Grass isn't greener anywhere because of global warming
The Kansas City Star
It is not a surprise that the normally lush lawns that people enjoy in the spring are looking as if they’re getting a July heat beat down now.
The United States is closing out its hottest spring on record, according to federal officials. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that March, April and May in the lower 48 states were the hottest on record by a full two degrees.
Rainfall is way below normal. The first five months of this year have been the warmest in U.S. weather history.
This continues a trend of temperatures for years remaining unusually high, adding fuel to ice melts, rising oceans and other global warming threats.
If we dare look ahead, we can expect to sweat a lot more and pay a lot higher cooling bills this summer.
