Infographic during the day: Guess how hot Atlanta can get by 2100?
It’s a warm one today-having a smog alert, as well. Especially following a couple of unseasonably (and gloriously) awesome days, maybe this is the time to remain inside and look for this “1001 Blistering Future Summers” interactive from Nj-based news and research nonprofit Climate Central.
