Weather in the News


Report tracks effects of climate change

Supporters of an ambitious bill to reduce risks of global warming say they don't have the votes to pass it in the US Senate today. The bill would require dramatic cuts in greenhouse gases, and nudge the nation's energy priorities away from fossil fuels. Even if it passes, President Bush says he'll veto it. Meanwhile, a new government report says climate change is already affecting crops, forests, water and wildlife. Lester Graham reports.  Go to full article

People-to-people aid to Myanmar

By the Myanmar junta's own count, at least 134,000 people are dead or missing after a cyclone three weeks ago. The U.N. says up to 2.5 million survivors are hungry and homeless and there are worries about disease outbreaks. The ruling generals have restricted visas for foreign aid workers and barred foreigners in the country from visiting affected areas. Still, there are non-governmental efforts, the Red Cross and Red Crescent, other NGOs...and those of individual people. North Creek residents Woody and Elise Widlund found one of the smallest and most personal aid pipelines. In five trips to Myanmar with Nevada Wier, a photographer who specializes in taking pictures of indigenous people living in traditional ways, they've visited villages that had not seen westerners in 20 to 30 years. They've made friends, including Phyo, who's now out on the Irrawaddy delta, delivering supplies bought in part by an e-mail network of people like the Widlunds in North Creek. Martha Foley spoke with Woody Widlund yesterday. He said the key link in the chain is Nevada Weir, who forwarded news from Phyo a couple days ago.

Warm, wet weather and deep snow raise flood warnings

With temperatures warming and deep snowpack in some areas, emergency officials in New York and Vermont are worrying about flooding. National Weather Service officials say in some places the snow is still so deep it's the equivalent of 15 inches of rain. Lake Champlain is of particular concern. Jonathan Brown reports.  Go to full article

A Swedish rite of spring

It's spring and there is no shortage of rituals and traditions surrounding the arrival of the season of renewal. Many early peoples celebrated for the basic reason that their food supplies would soon be restored. Longer days and more sunlight are a big deal here in the North Country, as well as parts of Canada, Alaska and northern Europe. Colton artist Irja Boden grew up in Sweden where longer days begin as a speck on the late-winter horizon.  Go to full article
