No, it’s not just your city that was burning up this summer. Unprecedented heat around the world vaulted September 2020 to the hottest September in recorded history, according to scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The month’s warmth also contributed to 2020’s trend as a remarkably hot year overall, with the year-to-date global temperatures running second highest in the 141-year climate record.
Not suprisingly, that also means Arctic sea ice coverage was at near-record lows, ranking second smallest on record. The 14 smallest minimum annual extents have occurred in the last 14 years.
But you know, climate change isn’t real—it’s just a partisan issue.
