Apollo News Snippets – July 2019

The May 2019 NOAA temperature departure map shows pocket of record warmth along Brazil’s coastline and in southern Africa; while the middle of North America and much of western Europe saw cooler spring temperatures.
  • The new and improved (well the data they use at least) May 2019 NOAA Global Climate report is out and well of course, it was warm – as it has been this entire decade. May 2019 was the 4th warmest May on record, following 2016, 2015 and then 2017 – notice a trend? The global temperature was some 0.85 degrees Celsius (1.53 degrees Fahrenheit) above the 20th Century average, do think if we were a full 1 degree Celsius above average the Trump administration would act then? I think you know the answer to that question…
  • Did you know July 2nd is World UFO day? Well I didn’t either so in honor of this conspiracy-happy holiday, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and UFO.” And well, wouldn’t you know it, there is actually a website dedicated to UFO sightings and airport proximity. So cool and nerdy, thanks Michigan State University students Cast, Heymes and Schrantz!
