WASHINGTON (AP) — NASA calculates that Earth just broiled to its hottest month in recorded history.
Even after the fading of a strong El Nino, which spikes global temperatures on top of man-made climate change, July burst global temperature records.
NASA calculates that July 2016 was 1.51 degrees Fahrenheit (0.84 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 1950-1980 global average. NASA chief climate scientist Gavin Schmidt said that’s about .18 degrees hotter than the previous top temperatures, in July 2011 and July 2015.
Scientists blame mostly man-made climate change from the burning of fossil fuel, with an extra jump from the now-gone El Nino, which is a natural temporary warming of parts of the Pacific Ocean that changes weather worldwide.
