host: well so, as we were looking at this, the story of robert j. walker was really fascinating. and in talking to you and reading your report, it really sounds like its a story that we wouldnt think of as being about maritime heritage, but it really is, and it has a lot of stories about the maritime industry and the industry on the shore, and it has a lot of stories about the lighthouse. so i mean, this was a very interesting shipwreck. i had never heard of it.

renee shields: we had one in south carolina, and he had this new house and he was really proud of it, and it was beautiful. but it was a smaller house. he had this wonderful house that was on his land and he had that one, and the next one, he bought a house in virginia, and he had a house in virginia and one in florida. and he was looking at a house and he said, “i want to buy a house and it has to have all of these things.” and he went through all these things with us. he said, “i want a house that’s got a swimming pool and i want it to have a game room and i want it to have a two-car garage. i’m not sure i want the swimming pool. but i’m sure i want the game room and the two-car garage.” so we’re sitting there and he’s like, “yeah, i want the best house in the world.” and i said, “well, the best house in the world is your house.” and he’s like, “no, no, no. no, no. no. my house is the best house in the world.” and i said, “the best house in the world is the house that you’re living in.” and he was a bit taken aback and he said, “i guess i’m going to have to change my house.” but that’s the way he was. so it’s like, “why would you go change your house? why would you change your house?” but i said, “well, let’s go look at this house that you’re not going to change.” and we went out and looked at it. it was a lovely little house. but it wasn’t what he wanted. and he said, “well, i guess i’ll live in that house.” and he did, and it’s amazing. so he’s sold a few of them now, and he’s keeping that house. he’s still living in it, and i think it’s still his best house. but at least he’s got one that he loves.

we also see a great deal of salinity. as the ocean warms with our oceans taking heat from the atmosphere, as the salinity of that water rises, the pressure of that water drops and the greater pressure of that cool water is the result of that drop in salinity of the water. and so we see that change in salinity which in turn translates to stronger winds up high into the atmosphere. and we also see that in a very important part of the gulf of mexico where we have the loop current which hugs the florida panhandle. if you look at the loop current, it can be pictured as sort of like a vertical conveyor belt that is pushing water down south with the salinity of the water increasing down there to the south and that is a very important part of the deep ocean conveyor belt. and so it makes the atmosphere very unstable down there and that is part of the reason that we have the hurricanes that rip through there.
joe evjen: well, that is a great visualization. and it’s so important to understand that even though you have a storm season, there’s these bigger picture climate driving factors that can impact the season and is ever-changing, but not with the 10 year or 30 year averages.
laura rear: our impact on the environment are on a much shorter time frame as far as the ocean currents are concerned because we’re talking in decades if not centuries. and what happens is as we alter the climatic conditions, it will change the ocean currents. and that will then affect the climate and it may not be for a very long time, because they are very slow and it doesn’t take a long time for the thermal to change or for the sea water to change or for the salinity to change. but it will have an impact on the climate for years to come.
