THE EARTH HEATS UP UNEVENLY

Just scrolled through a science-based chart of counties that have warmed the most since 1895.  Oregon’s #1 hot spot (changed the most) is Harney County, already at 2.2% Centigrade warmer on average than is was 125 years ago.  Not good…remember back when there was hope that our species would spring into action and prevent the entire planet from warming that 2 degrees, which is threatening to destroy coral reefs, acidify oceans, melt most glaciers and such?  Here’s the heat map, deeper the color, the more the area has heated up:heat mapClick here to read WaPo story that includes this chart and linkto list of all the most quickly heating counties in the U.S.  Too bad the map doesn’t include Alaska.
