If the pictures of those towering wildfires in Colorado haven't convinced you, or the size of your AC bill this summer, here are some hard numbers about climate change: June broke or tied 3,215 high-temperature records across the United States. That followed the warmest May on record for the Northern Hemisphere – the 327th consecutive month in which the temperature of the entire globe exceeded the 20th-century average, the odds of which occurring by simple chance were 3.7 x 10-99, a number considerably larger than the number of stars in the universe.

Meteorologists reported that this spring was the warmest ever recorded for our nation – in fact, it crushed the old record by so much that it represented the largest temperature departure from average of any season on record. The same week, Saudi authorities reported that it had rained in Mecca despite a temperature of 109 degrees, the hottest downpour in the planet's history.

    The number of words in the English language is: 1,041,257.5.  This is the estimate by the Global Language Monitor for January 1, 2017.

    UPDATE:  March 23 2017 (Originally AUSTIN, Texas July 15-17, 2016) – Bigly, Brexit, and ‘Non-binary’ lead the Top Trending Words and Phrases of 2016 thus far, followed by the Prince Symbol, Zika, Gun Violence / Gun Culture, Safe Place, Heroin and fentanyl according to the current word trends in global English being tracked by the Global Language Monitor, the big-data, trend-tracking consultancy.

    Of all the humanitarian issues on which Trump might have taken a passionate position, chemical weapons turned out to be what motivated him. This says a great deal about chemical weapons’ psychological power.

    One of the most misunderstood concepts in the Word of God is Firstfruits.  This was God''''s way of saying to us, "If  you will give your best, I will make sure you enter into the best that I have for you!"   Each month at Glory of Zion International we enter into a Firstfruits Celebration.  We always release the blessings associated with the month and offer the Lord the best we have to give. 

    Global Spheres is built upon a Firstfruits understanding.  Peter has written an awesome article to help you understand the concept of Firstfruits, "Making Firstfruits Practical".   You will enjoy reading that article below.

    Like it or not, English is the global language of business. Today 1.75 billion people speak English at a useful level that’s one in four of us. Multinational companies such as Airbus, Daimler-Chrysler, SAP, Nokia, Alcatel-Lucent, and Microsoft in Beijing have mandated English as the corporate language. And any company with a global presence or global aspirations would be wise to do the same, says HBS professor Tsedal Neeley, to ensure good communication and collaboration with customers, suppliers, business partners, and other stakeholders.

    But while moving toward a single language at work is necessary and inevitable, Neeley’s research shows that implementing such a policy is fraught with complications. English-only policies can create job insecurity and dissatisfaction and generate strife between native and nonnative English speakers in cross-national teams.

    Is this for an English class? Spelling is okay. Only a few minor grammar errors. Very dramatic. Content? Regurgitated Global Warming propaganda; many mis-statements and mis-characterizations; nothing that can be supported in fact; most can be refuted easily.

    1) This isn t math, it belongs in environmental science. 2) We don t know enough to be able to answer that question. If it is man made, we should be able to at least reduce it. If it is completely natural, there is nothing we can or should try to do.

    I would give you a 10/12 (5/6) I think it is a little short and unfortunately on the SAT they do care about length (which I don t think they should). Your essay has good examples and is well-written but it could benefit from having another example. You don t always need 3 but if you can think of 3 good ones and have enough time to write them, then do 3.
