DISCUSSION: As various emissions from various fossil fuels and other anthropogenic (i.e., human-derived) by-products of day-to-day life continue to persist and quite possibly increase with time, there are expected to be corresponding consequences on both domestic and international temperature trends as we move forward in time. Having said that, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as well as other scientific committees have continued to pursue/investigate the likelihood of variable temperature changes. On that note, there are clear indications that there will be substantial warming in the coming years and decades nation-wide as various human-derived factors come together to trigger a notable increase in the number of days above both 85°F, 90°F, 95°F, and 100°F + . Hence, there is little to no doubt that the planet will continue to experience more net warming in many places which will amplify the net issues of planetary warming.
