IS IT REALLY GETTING HOTTER?
This week I focused on global warming. Well, this has been one hot summer. Here we are into the Fall, and if you missed it, that was the Fall Equinox this past Monday. Temperatures hit 90 F and higher all this week in Honolulu. I don't remember when this ever occurred so late after the summer. Actually, I golfed 18 holes yesterday at the Leilehua Golf Course, and thought, what a great day. With a cool breeze every few seconds, this was still paradise.
Well, it turned out that last month was the hottest August in recorded history. Record-keeping began in 1880. And that was not all. Summer 2014 was the warmest on record for Planet Earth, at least since 1880. So, yes, it is getting hotter.
My postings this week have been long and pedantic, so, have a great weekend.
