It's a sad thing, but I can now easily pick how obsolete the CO2 graphs are by the maximum value shown. We consistently add 3 ppm per year, so without even reading the title, we can tell it was from 11 or 12 years ago. :(

Re: Climate Change

Probably the most likely outcome IMO is a warmer planet, higher sea levels, food shortages, more severe droughts and flooding. I don’t believe it’s a problem we will solve and instead is one we will have to deal with. At which point, I don't think we'll have the option of dealing with it. I think w...

Re: Climate Change

When the other greenhouse gasses we release/produce are also factored into that to give a CO2 equivalent, we are now over 500 ppm CO2e. In other words, if the effect of those gases were added to the current CO2, we’re at just over 500 already. (I’m on my phone right now, but I’ll find a reference fo...

Re: Fixing low backcast trajectory

Hello Greame and Paul! Let me try to interpret what you are saying and you tell me whether I got it right. For a long drag backcast Graeme rotates the thumb, which I interpret to mean switching to a v-grip (or similar). Paul teaches switching to a grip with palm facing down. So both change the grip...

Re: Fixing low backcast trajectory

G'day Jarmo, I made a video of my own cast a couple of years ago to help me analyse what actions I'm doing. It shows the solution I have for your question: switch the thumb position between front and back casts. You'll see it happen in the first few frames from this point in the video. https://youtu...

Re: Fixing low backcast trajectory

Aim higher. Sort of simplistic, but how do you define a trajectory that's too low? What is the problem with the cast being low? Is it crashing into the water before it unrolls? For a long forward cast, the back cast should finish quite low before initiating the forward cast, since you're aiming the ...

Several trips out on the salt. That's nasty!

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Hi Graeme and All, What term or terms do you use to describe the backward and forward movement of the stroke? Hi John, Backward and forward sums it up. The how is important ... I don't need to use the words push or pull in any lesson plan, other than to say that the tip is pulling the line and the ...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

I avoid both terms. They're confusing in this context.
