Time to make DC a carbon-free zone.
“2012 was a year of crazy weather in Washington, D.C. from the nearly snowless winter to the summer’s scorching heat and high energy derecho to Superstorm Sandy. But the year will have an asterisk next to it for achieving perhaps the most remarkable milestone: warmest on record. The record will be broken by a landslide. With only a few days left in the year, D.C. should finish 1.3 degrees F warmer than the previous warmest year on record, 1991. D.C.’s weather records date back to 1871.” [Washington Post]
