NASA Director Gavin Schmidt says it's hard to predict warming far trend far into the future because it depends on whether we reduce greenhouse gas emissions, "and we aren't able to tell you by looking at the past how society will actually react to this information."
NOAA and NASA say say it's pretty much a forgone conclusion the earth will keep breaking heat records in this new decade.
And as Arctic sea ice shrinks it warms the arctic, leading to a feedback loop melting more ice, warming more melting more ice etc. That's one reason you see warming happening faster in the Arctic. https://t.co/3wOvkVHQpM
Here you see a concurrent rise in warming of the ocean. https://t.co/bz5q7r6LIn
This slide shows how closely different data sets of global temperature rise line up. Hard to believe people still question this trend when it's verified by so many different sources. https://t.co/dcwMTwlkUd
This slide shows how we haven't had a single year that's cooler than normal since the late 70s. Every decade since then has increased in average temp from the previous one. https://t.co/NCs6OzyDFV

Worth noting that Todd Staples, current head of TXOGA, was among a group of Texas leaders that sued the EPA in 2010 to block it from regulating CO2 emissions. At that time he said the rules were based on "fabricated science." texasagriculture.gov/Portals/0/DigA… twitter.com/MoseBuchele/st…

Also pretty sure it's a gray fox not a coyote. I've been seeing them around for years.
