It's summer, and temperature is rising. More than ever, according to recent data. According to the Guardian and many other sources, it was the hottest June ever:
'The trend to a warmer world is now incontrovertible. According to NOAA, June was the 304th consecutive month with a combined global land and surface temperature above the 20th-century average. The last month with below-average temperatures was February 1985. Each of the 10 warmest average global temperatures recorded since 1880 have occurred in the last 15 years with the previous warmest first half of a year in 1998. '
Our colleagues from climateprogress have more additional information. Their rhetorical style is interesting: other climaxes are presented as 'coincidence'; without comment Oklahoma and Tennessee deluges (500 year and 1000 year events) are added. It's the style of 'one is not even allowed to speak out or draw conclusions that are more than obvious'. I am not a climate scientist. So, klimazwiebel scientists, bitte übernehmen Sie, it's your turn.
