Monday Was Hottest Day Ever

The Earth suffered through the hottest day it has ever experienced on Monday, July 3. Temperatures hit an average of 62.46 degrees Fahrenheit or 17.01 degrees Celsius. This may not sound too high, but remember, it was a worldwide average.

The previous record was set less than a year ago on July 24, 2022. That was 62.45 degrees F and 16.92 C. And we can expect more records such as this to be set in the near future.

It seems like every year now we see new record temperatures. The weather reports on the news in the summer say that temperatures will be “higher than average” for this time of year so frequently that they should just redefine “normal” already.

Climate change is real and it’s happening because of changes made by people to the world’s natural environment.

The heatwave that led to this record-breaking temperature was widespread, affecting many parts of the world. In the United States, temperatures soared above 100 degrees Fahrenheit in many states, including California, Texas, and Arizona. In China, temperatures reached 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas. And even Antarctica, which is currently in its winter, registered anomalously high temperatures.

This record-breaking heat is a reminder of the effects of climate change. As the planet warms, heat waves are becoming more common and more intense. This is a serious threat to human health and well-being, and it is important to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.

Some of the factors that contributed to the record-breaking heat on July 3, 2023 were a strong El Niño event – a climate pattern that causes warmer than average sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean – a high-pressure system that trapped warm air over much of the globe, and decreasing cloud cover, which allowed more sunlight to reach the Earth’s surface.

These factors combined to create a perfect storm for extreme heat. The effects of this record-breaking heat were felt around the world, and it is a reminder of the challenges that we face as we adapt to a changing climate.

Climate scientist Friederike Otto of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment at Britain’s Imperial College London said, “This is not a milestone we should be celebrating. It’s a death sentence for people and ecosystems.”
