One day ...

Maybe a few centuries from now, archaeologists from another world will stumble across a planet, 3rd out from its sun, that is nothing more than a charred, lifeless piece of rock and wonder how such an advanced society could manage to incinerate itself so easily.


The combined global land and ocean surface temperature data also found the January-June and April-June periods were the warmest on record, according to NOAA's National Climatic Data Center, which based its findings on measurements that go back as far as 1880.

In June, the combined average for global land and ocean temperatures was 61.1 degrees Fahrenheit
(16.2 Celsius) -- 1.22 degrees Fahrenheit (0.68 Celsius) more than the 20th century average of 59.9 degrees Fahrenheit (15.5 Celsius).

Temperatures warmer than average spread throughout the globe in recent months, most prominently in Peru, in the central and eastern United States and in eastern and western Asia, according to NOAA.


We have to stop burning shit to produce energy, soon.

Great thanks to Ol' Fez for the link.
