This New Supersonic Jet Will Fly From London to NYC in 3.5 Hours—on 100% Biofuel

But the Boom Overture is not Concorde 2.0. It'll be faster, quieter and more fuel efficient, with a larger interior space.

This thing looks so cool!   I never flew on it and would never have had the means to fly on it, but for some reason I miss the Concorde.  Just knowing technology had advanced to the point of supersonic passenger air travel, and the fame and celebrity of the folks who flew trans-Atlantic on that thing, was really cool.

FEMA: Coastal Flood Risks

This homepage houses all resources and mapping information related to coastal flood risks and mapping for all stakeholder groups in coastal communities nationwide. Historically, cities, towns and villages are settled around ports along the nation's coastlines, providing individuals and families opportunities for trade, jobs and transportation, recreation and relaxation. These areas are extremely important to our nation, with great economic, historic and cultural significance.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans are less concerned now about how climate change might impact them personally — and about how their personal choices affect the climate — than they were three years ago, a new poll shows, even as a wide majority still believe climate change is happening.

The June Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, which was conducted before Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act on Friday, shows majorities of U.S. adults think the government and corporations have a significant responsibility to address climate change. The new law will invest nearly $375 billion in climate strategies over the next decade.

Overall, 35% of U.S. adults say they are “extremely” or “very” concerned about the impact of climate change on them personally, down from 44% in August 2019. Another third say they are somewhat concerned. Only about half say their actions have an effect on climate change, compared with two-thirds in 2019.


Black and Hispanic Americans, women and Democrats are especially likely to be strongly concerned about the impact of climate change on them personally and about how their personal choices affect the climate.

Many climate scientists told The Associated Press that the shifts are concerning but not surprising given that individuals are feeling overwhelmed by a range of issues, now including an economy plagued by inflation after more than two years of a pandemic. In addition to being outpaced by other issues, climate change or the environment are mentioned as priorities by fewer Americans now than just a few years ago, according to the poll.


Roughly two-thirds of Americans say the U.S. federal government, developed countries abroad and corporations and industries have a large responsibility to address climate change. Fewer — 45% — say that of individual people.

The poll of 1,053 adults was conducted June 23-27 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Do you see 25 350s in a day?

Cause the thing about rural living, is that it's... well... rural. ;)
Hell, I own 2 myself.  A F-550 for my water well business and my son drivers an older F350 SRW ( non-dually).  I also have an F-250 gasser.  And I just sold an F-350 for another water well truck a month ago.

I’d love to move somewhere with lower humidity. Houston didn’t make the top ten with 89%, but I live further towards the coast. I can’t imagine a climate with more heat and humidity than here. I’d easy trade 10 degrees of summer heat for 10 degrees of winter cold.

actually the coast runs 5 to 10 degrees cooler then places like Houston of course the humidity is higher

The Most and Least Humid Cities in the U.S. (2022) (housemethod.com)
Yeah, most of those are at least near the coast.  That's why Gainesville is so rough - 90 min from either coast, and 7th on that list.  "The Swamp" isn't just awesome, it's accurate.
