There are over two months left in the year, but that hasn’t stopped NASA from suggesting that 2016 will be the hottest on record . The planet has been on a heat streak for some time and the latest projections show that this September will the hottest in 136 years of record keeping – and it’s pretty safe to say that the entire year will follow suit. Gavin Schmidt, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), made a 99 percent certain prediction that 2016 would top the charts all the way back in May, and the newest GISS data shows he was right on track. Last month was .91 degrees Celsius above the baseline period average, coming in a .004 degree hair ahead of September, 2014. This individual month’s data, when added to the numbers recorded for the entire year, paint a fiery picture for climate change ‘s effect on the entirety of 2016.

Jeremy Shakun, climate scientist from Boston College, told Gizmodo he believes the recent El Niño phenomenon contributed to higher temperatures this year and that next year will not be so dire. “Nonetheless,” he said, “the important thing is the long-term warming trend.” If we can continue racing to meet the Paris climate agreement ’s goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, we might have a fighting chance to stop the trend from continuing.

Comments Off on July was the hottest month in recorded history

Last month was the hottest month, ever; not in California or even all of America, but in the whole recorded weather history of the planet. Phys.org reports that the first seven months of 2015 were the warmest since modern weather records began in 1880, and this past July was the warmest month ever entered into those records. The average July temperature across land and sea surfaces around the world was 61.86 degrees F (16.61 Celsius), cracking the previous record set in 1998.

I know, I know, you’ve heard it all before, but the latest data shows this year is on its way to being the hottest year on record , and we are only halfway through 2015. So far, June was the hottest June in all the 136 years that we have been keeping track, and the rest of the year is likely to follow suit. Read the rest of How hot is too hot for humans?

2011 Was the 11th Hottest Year on Record

Comments Off on 2011 Was the 11th Hottest Year on Record

An average global temperature of 57.9 degrees Fahrenheit marked 2011 as the 11th hottest year on record. At a full 0.9 degrees warmer than the 20th century average, this past year was hotter than every year in the last century except for 1998. The sentiment among  climate scientists is that higher temperatures are largely sustained by increased concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, especially  carbon dioxide emissions from human activity. This means that if global emissions aren’t curbed and development continues without consideration for climate, the future will be full of freaky storms, extreme weather, and even more record-breaking weather anomolies.
