July was recorded as the hottest month EVER recorded on earth! So all you folks that don’t believe global warming is real it looks like this is some pretty good proof that the planet is getting hotter and that could mean some real problems in the future.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, global temperatures averaged 62.13 degrees in July, which is 1.71 degrees higher than the 20th-century average. This July bested July 2016 for the hottest month on record by 0.05 degrees, since scientists began keeping track of temperature data in 1880.
The scientists also released geographical data, noting that the areas where temperatures varied furthest from averages, were Alaska, central Europe, northern and southwestern parts of Asia, and certain regions in Africa and Australia. In the third week of July, heat waves across the U.S. sparked temperatures in cities like New York City, Little Rock, AK, and Memphis, to reach record-breaking highs.
