Climate Extremes of 2011: part two

This is part two of my recap of climate extremes globally for 2011. The first video dealt with the global effects in other countries for almost the first half of 2011. This part deals with the U.S.experiencing a taste of what the world has been seeing. Part 3 coming up will deal with the global effects from the second half of 2011 with some other information added. I hope this is at least informative and puts the totality and urgency of what we now face into perspective. I can say that making this even though I already understand these effects has been a sad and sobering experience.

My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones, homes, wildlife and farms.
2012 must be the year we collectively wake up.
