  • Report Says the Last Five Years Were the Hottest on Record

    According to a report released by the World Meteorological Organization Wednesday, because of human-caused global warming and a strong El Niño, Earth's wild weather this year is bursting the annual heat record.

The bird report on 2015 says it is the hottest year on record, surpassing last year's record heat. It made the proclamation without waiting for the end of the year because it has been so extraordinarily hot, and it's forecast to stay that way and unlikely cool down enough to not set a record.

  • Noam Chomsky Says Donald Trump Wasn't November 8th's Biggest News

    Noted public intellectual and political activist Noam Chomsky says the biggest news on November 8th wasn't the announcement of Donald Trump's victory in the race for the White House; it was the World Meteoroligical Organization's report at the international conference for climate change in Morocco. The report states that 2016 will go down as the hottest year on record, breaking the record set by 2015. In fact, the last five years have been the hottest ever recorded with sea levels constantly on the rise due to the melting of arctic ice. President elect Donald Trump is a denier of climate change, as well as most of his Republican cabinet. Chomsky says, "It is hard to find words to capture the fact that humans are facing the most important question in their history—whether organized human life will survive in anything like the form we know—and are answering it by accelerating the race to disaster."
