5 hot years

As reported in today’s Washington Post: “Last month, the World Meteorological Organization projected that the period between the beginning of 2015 and the end of this year will mark the Earth’s five warmest years on record.” Some scientists now say that we have even less time to change our greenhouse-gas-emitting patterns than had been thought previously.
The Post article also announces several crucial meetings about climate change that are occurring this year: “A major U.N. conference on climate action in New York this September and the COP25 climate change conference in Chile this December.”
It’s good to see some such hope-generating activities underway.
