“Deny this”

Bloomberg’s science writers Tom Randall and Blacki Migliozzi challenge all people who still deny that climate change exists. An animation created with data from the National Climatic Data Center shows in a simple but impressive way: 2014 was the hottest year since 1880.
The climate graph “shows the Earth’s warming climate, recorded in monthly measurements from land and sea over 135 years”, the page explains, “Temperatures are displayed in degrees above or below the 20th-century average. Thirteen of the 14 hottest years are in the 21st century.”
Randall pretty much summed up the main problem of these results last summer: “But the truly disturbing part isn’t that we’ve hit a new record. It’s that we live in a season of new records. This may be the the new warm normal. To find previous hottest Mays, you don’t have to search far; four of the five hottest Mays on record have occurred since 2010. More difficult is finding a cool May. The last time the month fell below its 20th-century average was 39 years ago.”
Playing this down is no longer an option. But neither is giving up. We must act now! We fight against climate change by buying emission certificates off the market. Help TheCompensators*! Contribute to cooling down our planet!
