It's Never Been This Hot In October Before, And It's Only Going To Get Hotter

United States

I left my apartment today in a just a t-shirt, checking out the golden trees on my block, cheerful as can be while soaking up the warmth of the sun.

The only problem with this picture is that it’s October. And I live in New York. And this isn’t supposed to be happening.

As CNN explains, over 25 cities in America have experienced record high temperatures for this time of year, and 40 cities might break more records this week.


I don’t think it should come as much of a surprise to any of us that weather abnormalities like this keep happening.


Global warming, a subject both presidential candidates barely even bring up, has been proven to lead to more and more extreme weather conditions, which will continue to put lives and property at risk.
