A Year of Climate Change, as (Not) Presented by the EPA

The EPA may have determined that 2017 was the year global warming should go underground, but the atmosphere didn’t listen. According to NASA, 2017 was incontrovertibly the second-hottest year on earth since 1880, when such record-keeping first began. Europeans understandably bestowed the name Lucifer on a summer heat wave that reached as high as 117 degrees in some parts of Spain and brought lengthy stretches of triple-digit temperatures to many other countries. India continued its miserable, years-long streak of deathly hot summers , with the mercury rising as high as 120 degrees in some areas; hundreds of deaths all over the subcontinent were attributed to the heat. Here in the United States, we experienced our third-hottest year on record, with five states—Arizona, Georgia, New Mexico, North Carolina, and South Carolina—reaching new all-time highs.
