No, it's not just you, it is really getting warmer, and the United States is not the only country being affected. The World Meteorological Organisation reported that the global average land and sea surface temperatures for the first 10 months of 2014 had soared higher than ever recorded. WMO also reported that 14 of the 15 hottest years were recorded in the 21st century.
Global Warming is no longer a crazy, extreme theory, as once believed by many!
Now that people have finally accepted it, what are people doing about it?
The United Nations weather agency gathered in Lima to discuss climate change negotiations in attempts to prevent the temperatures from rising to dangerous levels.
While that is a very good thing, we have to remember that it is NOT only up to them!
It is up to humans to collectively realize this dangerous problem and work together on the solution.
The best part is that the things we can do to help are so simple!
Tips on bringing downs the heat:
- Change your light bulbs in your home to Energy Star qualified products.
- Carpool to work with your coworkers. Make it fun by sharing breakfast pastries and coffee!
- And one that I hope we all know, REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE!
