New audio story of mine posted on Souschefseries.com! Click the photo to see the full slideshow and to hear the interview with Hillary Sterling of A Voce Madison.
Host of a Hearing is a combination of things to hear, see, read, and contemplate. I will host things for you to hear and post things for you to judge.
This is crazy and scary.
Verdict for humans: Guilty.
A scary :26 seconds. One of NASA’s labs analyzed and plotted temperature records from 1880 to 2011. The result is a historical document of our impending doom.
Global temperatures have warmed significantly since 1880, the beginning of what scientists call the “modern record.” At this time, the coverage provided by weather stations allowed for essentially global temperature data. As greenhouse gas emissions from energy production, industry and vehicles have increased, temperatures have climbed, most notably since the late 1970s.
In this animation of temperature data from 1880-2011, reds indicate temperatures higher than the average during a baseline period of 1951-1980, while blues indicate lower temperatures than the baseline average.

“We know the planet is absorbing more energy than it is emitting,” said GISS Director James E. Hansen. “So we are continuing to see a trend toward higher temperatures. Even with the cooling effects of a strong La Niña influence and low solar activity for the past several years, 2011 was one of the 10 warmest years on record.”
