NOAA and communities to map heat inequities in 14 U.S. cities and counties

“Extreme heat kills more Americans than any other weather event and has the greatest impact on our nation's most vulnerable communities,” said Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves. “Fortunately, our talented and dedicated researchers and scientists at NOAA are working directly with communities across the country to help them take action to manage extreme heat. As climate change worsens heat waves, this critical information will help bring local and equitable solutions for those facing the greatest threats.”

It’s official: July was Earth’s hottest month on record

“In this case, first place is the worst place to be,” said NOAA Administrator Rick Spinrad, Ph.D. “July is typically the world’s warmest month of the year, but July 2021 outdid itself as the hottest July and month ever recorded. This new record adds to the disturbing and disruptive path that climate change has set for the globe.”

The Climate Crisis

By Bill McKibben

We all live in two worlds: a physical one and a social one. The new report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which was released on Monday, is ostensibly about the physical world. It states—even more clearly and forcefully than it has stated in all its reports back to 1995—that humans are wrecking that physical world. Setting it on fire.

Assessing the U.S. Climate in June 2021

The June contiguous U.S. temperature was 72.6°F, 4.2°F above the 20th-century average, ranking warmest in the 127-year record and surpassing the previous record for June set in 2016 by 0.9°F. The year-to-date average temperature for the contiguous U.S. was 49.3°F, 1.7°F above the 20th-century average, ranking in the warmest third of the January-June record.

Watching the Land Temperature Bell Curve Heat Up (1950-2020)

This visualization shows that as land temperatures have increased since 1950, hotter days have become more common and colder days have become less common.

Global death rate from rising temperatures projected to surpass the current death rate of all infectious diseases combined

How much is temperature to blame when hospital visits surge during heat waves and cold spells? What role might adaptations like indoor heating and cooling systems play in blunting those effects? And, at what cost? A new study from the Climate Impact Lab, published today by the National Bureau of Economic Research, takes on these questions and finds that in a world with continued high fossil-fuel emissions, warmer temperatures will rank among the world’s most significant public health threats by the end of the century.

Newly released satellite data reveals the patterns of record warmth in 2019

Last year was the second-warmest on record for the globe, but in many places, such as Australia and Alaska, temperatures were unprecedented in modern record-keeping. This is known from data gathered by thermometers at the Earth’s surface, and analyzed by agencies such as NASA, NOAA and the U.K. Met Office.

2,000 years of Earth’s climate in one simple chart – and the copycat that isn’t what it seems

By Jeff Berardelli

What were global temperatures the year Jesus was born, during the 12th century when Genghis Khan ruled the Mongol Empire, and in 1503 when Leonardo da Vinci started painting the Mona Lisa — and how do they compare with temperatures in our modern world? There’s now a chart for that.
