"CLIMATE CRISIS"

CNN Morning Briefing on Climate crisis

If you felt a little warmer than normal last month, it wasn't your imagination. July might have been the hottest month ever recorded on Earth. The global average temperatures last month could end up exceeding temps from July 2016, when the planet experienced extreme warming, according to the Copernicus Climate Change Programme, which analyzes temperature data from around the planet. Scientists say the possible new record (final data will be released Monday) would be the result of the intense heat waves that have punished Europe this summer. We've also seen wildfires in the Arctic, mass melting of Greenland's ice sheet and the hottest month ever recorded in Anchorage, Alaska. Scientists say climate change will fuel even more heat waves and extreme weather.

Record heat waves might have made July the hottest month ever recorded
By Isabelle Gerretsen and Brandon Miller, CNN
Updated 7:02 PM ET, Thu August 1, 2019

Intense heat waves have swept Europe this summer, breaking temperature records in at least a dozen countries. Scientists have warned that the world should expect more scorching heat waves and extreme weather due to climate change.

Europe wasn't the only region baking in July. Anchorage, Alaska, recorded its hottest month ever, and extreme heat helped facilitate "unprecedented" wildfires in the Arctic and triggered mass melting of Greenland's ice sheet.

"This is not science fiction. It is the reality of climate change. It is happening now, and it will worsen in the future without urgent climate action. Time is running out to rein in dangerous temperature increases with multiple impacts on our planet," Taalas stressed. https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/01/world/july-hottest-month-climate-sci-intl/index.html?utm_source=CNN+Five+Things&utm_campaign=6e5c7b5b64-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_08_01_01_11&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_6da287d761-6e5c7b5b64-104928233



As the only bear, officially listed as a "marine mammal," polar bears should not be drowning, in record numbers, because polar ice is rapidly melting!
