We're cooking the planet.....(part 6)
The plain and simple truth: the planet is getting warmer, and it's not a random blip.
Human beings are cooking the planet—this is the only planet our grandchildren will be living on.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that the average global temperature in October was the 5th warmest October on record. We got the hottest October in 2003. The coldest October in the record book was in 1912, exactly a hundred years ago.
And by the way, check out the chart on this link – so far this year, the northeastern United States has been one of the hottest places on the planet, with consistently record high temperatures month after month.
We're cooking the planet, folks. We can't undo the damage that's already done.
For the sake of our grandchildren, we should be working at lot harder right now to slow down the human activities that are causing ever higher temperatures and global climate change.
It's going to be expensive.
Think of it as a gift to your grandchildren.
