The dust bowl summer of 1936 was a hot one, and until this year, the hottest on record. No more. July 2012 is officially the hottest month ever recorded in the continental US. We also set a record for the warmest January through July period, and for the past 12 month period of time.
Climate change is real, it’s happening, and the worst part is yet to come as atmospheric CO2 levels continue to rise unchecked. Scary stuff.
