Greta Thunberg ~ Climate Crisis


‘The endless conspiracy theories and denial of facts. The lies, hate and bullying of children who communicate and act on the science. All because some adults – terrified of change – so desperately don’t want to talk about the #ClimateCrisis. This is hope in disguise. We’re winning.’  #COP25

Earliest Sunsets


The winter solstice is the shortest day. It offers the shortest period of daylight. But, unless you live close to the Arctic Circle or Antarctic Circle, your earliest sunsets aren’t on or even near the solstice itself. Instead, your earliest sunsets will come before the winter solstice. The exact date of earliest sunset depends on your latitude. If you live in the southernmost U.S., or a comparable latitude (say, around 25 or 26 degrees north latitude), your earliest sunsets are in late November. If you’re farther north – say, around 40 degrees north latitude – your earliest sunsets are around December 7.

When is my earliest sunset?
