There are 10 kinds of people who understand binary: Those who do, and those who don't.

This is cool. Not temperature cool, but you know what I mean.

Type in the name of your home town (or maybe the biggest city close to you) and count the number of record high temperatures set in 2015.
It works with many cities in the world (3,116 cities in the database).

Mine had six record high temperatures, including one in January and two in March.

Oh, and NASA has just done a study that concludes that there is a 99% chance that 2016 will be hotter than 2015.

I have an ultra conservative friend who tells me climate change is a myth. It's very comforting to listen to him.

I could introduce you?

Belief in climate change must effect climate change. In Atlanta there were no record temperatures set, but in Boston there were three.

Yeah, the further north your city (or the further south in the Southern Hemisphere) then generally the more record temperatures you're going to see.
If you type in and look at "Singapore", it is almost 100 F every day of the year.

This demonstration is not authorized and is in clear violation of Mall of America policy.

Those who continue to demonstrate will be subject to arrest.

Here in Rochester, NY, we had 9 record highs and 5 record lows. Apparently rising global temperatures slowed the jet stream last winter, causing it to wander more than usual. In our case, it wandered south from the Arctic for most of February.

Quote:
As the string of record-breaking global temperatures continues unabated, June 2016 marks the 14th consecutive month of record-breaking heat.

According to two US agencies – NASA and NOAA – June 2016 was 0.9C hotter than the average for the 20th century, and the hottest June in the record which goes back to 1880. It broke the previous record, set in 2015, by 0.02C.

The 14-month streak of record-breaking temperatures was the longest in the 137-year record. And it has been 40 years since the world saw a June that was below the 20th century average.

On Sunday, I did some intensive yard work - tearing out vines, weeds, cutting down "volunteer" trees that had grown in our garden. It was so hot that afterwards I had to take a cold shower for 15 minutes to cool down.

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!
