Daily Climate Change: Global Map of Unusual Temperatures, Feb 13 2014

anomal tempfeb1314 500 cctw 94How 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, the polar aneurism over the US has changed but persists, while the North Pole  and surroundings (that big orange spot)  is experiencing much warmer than normal temperatures – not good news for  our Arctic thermal shield of ice. Hotter than usual temperatures continue to dominate human habitats. (Add 0.3-0.4 C to have these anomaly values calibrate with those of NASA.)

 

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.
