A Hole in the Wind: A Bicycle Journey Across the US, Looking at Climateā€¯ After retiring from NOAA in 2011, the speaker rode 4200 miles from Delaware to Oregon, looking at the effects of climate change up close and talking with people along the way. He came across fragmented barrier islands on the coast, drought and expanding wind farms in Kansas, beetle-killed forest in Colorado and fire in Idaho. Along the way, he encountered a toddler's beauty pageant in Maryland, the landscape of fracking in Pennsylvania, a tornado party in Missouri, and a ghost town in Wyoming. His book, A Hole in the Wind, was released by Pegasus Books this summer.
