Hot, hot, hotter

“We’ve moved into a new neighborhood,” climatologists explain. How will home in an increasingly hot-house environment turn out?

The past decade was the hottest on record. Its second half was especially warm. The five hottest years ever have occurred during that time span. Now, as we close out 2020, the global temperatures for the months of September and November have surpassed anything ever recorded.

Humans why? What to do?
