15 degrees C. As I went out today at lunchtime at work I couldn’t help but feel like it was Spring, a cruel and unusual trick by mother nature to make me think that I’m anywhere near riding my Motorcycle, which is really something like 3 months away. However, it does give me a renewed feeling that the Winter will go away and that Spring will come again, until then, I look out and shake my head at the crazy weather outside.
In my first post from a few days ago I mentioned buying a new vehicle back in October, a 2009 Hyundai Tucson, now although I really like the truck, I do however feel pangs of guilt as I drive a less than ecological vehicle around, especially since I’ve been touting and honking my environmental horn for so many years. The last week or so, I’ve been seriously giving thought to buying a second-hand Chevrolet Volt, the electric-drive vehicle from GM, which has a range extender motor. I’ll have more information on this in an upcoming article, stay tuned.
Those of you who know me well, know of my fondness for the environment and for mother nature. The following short 2 min video describes the research currently being undertaken by NASA to understand the ice movements in Antarctica in an attempt to view the effects of global warming. I especially like the tag line at the end.
