Fact of the Week

WEEK of MAY 21, 2018

Last month marked the planet's 400th consecutive month with above-average temperatures, according to federal scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Need help with the math? That means December of 1984 was the last time the Earth had a cooler-than-average month. The cause for the streak? Unquestionably, it's climate change, caused by humanity's burning of fossil fuels. In an odd twist, while much of the world had its warmest April on record, the average U.S. temperature was just 48.9 degrees, 2.2 degrees below average, "making it the 13th-coldest April on record and the coldest since 1997," NOAA said.
