General - Yale Climate Connections - Key Takeaway: *The data are making it increasingly hard to deny the reality and threats of human-caused climate change and the need for serious actions to address it.*
Every year now seems to be setting some sort of climate record. 2014 was the hottest year on record despite lacking an El Niño. 2015 quickly smashed that record, only to see it again shattered in 2016. 2017 then beat out 2014 to become the hottest year on record without an El Niño (both were neutral years). And now 2018 has become by far the hottest La Niña year ever recorded.
