An unscheduled Geogramblings vlog and post in reaction to an incident taking place at a location that is very dear to me. The Bridger Foothills Fire ignited on 4th September 2020, and overnight it expanded rapidly from 400 to 7000 acres, consuming the eastern side of the southern end of the Bridger Mountains just outside of Bozeman, Montana. This is not only an opportunity to provide some geography education on the causes, conditions, impacts and responses, but also my way of helping a community I'm connected to (but can't be present in right now) - by helping to spread the word to anyone who may wish to contribute towards fundraisers that will help members of the community get back on their feet.

Climate scientists report that now 'a half' is more important than ever, not to be done by halves. Sustainable development, particular energy, has a large role to play. Featuring @WEMCouncil, @IPCC_CH, @ConnectSDGs, @TheEnergyMix #icem2019denmark
A 'mini' placement has me looking into a useful climate and energy visualisation tool. Calling for feedback on making it a potentially effective educational resource! Featuring: @WEMCouncil, @CopernicusECMWF
San Franciscans can easily challenge the British when it comes to talking about the weather. Why is it so 'damn cold' here in the summer!?
The @exploratorium's Observatory has that 'hidden treasure' feel about it, but each time you visit and open you eyes, the more wondrous it becomes.
There's a lot of hot air over this US cold snap... Let's get one fundamental thing straight!
“What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.” Mark Twain's quote perfectly sums up why we need to trust in the scientific process. After all, it gives us so much.
People say that in the UK, if you don't like the weather then just wait 5 minutes. Just wait until you've been to Colorado!
