This shows how temperatures are rising in the United States and Canada in unsual ways during unsusual times. Tempuratures up to 80 degrees in the middle of March. And the temperatures keep changing there is more problems comming up in our climate as time goes by. If we want to turn this climate change back around we can't just stop what we are doing to cause this. We need to change what we are doing before it gets to the point where we can't change it back.

I think its interesting how temperatures are making records. I think it could be a cause of what we put into the atmosphere that can be effecting our abnormal temp. changes.

I agree, I think we need to go back and change what we are doing before it gets to the point where you can't change it back. But first we need to figure out what the problem is, and why our climate is changing so significantly from it.
