“The year 2015 was one for the record books. According to data and information compiled by NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information in Asheville, North Carolina, the 2015 global surface temperature was the warmest on record, while the contiguous U.S. temperature was the second warmest. This talk will put 2015 into a historical perspective and examine what the warmest year on record for the globe meant for North Carolina.” – Jake Crouch.
