Terrible Summers in the U.S
The residents in the United States are traumatized with the rising temperatures that have bought them to a point of saturation. After the 1970's this is the first year that U.S. has been witnessing such a drastic climate change and "Global Warming" stands out prominently contributing to these climatic changes.
According to CSMonitor, The National Climatic Data in Asheville, N.C released the data in which the regions between Colorado and Indiana noticed the highest temperature ever between the 27 June and 28 June. The temperature recoded at Norton Dam might surprise us as it touched 118 degrees F according to sources. 23 states from Kansas east to the Carolinas and into the Northeast more than 350 sites across the continent's center have posted daily record highs since June 27. While at the same time the other countries enjoy the low temperature for this time of year.

This climate change was predicted in a study done by the University of California, Los Angeles. The study claimed that the climatic change in Los Angeles will cause the temperatures in Los Angeles region to rise. Probably it will be warmer by about of 4 - 5 degree Fahrenheit by the middle of the century. Tripling the number of extremely hot days in the downtown area and quadrupling the number in the valleys and at high elevations
The alteration in the climate is proving to be a big ordeal for U.S. Recently, in the month of June the U.S Geological Survey had come up with a study in which they claimed that the seas along the East Coast from North Carolina to New England are going to rise at least three to four times faster than the global average. This climate change multiplies the chances of floods in the most densely populated coastal areas of the world causing a threat to the wetland habitats. The sea level on this portion of the coast by 2100 could rise up to 30 centimetres over and above the one-metre global surge projected by scientists.
In such drastic conditions if anyone is looking for a place that would act as protective shield against this increasing temperature is the Northwest. It was observed that the same two day period 57 locations that mostly fell under Washington State recorded one daily high temperature that beat the lowest temperature recorded on the same day. Sources claim that spring in 2012 in the U.S. was 2 degrees warmer than the previous record i.e 1910.
Klaus Wolter, a researcher who specialized in regional climate forecasting at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo, said "Conditions seem to be mimicking last years, with a slight geographic shift. Last year we had all that heat in Texas and Oklahoma. This year, things seem to be shifted a bit further west. Back-to-back years of La Niña conditions have set the stage. Over the past two winters, the US has been affected by back-to-back La Ninas, although the second one was weaker. And while forecasters now expect an El Niño to emerge during the second half of the year, atmospheric circulation patterns can be slow to make the shift. So I'm not surprised we're setting some extreme records."
It was 1910 that U.S felt the same warmth. At the end the researchers again blame 80 percent of the reason to global warming.
