Meanwhile, Outside...

From NOAA:
The global land and ocean surface temperature departure from average for October 2019 was the second highest for the month of October in the 140-year NOAA global temperature dataset record, which dates back to 1880. The year-to-date temperature for 2019 was also the second warmest on record for the January–October period.
The October temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.76°F above the 20th century average of 57.1°F and the second highest October temperature on record. This value was only 0.11°F shy of tying the record warm October set in 2015.
The 10 warmest Octobers have all occurred since 2003; however, the five warmest Octobers have all occurred since 2015.
Trump and the GOP may be eroding the democratic foundations of our society but it's still getting warmer out there.
