Abnormally Drenched

In the UK the Met Office predicted a drought last year shortly followed by the ‘wettest drought on record’. Good to see our American cousins are following suit 😉

Real Science

The Washington DC based US Drought Monitor has finally upgraded Fort Collins from “Severe Drought” to”Abnormally Dry

Conditions here are the wettest I have ever seen. The snow and rain has been almost continuous for the past two months, and everything is mud. No chance of a lunchtime ride today, as we are getting slammed with pouring rain and hail.

Most of us have by now heard about the US shale gas revolution. In little more than six years, shale gas has reduced America’s gas prices to a third of what they are in Europe, increased huge tax revenues, rebalanced the economy, created tens of thousands of jobs, brought industry and manufacturing back to the country’s heartlands, and given rise to a real prospect of American energy self-sufficiency by 2030.

Britain may well have comparable shale resources. Indeed, the Bowman shale in Lancashire is a mile thick, whereas most US shale plays are just 300 to 500 feet thick — a strangely unpublicised…
