Hot Climate Data

According to the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the globally averaged temperature for August 2015 was the warmest August on record. For the world. A third of the contiguous U.S. is in drought conditions, while some of the recent flooding in S.C. was unprecedented. As in never seen before.

But climate change 1) couldn’t possibly be happening and 2) couldn’t possibly have anything to do with human activity, right?

Sometimes it’s frustrating to feel that I can’t convince people with their heads in the sand. But anything we do makes a difference. The little choices we make add up, one way or the other. Local produce (less fuel for transport), better vehicles or combining errands, better appliances or bulbs, less wasteful purchasing (less energy used for production), anything matters. Anything sensible or reasonable is likely to become part of your routine.

Is it enough? Depends on everyone else. Is it enough? The best you can do is the best you can do.
