People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

July was Earth's hottest month on record

RATE THIS! +32

July was the hottest month on Earth since records began, averaging 16.6 C (61.9 F), according to US scientists. That is 0.08 degrees higher than the previous record, set in 1998, a significant margin in weather records. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said that they expect 2015 to be the hottest year on record.

 

Nine of the 10 hottest months since records began in 1880 have occurred since 2005, the NOAA report said. Scientists say global climate change and the impacts of the El Nino weather phenomenon are behind the record temperatures. The first seven months of 2015 have already set an all-time temperature record for the period.
 
"The world is warming. It is continuing to warm. That is being shown time and time again in our data," said Jake Crouch, physical scientist at NOAA's National Centres for Environmental Information.

I think that after this July people in many countries will fully accept the fact that global warming is real and that the trend is dangerous not just a problem for some future generations but now
