It's Getting Hotter! Global temperature continues to rise.

Did you know the five and ten year global mean temperatures reached their highest values on record? With 2012-2016 and 2007-2016 respectively being 0.65°C and 0.57°C above the 1961-1990 average. Each of the 16 years since 2001 has been at least 0.4ºC above the 1961-1990 average, a mark which, prior to 2001, had only been reached once, in 1998. Global temperatures continue to be consistent with a warming trend of 0.1ºC to 0.2ºC per decade. (From the WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate in 2016)

It's more important than ever to seal air ducts tight and coat roofs white to reduce heat gain in homes, offices, apartments, stores and all building types. RCD's #6 Mastic® and #15 Weather Barrier Coating® are the best choice for improving indoor comfort and saving energy.

Did you know the size of the Antartic ozone hole has stabilized, with no significant trend since 1998? (From the WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate in 2016)
