theSamParr If Beavis and Butthead won a gold medal. Guy on the left has the best reaction. Look at that shit eating grin.

pkedrosky This may just be me, but ... I feel as if a headline saying something "wanes" is not a great paraphrase of body text that there is a "gradual declining trend in efficacy" of said thing.

pkedrosky I had a sensor problem at the beginning of the third set, hence the HR dropout.

29 Jul 2021, 2:10 am   @PKEDROSKY

pkedrosky Had a few people ask about my track program this morning, so here's the gist: It was a 30/30 effort—30 seconds hard, 30 seconds easy—in three sets with increasing intensity, starting at 70% RPE, then 80%, then 90%. I didn't do badly, but, like usual, I did the first set too hard.

pkedrosky The Sierra snowpack is hugely influenced by only a few events per season—called atmospheric rivers—and their absence, whether because of atmospheric circulation, warming, or anything else can put paid to a deep snowpack.

29 Jul 2021, 1:55 am   @PKEDROSKY

pkedrosky Fifteen years of Sierra Nevada March 31st snow. Not long enough to see the long-term decline, but still useful to see the boom-bust cycles. /cc @codytownsend /v @NASAEarth

pkedrosky On the serenity topic, the single most serenity-inducing thing I have done in the last twelve months is gotten off @Strava. Life-changing peace descended, not to mention the bliss from knowing you're no longer supporting a company whose product tacitly debauches wildlands.

pkedrosky And on the energy front, the greenest cities in America are generally the densest ones, like Manhattan, where can walk, use transit, go car-less, etc. The least green ones, with some exceptions, are more rural ones, where people drive longer distances, can't walk to much, etc.

pkedrosky I've been banging on about type conversion in over-burned areas for some time, but the topic is still misunderstood. When a forested area type converts to shrubs or grasses it doesn't become less fire-prone, it becomes more so. We are making problems worse.

28 Jul 2021, 5:25 pm   @PKEDROSKY
