"Time to play good news/bad news on the Gulf spill once again. Good news: retired Coast Guard Admiral Thad W. Allen told reporters today that he was all but ready to authorize BP's static kill procedure, which would involve pumping mud in through the containment cap, and that it could begin within 48 hours. If it works, the procedure could bring an earlier end to a blown well that has spilled up to 190 million gallons of oil into the Gulf."
"However, there's trouble brewing on the horizon—literally. A storm is forming in the Caribbean, and the system is likely to move into the Gulf of Mexico over the weekend, with a 50% chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm by Friday." 07-10

"Well, some of it is dynamics that are going on in the very high atmosphere, in the stratosphere. There's often waves that... go through the atmosphere from low to high and from high to low and that can help cause some of these wobbles."
"There's also... areas of high pressure called blocking highs that... act like stop signs in the atmosphere, preventing storms from... going through them. And we had a series of blocking highs over the past week or so over the North Pacific especially. They... rerouted the traffic in the atmosphere."
"But... what we're... guaranteed is that we're going to continue to have cold outbreaks throughout the winter, but long-term climate change means that a lot of the cold outbreaks that we experience may not be quite as cold as they used to be. We're seeing less frequent extremely cold temperatures in many cold places.”
"Minneapolis has had much fewer days below about minus-10 degrees Fahrenheit, fewer nighttime lows that low, in the past decade vs. the 1970s, for example. So the long-term trend is up, but we have got these natural variations in weather patterns that we try to keep close track of." 01-14
