2012 hottest year on record, federal agency says

Source: CNN

The first eight months of 2012 were the hottest ever recorded in the continental United States and the summer period of June, July and August was the third hottest ever, the National Climatic Data Center reported Monday.

Although the August average of 74.4 degrees Fahrenheit made it only the 16th hottest August on record, the hottest July ever combined with the hottest spring on record to keep January-August 2012 atop the record books.

The nation as a whole is averaging 4 degrees Fahrenheit above average for the year. That's a full degree higher than the same period in 2006, the second hottest January-August on record.

2. That's scary for real

Climate change is going to alter things like nothing else has. Even worse than the Great Plague or the World Wars because we aren't even trying to mitigate it. It'll get worse and worse. It won't just level off at some bearable plateau all by itself.
