Roommates, when we say it’s been a hot girl summer the emphasis really needs to be on the HOT part cause weather experts have confirmed this past July was the hottest month ever recorded. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), July 2019 is the hottest month ever recorded on earth.

Apparently the average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees above the average which is 60.4 degrees F. Breaking the record held by July of 2016 coincidentally. The most alarming part about all of this is that 9 of the 10 hottest Julys have happened since 2005 and the last 5 have happened in the last 5 years. Meaning every year it’s getting hotter and hotter.

As we all know, extreme heat isn’t good news for the arctic. The record high temperatures have also shrank the Arctic and Antarctic sea ice to historic lows, according to NOAA.

Safe to say if you think climate change isn’t a real thing, the proof is staring at you right in the face. There’s been much debate about climate change and how it’s effecting the planet. AS temperature’s rise, it seems more parts of the planet are being affected. We’ll be sure to keep you posted Roommates!
