It’s official, 2014  is the hottest year on record. Last year was the hottest on Earth since record-keeping began in 1880, scientists reported on Friday, underscoring warnings about the risks of runaway greenhouse-gas emissions and undermining claims by climate-change contrarians that global warming had somehow stopped. And if the temperature record isn’t enough for you, […]
