The planet is warming up, and there’s no sign of stopping.

It’s official: 2018 was the fourth warmest year ever recorded, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NASA say in their annual report, published Wednesday.

Global air temperatures have warmed steadily over past decades, shifting up and down slightly from year to year depending on natural climate oscillations like El Niño, but following a consistent upward path. The last five years—from 2014 to 2018—are the warmest years ever recorded in the 139 years that NOAA has tracked global heat. Land temperatures, they said, were more than two degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the 20th century average.

the earth has been warming since the ice age.   the conversation isn't the warming however what we should do.  I am not sure that air pollution is the challenge.  I will concede we have a ground pollution challenge.   On air pollution, most what we here is about someone making money.   Electric cars receive power from coal.  plus the batteries are worse for us than gas and oil.  Wind and solar are so expensive only the rich can afford.  while many scream global warming they fly around the world for pleasure, drive big engine vehicles, have huge energy consuming houses, etc.   As democrats do, it is about telling us what to do rather than leading by example.   Our earth's biggest challenges come from poor uneducated countries. 

every year democrats that cheer global warming take vacations to other countries, often multiple times.  just had another democrat voting person I know buy a under 10 mpg vehicle.
