I've been away from Google+ for quite some time now - is it still a good platform for discussions and exchange of ideas?

Well once again we are breaking records:

""The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for May 2015 was the highest for May in the 136-year period of record, at 0.87°C (1.57°F) above the 20th century average of 14.8°C (58.6°F), surpassing the previous record set just one year ago by 0.08°C (0.14°F)"

"Turning to the global picture, meeting our two-degree commitment in a cost-effective way means leaving all unconventional oil and 82 per cent of unconventional gas resources in the ground, according to the model. That means Canada's tar sands and the 100 billion barrels of oil estimated to exist in the Arctic would need to go untouched, the paper explains"
