Remember our Red-Hot Summer? by Fouad Medjekdoud

USA Today’s article “Earth roasts through hottest summer ever recorded” by Doyle Rice, talks about, as the title indicates, how the summer we just had has seen record breaking temperatures all over the world. The author reported that NOAA’s climate scientist Ahira Sánchez-Lugo linked the rise in temperatures to the fading El Niño and human activity. Personally I’ve been to Texas visiting relatives and temperatures have been hovering in the hundreds for several, successive days making it unbearable for people to walk out in the open.  But coming back to NYC was not a total relief. In fact, for several days in a row, the temperature has reached 96 degrees Fahrenheit, and nobody can deny the real effects of climate change we’ve experienced this year. And as we’re on the verge of hosting winter, I can’t but wonder what surprises the weather will bring in the next few months.
