Apollo News Snippets – February 2018

This sobering map shows temperature departures across the globe when 2017 is considered in sum – the map is all red, meaning it was hot hot hot this year…
  • With December comes a review of our planet’s warming trends in 2017 and the news folks is not good. According to the monthly NOAA climate report, 2017 was the third warmest year on record as was December 2017 the third hottest December on record. There were widespread pockets of record warmth across the globe but no record cold spots – when will the Trump administration get the message that climate change is not a hoax?!
  • In honor of Apache Chief Geronimo’s death on February 17, 1909, this month’s Google search was, “Geronimo and GIS.” If you look through the results you get, you might find this dissertation by Ezra Zeitler of the University of Nebraska where he explores American Indian team names and mascots at the secondary education level. While a bit dated as the work is from 2008, it can help provide historical perspective on a rapidly changing news topic.
