These past few days have been flash backs into the past for me, as I looked at my now teenage son’s tot-dino-phase. So, it seemed natural for me to stay on course when the time came for the letter D for ABC Wednesday. While I will just link back to my older dinosaur posts with a brief overview of them here, I do have other Ds to feature. So today, D is for Dinos, Dora, and Yes, the Deep Freeze Too.
Dora and the Dinosaurs:
Here are the dino-posts I referred to.
D is also for Dora the Explorer. My tween used to watch this years ago. Dora was definitely daring, annoying at times as well, but entertaining in her own right!
So I present this photo below for those two Ds. A two-in-one party we had for both our lil ones (since their bdays were just over a month apart and we had gotten caught up in life) – Dora and Dinosaurs share the stage, well, the cake!
The Deep Freeze:
But D is also for the Deep Freeze that has literally frozen most parts of the US. Many researchers agree that, yes, this deep freeze – this polar vortex – is connected to global warming. While there are others who maintain it might not be connected.
Regardless, unlike the POTUS who requested global warming back in his tweets, we know we want to say Good Bye to global warming. Social media rushed to educate the President on the connections, and the difference between weather and climate.
On PBS News Hour today: Dr.Jennifer Francis(a research professor at Rutgers University) used a cool analogy to explain the difference between weather and climate – she mentions it is similar to the difference between your mood and your personality. You can see the full interview below.
And Seth Meyers referred to possibly that very same parallel in his take on those very same presidential tweets!
You can check out my previous posts for the month and for Ultimate Blog Challenge below. Caught up now (at last!) – this is my day 30 post for UBC. Linking this to ABC Wednesday.
