SCIENTISTS CONFIRM JULY SET GLOBAL HEAT RECORD.

8/16/19 The Denver Post share

BERLIN » July was the hottest month measured on Earth since records began in 1880, the latest in a long line of peaks that scientists say backs up predictions for man-made climate change.

 

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday that July was 1.71 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the 20th-century average of 60.4 degrees for the month.

Because July is generally the warmest month on the calendar, meteorologists say this means it also set an all-time monthly record for the past 140 years.

Last month’s temperatures narrowly topped the previous July record, set in 2016, by five-hundredths of a degree.
