TO THE EDITOR:
The extreme heat & humidity of a few weeks ago had us all thinking about, if not at least feeling, the effects of a warming climate.
If those days of record heat weren’t enough to convince you of the reality of climate change, consider the fact that 16 of the 17 hottest years ever recorded have occurred since 2001.
The hottest of all was 2016, and 2017 is already on track to beat it according to the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
The outlook for our planet and its beings is bleak, but the good news is there are students on campus working to stand up and fight for action.
