    Alister Doyle, January 4, 2018 (Reuters)

    “…[2017] was the second hottest worldwide on record, just behind a sweltering 2016, with signs of climate change ranging from wildfires to a thaw of Arctic ice…[T]emperatures averaged 14.7 degrees Celsius (58.46 Fahrenheit) at the Earth’s surface - 1.2C (2.2F) above pre-industrial times…[16 of the 17 warmest years in recorded history have been in the 21st century and there is overwhelming scientific consensus that man-made emissions are stoking the warming trend, according to the just-released Copernicus study, which] is in line with a projection by the U.N. World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in November…In 2016, an extra dose of heat came from El Nino, a natural event that releases heat from the Pacific Ocean every few years…But last year was the hottest year without an El Nino…[January 2018 analysis] showed temperatures in the eastern United States, Greenland and parts of central Asia were indeed colder than usual, while most of the rest of the world was warmer…” click here for more

    “Everything has its advantages and disadvantages…There are many solar power advantages worth noting…[It] helps to slow/stop global warming…[and] saves society billions or trillions of dollars…[It improved energy reliability because it is predictable and it improves energy security because] no one can go and buy the sun or turn sunlight into a monopoly…[Buying a solar system improves energy independence because the sun is] an essentially independent source of electricity…[for individuals,] cities, counties, states, countries, and even companies…[It] is a job-creating powerhouse. Money invested in solar power creates two to three times more jobs than money invested in coal or natural gas…[The only real] disadvantage is that the sun does not shine 24 hours a day…[but batteries can] store electricity produced by solar panels for use sometime later…[W]ith storage, solar power could theoretically supply the world with all of its electricity needs…” click here for more
