Five Maps That Will Change How You See The World

';




from The Conversation

-- this post authored by Donald Houston, University of Portsmouth

Boston public schools recently announced that they will shift to using world maps based on the Peters projection, reportedly the first time a US public school district has done so. Why?

Current Weather Outlook

Written by

But there is still snow to be found. I don't want to be a travel agent but the Tahoe area in California looks to be getting a steady stream of new snow. NOAA (this is in jest) has sent out teams to find the elusive El Nino their dynamical models have divined but the only sightings so far are off Ecuador and Northern Peru.
