I'm Dave Thurlow for the Mount Washington Observatory in North Conway New Hampshire, and this is The Weather Notebook. For those of you who have been listening to this show regularly, to at least a few of the 750 or so segments we've had, you'll notice that the show title has the word weather. What if we changed the name of the show -- something we would of course never do -- to The Climate Notebook or to say something like, Climatewise.
Have you ever woke up one morning feeling a bit under the climate, or looked to the western sky and thought that it looked like some nasty climate moving in? Uh - have you? Well, what I'm feebly trying to demonstrate here is that there is a difference between weather and climate, two words whose different meanings are often obscured somewhat by a thin veil of clouds. So what we're doing here is asking you the listener to tell me, the guy on the radio, the difference between weather and climate, maybe even a definition of each.
If you do this, as part of the Weather Notebook Twister, by sending your thoughts to us at the address I'll have in a matter of seconds, we will gladly send you a Weather Notebook Poster, and make you aware of other nifty educational items as they become available. Weather and climate -- what's the difference? Our various addresses include The Weather Notebook Twister, PO Box 2310 North Conway New Hampshire 03860, and Email email@example.com.
Funding for The Weather Notebook is provided by The National Science Foundation, supporting research and education in science, technology and mathematics. Our show is underwritten on public radio by Subaru, maker of the all Weather Legacy. Subaru -- the beauty of All-Wheel Drive.
