National monuments are established under the Antiquities Act of 1906 that gives Presidents the power […]Continue Reading →
I read two different studies this week that are connected but were not related in the media.
The first is record warmth across the country. Denver recorded 80 degrees in mid-November. And 29 states had the warmest December ever recorded. Instead of a white Christmas, it was 70 degrees on Christmas Eve in Vermont!
