Chilling report on state of climate

Updated 5/29/2018 10:40 AM

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released a report showing that April marked the planet's 400th consecutive month with above-average temperatures. This is a staggering milestone.

The authors of the government report did not mince words about the cause: "It's mainly due to anthropogenic (human-caused) warming. We will continue to see global temperatures increase in the future."


Human-caused climate change is real, and it's vital that news outlets alert the public to these findings and inform and engage their readers and viewers on the climate crisis.
