In the entire history of observations, carried 136 years, the Earth did not know such a hot month like July 2016. This was stated by experts from the American space Agency NASA. In recent times an unprecedented hot months have become almost the norm, say climate scientists.
Previously, the title of the hottest month in the history of the “shared” July 2015 and 2011 which was recorded around the same temperature. However, the new record was 0.18 degrees Celsius higher than the previous one.
It is worth noting that in July 2016 was not only recorded the highest average temperature on the planet, but come, according to meteorologists, the hottest day on the planet. Record temperature — 54 degrees Celsius — was recorded on 20 July in the town of al-Mutriba in the North-West of Kuwait.
July was the fifteenth consecutive month, declared the warmest in the history of observation. However, many experts admit that a series of records will continue, at least until the end of the year. In 2017 the Earth can wait for a cold due to natural cycles, but in the future, in all probability, the increase in monthly average temperatures will resume, and the main role in this will play it is human activity.
Commenting on another record, a climate scientist Chris field of Stanford University called a frightening trend in which temperature records become common, but their absence is a surprise, reports “bi-Bi-si”.
Recently a rather eloquent confirmation of global warming was observed by the inhabitants of Udmurtia, where the tree bloomed for the second time this year, according to izhlife.ru. It is assumed that the reason for this can be established in the region unusually warm weather.
