Don’t tell climate skeptics, but everything is getting hotter:
The 2000-2009 decade was the warmest on record, easily surpassing the previous hottest decade — the 1990s — researchers said Tuesday in a report providing fresh evidence that the planet may be warming at a potentially disastrous rate.
Last year’s climate milestones included:
The deadliest February tornado in Oklahoma history.
The largest wildfire in Los Angeles County history.
Worst deluge in decades in northern Brazil, affecting 186,000 people.
Heavy rainfall in northern Argentina, causing a landslide affecting 20,000 people.
