Apollo News Snippets – September 2016

  • The latest NOAA climate report confirms that we are 15 for 15 with the July combined land and water temperature besting the record set just last month. This is also the 40th July in a row where temperatures were above the 20th Century average. To be fair, July 2016 was the lowest departure from average since August 2015 – but really, is this a good thing since that was just 11 months ago?

  • On September 17, 1862 some 26,000 US troops died at Antietam, Maryland and in honor of this the bloodiest day in US military history my Google Search of the month was, “Antietam and GIS.” Your search might lead you to this website with some very detailed KMZs that illustrate the events of this fateful battle. The site was put together by Professor Peter Guth of the United States Naval Academy.
