Sea breeze[edit]

Somone should take a look at the Sea breeze article, it is confusing. Maybe the Sea breeze/Land breeze system should be changed to an article that describes two kinds of Sea breez - Night breez and Day breez a system that is thaught during geography lessons in Poland.

Article: Atmosphere[edit]

Atmosphere is up for voting at Article Creation and Improvement Drive; I'd suggest that you folks go support it - the article does need some good work on it. Cheers! - Iotha 01:10, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

List of scientists opposing the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming[edit]

Are you aware of this article? Aside from the fact that the lemma itsself might be somewhat questonable, it might be important that people being well versed in the topic monitor that list, because otherwise it is likely to accumulate outdated and/or rectracted claims by various scientist, just to create an impression of a large scientific dissent regarding global warming.--Kmhkmh (talk) 22:14, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Capitalisation of wind names[edit]

In the Katabatic wind article, an editor has recently changed the initial capitalisation of the names of various winds to lower-case, including foehn, bora, mistral, oroshi. etc., while retaining the initial upper-case caps for the Chinook and Santa Ana winds. on the grounds that: "none of these winds are capitalized on their own respective pages".

Does this inconsistency suggest that the North American examples are somehow more important than the others? Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 01:57, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Well if I may say so, "Chinook" and "Santa Ana" are named after.....well things that already have proper names. The other winds are common concepts from other languages. Transphasic (talk) 02:13, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
