Last month tied the record as the hottest September since records began being kept in 1880. It was the third time since 2000 that the world set or tied a heat record for September.
This is the 331st consecutive month with global temperatures above the 20th century average. According to NOAA, all of the top 10 warmest years on record have occurred after 1997, when skeptics claimed global warming stopped.

The final presidential debate concluded Monday, and media outlets are pointing out that not a single question about climate change was asked in any of the debates. The first time this has happened in a generation, as The Huffington Post reported.
Bryan Walsh at Time has some thoughts on why climate change has become the missing issue in this presidential campaign, but the plain truth is politicians respond to the will of the people, and if we do not raise our voices to demand action, nothing will change.
As Walsh put it: “In the end, though, it’s difficult to blame either candidate for dropping climate talk in this election. Beyond committed environmentalists, there hasn’t been much evidence that Americans even want to think about global warming, much less vote on it.”
Please encourage others to become part of the movement to demand our leaders freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions now. And please remember to vote on Election Day.
The truth is thus that the American President was chastised by the people not to follow on the National path of a non-fossil fuel future and he is being faced by an oppponent that made it into a political virtue ti deny science and to claim that non-fossil fuels are nothing but the fiction of a profeteer in his own immage.
Not to weigh in at election time, Laurie David of StopGlobalWarming.org is unveiling on November 9th a movie about the arctic that was 5 years in the making that shows the retreat and melting of the Arctic ice.
We do not mince notes when it come to dates – the US elections are November 6th and the infamous date of the Krystallnacht is November 9th. So- we wait for the movie for after the elections and show it on a historically most infamous evening.

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate.
Chasing Ice, which opens in theaters in November, is the story of one man’s mission to gather undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Balog deployed revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
