NY: 3 to 5 inches of snow on top of bitter cold attributed to frigid air streaming in from Canada courtesy of a dip in the polar vortex.

Three degrees this morning on City Island - A Slice of New York City Paradise. A high ribbon of air circles the north pole. The Northeast, especially from the Adirondacks into northern Maine, is taking the biggest hit from the cold air. Air temperatures -- not counting wind chill -- are expected to plunge to 30 below zero or colder. When you add in the wind, places like Whiteface Mountain could feel like 70 degrees below zero.

With all the flooding around us as a result of global warming, scientists are now warning that all rainwater is extremely dangerous to us.

The trouble is, the hottest part of summer is still ahead. For most of humanity, that means there will be too much time spent as a sweaty, sticky mess.

These are the hottest summers in recorded history, and for multiple years to come. This is an issue for all continents, demographics, and people from different walks of life.

After being lied to for years by The GOP about climate change, set your eyes on Agatha and realize these lies could be killing us.

Hurricane Agatha, one of the earliest and strongest hurricanes on record to strike North America from the Pacific, makes landfall in Mexico, according to forecasters.

Hurricane Agatha made history as the strongest hurricane ever recorded to come ashore in May during the eastern Pacific hurricane center, making landfall on a sparsely populated stretch of small beach towns and fishing villages in southern Mexico.
