Washington, October 24 (RHC)-- In climate news, NASA -- the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration -- is reporting last month was the warmest September on record. Eleven of the past 12 months have now broken records.
Scientists around the world say 2016 is almost certain to be the warmest year ever, breaking last year’s record. This comes as it still feels like summer throughout much of the U.S. East Coast and Midwest. In Dodge City, Kansas, the temperature reached 101 degrees Fahrenheit on Monday.
In other climate news, a new study by the United Nations has found climate change could drive 122 million more people into extreme poverty in the next 15 years in part due to the impact it is already having on small-scale farmers.
