New study predicts hotter summers

Home. Earth.

As many of you know, the Earth is getting warmer.  Warmer doesn't sound like a bad thing, unless you realize it's not going to stop getting warmer.  At least not in our life time.  The earth's Biosphere is a delicate one.  It's the only known one of it's kind.  What we sow today we will reap tomorrow!  For better or for worse!

Extreme Heat

2005 was the warmest year ever recorded on our planet Globally (Land and Oceans).  2006 was really hot too!  2005 was the warmest, 2007 tied for 2nd with 1998.  The eight warmest years in the GISS records have all occurred since 1998, and the 14 warmest years in the records have all occurred since 1990.  Credit: Goddard Institutes of Space Studies.

Mommy why did all the Ice Melt

A warming world.  A climate changing. The Athens Banner Herald front page Wednesday, August, 5, 2009 "Study Predicts Hotter Summers".  I've been working outside for most all my life. No real news to me. This link is a google search for "Study Predicts Hotter Summers" What we do today effects tomorrow in some small way.  We are all in this together.

For many years, I have worked hard to create a life and a business that would have a positive impact on our planet.  I recycle local wood debris and food (residuals) waste for composting and mulch.  A lot, maybe  most of what the Athens Clarke County picks up curb side winds up in our landfill as daily cover.  Your leaf and limb is contributing to the Methane released from our landfill and causing the temperatures to rise.  True!
