NASA scientist: July may be the warmest month on record

By 07/21/2023 9:11 AMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff


According to top NASA meteorologist Gavin Schmidt, July 2023 will likely be the world’s hottest month in “hundreds, if not thousands, of years.”

According to tools run by the European Union and the University of Maine, which incorporate ground and satellite data into models to produce early estimates, this month has already seen daily records broken.

Schmidt said in a NASA briefing with reporters that although they varied slightly from one another, the pattern of high heat is undeniable and would probably be mirrored in the more thorough monthly data released later by US agencies.

The heat waves we’re experiencing in the US, Europe, and China are shattering records left, right, and center, he continued.

We are witnessing unprecedented shifts all over the planet. Additionally, the consequences cannot be simply linked to the El Nino weather phenomenon, which “has really only just emerged.” Even while El Nino is only slightly contributing, “what we’re seeing is the overall warmth, pretty much everywhere, especially in the oceans, where we’ve been seeing record-breaking sea surface temperatures for several months now, even outside of the tropics.

And we will expect that to continue, and the reason we believe that will continue is that we keep adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.
The likelihood that 2023 will set a record for being the warmest year on record is rising as a result of what is currently taking place; Schmidt gave this possibility a “50-50 chance” based on his calculations, though he noted that other scientists have given it an 80 percent chance.

However, we predict that 2024 will be an even warmer year because it will begin with the El Nino event that is currently intensifying and will peak at the end of this year.

Schmidt’s concerns come at a time when the world has been shaken by fires, urgent health advisories, broken temperature records, and other events during the past week.
