May be cold outside now but 2018 was Fourth Hottest Year - Article

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

We are really in trouble:
Nine of the 10 warmest years have occurred since 2005, with the last five years (2014–2018) ranking as the five warmest years on record. The year 1998 is the only year from the 20th century among the 10 warmest years on record, currently tying with 2009 as the ninth warmest year on record.

Yes it was. An the extreme weather we're seeing will not stop any time soon. I was on the East Coast over the past two weeks. Two different trips to NYC, with temps down to 6 and then 0 degrees F. And I expect very hot weather this summer..sigh
