2012 hottest year on record in US

3 posts in this topic

Last year was the hottest on record for the contiguous United States, shattering the previous mark set in 1998 by a wide margin, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Tuesday.

The average temperature was 55.3 degrees, 1 degree above the previous record and 3.2 degrees more than the 20th-century average. Temperatures were above normal in every month between June 2011 and September 2012, a 16-month stretch that hasn’t occurred since the government began keeping such records in 1895.

Hottest year on record so far, 2013 has just begun.

Last year was hot and dry and the year before we had constant flooding, tornadoes, hailstorms like I've never seen. Weather is getting stranger all the time. What we are going to do about it, I don't know. It will take a world effort and a effort on the part of the individual too. We need a better way to heat our homes and power our toys.
