Daily Climate Change: Global Map of Unusual Temperatures Jan 15 2014

temp anomaly world map reanalyzer jan 15, 2014

How unusual has the weather been? No one event is “caused” by climate change, but global warming, which is predicted to increase unusual, extreme weather,  is having a daily effect on weather, worldwide. Looking above at recent temperature anomalies around the globe, we still have that unusually warm, high pressure ridge that’s been sitting for months now off the west US coast, blocking cloud formation and  keeping the west in drought, and extending unusually warm conditions thru Canada into Alaska. Another unusually warm area  extends along much of the US eastern seaboard, into the Atlantic, and all the way up to the north pole. Unusually cold conditions surround the pole over Eurasia, with patches of slightly unusual cold through the mid US. Daily updates of this map can be seen here.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
