Yesterday was the hottest day in recorded history.  This story has gotten a fair amount of coverage, but I think that everyone should be aware of this fact.   We are on the verge of wiping out civilization, if not all human life on earth.  Still, deeply evil people accept money far dirtier than Judas' thirty pieces of silver, to spread propaganda that this is not happening.  These people are mass murderers, and they should be treated that way.
