Climate change deniers will continue to ignore the evidence despite being people who claim to "follow the evidence". I new study has emerged, another her in the plethora of research that continues to support the conclusion that the earth is warming as result of man-made influences, that states 2014 has been the warmest year ever recorded. http://www2.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/publications/bulletin-of-the-american-meteorological-society-bams/state-of-the-climate/state-of-climate-in-2014/ The American meteorological Society, has released the numbers of the state of climate change and the results aren't good.
