We have had a great day in Ft. Pierce Inlet State Park. Lots of people stopped by the booth to learn about birds.
As posted by the Alt National Park Service:
“Climate change update: According to a new report from the National Centers for Environmental Information, a division of NOAA, “in 2017 the U.S. experienced 16 weather and climate disasters with losses exceeding $1 billion, with total costs of approximately $306 billion—a new U.S. annual record.” The federal agency listed several events, including the wildfires in the west, with total costs of $18 billion, tripling the previous U.S. annual wildfire cost record. Hurricane Harvey had total costs of $125 billion. Hurricanes Maria and Irma had total costs of $90 billion and $50 billion, respectively. 2005 was the previous most expensive year for the U.S., with losses of $215 billion mostly due to Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, and Rita. The report noted that 2017 was the third warmest year since record-keeping began in 1895. The average annual temperature for the contiguous U.S. last year was 54.6 degrees Fahrenheit, 2.6 degrees above the 20th-century average.” Full report can be found at the link: Climate Change Update
