Check out this map showing global temperatures for December-January, as reported in USA TODA on the Mar 18 report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) / NOAA's National Climatic Data Center. In the NOAA/NCDC map areas in red and pink were warmer-than-average, while areas in blue were cooler-than-average. One of the planet's only land areas that had a cooler-than-average winter was eastern North America, which includes the eastern United States and eastern Canada. Areas that saw record warmth those three months include the western U.S. and part of central Siberia and eastern Mongolia.
#artificialturf contributes to climate warming, so let's cool things down and plant grass because #grasscantakemore.
