    The climate crisis surged to new heights across the globe in 2020. Dams burst and forests burned. Homes toppled and flood after flood of ocean water inundated coastal towns. In the US, no region was spared. Extreme wildfires, hurricanes, heat waves, and flood-inducing storms battered all regions of the US.

    A polar vortex brought record-breaking temperature lows to the Northeast, and heat waves brought new highs to the West. That heat dried out the landscape, which later fed an unprecedented wave of wildfires in late summer.

    On the other side of the US, a stunning hurricane season battered the Gulf Coast and the Southeast with more powerful cyclones than any previous year on record. The centre of the country, meanwhile, endured record storms, floods, and tornado swarms.

    A post by Steve Poplar on the weather in California. In November of last year, all the "scientists" were predicting continued severe drought for the foreseeable future and no snow in the mountains and the rivers drying up...Oops!
