It's Been Really Freaking Hot This Summer

There have been record high temperatures all over the US and it's been 100 out again in DC this week.  Dealing with the heat can be a miserable endeavor and a shock to your electric bill as the AC cranks but it's nothing compared to the drought issues the same global heat wave has been contributing to or the fact that all of the ice in Greenland is melting...

That's a pretty scary picture, details and context from NASA available here.  Suffice it to say that the scientists working on this thought for sure that their instruments were malfunctioning at first.
