The latest in global warming

Unless you’re ignoring the science, the Earth continues to exhibit signs of global warming.  2016 came in as the second hottest year (behind 2012) on record for the US.  With El Niño expected to fade in 2017, things should cool off a little this year but the upwards trend continues.  As for the ice in the oceans, global sea ice levels have never been as low as they are currently.  Troubling signs overall, and with climate change deniers poised to take control of the US, attempts to avert this impending disaster are not likely to succeed.  🙁
