“Come in from the cold to try our winter menu.”

2015 was the warmest December in Washington, DC, history – “This year is expected to be the first year in which global average surface temperatures are at least 1 degree Celsius, or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, above average, meaning that the world is already halfway to the 2-degree Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, global warming target, and even closer to a more stringent 1.5-degree target mentioned in the recently negotiated Paris Agreement.” – via
