2010 is on pace to be the hottest year on record. A new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council asks whether the U.S. is facing its “Worst Summer Ever?” because of high temperatures not only during the day, but even at night. Florida temperatures are also breaking records this summer. Daniel Lashof is director of NRDC’s climate center.
