NOAA Issues Seasonal Outlook Update - Slowly Adjusting to La Nina Conditions

Written by Sig Silber

NOAA has issued their Seasonal Outlook Update which covers the period from September of this year to September/October/November of 2018. Surprisingly, their forecast is not much changed from what they issued last month on July 20. Last month when we looked at that update and compared it to the JAMSTEC Update they were very different. Unfortunately, JAMSTEC has not yet updated their website so we can not see if JAMSTEC is now in closer agreement with NOAA as we anticipate will be the case. To avoid delay in sharing the NOAA Update with our readers, we are issuing our analysis per our regular schedule. We will reissue it when we have the ability to compare it to the JAMSTEC Update. Note of interest: the level of uncertainly for this coming winter is quite high.

Video of the Day:

Being an executioner has to be one of the strangest jobs in history. Who would volunteer? As you’ll discover, the most prolific executioners known to us are a diverse group of men. Some took their job seriously, trying to give dignity to the condemned. Others showed no mercy or compassion. Together, they combined to kill thousands of people.

Washington's Foreign Policy Consensus Fell Apart Long Before Donald Trump

from The Conversation

-- this post authored by Georg Lofflmann, University of Warwick

Donald Trump's latest bombastic remarks on North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, threatening Kim Jong-un with 'fire and fury' for his continued provocations are a stark reminder of how drastically the rhetoric of national security has changed in Washington. Where the Obama doctrine offered measured pragmatism and a mix of restraint, targeted counter-terrorism measures and diplomatic engagement, Trump has responded with martial swagger.
