Climate change: 2015 ‘shattered’ global temperature record by wide margin – BBC


The data is in and it’s not good. The question continues to be not how we are going to reverse it, but how we are going to cope with it. I don’t think I’d want to be invested in any shoreline housing or businesses near oceans, for example, but more seriously, it’s unclear how we are going to feed the planet when most of the best agricultural locations are gone. Sure they’ll move north, but the soils in Canada, for example, don’t seem as fertile as those of the Great Plains. We need a lot of smart thinkers, because our politicians are failing to do the right thing. Even with the Paris accords reached recently, the change is going to outpace our ability to slow it down.

Data produced by the US space agency (Nasa) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) show that 2015 “shattered” the previous record set in 2014 by 0.13C.
