"It's official: July 2021 was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth
illustrating just how real the consequences of climate change are.

Confirming the statistic, Rick Spinrad of the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the U.S. said that the new record
"adds to the disturbing and disruptive path that climate change has set for
the globe".

July 2021's global surface temperature was recorded as being 0.93 degrees
Celsius above average, placing it higher than the previous record set in
2016, 2019, and 2020 by 0.01 degrees.

In the Northern Hemisphere, the temperatures recorded on land surfaces were
the highest ever – a scary 1.54 degrees Celsius above average, while Asia
also experienced the hottest July ever since temperatures temperature
records began.
Such clear changes to the climate provide clear proof of the harm caused by
fossil fuel industries.

According to a new United Nations climate report, there is now evidence
that these sectors have clearly affected the weather on a global scale, and
that everywhere in the world bar the polar regions has experienced more and
more extreme heat events since the 1950s."
