High of 77 today in Phoenix.  By Saturday, it'll be 102.  I think this is the last week of Spring for us.

Yeah, sounds like you're just behind our weather (which makes perfect sense). With some extra blast furnace built in, of course, as usual.

Just got through a cool weekend with highs in the mid-ish 60s. Rained this morning and a high of 62 on the forecast for today. Supposed to be 86 Thursday, and 88 Friday. Hopefully it "cools off" to 80 as forecasted on Saturday, because I've got a 10 AM tee time and that means it'll last likely until 2-3 PM and be in the hottest part of the day.

So, the goal is set to reduce CO2 emissions by half by 2030, nine years out.

Is there any practicable way to actually achieve that?

I can't find one.

We had back to back days of rain, with snow in the mountains.

I often wonder what a year of Ohio weather would do to this place. It would be like 1,000 of erosions all at once. Many areas would be washed away entirely.

Bison vs Cow Greenhouse Gas “Emissions” – Mr. Dr. Science Teacher (wordpress.com)

If bison produce less methane per pound than cattle, one approach seems fairly simple.  Bison burgers taste fine to me.

The steaks are a bit lean, but OK.

I'm still trying to concoct some means of cutting this in half in nine years.  Transportation is a biggee, around 28%.  Let's focus on that.  So, the approach has to be more EVs on the road.  We can't do much soon for heavy trucks and planes.

Some 276 million vehicles were registered here in 2019. The figures include passenger cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, and other vehicles. The number of light trucks sold in the U.S. stood at 12 million units in 2019.

Can we change the fleet from the current 1.4 million plugin EVs (including hybrids) to a number like 190 million in nine years?  The clear answer is NOPE, not a chance.  At the current rate, it would take 15 years to do that.

Automakers are now shifting to electric vehicles, which could make up one-quarter of new sales by 2035, analysts project. But at that point, only 13 percent of vehicles on the road would be electric. Why? Older cars can stick around for a decade or two.

Even in 2050, when electric vehicles are projected to make up 60 percent of new sales, the majority of vehicles on the road would still run on gasoline. Slow fleet turnover is a major challenge for climate policy.

Residential is small

probably why folks aren't being shamed for using natural gas for cooking and heating
