Do you have questions about climate change?
Explore the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions here.
The climate is changing. The earth is warming up, and there is now overwhelming scientific consensus that it is happening, and human-induced. With global warming on the increase and species and their habitats on the decrease, chances for ecosystems to adapt naturally are diminishing.
Many agreed that climate change may be one of the greatest threats facing the planet. Recent years show increasing temperatures in various regions, and/or increasing extremities in weather patterns.
Climate change is changing our economy, health and communities in diverse ways. Scientists warn that if we do not aggressively curb climate change now, the results will likely be disastrous.
Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm up.
What it means to you:
Climate change also poses unique challenges to human health, such as:
• Significant increases in the risk of illness and death related to extreme heat and heat
• Some diseases transmitted by food, water, and insects are likely to increase.
• Certain groups, including children, the elderly, and the poor, are most vulnerable to
climate-related health effect
• Hotter weather enables deadly mosquitoes to travel greater distances; carbon dioxide in the air aggravates asthma and allergies.
These impacts will result in significant costs to our families and the economy.
What You Can Do
Driving a car, using electricity to light and heat your home, and throwing away garbage all lead to greenhouse gas emissions. You can reduce emissions through simple actions like changing a light bulb, powering down electronics, using less water, and recycling. This site provides more than 25 easy steps you can take at home, school, the office, and on the road to protect the climate, reduce air pollution, and save money. Small steps add up, if we all do our part.
Here's the good news: technologies exist today to make cars that run cleaner and burn less gas, modernize power plants and generate electricity from nonpolluting sources, and cut our electricity use through energy efficiency. The challenge is to be sure these solutions are put to use.

I was not satisfied with the handful of big name weather applications available for Android. In these I found videos and audio, machine generated twitter feeds and cat pictures. I found raw numbers with little thought and a user experience suffering because of it. I found it easy to get the predicted temperature for 10am a week from Sunday (accurate? not really), but difficult to compare conditions between home and work.
I created a Mobile Weather Application to help me follow the climate at the locations I care about. Start with a list of places and cover their conditions, temperature and local time. Easily add any city in the world and any person from my contact list. In the details I don’t just want raw numbers. At the top I need to know if it is calm or windy, dry or muggy, the temperature higher or lower than average. I also want a day by day forecast for 10 days out. I want my own data to judge global warming.
Think of Weather Tunnel as your personal weather report. It focuses on weather for the places you care about. Add locations by typing in the city name or using an address from contacts. See details and day to day forecasts with a swipe. The travel conditions are not just the local weather and forecast, but the local time for all the places you are going. The sunset, sunrise and moon phase are all there. Change your preferences if you prefer Celsius temperatures, Metric distance measures, 24 hour clocks and other ways of looking at the numbers. Not all the features I want are there yet, but it is a good start.
The Weather Tunnel uses data from the Weather Underground. I have found the Weather Underground data to be excellent, and the breath of their collection methods is unrivaled. You can follow a personal weather station that feeds into the Weather Underground database. In Search, just type in the station code with a prefix of "pws:", e.g. pws:KCASANFR53.

Cavalor, founded in 1989, celebrates its 20 years anniversary in 2009!
Cavalor original roots can be found in the agricultural and life sciences markets. But it rapidly shifted its focus towards the equine world and the nutrition, health and care of sport, breeding and recreational horses.
Over the past 20 years, Cavalor has established a leading position in the equine feed industry as an innovator and knowledge provider. Today the Cavalor products are distributed in more than 45 countries around the world. As of January 1st, 2009 Cavalor has increased its world wide presence by establishing permanent operations on the North American continent with the creation of Cavalor Inc. Until that date, the penetration of Cavalor products in the North American market was minimal with a couple of distributors representing only the supplements and care products in the USA and Canada. The objective of Cavalor Inc. is to make Cavalor a leading brand in the North American market. Its mission is to organize and manage the distribution of Cavalor products, promote and manage the brand, and establish partnerships to locally manufacture the Cavalor products, all in North America.
Throughout its existence, Cavalor has dedicated a lot of effort and resources to innovation, through pure research, applied research and field testing. This process has allowed Cavalor to gather an incomparable wealth of knowledge that is embedded in products that do really work. Our motto “When the result counts, you count on our knowledge” is derived from those facts. When the results counts, one tries to find the products that work. In the equine world, the products that work can only be based on scientific and experimental knowledge.
Cavalor comprehensive product line addresses the great diversity of nutritional requirements of the equine world in general and each individual horse in particular. Quality if paramount to Cavalor as well as compliance with FEI and Jockey Club doping standards (since the Cavalor products are used by many competitive riders).
Every other year, Cavalor organizes the “European Equine Health & Nutrition Congress”, an international event where scientists from around the world come together to share innovative ideas, knowledge, and insight on horse nutrition. This congress is organized in cooperation with the Ghent University, Utrecht University and Wageningen University as well respected European equine nutritionists and researchers.
Because of the wealth of knowledge and experience that Cavalor has accumulated over the years, it has become a source of reference and advice form many veterinarians. The same is true for top figures in the equestrian sports (such as Jos Lansink, current show jumping World Champion, Eric Lamaze, current show jumping Olympic Champion, Anky Van Grunsven, current dressage World and Olympic Champion, Ann Poels, current reining BQHA World Champion and many others). The champions not only seek products that work but the knowledge that make them work. In Cavalor, they find both.
And so it goes. After 20 years, the Cavalor research team is still hard at work, looking to continuously improve the feeds, the supplements, and the care products to improve the performance of equine athletes in their prime and contribute to their comfortable retirement after years of generous efforts.
