If you’ve gone outside sometime over the last month, it probably won’t come as much surprise to you that November is shaping up to be one of the warmest ever on record in New York. 

From the summer-like start of the month to the positively balmy Thanksgiving Day parade last week, the start to the holiday season this year has felt a lot more Christmas in July. Or at least Christmas in mid-September. 

The previous record for warmest November in NYC was set way back in 1931 with an average of 59.9 degrees. Currently, the average is hovering a bit over 60 degrees.

And NYC isn’t alone. Newark, Atlantic City and Philadelphia have all had warmer-than-average temperatures this month and appear to be on track to break records as well.

Hope those climate talks in Paris are going well!

This is not something to take lightly. Climate change (pollution, forest destruction, etc) is REAL and every day brings us closer to irreversible consequences. Please if you're reading this find ANY way to speak out about this issue. Call your local legislators, speak to your friends about it, and change your own habits to help save the world. We all have to do this together!
