NOAA says July was the hottest month on Earth since record-keeping began

July 2021 was officially the hottest month on Earth since record-keeping began. That’s according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

NOAA announced their findings on Friday, calling it an unenviable distinction and part of a worsening trend related to climate change.

Earlier last week the United Nations released an international climate report that documented unprecedented impacts of warming.

NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information shows the average worldwide land and ocean surface temperature in July was 1.67 degrees hotter than the 20th century average. Records were first kept 142 years ago.

2021 is expected to be one of the ten hottest years on record.

Why didn’t the NOAA talk about how they adjust data points, similar to what NASA did with satellite data? How about the sensors that are mounted in urban “heat islands” which throw the readings off? How about the lack of accuracy of the readings from 142 years ago due the equipment at the time? How about the addition of more sensors in more areas that can mess up the world “average” (though to be fair those might have been excluded from the comparison – but I doubt it).

It’s all narrative driven and lying by omission…
