Yeah, so we know hot weather is the “new normal,” but how hot has it really gotten? Pretty hot, actually.
From Now This News:
The U.S. and other members of the World Meteorological Organization are required to update their climate normals every decade. When those averages are seen side by side, the fast pace of our changing climate is illustrated.
Comparing the stats from 1991 to 2020 against the stats from 1901 to 1930, average temperatures across a large portion of the country have risen by 1°F to 2°F, and no part of the country is cooler now than it was during the 20th century.
I miss wearing coats in the winter.
