"Shocking Global Warming Image Shows How Winter Turned Into Summer"

“A huge, lingering ridge of high pressure over the eastern half of the United States brought summer-like temperatures to North America in March 2012,” NASA writes. “The warm weather shattered records across the central and eastern United States and much of Canada.” The heat wave was powered by the hundreds of billions of tons of greenhouse pollution dumped in the atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels. “The intensity and scope of the heat wave is clearly visible in this map of land surface temperature anomalies.”

Based on data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on the Terra satellite, the map depicts temperatures from March 8–15 compared to the average of the same eight day period of March from 2000-2011.
