    Say Goodbye to a Historic El Niño and Hello to La Nina Marko

    "Still, even with a potential La Niña on the way, 2016 is on track to become the hottest year in recorded history, beating out 2015, Maddie Stone notes for Gizmodo. April 2016 was the 12th consecutive warmest month on record. She explains that even with the powerful influences of oscillating climate anomalies, "humans now control the master switch when it comes to our planet’s thermostat."

    "Yeah, but my back yard in Illinois had a lot of snow last Winter. And Rush Limbaugh says global warming is a liberal conspiracy & lie, and all the scientists are wrong, while he's right. Nor do I find it mentioned anywhere in my Bible. Therefore global warming is just a hoax."

    "Cycles created several hundred times more hydrocarbon pollution than cars. Hydrocarbons cause cancer, breathing and heart ailments, and contribute to smog."

    "The upshot? Motorcycles were indeed more fuel-efficient than cars and emitted less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, but they emitted far more smog-forming hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen, as well as the toxic air pollutant carbon monoxide. For the most recent model year vehicles tested -- from the '00s -- the motorcycle used 28% less fuel than the comparable decade car and emitted 30% fewer carbon dioxide emissions, but it emitted 416% more hydrocarbons, 3,220% more oxides of nitrogen and 8,065% more carbon monoxide."
