Strategic CSR - 2014

Here is a great graphic to demonstrate the gradual rise in annual temperatures drawing on over a century's worth of data:
"The [graphic] shows the Earth's warming climate, recorded in monthly measurements from land and sea over 135 years. Temperatures are displayed in degrees above or below the 20th-century average."
Not only was 2014 the hottest year on record, but:
"Thirteen of the 14 hottest years are in the 21st century."
Have a good weekend.
