JAKARTA – July 2023 is designated as a month hotter all time broke the previous record in 1880. This fact was communicated by scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) owned by the United States Aeronautics and Space Agency or the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA).
In their observations, July 2023 had a temperature 0.24 degrees Celsius warmer than other Julys. Additionally, July 2023 was 1.18 degrees Celsius warmer than the same month from 1951 to 1980.
“NASA has confirmed that July 2023 will be the hottest month on record. Every place on Earth is now feeling the direct effects of the climate crisis,” said Bill Nelson, a top NASA official.
“The answer is very clear, we must act immediately to protect people and this planet which is the only thing we have,” he added.
To arrive at this conclusion, NASA collected temperature data from all over the Earth using tens of thousands of metrology stations. In addition, they also record sea surface temperatures using information from ships and buoys.
The data is then analyzed using a method that takes into account the spacing of temperature stations which vary around the world. Furthermore, they also consider the effects of district heating which can distort the calculations.
“This July is not only hotter than the previous July. This is the warmest month on record since 1880,” said Gavin Schmidt, director of GISS.
He said it was scientifically clear that this condition was not normal. Furthermore, the warming that is occurring on Earth today is due to the emission of greenhouse gases. “Rising average temperatures are fueling dangerous extreme heat that people are experiencing here at home and around the world,” she explained.
