There’s no doubt: it’s hot and weird out.
According to officials with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) July was the hottest month ever recorded, putting 2015 well on track to beat out 2014 for the hottest year on record. Records date back to 1880.
NOAA climate scientists Jake Crouch said the new data “just affirms what we already know: that the Earth is warming.”
“The warming is accelerating and we’re seeing it this year.”
