Baltimore tragedy prompts call for analysis of Vincent Thomas Bridge (msn.com) There's been a lot of coverage in the D.C. Metro area about the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore after it was hit by a container ship. The Francis Scott Key Bridge had been missing a key safety component - diverters. Other bridges in the U.S. that have that same safety flaw - lack of shields - are now being reevaluated.

This article helps to put climate science in perspective. Scientists know that the earth's climate has undergone rapid changes in the past. However, the speed of climate change (much faster in the past) along with the now densly-populated earth make changes from the present state concerning. 55 million years ago there was a drastic shift in climate that took 22,000 years to complete. But that was long before the existance of homo sapiens (300,000 years) and hominids (8 million years).

Nearly 100,000 people left without power in Portland metro area during wind storm | KATU(https://katu.com/news/local/nearly-20000-people-left-without-power-in-the-portland-metro-area-during-wind-storm#) The article in the link contains a list of emergency supplies that everyone should have on hand in the event of a winter power outage. I would suggest keeping an emergency kit like this in the trunk of your car if you're a driver, also. Even a light coating of snow/ice on a roadway can cause a car to slide off, and being stranded in freezing temperatures is risky, even in the modern age where cell phones make it easier to call for help. Road conditions can get worse in the time it takes emergency services to respond, so a kit could at the very least help you be more safe and comfortable while you wait for help.
