The great forests that stretched from the Atlantic to the Mississippi - and elsewhere on our planet - are severely fragmented and rapidly vanishing. Our rivers have been dammed and are fading shadows of what they once were, and our population and resulting consumption of natural resources continues to grow unchecked.
So this report should come as no surprise.
When I first saw the graphic above, I immediately knew the cooler spot circled was primarily due to Greenland's melting ice sheet.
If you still believe we have nothing to do with the ongoing climatic changes on our planet, consider yourself clueless.
Get ready, folks...and Happy Friday!
