Written February 6th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Climate change doubts? Burn ’em!

Written May 22nd, 2016 by Hasso Hering

Although no one mentioned this, it seems to me that the Portland schools now face a problem: What to do with books and other material doubting that mankind’s use of fossil fuels is mainly responsible for climate change. I suggest a solution in the spirit of the Portland School Board’s decision last week to ban […]


Oops, caught by sea level rise

Written January 6th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

So here I am on the Oregon coast, once again keeping an eye on the sea level in case it is rising because of climate change. and I barely escape having the sea soaking my socks. So yeah, it must be rising faster than I thought.

Left out of the climate summit

Written November 29th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

They didn’t invite me to the big climate-change summit in Paris, which is just as well because I’m stuck here with an iced-over windshield. I could run the engine long enough to get warm and let the defroster take care of this, but then I’d be adding a load of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere […]


What? Yes, our cooling climate!

Written November 30th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

The lower road at Albany’s Bowman Park was under water Saturday because the Willamette River rose quickly over the last couple of days.

Written February 5th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

The federal government is doing something else to save us from climate change. The Washington Examiner’s headline: “Obama Administration Creates ‘Climate Hubs’ to Combat Extreme Weather.” Well, too bad they’re not in time to combat and perhaps repel what’s forecast for the Willamette Valley starting Thursday: another bout of snow and maybe ice.


How about a tax on heating?

Written December 7th, 2013 by Hasso Hering

  Let’s remember the scenes from this winter when state and federal officials start talking again about imposing a “carbon tax” or increasing the energy taxes we already have.


Ice versus hot air

Written October 29th, 2013 by Hasso Hering

The bird bath in our yard froze over this morning, pretty much right on schedule. Meanwhile, in the world of politics, the hot air continues to billow forth about global warming and the steps we must take to slow it down. In the local paper, the AP reports on the governors of Oregon, California and […]
