The news on the climate crisis keeps getting worse:
July was the hottest month in the continental United States on record, beating the hottest month in the devastating Dust Bowl summer of 1936, the U.S. government reported on Wednesday.
It was also the warmest January-to-July period since modern record-keeping began in 1895, and the warmest 12-month period, eclipsing the last record set just a month ago, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said.
This is the fourth time in as many months that U.S. temperatures broke the hottest-12-months record.
Our advancements in clean energy aren’t anywhere near being able to mitigate it, and there’s little or no public outrage — just resignation and redneck defiance.
