    Average global surface temperature last month was 2.5F (or 1.14C) above the 20th-century average

    temperature of more than 20C (68F) had been recorded for the first time in Antarctica

    => Earth just had hottest January since records began, data shows

      Even the people who make money off of fossil fuels in Russia are starting to notice that the regions where they have their dachas or villas are getting wildfirier or less ski-able or stormier. I’m sure Putin’s propaganda has some sort of non-greenhouse explanation for it, though.

      • Brent Jensen-Schmidt Says:

        Less ski-able, now that IS serious.

        • dumboldguy Says:

          Not to worry—-those who make $$$ off fossil fuels will just hop planes to where the skiing is good. My son lives in Crested Butte CO, a town that lives off Texas oil money spent during the winter ski season.

    Anyone want to bet that January 2021 will be even hotter?
