For those of you hoping for more summer days in the forecast, you should be getting your wish by 2050. But climate change has already considerably shifted what we consider normal here in British Columbia, and that has come with a cost. When meteorologists share a forecast for a particular location, they often compare the predicted temperature to "normal" temperatures for that time of the year.
It took my breath away. After driving an hour through intense snow squall bands, getting stuck in a parking lot snow bank and forgetting to bring gloves on a snowshoeing expedition — I found myself in the middle of a 3,000-year-old rainforest. The sun was streaming through those cumulus snow clouds, lighting up the lichen covering the towering cedars of the Ancient Forest Trail near McBride, B.C. The sound of a rushing waterfall flowing beneath the ice completed the moment.
Are we ready for change? By the year 2050, B.C. 's average yearly temperature will have risen by 2.5 C degrees. But that doesn't mean everything will just get hotter. "2050: Degrees of Change" is a podcast that explores how British Columbia's climate will change in just 30 years, and what that means for our daily life. Following the success of the podcast Fault Lines, CBC Vancouver Senior Meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe returns as host of "2050: Degrees of Change."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
