We found an article in Scientific American of interest. “First Half of 2016 Blows Away Temperature Records”


Key points from the article include:

  • 2016 is on track to surpass 2015 as the hottest year on record as a result of a strong El Niño and the excess heat in Earth’s atmosphere due to greenhouse gases
  • Every month this year has been a record high month globally, several of which exceeded 1.8 °F higher than average, making a streak of 14 straight record-hot months
  • Year-to-date is 1.89°F above the 20th century average, according to NOAA
