    If we – meaning the entire world – can't reduce greenhouse gas emissions, brace yourself for extreme droughts, more wildfires, flooding, food shortages and more heat-related illnesses and deaths.

    Record high temperatures far exceed record lows – a trend of the climate crisis

    One would think lions and tigers are used to hot weather. Probably so – but this past week has been much hotter than normal for two-thirds of the United States.

    "Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice," wrote Robert Frost in 1920. Nearly a century later, it appears the world will end in carbon dioxide emissions and global warming unless emissions can be drastically reduced – and we don't have much time left.

    Climate change: 12 years to save the planet? Make that 18 months.

    Globally, last month was the hottest June ever recorded. This month will be the hottest July on record. Would anyone care to make predictions for August and September? This is from Business Insider:

    At least 20 people have died from Europe's extreme heat. The Arctic caught on fire. This is what climate change looks like.

    Final data will be released in four days. The four hottest years on record are 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. This year is likely to be the second-hottest year on record, which will mean the five hottest years have been the last five years. "The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, causing it to scorch everyone with its fire. Everyone was burned by this blast of heat....." – Revelation 16:8-9, New Living Translation

    Record heat waves might have made July the hottest month ever recorded

    Alaska had 95 consecutive days of above average temperatures this year (April 26 to July 29). July was Alaska's hottest month on record. Almost every major city had record high temperatures. On July 4, Anchorage had a high of 90°. The expanse of ice in Alaska in July was the smallest on record. The water in Alaska's streams and rivers has also reached record high temperatures, in the low 80s. Excessive heat worldwide is killing people, fish and animals. At least insects are still thriving.

    The water is so hot in Alaska it's killing large numbers of salmon
