Did you hear the alarms this past Saturday? It took the form of a news report about alarming temperatures in the Arctic.

CBS News reported, “Alarming heat scorched Siberia on Saturday as the small town of Verkhoyansk (67.5°N latitude) reached 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit… Reaching 100 degrees in or near the Arctic is almost unheard of.

Why should this concern us on a local level? The article goes on to mention, “The average heat across Russia from January to May is so remarkable that it matches what’s projected to be normal by the year 2100 if current trends in heat-trapping carbon emissions continue… The extreme events of recent years are due to a combination of natural weather patterns and human-caused climate change.”
