Hard To Deny Global Warming

Local and regional authorities have decided that climate change and global warming are not relevant for public policy. Even Miami and Coral Gables leaders should start thinking about the evident impact on our town.
NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies has released its monthly global temperature data. It reveals that there is no April in the temperature record before 2005 that was warmer than April 2010.
And that’s in spite of the fact that we are still in the tail end of a major La Niña and just coming out of “the deepest solar minimum in nearly a century.” April 2011 is surpassed in warmth only by 2005, 2007, and 2010. It tied with 2002 and just beat 1998.
