As I gear up for the fourth, and final, Ride for Renewables here in Boulder, Colorado, I want to report on Boulder's 100-year flood that is all over the news.
On the afternoon of September 12, 2013, I stuck out on foot to see Boulder's 100-year flood with my own eyes. It was a humbling sight. This is a video I captured of raging Boulder Creek, after spending more time near it than one should.
Precious lives have been tragically lost, and others have been dramatically saved in Boulder's 100-year flood. The National Guard is evacuating the nearby town of Lyons, which has become an island surrounded by floodwaters. And I fear worse news is yet to come from the vulnerable canyon communities surrounding Boulder.
I think we have altered the climate so dramatically with polluting emissions that all bets are off as far as knowing what the weather will do from here on in. The age of weather weirding has arrived. If the weather-related disasters in Boulder, across America, and around the world are telling us anything, it's that humanity is in for a rough ride.
