The EPA has published this online interactive map to allow you to locate major greenhouse gas sources around the country. (And I suspect that a large number of those also emit numerous other pollutants, but that's just a hunch.)

I suppose it's nice that there's at least some decent news in the world...

Looks like on about one day out of ten this year, the D/FW Metroplex exceeded federal standards for ozone levels. Maybe that's part of the reason why I've felt like crap so much lately. Might be time to start thinking about moving back to the nice, clean Pacific Northwest. Yeah, there are issues there, too, but it seems like I always felt a little better up there...

Interesting article. In order to see Marie Curie's papers, you have to wear protective gear and sign a waiver before opening the lead-lined boxes containing them...

I've been watching the Weather Channel's coverage of the tornadoes that are going through central Oklahoma this afternoon. It's been one hell of a year for that state, and quite a week even. The most powerful earthquake in the state's history Saturday night, and tornadoes on Monday. No fun at all...

We just felt an earthquake here in Denton, TX. Did a little searching on the web and saw that there was a 5.2 magnitude earthquake near Sparks, OK, about 50 miles east of Oklahoma City. I thought when I moved here from the west coast that I was moving into tornado country, and out of the shaking lands. Guess they can hit anywhere, though...

So, I've decided to go ahead and take on NaNoWriMo again this year, despite all the crap going on in my life right now. Hopefully it will be a little spell of quiet in the midst of the turmoil. As of now, I'm about 1100 words behind pace for yesterday, but I'm pretty sure I can make that up within a day or two...
