Listen: Pather Ston, San Francisco And Al Gore discussed on Ryan Scott
"Saying second and locked in all that smoke down to the surface. So we didn't get any wind coming in or any shifting of the weather pattern that would move that smoke outta here. So that's why it lingered for so long. And then finally we got a couple of little rain storms coming down from the north west that broke into that high pressure system chewed into it kicked up a little bit of wind. Brought us some rain and after about two days of that air is fresh and clean. But we different here. Your high pressure system that you talk about I've had a lot of amazing meteorologist on the show you being the king the Elvis of them all on the show with me. We're going to sing we always do a what is it about the bay? What is it the hub of San Francisco because when you start the do, you know, this we always talk about this? But the fans loved to figure out why is the bay the way it is. Well, we should say why was it the way it was because right now, we really can't count on our seasonal patterns even closely resembling what they did for so many years you're after year we could count on a rainy season that would start approximately mid November and go until about March, and we could count on a relatively cool summer here in the city at least. Chilly. Chilly summering say, and we could count on a little mini heatwaves developing in like September and October. But so you mean to tell me it's getting harder to be meteorologist here everywhere. Because climate change is affecting patterns everywhere. You hear that president? Yes. This show this show pather Ston. I know Pat can say what I would like to say. Yes, that's why we all listen to her because we're just like go ahead. Put someone in charge of the of the EPA who doesn't want to protect the environment. You. Posing a question. I was just being a journalist. So it is changing. Yes. As a matter of fact, what's happening right now is precisely what climate scientists were predicting forty fifty years ago back in the late sixties and early seventies climate scientists were talking about this thing called a global warming, the greenhouse effect and very few people paid attention because they were talking about what the weather patterns would be like or what life would be like, you know, in four decades or five decades and most people don't want to think that far ahead about how their lives may be affected. Then we got into the eighty s and ninety s and the US defense department and NASA scientists were trying to get people to focus on this. The government to to take some action to limit the emission of carbon gases into the atmosphere because because scientists in those two agencies could see what was coming. And now here we are. We're just in the last decade we as a country have begun to talk seriously about how to slow down. The warming of our planet, and it may be too late. I mean, it sound like a fatalist, but it may be too late. You feel it too. And me having my daughter's one this month, and you have a couple of grand, Greg, grandchildren. And it's funny when you look at the universe in your own eyes. And you're always like. Remember, Al Gore in the nineties, recycle. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. That's so dumb. No. You're feeling me. Right. Absolutely. Absolutely. And you know, what we can expect to see? And again, I'm not saying this being alarmist. I just want people to think about it because the planet is getting warmer,."
