If you don’t think that global warming is real, well…I don’t even know what to say anymore.

I think the past several years in particular have proved that the planet is getting hotter and the weather is becoming more extreme.

And this year has been a doozy…

Take a look at these photos people shared that prove just how hot this year has been…let’s hope it doesn’t get too much worse.
